Hull response leaves Radford delighted
Hull FC bounced back from last week's heavy loss to Warrington Wolves by triumphing 23-16 at Salford Red Devils on Sunday.
Wing Josh Griffin was the star of the show for the Airlie Birds, as he grabbed a hat-trick against his former club, while Marc Sneyd was his usual reliable self, kicking two conversions, three penalties and a drop goal.
The result has moved Hull back up to fifth in the Super League standings and it has also helped eradicate the memories of last weekend's 63-12 home thrashing at the hands of Warrington.
Radford was certainly pleased with how his side bounced back from that loss, especially as their build up to the match was disrupted due to a bout of illness within the camp.
"The response from last week was outstanding - we've had a few blokes issuing through illness this week so the preparation hasn't been the best," Radford was quoted as saying by the club website.
The 40-year-old also reserved special praise for hat-trick hero Griffin, who spent two-and-a-half years with Salford before joining Hull ahead of the 2017 season.
"I'm over the moon for Josh," Radford added. "When we let a player go, they always have a good performances against us and he did the opposite today against his former team."
