Radford expects charges to rise to challenge

15th February 2020, 18:21 by Bobbie Jackson

Lee Radford insists his Hull FC charges are up for the fight ahead of hosting St Helens in the Super League on Sunday.

The Airlie Birds have started the 2020 season with back-to-back wins over Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves to sit at the top of the standings.

However, Sunday's home meeting with Saints, who won the League Leaders' Shield and Grand Final in 2019, is set to be their biggest test yet.

Radford acknowledges his men are in for a tough afternoon but is confident they can rise to the occasion.

"The morale is high in the camp. We have have had a nine-day turnaround for this game which helps us slowly build into what is a big fixture for us," Radford told the club's official website.

"They (St Helens) have been the best club in the competition over the past 18 months and they're playing in the World Club Challenge next week which proves they're one of the best sides on the planet at the moment, so we're going to have to be at our best.

"We're excited about the challenge in front of us and challenging them, too."
