Tuimavave wants momentum to carry on
Hull FC centre Carlos Tuimavave is hoping the club can reignite their form from 2016 and 2017 when they face Wakefield.
FC are looking for their fourth straight win as Lee Radford’s side have enjoyed a good start to the new Super League campaign.
A win could take them into the top four, and potentially further up if Warrington fail to beat Wigan at home on Friday evening.
It would see them embark on their best run of form since 2017. when they won the Challenge Cup for a second consecutive season, after a nightmare 2018 plagued by injuries and lack of form, as they eventually tumbled to eighth following the conclusion of the Super 8s.
And Tuimavave says their current form brings back memories of those Challenge Cup-winning seasons.
“In the period of the game where we scored 30 unanswered points in the first half, it reminded me a little bit of 2016 and 2017, and the way we played in those two years,” Tuimavave said of the win against Leeds last week.
“Those were two really great years for the club, so if we can get back to that sort of form this season then that would be brilliant.
“We’ve got another tough match coming up against Wakefield, so we are going to have to be on our game. There’s definitely some players in their team that we will have to keep a close eye on but, like I said, hopefully, we can get back to that form we showed in 2016 and 2017.”
