Hull FC: Brett Hodgson says it was 'men against boys' in his side's defeat to Wigan Warriors

Brett Hodgson says Hull FC were simply not good in their defeat to Wigan Warriors on Friday night.

His side suffered a 60-0 loss at the DW Stadium, with Bevan French going over for a record-breaking seven tries.

Hodgson states the heavy result was down to a lack of quality in his side, with a number of players missing.

He said: “Wigan were exceptional, it was pretty much men vs boys for the majority of the contest.

“Wigan were hot, it just shows pure speed can kill a team.

“I’m disappointed, and there are obviously reasons for our performance, but it’s still not good enough.

“The effort was there in moments, but the connection wasn’t. I just think we lacked quality.

“When Patrick Mago is carrying it 30 metres from the kick off, you can see what happens when you’ve got that experience running at a weakened team.

“The boys are all hurting extremely and rightly so. We have to pick ourselves up and respond.”
