TOP SCORER SHAUL PRAISES FORWARDS AFTER HAT TRICK

By Tom Stewart | 14/06/2014

Hull FC's talented full back Jamie Shaul made it 12 tries for the season with a hat trick against Widnes yesterday, but heaped praise on the forwards in front of him.

The likes of Liam Watts, Jordan Thompson and Gareth Ellis laid the platform for a scintilating victory, as Hull recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season and two fifty point hauls in succession as they ran out 56-6 winners.

Despite admitting, tongue in cheek, that he had to steal the thunder from fellow hat trick hero Callum Lancaster, the 21-year-old credited the Black and Whites free scoring performance to the hard work of the pack.

"I just couldn't let Callum Lancaster just get three and take the headlines, so i decided to steal his thunder a little bit," he joked as he spoke to hullfc.com after the match.

"The first half was a very tough half I thought our forwards played a big part in laying the platform for us, especially people like Liam Watts who I thought was outstanding in the game. 

"The work that they do goes unnoticed, the likes of me and Callum pick up the accolades for scoring the tries but it really comes down to the work they do through the middle. And players like Liam were outstanding today."

After two huge wins in which Hull have racked up 106 points, it doesn't get much easier next weekend as they travel to France, a journey that will complete a round trip of 2,565 miles covered by the players and fans over the last three matches.

Whilst the Black and Whites were victorious on their last visit to Catalan Dragons with a superb Challenge Cup quarter final win last season, it's been a notably tricky place to play over the last few years.

Shaul added, "We are going to build this week, we come straight back in for recovery and video analysis then a day off on Sunday and then we are straight back at it in the week. It is always difficult going over there so we have got to be switched on. "
