Hull FC Ladies
Hull FC Ladies were unable to mark their first competitive fixture in the Ladies Championship with a victory as they were beaten 40-10 by an impressive Wakefield outfit yesterday.
The newly-formed side were in competitive action for the very first time as they made the trip to Sharlston, West Yorkshire, but it was defeat in their first game.
After being 12-0 down mid-way through the first-half, the Ladies hit back with back-to-back tries from hooker Mia Duke and winger Tanya Hannam to take the score at the break to 12-10.
But Trinity ran away with the scoreline after the break, with braces from Georgia Cutt and Nicola Austin-Dyson claiming the first points of the campaign.
Captain Jenna Greening spoke to hullfc.com, saying : “It was a good run out for our first game in the Championship, and a great team effort.
“Unfortunately our defence let us down in the second-half, but that’s something we’re looking to put right in training, and come back stronger against Stanningley at home next week.”
Next Up: Stanningley Ladies (H)
The Ladies are next in action on Sunday 22nd April as they take on Stanningley in their first home game of the season.
Supporters are welcome to come down to the Bonus Youth Performance Centre, off Pickering Road, and cheer on the Ladies side for free!
Kick-off is at 2pm, so get down and support the girls!
Hull FC U16s Girls
Hull FC’s U16s Girls went down 32-8 to South Leeds Spartans at West Hull on Saturday.
Similarly to the Ladies side, the Girls were well in the contest at the break with the scores at 8-8. However, several injuries in the second-half hampered Hull’s chances as the Spartans ran away with the scoreline.
The Girls finish phase one of the season next week, with results in the first few weeks of the season set to determine which league the side play in for the remainder of the year.
