Agar takes the positives

Richard Agar: Pleased with how his Wakefield side battled back against Hull FC

We finished the stronger side and the players felt if we had another two or three minutes we would have gone on and won the game. Our performance showed a lot about our character.

Wakefield Wildcats boss Richard Agar hailed his side's character after a late fightback just failed to earn them victory at Hull FC.

The hosts were cruising to the win in woeful weather conditions at the KC Stadium after tries from centre Kirk Yeaman and winger Will Sharp.

But late touchdowns for Ben Cockayne and Kyle Wood set-up a nervy finale before Hull held on to inflict a third successive defeat on their former coach's new side.

Agar said: "I thought we were tremendously courageous and had to withstand a lot defensively, but our defence really held up.

"We finished the stronger side and the players felt if we had another two or three minutes we would have gone on and won the game. Our performance showed a lot about our character.

"Hull played with more energy but to come back as we did, we will take a lot out of that performance from a defensive point of view and a character standpoint because we had them on the ropes at the end and they were hanging on for a victory."

Bemoaned weather

Hull coach Peter Gentle bemoaned the weather conditions after his players were forced to hold on for their second home win of the campaign.

"We were in control for a long time and with the field position we had we should have been further ahead. But with the poor weather conditions the game was messy and we were glad to win it in the end. We nearly threw it though," said Gentle.

"It was tough because you train all week to play a certain brand of rugby and then with the weather you have to change that somewhat and we were rehashing things in the dressing room before the game.

"We got the points though so we are happy with that.

"We had more than enough field position and opportunities to put the game to bed and we should have done that.

"We are still struggling with how we want to play and the guys were torn with how we have practised all week and how we had to play in this game because of the weather."
