Hull FC claimed their fourth straight Stobart Super League win with a 42-28 success at Castleford.

The Tigers have yet to win since their victory at Salford in round one and suffered another disappointing afternoon despite playing their part in a lively contest.

The lead changed hands on several occasions in a frantic first half at the PROBIZ Coliseum, but Hull took control after the interval and eventually ran out comfortable winners.

Danny Tickle scored one of his side's seven tries and finished with 18 points following a flawless kicking display, while Rangi Chase laid on four scores in a losing cause for Castleford.

Hull claimed an early lead with Tongan forward Sam Moa burrowing under the posts from close range after a succession of penalties had given his team excellent field position.

The hosts responded well and were soon in front.

An excellent break from Chase ended with last year's Man of Steel looping a pass out to the left for Nick Youngquest to go over in the corner.

Tickle then put the restart out of play and Castleford duly crossed again through Jonathan Walker. Kirk Dixon, who had missed with his first kick, added the goal to make it 10-6.

Hull hit back with Willie Manu left with a simple finish after Jordan Turner had burst clear down the wing, only to be stopped inches short of the line.

The impressive Chase provided a second assist, this time for Grant Millington, as Castleford reclaimed the lead before seeing another score disallowed for offside.

Hull then surged in front again through Turner, who provided a further demonstration of his pace by gliding past Josh Griffin.

Tickle maintained his 100% record with the boot and added a further two points on the stroke of half-time after Chase had been penalised for squaring up to Rich Whiting in an off-the-ball incident.

Controversy

There was further controversy prior to Tickle's penalty as Tigers full-back Richard Owen was involved in an angry exchange with the Hull supporters behind the goal.

Tom Briscoe looked to have added a fourth try for the Black and Whites at the start of the second half following more good work from Turner, but the winger was adjudged to have stepped into touch.

A porous Castleford defence was breached again, however, by Tickle, who picked up a knock in the act of scoring, leaving Whiting to miss a tricky touchline conversion.

Another rash of penalties followed as Hull piled on the pressure, culminating in Brett Seymour crossing on the short side. Tickle was able to resume kicking duties and made no mistake.

The Tigers reduced their arrears when Chase found Griffin all alone on the right for a simple score, which Dixon converted.

However, it was Hull who finished much the stronger, with Briscoe representing a particularly potent threat.

The 22-year-old added his name to the scoresheet after a neat offload from Manu, who then grabbed his second try following another fine break from Briscoe.

Brett Ferres went over at the death for Castleford, Chase providing a fourth assist, but that represented little consolation after yet another defeat.
