JORDAN Turner expects an improved Hull FC performance when they come to Langtree Park this Friday.
His former employers beat Catalan 36-34 but had to withhold a strong Dragons comeback at the end.
“It was certainly a mixed bag of a game on Friday for Hull,” Turner said. “They ran away with it at first put perhaps, as it was their first game, they hadn’t got that ruthless mentality.
“But you can’t judge sides from their first game and I have no doubt they will want an improved performance against us.
“Lee Radford is a great bloke and a great coach who will get a lot of respect from his players. He’s born and bred in Hull and knows what it is about. He will get the best of the players over there.”
Jordan was heavily involved in Saints first win of the season – firing an excellent pass to Tommy Makinson to level up matters.
“It was a big contrast to the start of last season but now we have put the game to bed, it’s one of 27 rounds, and we have another game to concentrate on.
“The margin of victory might have taken some by surprise and it did us a little. We always have tough games with Warrington and after around 20 minutes we got a foot in and capitalised on some big plays.
“But we have lots to improve on for the next game.
“I saw through pre-season in how much a breath of fresh air Luke Walsh was. Kyle Amor’s performance went under the radar a little too but he is exactly what we were missing last season – more grunt and aggression in the pack.
“As a back you want to play off the back of a team that dominates with big forwards.”
