KC: We Deserved More

KEIRON Cunningham felt his side deserved a lot more following their 32-24 loss at Hull FC this afternoon.

He pointed towards the lop-sided penalty count but praised the players for their effort – especially after they lost Luke Walsh in the first minute.

“My players were outstanding and were hard done to,” he said after the match. “They should have got more from the game. The level of effort went through the roof. Hull are on the crest of a wave and we just fell a little bit short in certain areas.

“But we lost Walsh in the first minute and the penalties were 10-2 in the first half. If anyone says they were eight penalties cleaner than us, I’ll call them a liar. We couldn’t build any pressure.

“It’s frustrating for me as coach but I feel for the players because they don’t get any reward for their efforts. We definitely deserved something out of the game. It’s a bitter pill to swallow.”

He continued: “I’d told my players they should be proud. We fought really hard for each other. If we can bring that fight and resilience every week, we’re not going to be far short.”

Saints will assess Luke Walsh in the next few days but KC suggested his ‘seven’ wouldn’t be available for “a few weeks”.
