Hull 'confidence' on the up
Rugby League, Updated:
Richard Agar feels a stunning comeback from Hull FC against St Helens on Friday will give his squad "belief and confidence".
The Humberside outfit were 6-22 down at half-time and then 15-26 behind midway through the second half, with Francis Meli scoring a hat-trick for the visitors.
But the home side rallied and stunned Saints by claiming an unlikely victory two minutes from time, with Danny Tickle kicking a drop goal to seal the points.
The victory moves Hull up to fourth in Super League and Agar was full of praise for his team's effort, which he thought was as "good as they could have given".
The coach added: "We can take belief and confidence from this result, our character and composure came through at the end."
