Hull FC were edged out 24-18 by Warrington Wolves at the MKM Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Tries came from Denive Balmforth, Liam Sutcliffe, and Tom Briscoe, with a late try for Matt Dufty earning Wire the win. Here are the ratings:.

Logan Moy - The teenage full-back stood up again at this level. He was a threat running the ball, solid under the high bomb, brought plenty of energy, and added some quality. Really good catch and pass to assist Briscoe's try—could have delivered a couple more too, but still another promising account. 8

Tom Briscoe - Left the field with a HIA but returned after passing the necessary checks. Ran hard as always and scored a try in the second half fightback. 7

Carlos Tuimavave - Another solid display from the centre. He's been stern since returning to the side, making one key interception and contributing with strong carries. Could have perhaps put Briscoe over in the first half, but all in all, a good account. 7

Liam Sutcliffe - Did enough to score his try off Balmforth's kick. Had some effective carries from shift plays and did his job. Much better. 6

Lewis Martin - The young winger ran hard all game and scrambled well. Never looks out of place at this level. 6

Jake Trueman - The half-back will know he can offer more. However, it's all building blocks after two serious injuries, and it will soon come for him. He still had some moments, and he did his best to get Hull back into it. 6

Ben Reynolds - Similar to Trueman. Some good moments, but some where he can also be better to ensure Hull are more clinical in good ball. 6

Herman Ese’ese - The big prop is always a threat, especially when going close to the line. Ran hard as always. 7

Morgan Smith - Impressive 40/20 early in the game. He had some tidy moments, but he'll also know his distribution can be better. 6

Yusuf Aydin - The prop played the entire first half and soon returned for a second stint. Huge engine and put himself about. 8

Cam Scott - Left the field in the first half with a hamstring injury. Went well before that and is now set for a scan to determine the severity. N/A

Jordan Lane - Was moved around in the first half after injuries but returned to the back row and put on another decent show. He saw plenty of the ball and looked to move it about, too. 6

Ligi Sao - Started at loose-forward but soon moved to the back-row. Ran hard and really put himself about. A couple of errors, which were understandable after leaving the field to injury. 6

Brad Fash - Came on and gave everything as always. Really tidy, whether in contact or, in this case, picking up loose balls. 7

Jack Ashworth - The prop brought plenty of energy to the table. Ran hard and punched some holes. Couple of loose offloads, but it was still a positive account before leaving the field with an ankle knock. 7

Will Gardiner - Arguably his best game at Super League level. Played big minutes due to Hull's knocks but kept going and grew into the contest with strong carries and post-contact metres. Defensively sound as well. 8

Denive Balmforth - Had his moments again. One try with an interception and one assist with a short kick. There's clearly a talented player here. Some things to work on, but he's only 20 and still has loads of time to develop into the all round package. Another encouraging performance. 7
