Hull FC broke their losing run with an 18-10 victory over Leeds Rhinos at the MKM Stadium. The Black and Whites were back on their home ground for the first time in seven weeks, with Lewis Martin, Denive Balmforth, and Cam Scott tries enough for victory. Here are the ratings.

Logan Moy - The teenager was excellent under the high ball and defended tough. He was also evasive with the ball in what was another strong showing at this level. 8

Tom Briscoe - Could have done better to deal with Ash Handley's try, but still a solid showing from the winger who carried well. Sin binned late on after a professional foul. 6

Carlos Tuimavave - Grew into the game, and considering he hasn't played in three months, that was a fair and fiery return. 7

Liam Sutcliffe - A couple of errors early on but also some stern carries in a side that gave everything in both attack and defence. His scramble tackle on Brodie Croft in the final ten minutes summed Hull up. Just absolutely desperate to win. 7

Lewis Martin - The young winger was outstanding. He finished well for his try and also carried strong. Defensively, he scrambled hard, with one play on Paul Momirovski standing out. 9

Jake Trueman - Had some moments and certainly got stronger as the game went on. Set up Martin's try and linked well with Ben Reynolds. Kicked a 40/20 in the second half, but could have finished some sets better late in the game. 7

Ben Reynolds - Linked well, took the line on, and provided a vital passing link. He kicked a 40/20 on Hull's first set and his goal kicks were also crucial in Hull building their lead. 7

Herman Ese'ese - Carried strong all game and was dangerous close to the line. He's been solid all season and that continued here. 7

Morgan Smith - Stood up defensively in the first half but his distribution was a little off. 6

Ligi Sao - Played big minutes and looked much more comfortable in the middle of the field. 8

Cam Scott - He was up there with Hull's best against Huddersfield two weeks ago and that continued here. Superb display. Another try to his tally as well. 8

Jordan Lane - One of his best displays of the season. Almost scored in the first half, ran hard, and defended just as strong. 8

Brad Fash - His defence in particular in the first half was immense. He led from the front and was also a threat with the ball. 8

Jack Ashworth - Had a good spell off the bench and put himself about. Folded Harry Newman in half in the second half with a great hit. 7

Yusuf Aydin - Tried his best to drive Hull forward and stepped up in defence. 6

Denive Balmforth - A massive impact off the bench. He was a threat with his running game and his passing was on point. Got Hull on the front foot for their first try and scored the second. Huge impact. 9

Tiaki Chan - Came off the bench and added plenty of fire to Hull's display. 6
