A depleted Hull FC outfit were on a hiding to nothing at St Helens, who were 1/100 favourites going into the clash, and showed how ruthless they can be with a 58-0 victory. Here are the ratings from a tough night on Merseyside.

Logan Moy - The teenager, on his first senior start for the club, stood up under the high ball despite the traffic that came at him. A brave account. One or two errors, but also one or two glimpses on the ball. He never gave up. 5

Darnell McIntosh - Got involved in Hull's exit sets, looking to move the ball and get some energy into the side. A thankless task at times, but kept going. 5

Davy Litten - Back in a Super League side for the first time in two months. He had a tough night defending on the edge but kept putting his hand up. 4

Liam Sutcliffe - A really tough night for Hull's centres. Up against it, with St Helens having way more possession and territory. 4

Lewis Martin - Some brave carries from the winger. He never backed down, despite Konrad Hurrell gunning for him on the edge. 5

Jack Charles - Limited chances to throw some shape at Saints, but fronted up in defence. Another gutsy showing from the teenager. 5

Morgan Smith - Effort is never in question. He tried to take control in a well-beaten side. 4

Herman Ese'ese - Carried well and promoted the ball despite the dominance of St Helens. He added some quality to his stints on what was always going to be a tough night. 6

Danny Houghton - Huge defensive effort from the hooker. Looked to get Hull moving in limited ball. 5

Franklin Pele - Hull were up against it, but the prop still hardly saw the ball. They needed to find ways to use him better, as per the Huddersfield game last time out. 3

Jordan Lane - Ran some great lines and made a couple of breaks on the left edge. He also got through his workload in defence. 6

Cam Scott - The quieter of the two back rowers. Struggled to get involved. 4

Joe Cator - Tackled his heart out in the middle of the field. 5

Denive Balmforth - Came on and added a spark, jumping out from the play the ball. 5

Will Gardiner - Brought on in the first half and dug in alongside his young teammates. One of his biggest stints in Super League to date. 5

Zach Jebson - The teenager brought some energy to the side and never backed down on just his second senior appearance. 5

Matty Laidlaw - The young prop put himself about as he always does. He has plenty of heart and tenacity about him. 5
