Full Report

Match Official: C Kendall

Hull FC ended their regular-season Betfred Super League campaign with a hard-fought 14-10 win over Huddersfield Giants at the KCOM Stadium.

Mark Minichiello opened the scoring in the 14th minute, using every inch of his frame to stretch the ball over the Giants line following a sustained period of pressure.

Marc Sneyd added the extras before Gareth Ellis marked his return from injury to set up Hull's second try, scored by Josh Bowden.

Sneyd again converted to extend the home side's advantage but Huddersfield got themselves back in the game when Darnell McIntosh crossed the whitewash, with Danny Brough landing the touchline conversion.

Jermaine McGillvary touched down shortly afterwards but Brough was off-target with the conversion.

With just five minutes remaining, Sneyd kicked his third goal of the evening and Hull held on to claim the points.

"It wasn't pretty but it was really intense," admitted Hull coach Lee Radford afterwards. "We've achieved our goal of making the top four after 23 rounds."

Huddersfield coach Rick Stone said: "The effort was okay and we had courage. But we made too many errors and completed at 63 per cent overall.

"We looked tired and it showed in our execution. As poor as we were in execution, we have to give credit to Hull."
