Hull FC enjoy afternoon stroll against timid Toulouse

Hull FC snapped their recent losing streak in fine fashion winning 38-12 against Toulouse Olympique on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts were quick out of the blocks with Harvey Barron on the end of two terrific passes from fullback Jake Connor to make it 12-0.

After a torrid run, Hull FC enjoyed themselves with Will Gardiner striding through a massive gap for the third try before Mitieli Vulikijapani swatted away the defence to give us the 24-0 half-time score.

Toulouse were only playing for pride after their relegation was confirmed in their derby loss to Catalans Dragons but they did pull back a four-pointer through Guy Armitage.

It was the Connor show for Hull FC. He put in a deft kick for Barron who found Ellis Longstaff on the inside to bring the lead back to 22 points.

Hull FC scored in bunches and quickly Jordan Lane added the black-and-white's fifth four-pointer of the game when he steamed on a short ball and went over untouched.

Winger Ilias Bergal showed off his pace when he sped away down the right touchline to get Toulouse Olympique into double figure on another forgettable afternoon.

The last word went to Hull FC. Mitieli Vulikijapani completed his double from a Toulouse error was scooped up and thrown inside to the pacy back.
