Hull FC maintained their perfect start to the season after a comprehensive 35-4 win over Salford Red Devils at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

After a scrappy opening quarter, Hull took the lead when Jake Connor put Andre Savelio into a gap to score. Marc Sneyd scored the conversion to open up a six-point lead.

Six minutes later, Salford found themselves a man light, as Ryan Lannon was sent to the sin bin for a late hit on Sneyd. Sneyd then dusted himself off, and scored the penalty.

Hull grabbed one more try before the break, with Connor attacking the line again, and putting Josh Reynolds over for the try. Sneyd converted to make it a 14-point lead at the break.

It took the Black and Whites five minutes to strike in the second half, as Reynolds got on the end of a kick in the in-goal to score. Sneyd added the conversion once again to bring Hull up to 20 points.

Four minutes later, a clever kick from Adam Swift bounced kindly for Josh Griffin, who spun his way over. Sneyd scored the conversion once again.

Salford then gave their fans something to cheer, as Ken Sio was found in space out wide and got over, after some good pressure. Tui Lolohea missed the conversion.

With Sneyd and Reynolds off the pitch, Hull turned to Jake Connor to kick for goal when they got a penalty 20m out, and he scored.

Connor then added a drop-goal with less than 10 minutes on the clock.

Hull broke the 30 point barrier as Cameron Scott ran onto a short ball and got over. Connor then added the conversion.

Attention for both sides turns to the Challenge Cup next week. Salford host Widnes Vikings, while Hull travel to Featherstone Rovers.
