Read Time:1 Minute, 52 Second

Hull FC and Warrington Wolves played out the first Super League draw since July 2018 after 14-14 draw at the KCOM Stadium.

Hull took the lead after 24 minutes, after Marc Sneyd scored a penalty. The penalty was given after a late hit on Joe Cator.

Warrington levelled the game just past the half-hour, after Stefan Ratchford kicked a penalty of his own.

The first try finally came just before the hour, as Jordan Lane broke free and ran 60m to set Jake Connor under the posts. Marc Sneyd hit the conversion to put the Black and Whites ahead by six points.

That lead would only last for five minutes, as Daryl Clark somehow got the ball free for Chris Hill to go over under the posts. Ratchford kicked the conversion to level the scores.

Hull took the lead for the third time in the match with 10 minutes to go, as Lane broke free again. From the resulting field position, they worked the ball to Carlos Tuimavave to score. Sneyd kicked the conversion.

Warrington rescued themselves with seconds to go, as Jake Mamo finished off a brilliant move that saw the Wire keep the ball alive. Widdop converted to force golden point.

Hull were made to rue a missed drop-goal from Sneyd moments earlier.

After Sneyd and Blake Austin missed five drop-goal efforts between them, the game was eventually declared a draw after an extra 10 minutes.

It is the first time a Super League game has ended in a draw since Leeds Rhinos and Wakefield Trinity drew 20-20 in 2018.

Both sides return to league action next week. Hull host Wakefield Trinity on Friday, while Warrington travel to Catalans Dragons the next day.
