Official Match Report
Hull FC laid down an early marker in First Utility Super League XXI with a comfortable 42-20 victory over Salford Red Devils at the KC Stadium.
Lee Radford's squad looked in good shape heading into the round one fixture and his new recruits did not disappoint in a dominant Hull performance.
Leon Pryce and Josh Griffin traded early tries but the Airlie Birds never looked back after Mahe Fonua marked his debut with a try.
Fellow new boy Carlos Tuimavave rounded off the first-half scoring after Jordan Thompson and Fetuli Talanoa had given the Black and Whites breathing space.
A bad night for the Red Devils got worse as Josh Bowden, Jack Logan and Jamie Shaul all crossed early in the second period. Junior Sa'u scored either side of Niall Evalds' effort to give the travelling Salford fans some cheer but Ian Watson's side were second best by a distance.
