Hull FC denied win by last minute Wolves try - FT 20-20
HULL FC were denied an impressive opening day win over Warrington Wolves as the visitors crossed for a last minute try to level the scores at 20-20.
The Black and Whites had looked like starting with a win at the KC Stadium, only for a late try from Rhys Evans to earn a point for the Wolves.
Hull had gone toe-to-toe with the Wolves, many pundits' favourites to be Grand Final winners, with tries from Kirk Yeaman, Tom Briscoe and two from Danny Tickle (2) putting their noses in front 20-16 in the latter stages.
The Wolves scored through Trent Waterhouse, Rhys Williams and Simon Grix before Evans crossed in the dying stages.

Coach Peter Gentle said: "I thought we did enough to get the win. Our attack was putting too much pressure on our defence though by turning the ball over too early in the tackle count. Many of our errors were unforced which was disappointing. We gave them soft tries off the back of errors and penalties.
"I think we improved from last week though and I think we still have a lot of improvement in us as the season progresses."
Hull had started the game without half-back Brett Seymour and prop Eamon O'Carroll through injury.
Gentle confirmed Seymour had injured his knee against Bradford, and had an operation yesterday morning. He will miss next week against Catalan but it is hoped he will be fit to face London the following week.
O'Carroll suffered a back injury in training last week and missed the game with ligament damage, although he has not been ruled out of next weekend's trip to face Catalan.
