Kelly treble moves in-form Hull up to third

Albert Kelly scored a second-half hat-trick as Hull FC moved up to third in the Super League table by rallying to beat Castleford Tigers 31-18.

In-form Hull trailed 14-4 at The Jungle on Thursday following tries from Greg Minikin and Junior Moors, as well as six points from the boot of Peter Mata'utia.

Hull came storming back after the break, though, Ratu Naulago scoring his second try of the night and Kelly crossing six minutes later.

Greg Eden's try brought the Tigers level midway through the second half, but Kelly helped himself to a treble and Marc Sneyd landed a late drop-goal to take his tally to 11 points as Hull claimed a third successive win.
