Peter Gentle is overjoyed with Hull FC's "great team performance" against Catalans Dragons in the Super League playoffs.

Hull FC coach Peter Gentle has hailed his side's performance against Catalans Dragons in the Super League playoffs on Friday.

Gentle's team got the better of their opponents 14-4 under rainy condition at the KC Stadium to progress to the preliminary semi-finals of the competition.

"We learned a lesson about a month ago about playing in these conditions," BBC Sport quotes him as saying after the match.

"I can't doubt the courage and character of the group. There were players entitled not to be out there tonight.

"We are down on troops and there was a lot of courageous effort out there. It was a great team performance but I thought our senior players were terrific."

Jamie Shaul and Gareth Ellis scored the tries for Hull.
