Champions St Helens ended a two-game Super League losing run with a hard-earned victory over a dogged Hull FC in a ferociously physical encounter.

Ben Davies opened the scoring before half-time for Saints after a bruising first half, but Scott Taylor powered over in reply for Hull after the break.

Jon Bennison and Jack Welsby then went over for Saints, before Jake Clifford punished a spill to score for Hull.

Bennison finished bravely in the corner to leave Hull rueing missed chances.
