Gentle hails new Hull culture
Peter Gentle is expecting 'big things' from Hull FC this season after hailing the culture change in the squad.
The club have brought in vastly-experienced players such as Gareth Ellis, Ben Galea and Daniel Holdsworth.
Gentle says the squad are now setting the goals and he is looking forward to the season ahead.
He told the Hull Daily Mail: "There has been a culture change and it is pretty clear to see the strong culture we have here now.
"It is a culture that is driven by the squad and that's what we've been looking for from the players.
"Last season, we nursed the players, but the quality of personnel and the quality of character we now have means they are setting the goals. This is an ambitious squad and we are expecting big things.
"I am not worried about what anyone else thinks we are capable of or what we are going to do, and we won't be coming out and saying we will win the competition.
"What we do want to do is be the best, though, and we will strive for that."
