Returning hero Scott Hill praised Harlequins Rugby League's youngsters as they got back to winning ways against Hull FC, writes James Harding.

Hill missed the last two games through a hamstring injury - coinciding with a three-game losing streak.

The Aussie played a key role in Sunday's second-half comeback, but insisted its the club' s young guns who should take the credit.

He said: "Joe Mbu's been outstanding this last month, probably our best pla yer. "So it's all credit to him and fellas like Michael Worrincy, w ho have just started to understand the level they'v e got to play at and are doing it."

With the likes of Mbu, Worrincy, Tony Clubb and Chris Melling at the club, Hill is one of the experienced heads they players look up to.

"That's what I've enjoyed from being over here," the 30-year-old added.

"I've been lucky enough to play under some really good coaches and learnt plenty from them, so I'll continue to pass on their advice."

Hill, who said he played with only 70 per cent feeling in his left arm, lit up the second half with his direct running and intelligent passing.

Having trailed 16-0 with a minute of the first-half remaining, rising star Clubb scored a try which Henry Paul converted to leave Quins 10 points adrift at the break.

Second-half tries from Julien Rinaldi, Worrincy, Melling (two) and a second for Clubb gave the home side a 34-26 win.

The victory sees Quins climb up to seventh in the Super League ahead of Sunday's game at Hull's city rivals, Hull Kingston Rovers.

Hill added: "Every week's important now, especially as we had lost our previous three games.

"We can't afford to drop too many more, otherwise we'll struggle to make the play-offs."

Meanwhile, another of Quins' young-guns, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, has undergone surgery to remove the pins inserted into his wrist after he broke it in March.

It was initially feared he would be out for four months, but removing the pins means he can take part in ball-work sessions and may be back sooner.

Quins head physio Todd Williams said: "It is still difficult to put a time frame on how long it will be until Louie can start playing again, but if he continues healing the way he has so far it may be as soon four weeks.

"Now he's had the operation he'll be able to get more in training. He'll start with joining in some skills sessions and gradually work into contact."
