Rice reflects on Rossendale defeat

‪Hull’s promotion chances may have been finished in Rossendale, captain Tom Rice insists his side will fight every second that remains of their season.‬
‪Hull remain third in National Three North following their 21-13 loss in Lancashire, but the gap between them and Rossendale is now 12 points.‬
‪With just three games left to play, it’s seems an insurmountable gap, but as long as there is rugby to be played, Rice and his team-mates will give their all in the hope of a major loss of form from Rossendale.‬
‪”We just weren’t good enough against Rossendale,” Rice said. ‬
‪”We still have a lot to learn but this is a young side and we have got a lot to grow. ‬
‪”We will learn from the defeat and move on. ‬
‪”There is still a lot to play for this season and you never know what might happen. ‬
‪”Rugby is an up and down game and Rossendale play the leaders Huddersfield next and if they don’t get anything from that, you never know what might happen.‬
‪”We will keep fighting until the very end. ‬
‪”This team will come good in the coming years.”‬
‪Hull were unable to overcome a 21-3 half-time deficit adding only a Tomasi Tunami try late in the game playing down the slope at Mari Pits Leisure Centre.‬
