Pearce praises players for clinical display

Gary Pearce praised his players for putting on a top class display to beat Sandal 48-14 to effectively tie up third place in National Three North.
Sandal started the day fourth and could have leapfrogged Hull with a bonus-point win, but they were put in their place by a rampant home side.
Sandal led briefly 7-5 but their weaknesses were exploited in devastating fashion by Pearce’s side who were looking to bounce back from their promotion ending defeat at Rossendale a week earlier.
“It showed the character we have within this team,” Pearce said.
“The players were disappointed with themselves after last week defeat at Rossendale because they know it was an opportunity missed.
“We asked them to be more patient against Sandal and play more as a team and it worked on a flat pitch rather than an uphill pitch.
“We played some good stuff.
“To think they could have gone above us I think we could have scored 70 or 80 points.
“That’s the difference between us and he rest of the league.
“We are a good side and it frustrates me when we don’t show it.
“When they don’t show it we get mad with them.
“When we’re on song we are a very balanced side.
“The game was over by half time and the question was how many points we’d score.”
