Price knew Wharfedale’s interval lead was to enough

Tyler Price knew when he got the nod to come off the bench, he would have a big part to play.
In the build-up to the game, Price said his knowledge of the pitch could prove important.
Trailing 24-8, the odds were stacked against Hull as Wharfedale had one foot in the Yorkshire Cup semi-finals.
The National Two North side arrived at Bishop Burton expecting to progress without much of a fuss.
But the student, who is used to playing on the pitch, used his experience to kick Wharfedale to death in the 40 minutes he was involved.
Not only did his kicking game pin the visitors back deep in their own territory, he also added three penalties in a 50-29 win.
“I knew we would be able to turn things around in the second half,” Price said.
“It’s always hard playing up the hill as we did in the first half.
“It’s easily a 20 point slope.
“In the second half our forwards were a lot more direct and carried with a lot more conviction.
“That gave us backs a lot more space to exploit.
“We just kicked the corners and used the wind to pen them in their own half and then took advantage of that.”
