Stafford hopes scoring spree continues

Vice-captain Joe Stafford hopes his side’s high scoring attack continues for the rest of the season as the club look to win the Yorkshire Cup.
Victory at Harrogate on Saturday will see Hull advance to the final which will be played at the end of April.
Hull have been breath-taking with ball in hand with over a century of points scored in the two games they played in three days against Wharfedale and Doncaster Phoenix.
Stafford has been impressed with all facets of their game and wants to see that continue for the next three weekends.
“Hopefully we’ll be playing the next three weekends,” Stafford said.
“We were more clinical against Doncaster Phoenix which is what we need to be leading up to Saturday’s semi-final.
“They are struggling in the league above us like Wharfedale but we have scored 102 points in the last two games.
“We need to cut out the little mistakes we make and we’ll do that in training.
“The tight five were really good for us in the way they scrummaged and the back row are a complete set and as usual, our backs were really clinical.
“We’ll see how the 160 minutes of rugby in three days has affected the boys.
“I think we’ll be fine as long as we stay professional and do our jobs right.
“Hopefully good things will happen in the semi-final and we have a final to plan for.
“The Cup will be bonus for us and that would cap off a great year for us.”
