Paul Hamber insists with the coaching staff and squad of players assembled for next season, the team won’t come up short when it matters most.
That was the problem for Hull in their last campaign when they were beaten by the top two sides home and away.
Those defeats cost the Chanterlands Avenue side a play-off place and with it any chance of winning promotion back to National Two North.
But Hamber knows they will be better prepared to deal with the big games next season.
“Last season was a learning curve for us,” Hamber said.
“It was a chance to show people what we can do by playing running rugby which we did to brilliant effect.
“Where we fell short however was against the the top teams, but we are a young squad and still are in the process of moulding together.
“But I think that during pre-season and this current off season, we can build to a level, with the help of the coaches, where we won’t fall short at the final hurdle.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of bettering what we achieved last season and hopefully we can ‘put on a show’ every game and show the maturity and development we lacked at times last season.
“I think all the boys want that, as everyone is down at the pit daily grinding away, bettering ourselves.
“It’s not going to be easy, but I believe our mentality and drive towards getting promoted, is second to none.”
