Hardman keen to use county glory to help club succeed

Dom Hardman intends to use his experience helping Yorkshire under-20s win the national title next season to help Hull win promotion back to National Two North.
The 19-year-old prop was grateful for the experience to represent his county and help them beat Durham 14-7 to win the Jason Leonard County Championship at Twickenham in front of proud parents Christine and Peter and brother Jonny.
Playing at the home of rugby will make the Sports Coaching and Performance student stronger as he continues his rugby development and feels it will help him handle high pressure situations.
“The experience will help me in the future as it will be another stepping stone,” Hardman said.
“It will certainly help me in more high pressure games.
“We have cross codes coming up for Hull University which is a massive game and I can use that experience then.
“I am already looking forward to next season with Hull and what that can bring.
“The development over the summer is exciting and will stand the whole team in good stead.
“Playing for Yorkshire was a very surreal experience walking out onto the pitch when you know so many great people have done it before,.
“But I had to make it feel like it was just another game and I enjoyed the whole experience from the start.
“One of the highlights would be how the process brought 25 rugby players together and them mates.
“To win any title is always a pleasure but as I have been working towards this for over a year, having been ruled out last year through injury, meant that it meant a lot more to me.”
