Joint leading try scorer Stephen Hihetah accepts his side weren’t at their best in their 10-10 draw against Preston Grasshoppers.
Hihetah gave Hull a dream start with a try in the first minute – his second in two games – but the team struggled to capitalise on that with one other try scored in the remaining 79 minutes.
Collectively, it wasn’t a great performance by Hull. And individually, few came off the pitch with their heads held high in a game they could have won in the closing stages.
Hull return to action this Saturday at Harrogate and Hihetah wants each player to take more responsibility for their role in the team.
“Individually, we still have a lot of work to do,” Hihetah said.
“And we’ve got to do it quick if want to achieve promotion.
“With this week going to Harrogate, it is a must win game for us.
“We will have to train and work hard on our mistakes if we are to come away with the win.
“The performance and result last weekend wasn’t really what we wanted.
“The only good thing was our defending for 30 minutes and not conceding a try when they were close to our line for so long.
