Be more patient says Pearce

With a third of the season gone, Hull director of rugby Gary Pearce has urged his players to show more patience over the final two thirds if they are to fulfil their goals.
Hull currently sit fourth in the Northern Premier League having left numerous points behind them in the early stages of the campaign.
They have nine points to make up on leaders Lymm but with 17 fixtures remaining, there is plenty of time and rugby to play.
But the one thing Pearce wants his side to learn more than anything is to be more patient.
“There have been times this season, especially in the first 20 minutes, we haven’t been patient enough,” Pearce said.
“We have made so many errors that has left us with a lot of unnecessary defending to do.
“So far, I’m quite pleased with the start we have made, but I’m disappointed with the two defeats we have.
“We have been our own downfall through a lack of concentration and we cannot afford that to happen.
“Our attitude away from home has been really good as we don’t have a fear of losing and we have to translate that to our home games.
“I thought we would be in the top four at this stage.
“We are developing good young local players and we are definitely better than we were a year ago.
“The next few weeks will see us play the other teams in the league and we can see where we are then.
“Against Ilkley we will have to respect them as their recent games shows they are a good side.
“They showed by running Preston close, they have something about them.”
