Harvey describes Lymm win as an accomplished team performance

On the last day of September, Lymm went to Hull and won 28-19.
It may only have been the fifth fixture of the season, but there was a sense that it was a big win with greater significance for later in the season as both clubs strived for promotion.
Ever since that defeat, Hull’s players had the return fixture circled in red as an opportunity for redemption knowing they let themselves down at Chants Ave.
At Crouchley Lane on Saturday, revenge was sweet.
Scrum-half Harvey Harding admits the team had a point to prove if they were to keep their promotion hopes alive.
“The win today was very satisfying,” Harding said.
“We went to make a statement after losing to them at home earlier in the season and we did exactly that.
“We knew how we wanted to play and executed what we had practiced.
“I feel it was an accomplished team effort.
“The forwards fronted up really well our scrum never looked like going backwards and they carried hard in open play making plenty of yards.
“The backs turned up in defence and were solid all day.
“The win today brings us another step closer to our goal of promotion.
“And we will take today’s efforts into next week and continue to build on it.”
