Pearce wants players to do themselves justice in home opener

After drawing their opening game of the season, Hull take on Tynedale in their first home fixture of their return to National 2 North.
It’s a chance for Hull supporters to celebrate once again, the promotion won by the players last season.
And director of rugby Gary Pearce has been loyal to the players who got them into the fourth tier of English rugby and hopes they do the club proud against Tynedale.

“Our first home game of the season is a very proud moment for the club,” Pearce said.
“We are very proud to be back in National Two North and these are the players who got us here.
“I want the players to do themselves justice against Tynedale and be seen in the right light.
“Tynedale are a dangerous side with plenty of gas on the edges and they got pipped in their season opener (they lost 36-33 at home to Luctonians) so they will be keen to get off the mark.
“We drew last week and we want to get our first win and to do that we need to take our opportunities.
“The things we worked on in training worked well against Huddersfield but we didn’t strangle them when we had the chance.
“Before Saturday’s game, we would have taken two points against Huddersfield.
“Hopefully our decision making in the final quarter is better against Tynedale and we can stick to our game-plan.
“We need to trust what we are doing and last week was an example of how we cannot slip off for a second, we have to be on the money all the time.
“If we run harder and tackle stronger, we should be okay.”
