1st Team, Home

Mike satisfied with start, but insists there is room for improvement

Seven points from Hull’s first two games back in National 2 North is a satisfying start to the new season according to prop Mike Dias.
A 22-22 draw at Huddersfield was followed by last weekend’s 36-29 home win over Tynedale at Chants Ave and Dias knows there is more to come from the players.
Next up for Hull is a trip to the early season pace-setter Stourbridge who have started the season with two wins from two.
But Dias believes playing Stourbridge will bring the best out of the team.

“Overall we are satisfied with our start as a team,” Dias said.
“We were disappointed with the result against Huddersfield after conceding in the last play.
“I think that speaks volumes about the team and where we want to be this year.
“We prepared well for Tyndale and knew how we wanted to play.
“So after a shaky start, the big positive was we still trusted our processes and the result came in the end in a hard fought game.
“We are 100 per cent growing as a team and looking forward to another challenge this weekend against the league leaders.
“I think every week brings a different test and it’s exciting.
“The boys are all eager and now the rustiness is out we want to push on.
“We looked into Stourbridge early on the week but the majority will be worrying about ourselves as we have quality all over the pitch to threaten teams this season.”
