Ball retention the key against Caldy – Pearce

Hull RUFC director of rugby Gary Pearce hopes the work his players have done on ball retention will help them beat Caldy at Chants Ave tomorrow.
Hull go into their clash with Caldy having lost 14-5 at Chester last week when once again, a failure to take chances cost them a chance of victory.
But Pearce remains confident his team can get back to winning ways.

“We know Caldy are a good side,” Pearce said.
“They are favourites to go back up this season and come to Hull after a resounding victory over Luctonians last week.
“We are at home and we know we can play good rugby, and we feel we should have taken more from our trip to Chester.
“We acquitted ourselves very well and we just need to make sure we take chances when they come our way.
“In this division, we are not going to get 10 opportunities to score like we did last season. We might get seven chances and we really need to take at least four of those.
“We have worked hard on ball retention and we have already shown a lot of spirit already this season.
“Simon Humberstone and Loma Kivalu are fit and we have former Hull FC back Jack Logan on the bench for his first game for us.”
