Hull RUFC came off the pitch at Chants Ave on Saturday scratching their heads wondering how they didn’t beat Sedgley Park.
The visitors claimed the win 27-24 knowing they could and should have won after missing two conversion attempts and seeing two tries disallowed.
But Pearce hopes his side can learn the lessons from the defeat and sooner or later they will reap the rewards their play deserves.
“I’m massively disappointed to lose that game,” Pearce said.
“With the chances we had and the two tries we had disallowed, we should have won.
“We missed two kicks at goal and to be fair to their kicker, he kicked very well.
“That was a good quality game against a good side.
“We had an error that gifted them a good lead so to come back from that shows we have good spirit.
“We looked at each other after the game wondering how we lost that game.
“We played for 80 minutes and they will be a top three or four side this year and we matched them all the way and if I’m honest I think we were the better team.
“We came away with two points but we should have had five.
“That’s the disappointing part. We have to take lessons from this.
“It has taken us a little bit of time to learn lessons at this level and there are very good players playing in the league and when we make errors they immediately get punished.
“When the opposition makes an errors we are not getting the reward. We have to stick at it and the tide will turn.”
