Simon Humberstone believes last weekend’s victory st home to Chester has eased some of the gloom after losing the first two games of 2020.
After successive defeats to Stourbridge and Hinckley, Hull RUFC bounced back to beat Chester 27-16 last Saturday despite trailing 11-6 at half-time.
The former Cardiff and Doncaster fly-half admits six wins from the last eight is a very good achievement for the recently-promoted side.
“Every game in this league is tough, especially for us as we’ve come up into this year,” Humberstone said.
“There have been a few games where we feel we’ve deserved a bit more, but you don’t always get what you deserve.
“We were glad to get over the line on Saturday and get back to winning ways and get the first win of 2020.
“We had a block of four games where we played Fylde through to Wharfedale which we targeted wins and we got four from four.
“And we had another block of four from Tynedale through to Chester and we won two of those four games.
“While we might be a little bit disappointed by the previous two results (before Chester), when you look at the block of four as a whole, we can’t be too disappointed.
“We probably have a free shot this weekend against Caldy and then we have a really big month of February to try and keep ourselves in this league.
“There are opportunities to win games especially with three at home.
“We want to win our home games and three home games gives us a great opportunity to do that.”
