Watts believes the scrum can lead Hull to victory against Loughborough Students

It sounds like a broken record, but discipline will be one of the factors that determines whether Hull RUFC beat Loughborough Students at Chants Ave on Saturday.
Scrum-half Rob Watts hopes his side can keep all 15 players on the field of play after seeing two of his colleagues sent to the sin bin in their 27-17 loss at Caldy.
The Students, who won the first meeting by five points earlier in the season, are fifth in National Two North, six places ahead of Hull who are 14 points behind their opponents.
If Hull can keep their discipline in check, Watts feels the scrum can play an important part in winning on Saturday.
“The key to winning this weekend will be our discipline,” Watts said
“If we cut out the silly penalties, we can come away with a win.
“Our pace can give us an edge in this game.
We have come a long way since we last played them.
“I am confident that we can win and climb back up the table.
“A strong scrum will give us a  solid platform for us to play a quick game.
“The game against Caldy shows that we belong in this league and we can compete in the seasons to come.”
