MJ expects a more open game against Luctonians than the first meeting

Anyone who experienced the first meeting of the season between Hull RUFC and Luctonians will have hopefully dried out by now.
And that includes the wingers who may not have got their cold hands on the ball much during the 80 minutes.
The 3-3 draw was played in rainy and windy condition at Chants Ave which made it battle of attrition between the two packs of forwards.
One of those forwards was Hull hooker Mike Jobling who described the match as one of the more peculiar games he has played in.
The 3-3 draw was one of the most peculiar games I have played in,” Jobling said.
“Nobody really got on the front foot and the game was played in the middle of the field.
“We have improved since then and have strength in depth.
“But we can’t forget that so have Luctonians.
“They have produced some pivotal wins so this match will be key for both sides. 

Going to Luctonians is a hard ask for any team as it is tucked away in the depths of Hereford.
“They get great support and the ground is very open so weather is always going to play it’s part there.
“I think the key will be to dominate the set piece.
“If we take precedence and gain front foot ball, I have every belief that we will come away with the win. 
“A win will definitely give us the edge in terms of league position, but it is so tight from sixth to 14th in the league, a win either way can see you fluctuate.”
