Keane: The Backs Need To Take Our Chances

Keane Naylor was one of four different try scorers last weekend when Hull RUFC beat Sheffield Tigers 29-0, but the winning margin should have been greater. Naylor is the first to admit that he should have scored more than the one try he managed after leaving a couple more scores out on the pitch. Thankfully, it did’t alter the outcome, but Naylor knows they cannot afford to let chances slip through their fingers.

“The forwards dominated in the tight quarters against Sheffield Tigers which is good to see,” Naylor said.
“If we can keep on top in the forwards battle, the backs can get a lot of enjoyment on the back of that, if we can keep our fingers on the ball.
“I was a bit of a butter fingers, but we are creating a lot of opportunities and we are always going to be gutted about not converting them into points.
“But we will work on that and get more success. Luckily it didn’t matter in the end of this game.
“It was important we bounced back from last week’s defeat which was in our fingertips and it was gutting not to get that win at Stourbridge.
“But it shows we can go to the hard teams and put some pressure on them.
“We love playing at home and we’re looking forward to putting some pressure on them.
“It’s a promising start for the boys.”
