Hull RUFC travel to Loughborough this weekend to face the Students looking to extend their lead at the top of the table. Hull moved 12 points clear at the top of National 2 North after beating Bournville 50-22 after beating Tynedale 60-10 the week before. For the second successive week, Hull opted to play into gale force winds in the first half of both games and made light work of the difficult conditions scoring four tries against Tynedale a fortnight ago and three against Bournville on Saturday. Scrum-half Sam Crane explains why they did so well against the elements.
“We have worked incredibly hard the past couple of weeks playing in really tough conditions,” Crane said.
“Our desire and effort has been the difference and it shows, scoring seven tries in the first halves into gale force winds!
“It says a lot about the team and our attitude when it gets tough.
“Our focus now shifts to Loughborough away on Saturday.
“It’s going to be a different challenge on the artificial pitch but one we are all looking forward to!”
