They say a sign of a good team is one that wins when not at their best. Well that was the case for Hull RUFC when beating Blaydon 57-17 at Chants Ave on Saturday. It keeps Hull RUFC top of the table with a nine-point cushion, but it was not all plane sailing, especially in the first half. Two Sam Crane tries helped the home side turn around at the break 17-10 up and after that, it was all Hull. But Crane admits, there is still plenty of room for improvement ahead of another challenging test on Saturday at Fylde.
“It was great to get over the line a couple of times myself,” Crane said.
“I’m always supporting up the middle so I’ve got to give credit to the boys making the breaks and letting me finish it off.
“Teams coming to Chants Ave with nothing to lose are the most dangerous and Blaydon put some nice stuff together.
“So, although we won by 40 points, there’s still some work ons which is something we will definitely address for these big games in the coming weeks.
“We still showed our class running in some great tries so we’re excited for it to all come together in these last three games!”
