Nobody in the three-decade history of Hull RUFC can say they have led the team into England’s third tier, until now. Cam Curry can say exactly that. Curry and co-captain Ali Heard beamed with delight when lifting the National 2 North trophy on Saturday after an enthralling 31-29 win over neighbours Ionians at Chants Ave. with Heard sidelined with a knee injury, it was down to Curry to marshal the troops on the pitch and the realisation of what he had achieved began to sink in shortly after final whistle.
“It makes me feel immensely proud,” Curry said.
”To be selected as co-captain of this team is a huge honour.
“We have a lot of good leaders in our squad and we are very much a family team.
“Each player has a strength so to lead this team into National 1 and make history, is just incredible.
“The step up will mean more games like the derby.
“I looked at the players I was playing with and against and I thought to myself, there is nowhere else I’d rather be.
“The sun was shining and it was a very competitive close game.
“Next season is going to be a step up in standard and pace of game but we are willing to take that on.
