New Recruits Ready For The Start Of Our Historic Adventure

Hull start an exciting but challenging chapter this Saturday when they play their first ever game in National Division 1 of England’s rugby union structure. A trip to Bishop’s Stortford awaits after a busy summer with several new players arriving to bolster the club’s playing resources.

Joe Carlise has Premiership experience with Worcester and Wasps as an off half which will be invaluable at this level. Jack Edwards has played for English Students and can play either wing or full back.

Josh Hanlon is a hooker who played for Ireland under 20’s in that age group’s World Cup. Alex Todd, a back row player has come back to the area to play for Hull having turned out for one of the UK’s top University sides whilst studying at Exeter.

Head coach Gary Pearce is still looking to add a couple more players to his squad, but believes he has a competitive team for Hull’s first game in National 1.

Hull will have all last year’s front and second rowers available, and whilst some of last year’s back row are sidelined through injury, there is enough strength in the group to ensure a good pack will take the field on Saturday.

The backs selection will be tough as former captain and centre Alex Heard is now fit which means there are several options to be considered for the  two centre positions .

Last years wingers Mike Adlard and Keane Naylor are fit and available as is new comer Jack Edwards which gives added depth wide out.

 Reece Dean looks likely to start at full back this week which should mean that Hull have a back division that could well make an impression in what will be a tough first game away from home .

Saturday will be a good test for Hull and the side has been well prepared for this new challenge and hopes are high for.a good performance.and result.
