Jack: We Need To Improve The One Percent Plays

Saturday’s 36-28 loss to Taunton was another game that got away from Hull RUFC. While never leading in the game, they kept fighting until the final whistle to secure a bonus point for scoring four tries. But a second bonus point evaded them as they lost by eight points. Jack Edwards scored his first try for the club in the second half, and also provided an assist in the defeat. The winger knows that elusive first win is not that far away and could be achieved if the one percent plays were improved. Those are the small plays that when added up, make a big difference in the outcome of the game.

“It was a very close game in the end,” Said Edwards.
“I’d say the better team lost on Saturday. For the majority of the game, we were on top.
“We gave them 14 points and at this level, it’s the little margins that cost you.
“If we don’t score points in the red zone like teams are doing when they play us, the results will continue the way they are.
“It’s the one percent plays that we need to work on.
“Darlington MP, Leeds and Taunton are three games that ended in losses that could easily have been wins. 
“The positive is that we showed we can play good rugby at this level.
“Hopefully our luck turns sooner rather than later, hopefully this weekend. 
“We’ll look at where Sale are exploitable and where we can hopefully score a few points.”
