The obvious unbiased, unblinkered answer is Hull v KR.

Purely, as an Australian who attended all the "derby" games a couple of seasons ago stated that none compared with the rivalry and atmosphere of the Hull derby.

The Saints Wigan game is easily the best for Neutrals as it's the better game, thus more intense.

The rivalry is tame compared to Rovers - Hull though.

Leigh V Wigan (a near same accent derby, unlike Stains V Wigan) cannot be matched for passion and hatred (at least from the Leythers tongue.gif )

We actually had the upper hand in these for quite a few years until 1985

Swinton V Salford used to be a decent derby

What about Worky V Haven

Skolars V Quims wink.gif

Pie's v's Skints, by far the biggest and best.



Based on what criteria? The KC regularly hosts derbies with 20,000+ there and the East Hull version is played in a smaller stadium that is not Hull fan friendly. As I said earlier the DWS only had just over 20,000 for a near top of the table clash. If Hull and Rovers were both top four (with one of them at the top) then you'd see which is the biggest derby.

hunslet -leeds in the 50s they used to get 20k for the pre season lazenby cup match.



In 1938 they attracted a then record crowd of 54k for a RL Championship Final to Elland Road. The game was moved there from Wakey and they used the Parkside posts. Must count as the biggest derby game ever.

I used to really look forward to the Bradford - Halifax match. A much better derby than Bradford - that team to the east.


I used to know a 'Fax fan quite well, (this is in the eighties) and he regarded the Bradford game as the most important of their season.
I suppose 'Fax have more derby possibilities than most given the proximity of Bradford, Rochdale, Oldham, Huddersfield and Keighley.
Presumably in the old days when 'Fax and Fartown took it in turns to play in the Lancashire League, the Oldham and Rochdale fixtures were their derbies.

I think we are going to have to agree to disagree. To everybody in Hull the Fc v Kr match is the biggest and nothing will ever change that.
We hate each other, cannot abide anything that Rovers stand for and represent. I will admit not being able to enjoy the Derbies as they just mean to much, your whole life gets affected by the result, and before people say hate is a bad word to use, some of my best mates are KR fans.

I think you'll find the Challenge Cup Final - Hull v Hull KR was the biggest derby crowd!

Stop trying to get some reflected glory 1976. Tell us about the massive Warrington v Widnes attendances.

The difference being of course that the Leeds - Hunslet Championship final actually took place within the city of Leeds - which for me defines a real derby.

Wrong as already explained.

I think it was the Guardian that listed Wigan v Saints in its top ten list of British sporting contests that were a must see.

Wigan v Saints holds the record for the bigggest league competition gate at 47,747, the biggest CC Final at Wembley gate 98,536.*

I don't see how hatred makes a game a big derby, that is so soccer and oh so pathetic.

*For a Derby.
