They also had a name check in the 70s sitcom "I Didn't Know You Cared" when they mentioned a game between Widnes and Hull Kingston Rovers. Hull KR have also had a name check in Corrie last year when Blanche Hunt likened another woman to "A Hull Kingston Rovers prop forward" I'm sad I am.

I'm from Hull and believe me the most famous rovers is Melchester - mind you they've seen hard times like the other rovers too dry.gif

I was in a pub once and overheard a conversation about Super League teams full of Aussies, ###### grounds and clubs over 3 million in debt.

And yes, you guessed it, Hull Kingston Rovers got a mention there too.

I would say Hull KR are possibly the most famous Rovers team, even more so than any soccer teams.
But ultimately it's the actual phrase 'It was real 'Roy of The Rovers stuff' that is probably more famouser.

So its possibly Melchester.


What rubbish, featherstone are way more famous, them lot cant even talk reyt

Fev are quite famous, mainly from the Eddie Waring days but overall I would say Hull KR are a name most people of a certain age are aware of, even if they don't know much else.

Waring had been retired for three years when Fev beat Hull at Wembley in one of the biggest upsets for years in 1983. Hull were such hot favourites the bookies had stopped taking bets on them. Waring had been retired for twelve years when Bradford bought Newlove for a then world record transfer fee from Fev.

Waring had been retired for 15 years when Fev last appeared in a CC Semi final. Since then of course we've had dooper league with Fev excluded so their expoits are confined to the past.
