Unless Hudgell was about to jump ship, I'll be staggered if he sold his golden boy to Hull. And even if he was about to make way for somebody else, he's still a staunch Hull KR fan so it's highly unlikely IMO.

I had a text saying similar lastnight until I see a new scrumhalf running out in a black and white shirt I won't listen to another rumour or piece of paper speculation again.

Hull as a city can sustain two SL clubs, yeah right.

It doesn't matter does it.

The fact is Hull sustained a Hull club at the top of the league and also sustained a Calder X111 at the top at the same time.

The town went on to sustain two championship clubs in Hull as well.

It must be some sort of record?

to go where?

What are you on about?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

http://en.wikipedia....League_season


Hull's best season ever probably and Rovers won back to back titles the following 2 seasons making it 3 titles in 6 years for Rovers and 4 in 6 years from the city of Hull.

Heady days for RL in the city and Hull RLFC (as they were known at the time) played a significant part.

The period of course also featured the city's only Wembley win with Rovers taking the spoils and with a side packed with local players.

Can those days return?

Back then teams like Nottingham Forest & Aston Villa were champions of Europe. Much has changed.

But in the very small world of English Rugby League there is just one city alone where Rugby League permeates into the very fabric of it's being. Where Monday morning conversations in offices and factories are all about Rugby League. The city of Kingston Upon Hull.

The heady days of the 80's may not be coming back this year or soon but Kingston Upon Hull remains the biggest RL stronghold outside of Sydney & Brisbane.

Let's celebrate that there is at least one city in England where RL is so popular it can support 2 teams.

the record was probably for the number of clubs going belly up later.

I'd love to get a pair of these Hull spectacles through which Dobson is clearly seen as some sort of rugby god.

He and Holdsworth would represent a very mechanical, well-disciplined halfback partnership, but don't come looking for excitement.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

For whatever reason HKR's business plan isn't working, but given the size of their attendances I would say the city certainly can support two SL clubs.

On that basis we might as well cull Castleford, Widnes, Salford, Broncos, Huddersfield and probably Wakefield. Nonsense.
