I know that when Fax were in SL/Division 1 their fans regarded Bradford as their derby match. Whether the Bradford fans did I couldn't say. Obviously Fev/Cas is a very intense game but we don't play them often enough. I think Cas regard Leeds as their "derby"

cas/wakey is the derby nowadays

Quite right Padge - Hull v Hull KR is the biggest rivalry, not necessarily a Derby ;)

It's probably the oldest rivalry as well :)

The Hull one is probably the biggest rivalry, whilst the Wigan v Saints is the most famous.and possibly the biggest in the national psyche.

Carry on Hull.

Michael Dobson played by Kenneth Williams, Lee Radford by Bernard Breslaw and introducing Sid James as Paul 'likes it both ways' Cooke.

And Hattie Jacques as Kath Hetherington, obviously.

Peter Gentle played by Peter Butterworth and Craig Sandercock played by Charles Hawtrey. How about a slimy actor to play Neil Hudgell. I know, Leslie Phillips. Ding dong.

It's a pity Gerald Thomas, the Hull lad who directed the Carry On films, is no longer with us.

I'm sure he'd be up for it.
