Depends how firm the pitch is, if it's a fast track or if it'll take spin.

The only way Hull KR would stand a chance in this game is if Sam Tomkins was unable to play.

They've done that before, the shirts turn up, the bodies turn up, their brains stay on the coach.

Hodgson aiming to set Cup record straight

David Hodgson already has a Tetley’s Challenge Cup winners medal and has played in a final at Wembley but the Hull Kingston Rovers winger has not managed both at the same time – a situation he is looking to remedy in 2013.
Rovers host Wigan Warriors at Craven Park on Sunday (3.00) in an enticing fifth round tie and Hodgson will be aiming to dash his former club’s ambitions in the competition in front of some of Rugby League’s most passionate fans.
In 2002, Hodgson came off the bench for Wigan in their victory over St Helens at Murrayfield and he went on to play at Wembley for Huddersfield in their 2009 defeat to Warrington.
So the 31-year-old has some serious Challenge Cup history: “The win at Murrayfield was a great experience but everyone wants to play at Wembley and win a Challenge Cup,” he said. “I played at Wembley for Huddersfield and although we lost, playing there was massive.
 “The Challenge Cup goes back a long way. I used to watch it as a kid with all those great teams playing at Wembley and lifting the Challenge Cup trophy. It’s a massive thing for players, especially when you get that little bit further in the competition, you settle in a bit and realise how special it could be.”
Although Hodgson knows it will be a tough contest this weekend, given the calibre of the opposition, he is aware that there are no certainties in the Challenge Cup.
“Wigan are sitting at the top of Super League and they’re there for a reason,” he said. “But the Challenge Cup is about whoever turns up on the day. If we play well who’s to say we can’t turn them over.”
Hull KR’s victory over St Helens in the previous round has given Rovers a huge boost. “Beating St Helens is always good,” he added. “They’re a tough team and although they had a few injuries at the time, the young lads they bring in are quality players and can do a job, so to beat them was massive, especially in the Challenge Cup because they always seem to go well.”
For the Hull-born winger, playing for his home-town club is special and given that Rovers haven’t made the final since 1986, a good Cup run would be a great boost for the club and their fanatical fans.
Playing at Craven Park should give them an edge. “We seem to play well at home,” he said. “Teams may find it a bit intimidating coming to our place. It’s a great atmosphere because the fans get behind the team and it gives us that extra little spark
 “I think the fans would enjoy a decent cup run. The Challenge Cup becomes even more special the further you get. Once you get to the semi-finals and a neutral ground it really sinks in.
“It would be good to have a run but we’ve got a tough task against Wigan before we look any further. If we get through that, who knows how far we can go?”

Hull KR 24 - 36 Liam Farrell

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.

That would still be good enough to beat us!

Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

Unfortunately, as Hull FC fans, we aren't in much of a position to do any lecturing on that front right now.
