Looking like we might record one of the shocks of the season here, against that unstoppable Rovers side.

EDIT: We've done it! Torn up the formbook.

:biggrin:
Good result.

Take a deep breath.

The Pride of East Hull still feels glad to support the team and can take defeat in battle believing we will win the war one day.


Just Bronwyn conjures up "unstoppable" from his lexicon, if ever we were I hope we would show respect to our vanquished enemy.
Remember the good times for they will soon be gone.

Were The KC Cuckoos to win next week you might just regret your unkind words.

Two weeks to prepare for the next warm up game v Wigan then it's the big one!

It's now 34-6 so, obviously, not much.

I'm under no illusion about the fact Hull will make it a tough game next week and suspect it will be won by either side in the last 10 minutes or so.

Perhaps I was a little too facetious but the 'in-form team in the league' comment deserved a ribbing. Hull KR have done well this season though.

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.

I'm a little concerned about next week given that Warrington's reserves have strolled past such formidable opponents today.

OK I own up. I was fibbing about being a little concerned.

Ben Currie is looking like the best teenage forward to emerge since Andy Farrell and Paul Sculthorpe, he seems to improve with every game,
Smith took a gamble today but the youngsters who came in gave us lots of energy in the 2nd half. Also he states Atkins won't be back until the last two weeks of the regular season.

Just Browny, I give respect for your amended tone. We might even be friends after next weeks game!

 

OF..lets call it our Challenge Cup Final as we have a record of beating Hull in these games, home, away and at W......

 

Ullman...if you class todays Warrington line up as Reserves heaven help you all next weekend....but I can see you respect the Robins as formidable opponents so a big thankyou.

 

You should be grateful we have even built a new stand for you to feel at home in for the Derby.

Why I dont know as I always enjoyed watching your paltry away following getting a good soaking. Lets see how many cross the River when the stand is open for business.

I went to see The Who at the KC, bought the 'Live at Hull' album, have still got the original single release of 'In the City' and have a picture of Bradley Wiggins winning the TdF hanging up in our back room.

 

He's got no chance.

Witnesses reported somebody fitting that description leaving the scene in a vehicle displaying the BBC Radio Humberside logo.
