Brett Kenny  and Peter Sterling  - exceptional talents.

 

But  on those team sheets were two of our own kids on the block - Shaun Edwards and   Gary Schofield . Both World class players in their own right and  in this

 

World Cup year a dream introduction team. The thread is great , but for me , they'd be my two PR guests for this one............

Or better still , if the Beeb budget stretched to it , all 4 ?

 

What a way to set up this Final , and at the same time the  World Cup itself ?  With someone like Jonothan Davies presenting , a potentially iconic exchange of views that could not be ignored .......

Peter Sterling's comments about the prospect of Hull FC v Wigan in this year's RL Cup Final and the memories of the 1985 classic final....

 

http://www.thisishul...l#axzz2afPayCSK

 

And he hasn't yet ruled out flying over to cheer on Hull FC...

 

"I have to say I haven't had chance to look at my commitments to see whether I will be able to get over for the final, but I would love to be there and if there is any way of making it possible I will be"

 

(Maybe it's just a hint that he'd like somebody to pay his air fare... :biggrin: )

Kemble is the best full back I've seen play for Hull.

 

His poor performance in the 1985 final was as a result of an appalling head high assault off the ball by Ian Orum that knocked him out in the semi final v Cas IIRC. He never really recovered after that incident IMO.

This is a great idea, and the BBC have duly taken note of it, and booked "Bumbling" Ray French as the sole commentator
