That'll go down well on the Hull FC RLFans forum.


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 don't think the loss of Dobson will be as big of a blow as many seem to think.

I'm very confident that Kris Keating will prove to as influential -if not more so- than Michael Dobson. I think he is a better player than Michael Dobson and hope that will prove to be a fair and correct assessment come September/October time.

Rally Round...

Leeds and St Helens by a country mile the competition's 2 best teams. If they don't meet in the GF I'll be very, very surprised. Luke Walsh should win Man of Steel.

 

Not much between Warrington, Wigan, Huddersfield and Salford (when they start to gel).

 

Those are the only 6 decent sides in the comp.

 

Hull FC probably next best for 7th (as ever).

 

The rest - who cares? Barely a decent player between them.

 

Lots and lots and lots of blowout scores when the good 6 teams meet the rest.

 

A dull procession of a competition.

 

Crowds to wane. Media interest to wane. Younger generations of fans to look elsewhere.

 

Still, NRL is on Premier Sports so it's not all bad.

I genuinely don't see this all-star Saints line up. They've definitely beefed up their pack, and in Walsh should give them a kicking game.

 

But their three-quarter line is extremely average and they'll still be weighed down by the need to keep picking Hohaia and Wellens.

I presume you wrote that whilst sitting on the edge of the Humber Bridge contemplating when to jump?

 

Leeds and Saints the best two teams in the comp? 

 

Do us a favour, and stop contemplating. Just do it.

Cant see saints challenging wigan beat them with 12 the other night and it was saints best team. Dont be mistaking this for q friendly ask walsh if he thought it was a friendly when he was having xray for broken jaw. saints pack may be bigger but is still average as is there backs apart from lomax. For me there is 3 potential winners, wigan, leeds, and warrington. St hellens and huddersfield competing for 4th and 5th then catalans then salford then the two hull teams.

You didn't like Dean Sampson hitting the thug in the Wigan shirt but you are telling somebody to jump off a bridge?
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.

Dont be so sure - Keating is a poor replacement. Even in the superb 2012 Bulldogs team he was the weak link and only got his chance due to injuries. He has a decent kicking game but little else.

I do think Rovers have signed some decent forwards though, Weyman in particular if he can stay fit.

Err I think you'll find it was Saints playing with 12 men for part of that game and not Wigan, and that wasn't the 'best team' as you put it. Makinson, Masoe, Wheeler, Beaumont & Clough were all missing. It was also Walsh's first game and Soliola's first back after injury, so there's a lot more to come from Saints.

Potential Man of Steel; I think he's awesome.

How old are you?? 12


I can't remember reading many or even any posts where you contribute something positive, instead you post pathetic dribble and posts / topics go downhill


Back on topic


I've gone for saints this year, thought a year on they'd be better and hungry, my saints mates say otherwise and they could struggle.

Come September we'll all find out, best wishes to all and enjoy our great game
