Briscoe hat trick

6-18, KTC

That must have gone down really well.

7 tries to 1 with just under 10 left at a place we usually struggle at. Im gutted I wont get to see the Watkins/Briscoe combination for the next 2 years.

 

Do you have any chance of remission?

Nobody as far as I can recall.

Hull's big enough, and on the latest re-alignment of income via the ground developments at HKR and the TV deal HKR have a new lease of life like several other uncompetitive SL clubs.

Good luck to them.

I believe Dead Shot Keen mentioned it on one or two occasions.

Well I was pleased to be a guest in one of the new boxes in the North Stand for this.

The food, beer, surroundings and company were excellent.

 

It then when downhill!

 

An error strewn display from HKR who after a first half effort appeared to run out of steam against a Leeds team that tried the middle, got nowhere fast and then decided, wisely, to go round the Rovers defence.

Welham dashed out the line on several occasions leaving the KR defence in tatters and certainly looks very rusty following his long spell on the sidelines.

Greg Eden - well err mmm

Shaun Briscoe described him before the game - "What he's got can't be coached, but hopefully the mistakes can be coached out of him" (It does make sense if you think about it).

 

I do wonder about Leeds strength down the middle this year and feel sure teams will look to win the forward battle (and probably succeed) but once they start throwing it around they are very difficult to stop.

Why do you remind me of a weather vane swinging in the wind. Hull KR were exhibit A on you " Let's merge to create a big time club" argument and you were forever moaning about their small crowds, 500,000 cash shortage as outlined by Hudgell. Now, when faced by evidence to disprove your theory, you have done a complete " volte face".

He didn't.

 

You see an 11,000 crowd for the opening of the revamped stadium against Leeds with a great away following isn't proof of anything.

 

Lyndsay made his comments at a time when neither Hull club were doing much and if you remember neither Hull club entered Superleague at it's inception.

 

To use one five figure crowd to have a go doesn't warrant a reply, not when Paris opened with 16.000 Wakefield closed a season on 11,000, Crusaders opened in Wrexham on 11,000 and Salford closed a season on 10,000 the other year.

 

The problem for the Hull clubs remain as it's all about two things - having the fans and the players to compete. So far (ONE round) the crowds look good. On the pitch Hull let seven tries in and HKR were blown away.

 

Dead shot Keen wasn't talking crowds. He was talking a successful team. And the record has been there since RL began that if you want to keep your high crowd you have to compete on the pitch.

Could you please remind me how many SL sides are within a 25 mile radius of either Hull club? Now repeat the exercise for Wigan, Wire or Huddersfield. Then please explain why there isnt the potential for both Hull clubs to be enormous

Did someone mention video refs and forward passes?


                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.

You explain why despite a big amateur game and 22,000 fans this weekend that neither club is anywhere near "enormous". I'd like to see a Hull club challenge the Leeds, Warrington's ,Wigan's and Saints, perhaps fans of those clubs are happy that Hull doesn't present any real challenge.

 

Don't rock the boat or the cups may fall off the bandwagon?
