lancashire cup final around 1967 was 2-2 between saints and wire

Just one other thing.

 

This "On report" malarky is getting beyond the joke. Richard Whiting was lifted above the horizontal and dumped on the floor, head downwards. Both touchies rushed on, like the ref, having had a clear view of the incident, and the famous crossed arms symbol appears.

 

It didn't change the outcome of the game, Hull wouldn't have scored if they played all night, but let's give punishment out at the time it occurred, not several days down the track.


                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.

So after wanting Sharpe out, no better under Radford?

About right.

 

Amazingly enough, Hull should have had a couple of tries. Firstly when Talanoa knocked on with the line at his mercy and secondly when Thompson lost the ball in the act of grounding.

 

Both these incidents were indicative of the rest of the handling throughout the game so they came as no surprise, tbh.

Salford 5-2 Quins from a few years back went the full 80.

 

Think there was a 4-0 Salford-Catalans score in the Stacey Jones era.

And the infamous 0-0 Challenge Cup semi in the late 80s (Hull and Halifax).

There seems to be a link here somewhere... :(

What is surprising OF is that Hull have gone almost a decade now playing pretty much the same style of football. The Hull fans have done it tough for a number of years without a creative spine.

 

Dare I say it that Paul Cooke was the last player who shook things up at half-back. What has happened to the young Wests Tigers 7 who came over with massive expectations?

Was the 4 a try?  The 5-2 was just kicks.

I'm not sure, but it had snow I think. Both sound thrillers.

Lee Radford doesn't appear to rate him much.

 

Time is running out as regards the Hull fans' patience. There are a few that will go no matter what but plenty who won't.

Today's game was so dull, that I found a spelling mistake in an advert on the big screen. :(

Dull or exciting, spelling mistakes are serious business.

and still the same at HT.........bit of an arm wrestle by the sounds of it

Arm wrestle? If only the game had hit those dizzy heights.

If ever a game demonstrated the running sore that is our ongoing problem at half back it was today's. If Miller doesn't get a chance after that shambles then he never will.

You missed out the legend that was Richard Agar & Peter Gentle. Radford wouldn't have been my choice, but prepared to give him a chance. Patience however wearing rather thin after todays "display". Team selection was just bizarre - even after you account for our lack of props. Ellis in the front row, Rankin at full back, Heremaia at stand-off, Crooks on the bench, Miller in the stand....... I could go on.
Radfords post-match interview had me shuddering in recollection of the dark days under Len Casey:
Humberside reporter "What cost you the game Lee?"
Radford "Individuals"
Oh dear.......

It's an easy kick for the lad but, as we say in Rugby League, there's no easy kicks.

Well done to Widnes. A really good tacking stint. And well done to young Tom Gilmore. A well taken drop goal to clinch the game in his first Super Legaue start.
