The locals will know when Hull KR have arrived.

 

They'll still be able to hear the whining when the plane's engines are turned off.

As I left the pub late last night, the Rovers supporting landlord bade me goodnight, having already replayed the #### derby again for all our benefits.

 

I shouted that I'd be popping in to see him on Monday. "No doubt with your string of f***ing onions round your neck" he replied.

 

How very astute of him.

Do you still have that French bicycle?

Yes, but with a morning start in the Three John Scotts I may not be capable of staying upright on it by early evening.

 

Perhaps a few renditions of "All you need is love" by the Beatles might have the desired effect, especially if it skips after the first few seconds...

Victory is sweet, defeat is bitter.

A game in perpignan is to be enjoyed, win or lose.

Nice of Ullman to think of us.

Je suis arrivee......bleeding french wont change of 500 euro note. All this "oil" money sloshing around at Rovers causes its own problems!

Wonder if London Broncos can beat the high and mighty Hull, never beaten always the best.

I had no idea Rovers had got lucky with North Sea Oil Steve, congratulations.

 

 

Where did you drill for it...the middle of the South Stand?

I wonder why not?

 

As of 20 April 2010, money exchange offices in the United Kingdom stopped selling €500 notes due to their use in money laundering. The UK Serious Organised Crime Agency   claimed that "90% of all €500 notes sold in the UK are in the hands of organised crime",

8 of the buggers.....why print them if they wont honour them?

Still I always feel like a million dollars watching the Rervers.

Sneaky confidence that we have the depth in numbers to beat the Cats.....their result v Widnes put into context by Warrington yday.

Rovers without the Walker bros, Eden, Langley, Gleeson, Keating, Dave disco Hodgson etc still strong enough to beat Hull so however busted we are after Thursdays walk in the park we might just pull it off. If not , well we never win 2 over Easter.

Back to le Boulevard Saint Sandercock pour le vin!

Catalan for me , that last game must have taken a lot out of KR otherwise i would have gone the other way, could be close .

Gone for Catalans as the home side, but this one could go either way really.

Hull KR are +14 on the handicap.

 

Looks a very good bet to me.

I'm not expecting anything from this game.

 

Unfortunately this is the first trip I've missed since our 2006 promotion. Catalan is an absolute belter of a trip and I've enjoyed each and every one of them.

 

It looks like Ben Cockayne is out, Greg Eden in and Wayne Ulugia has not travelled.

 

Just as long as we are not embarrassed, I'm just happy to get through it and look to the week after.
