As much as I hope and Pray that FC are knackered after the Derby shenanigans from Thursday, but I can't see past another Loss for the Londoners. FC have made 33% more yards in their 9 games thus far and I think that like most other SL teams this year, their pack will have too much for us. London need to start as they finished against Catalans and Hull need to start like Catalans finished for this to be a close contest.

 

Crowd wise, it seems that the FC declaration regarding "no more cheap tickets" will deliver a crowd of about 9k........

The game depends on the enigma that is Hull FC. The big club that does not play like one. London have improved as a side so if Hull ttreat this game as an occasion to give reserve graders a hit out then a "Widnes" performance is possible. If they treat it seriously then a "Huddersfield" outcome is likely.

 

London have to keep plugging away and remember Hull FC are very good at beating.. Hull FC.

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

Sounds about right.

 

Except there will be few, if any, reserve graders in the home team. It'll just look like there are,

 

Hull 28 Larndon 20.

I think this would be the right time for those players dropped by Radford to prove themselves. If they can't perform against London, those players probably shouldn't be at the club.

I see James Cunningham isn't in the London squad. Presumably that's a condition of the loan agreement.

Looking at the squad Hull have named, you could argue that it's actually stronger than the one that played against our dear friends and neighbours on Thursday.

The Bookies are giving London a 34 point start on the handicap.

Think that`s pretty generous,even allowing for Hull`s very tough encounter thursday evening.

Even taking into account the fact that we are improving and finished on a relative high against Cats

I still think it will be Hull by 18ish.

agree...that is a very generous head start and I may well have to slip a tenner out of the wife's purse!

If you're any good you might find yourself playing the second half game.

Given that Hull have scored 30+ points in five of their six home games, that looks a bit cautious to me.

Surely even I could score against London...

(Let it be known that if Hull lose, it was probably my fault for saying this!)
