Hull and Rovers: How It All Began

Professor Tony Collins

 

Tues 8 July, 12:30 - 1:30pm

Hull History Centre

Worship Street, Hull, HU2 8BG

http://www.hullhistorycentre.org.uk/

 

East Hull: Rovers. West Hull: Hull. What could be simpler?

But until 1895, Rovers were West Hull’s team and Hull FC were the pride of East Hull. In this lunchtime talk Professor Tony Collins will explore the origins of rugby’s fiercest rivalry and explain how rugby was born in the pubs, the factories and the docks of nineteenth century Hull.

 

As this talk will show, it is impossible to tell the history of rugby without telling the story of Hull - and just as impossible to tell the history of Hull without the story of rugby.

 

Free entry - all welcome

Shall we run a sweepstake on when the first punch is thrown? ;)

Bump.

Won't be able to make this one unfortunately. Is it the same talk Tony did at the Freedom Centre?
