#3184271 29/8/2015 RL Challenge Cup Final Hull Kingston Rovers v Leeds Rhinos, Wembley...

Nice, we were near St Davids a few wks ago....if you get the weather for it, I'd recommend Whitesands beach and Carfai beach

Steve lives and works there so I assume he's well acquainted with the local area.

 

I still think it was a bit extreme for him to move there, knowing how yesterday was going to pan out but, give him credit, he made a wise choice.

At least Hull Daily Mail's Hull KR reporter Charlie Mullan has a sense of humour...

Today was a bit like three 2013 RL cup finals rolled into one but with an extra penalty goal.

 

Oh, and how plenty of Rovers fans enjoyed that result.

 

If only Rovers had dropped a goal during the game, then their "10-5 club" could be a useful anagram.

Oh well, never mind.

Were any records set today?, Kieran Dixon, 4 knock ins in 10 mins.

Still, he couldn't compete with Welham, his missed tackles to minutes ratio must have been astonishing.

That Briscoe's a good lad, where did he learn to score tries like that?

Well, it's a nice bright start to the day in Hull so let's hope it's replicated in the smoke later on this afternoon and we have great weather for the final.

 

Unfortunately, I have to run an errand into East Hull this morning, but what a perfect day to do it.....

Does anybody know if I'll have trouble bringing a backpack into the stadium? I'm coming direct from Stansted airport and my girlfriend and I will both have a schoolbag sized backpack each.

From a Sunderland message board last year...

 

I asked Wembley, "We're attending the Capital One cup final on Sunday, staying over in London on the Saturday night. Will there be any problems getting into the stadium with a small rucksack/man bag/messenger bag containing our Saturday clothes".

Their response was, "Small bags or rucksacks are permitted into the Stadium. However, unfortunately we do not have any locker facilities for our Visitors to store personal belongings and would advise that if a bag is brought into the Stadium, it is kept with the Visitor at all times".

Give some credit to Leeds, they might just manage to get a draw. In your scenario it took Rovers to ask the question, Leeds were not that optimistic.

A draw would be great for everyone, another game to look forward to, more revenue and all the emphasis in Hull still on the only win at Wembley being ours and against them. I will take that.

That'll do me as well Steve, massively looking forward to the game now, tbh.

 

I know it might seem a bit odd coming from a black and white but the nearer it gets the more excited I am.

 

Although I'm one of the 7.69% (statistic correct at 0645 on 28/08/2015) of voters who didn't want either team to win, if Rovers prevail I'll have won a few quid from a parachute payment bet and it won't be too unpleasant watching Danny Mcguire shed a few tears, whereas if Leeds win.....well I'm sure you can guess the rest.  B)

As long as our lass doesn't expect a trip to London and a new dress.

I'm sure she'd be proud to be with you whatever you wore.




#3182814 Misheard lyrics

Posted by Old Frightful on 26 August 2015 - 03:57 PM

I try to discover,

A little something to make me sweeter,

Oh Leeds refrain from breaking my heart,

We're so much worse than you,

My team just seem so poo,

This is the first time we've been at Wembley in 29 years,

 

Can't you let us win,

Can't you let us win,

Can't you let us win,

Can't you let us win,

 

So, I see you're mauling us, oh Leeds please, don't make a real spectacle of us......

From the thread title it sounded like somebody had spent the entire day in a Wetherspoons and then tried singing a Proclaimers' song on their way home.
