#3096257 27 Mar: Hull KR v St Helens KO 8pm (TV)

The off the ball shoulder charge to the head from Green on Burns was a disgrace to our game.

 

He should get a few matches for that.

 

And the various officials should have a few weeks rest for missing that and the forrerd passes.

That cannot be right, my great grandfather said he always scored when he played over in West Hull and that the Boulevard sans michelle was a breeding ground for dirty hookers.

Did he have any Rolling Stones records?




#3095752 Germanwings

Posted by Old Frightful on Yesterday, 07:11 AM

I watched the news, about this possibly being a deliberate act, breaking yesterday in absolute bewilderment.

 

It seems the door to the cabin had been made virtually impenetrable from the main body of the aircraft after the 9/11 terrorist atrocities.

 

Has this been done to all large passenger aircraft?  

 

Looks like the actions of the terrorists that day played a part in this tragedy also.

 

I can't help but feel for the parents of the pilot, they shouldn't be forgotten in all this. They were mourning together with the families of all the passengers until this news broke. That they then had to be separated for their own protection must have been extra devastation added to what they originally felt, mourning what they thought was the innocent death of their son.

It's "The Big City Derby" so there.

 

I know because Eddie Hemmings says it is.




#3095255 Graffiti in Hull

"#DERBY DAY"?

 

How come the graffiti depicts Hull and Hull KR and not Wigan and Saints?!?!

 

(Right, I'll be off then...)

Gotcha....

You're really getting into this TRL lark now aren't you?

Even when they get the punching plonker back I doubt their pack can match it with many of the other leading teams.

:biggrin: :biggrin:  Oh, I like that.

 

It gets across who you're talking about better than writing his name.

a smart team would see the defenders rushing the kicker as perhaps an opportunity for a short pass, or chip over the top to take advantage of that.

Leave it as it is.

 

The team that decides to try for a charge down pays their money and makes their choice. If it rewards the team with the ball then tough, that's a risk the other team have to take in trying to get their hands on the ball further up field than otherwise.

 

I remember Jamie Peacock scoring a try against Oz at Hudds from a Gary Connolly? charge down, it was ace.

Still wish we'd thought of the Widnes idea first. :(

 

A Hull FC legend, credit to RL, all round good guy and great ambassador for our sport.

#3090623 If Hull KR win tomorrow, will they have helped set a new SL record?

Lighten up a little and take it to heart a touch less. I'm sure you'll enjoy it on here a bit more.

Shamelessly pinched from elsewhere.

But difficult to argue with.

If they can only beat my team by one point at home then they must be pants.
