#3113837 1 May: Hull FC v Salford Red Devils KO 8pm

Posted by Roy Boy on 29 April 2015 - 03:10 PM

Thought this was cancelled due to lack of interest.....or was it interested players? Or given both teams declining attendances, interested fans.

Hate to point this out but a similar thing has happened at HKR!

Average attendance at The KC Stadium (not including the derby or freindlies) = 10,821.6

Average attendance at The KC Lightstream (as above) = 8,260.8


HKR worst home attendance thus far 6,723

Hull FC worst home attendance thus far 9,295


So you're pointing out that when a teams is playing badly attendances drop?


If so, what's your excuse? :tongue:

Sorry to say OF, but if Mandy was comparing physiques with yours, it might have been the sponge man 😉
No offence!

Just managed to get a gross of straws and the coach diverts around it!
Just my luck - you'd think it was Friday the 13th or something!

If Hull's defence continues it's form and Salford don't improve dramatically, then there should only be 1 winner.

However its a case of IF!!!



Hull FC by 18+

Their academy is a moot point. Same with Hull FC.



Is that the Hull FC Academy with 4 players in the England academy team playing tomorrow at Leigh?

#3010033 Could the RFL follow the NRL’s lead and “break the cap”?

Posted by Roy Boy on 08 October 2014 - 07:22 PM

If Super League doesn't start catching up with what the NRL are doing and also raise the cap, I fear Super League is turning into a nursery for the NRL and RU  :shout:

#3001062 Gary Hetherington emails all super league clubs saying Carney shouldn't b...

Posted by Roy Boy on 23 September 2014 - 11:57 AM

Well if all it was was supping his own pee, I really can't see the problem!

It must be something to do with Aussie's - Rolf I believe was a regular down his khassi and look what happened to him!


I can't believe Hetherington would

A send a circular around

B think he could sway other clubs to his wishes

C be in a position to think his club needs to boycott another clubs signings!

#2963282 Comical Cummings' Critical Commentary

Posted by Roy Boy on 21 July 2014 - 11:17 PM

Without entering into a diatribe - it might be easier if the emphasis on the laws of the game wasn't changed every season!

It's got to be baffling for fledgling fans when they change it from one season to the next and occasionally mid season.


Some laws are enforced with vigour and others totally disregarded (Moving off the mark).


I'd prefer all the laws to be used or at least left to the referees to make their own decisions so you know what you'll get.


The comments by Wayne saying he sets the Wigan side up differently for televised games to none televised games rather sums it up for me!

#2924980 04/05/14 - Hull FC v Wakefield Trinity Wildcats KO 3pm

Posted by Roy Boy on 05 May 2014 - 03:02 PM

well can it get any worse?  That was an abject display by Hull - so much that was bad and very little that was good.


I think Radford has proved he ain't the man for the job and Hull need a quality tried and tested coach - end of!

#2916564 Neil Hudgell fined £1000 by RFL for improper conduct!

Posted by Roy Boy on 14 April 2014 - 08:02 PM

a cull is needed at the Rugby League imo - I'd say giving away sponsorship for a few pictures on the side of wagons is a good start!

Some club owners see that the sport is under sold, under valued, parochially managed and and in need of a new standard/quality of the people running the sport.


Unless you're happy with mediocrity and chronyism?


These by the way are my views and not to be mistaken as the views of anybody else unless they would like to like this post!

I'm glad some of the Clubs Chairman are starting to speak up and raise issue with the "powers that be".


I'm sure most club owners are happy to pay few quid to have a rant and the "behind closed doors" happenings should be made more public.

#2914704 10/04/14 - Hull FC v Huddersfield Giants KO 8pm (Sky Sports)

The RL who stated Cup games were to be played on the weekend, specifically Fri Sat and Sunday.

Nobody can blame Hull its those fools at the RFL.

Spoilt what could have been a good game tonight.

Didn't spoil it for me 😀

#2913321 Setaimata Sa to sign for Hull FC?

Posted by Roy Boy on 08 April 2014 - 09:56 AM

Another poor signing by a team who have no idea how sign a good player and all this rubbish about the salary cap I think clubs are just making rules up as they go along it is a joke.

It's easy to spout off without any facts - put some meat on the bones or go troll elsewhere!  :nono:

#2912514 The Tetley's Challenge Cup - Fourth Round Match Thread

Posted by Roy Boy on 07 April 2014 - 01:12 AM

I've watched the "drop goal" half a dozen times now on slow mo and the view down the pitch clearly shows the ball swings left to right - I used the empty seats behind as a reference.
I'm certain it was over but stats will say it wasn't!
Hard luck Giants and good luck Saints.
My point is the general quality of refereeing this season appears to be inconsistent and variable.
Some times a ball comes loose and the player didn't make an effort to keep control of the ball, on another occasion the ball was stripped?
Grapple tackles are no longer an issue this season - how many do you see each game that would have been penalised last season?
I for one think it's time we adopted the Aussie idea and had 2 refs on the pitch ( I realise I'm contradicting my viewpoint somewhat ) but might that clean things up and help development of referees?
Too much goes on in a high intensity game for 1 person to keep an eye on everything and perhaps it might cut down some of the glaring errors we seem to have got in the last couple of years?
