#3273000 13 Feb: SL: Catalans Dragons v Hull FC KO 6pm

So much pluckiness from the slower outside backs!


#3268753 05 Feb: SL Match Thread: Hull FC v Salford Red Devils KO 8pm

Thought Houghten had a good game, Thompson brought a turn of pace to 13 and Pryce looked like he was playing in his slippers at one point.
Our bench rotation hit Salford hard.


Thompson ran a great line for his try and Houghton looked more threatening in attack with his runs from dummy half - something I've always seen as a weakness in his game as he doesn't do it often enough.
Until the last 20 our defense looked something like - teams might struggle putting points past us if they manage an 80 minute stint!


#3266387 Wayne Bennett to coach England?

Posted by Roy Boy on 02 February 2016 - 04:45 PM

The RL can easily afford full time coaches so imo there should not be a club coach earning his spurs under Bennett - he should be solely tied to England.

This would be a busy job as he should be attending a lot of SL games and holding regular talks with the clubs and players also holding occasional camps for the squad.

 

The players are full time pro's in their rolls and I don't see why the coaches shouldn't be.

 

Just my thoughts - oh and I'm chuffed we have Bennett.

The knackers yard?


#3254315 Leeds Rhinos complete spectacular swoop for Ferres

Posted by Roy Boy on 04 January 2016 - 07:35 PM

Apparently there has been a rush in sales for ball & chains and cctv systems in the Headingley area - apparently according to one shop keeper "it was strange as 18 big blokes seemed to appear from nowhere and put a bulk order in"!


#3248508 Leigh to announce new signing 8pm Monday

Posted by Roy Boy on 18 December 2015 - 11:21 AM

Just wasted half an hour scanning through a discussion that's occurred a hundred times before on this forum
Can anyone please tell me who it is Leigh have signed?


That's what I asked a while ago !!!
I think the answer is nobody, but I'm now of the mind that I don't give a toss and what difference will it make!


#3247822 Leigh to announce new signing 8pm Monday

Posted by Roy Boy on 16 December 2015 - 06:53 PM

So have they signed somebody or is it poppycock?
I'm losing the will to live!

Lee Smith???


#3242989 Lee Smith to play for nowt?....

Posted by Roy Boy on 04 December 2015 - 01:14 AM

He's a bit of an enigma in the sense that he started off very well at Leeds and then seemed to start believing his own hype and went off the rails, also then wasting time trying RU.
I doubt he'll be able to establish a place, but fair play to the kid to put himself in with a chance and I for one like that kind of attitude 👍🏼


#3239554 Bottom four 2016

Posted by Roy Boy on 26 November 2015 - 10:04 AM

I would be very disappointed if we didn't make the 6 this year our pack is second to none in the league our 6 and 7 still leave unanswered questions though.


Strengthened by the removal of Westerman!


#3236375 Is Joe Westerman a Warrington player?

Hope so!


#3159044 Hull KR sign French International half back...

Posted by Roy Boy on 16 July 2015 - 03:30 PM

There's a reason why he's not playing for France anymore.

Hint : tackles like my grandma

Got any videos of her in action ?? I'd love to see those ;)




#3158198 Hull FC and Hull KR to merge...

Posted by Roy Boy on 14 July 2015 - 03:50 PM

The generational factor is a thin thread.

 

Most of the youngsters I chat to at games are as "dyed in the wool" as the old codgers like me.

 

So any thoughts of "time will heal" are well off the mark.




#3158187 Hull FC and Hull KR to merge...

Posted by Roy Boy on 14 July 2015 - 03:36 PM

You can go on all you like!

I'm from Hull and know what the majority of fans think about a future merger of the senior clubs and it isn't pretty.

 

Both Hull FC and Rovers fans would stay away in droves and I can guarantee the sum gate would be smaller than either club gets at present.

 

Sorry but you country folk have no idea about the rivalry here in the big city :tease:

If the matter is closed why is McGuire going to get 'serious verbal'?

You're no sherlock Holmes are you?
