Matongo is still relatively new to the game this is his first full season with the 19's, i watch a lot of the 19's games home and away as my nephew playes for them, Matongo's progression in such a short time has been a joy to watch. Osborne is also a very useful player, they will find it extremely tough on Friday but it will be a massive experience for them.
Considering our 19's have been short every week with players playing first team and injuries it's been a credit to them that they finished 3rd overall.

35 years to be precise. At 30 years I invested in 2 car registrations, KR10 FC5 and KR10 5FC as permanent reminders. Any Hull fan wishing to scrap them is invited to make a bid. For my sins I also acquired HU11 FFC thinking they had a few enthusiasts out there but the value slipped greatly as their home crowds evaporated and form slipped. HU11 KRL and KKR seem to be gaining value whilst HU11 HKR is a safe each way bet. So any offer starting at 50-0 will be entertaining,10-5 to that.
Just imagine a match thread dedicated to a Rovers game reaching 20 pages, I never did 10 years ago.[/quote]
To be fair Steve 10 years ago we would have had to right a letter to each other to take the ######

so large numbers of these u19s who are good enough for SL are just quitting the game for good if they don't get a pro contract at 19?
Doesn't seem likely that a) there are large numbers of players who are good enough to be picked up at 16 but not good enough to be even given a contract at any club at 19 who are then going to become SL standard players
Or that these players who are good enough at 16 but not good enough at 19 but are good enough at 21 will get there by playing in a competition full of players who also aren't even good enough for a contract in the lower leagues.
You seem to be missing my point, at no point should a club have to decide if at 19 a players potential future career is over or not. Jamie Peacock apparently said in an interview at 19 he wouldn't of given himself a contract. Now how many Jamie Peacocks are potentially out there who need time to mature and develope. As I said I speak from personal experience, good players with bags of potential with nowere to go, SL teams can only have so many in there squads.
I don't know who you support sorry to sound ignorant but will your club be able to raise a 23's.
He will be missed. Always gives 100% and often changes the game. Looks like we're trying to save money and hit the recruitment hard.
Save money correct, two hookers on big money doesn't make sense but the most important fact is that we need to get Cunningham playing first team football for us or we could risk losing a very talented local player.
I was made redundant last year fortunately I managed to find a decent job after 5 months but the period being out of work was a real eye opener. The whole employment game is now set around agencies and zero hour contracts paying the absolute minimum wage. The story doesn't suprise me at all in Hull they reckon there are at least 80 people on average chasing every advertised job.
Do you think many casual fans would be making the trip to Manchester for MW anyway? I would have thought most of the Hull and Rovers fans going to MW would be fairly hardcore RL fans and wouldn't watch City if they were playing in their back garden.
With 3 derbies in the season I can see some who go to city and the rugby definitely going to Wembley, it's possibly a once in a life time game for City.
Agree, glad the final whistle came in our favour, academy games are so much more fun.
Your nephew reads the game well, needed more support runners.
Number 5 could be the next big thing!!
Agreed I had the choice of today or tomorrow off work and family came first though if I wasn't working would have been making the trip both days.
Was really impressed with your number four showed some power in the first half.
First game of the academy season down at wilderspool
2pm kick off - looking forward to it.
Is the future bright???
I was there for that my nephew was Hulls number 7, was a good game but if only we had another 5 mins. Wire were excellent in the first very clinical. As you mentioned the Hull winger Lancaster had pace to burn.
