For a moment then I thought Hull KR had stayed on the pitch at Wembley after everybody else had gone home.


If memory serves, Hull FC were beating Swinton 31-0 once and managed to lose 31-32.


My good mate Ullman will no doubt either confirm or correct this.

Hello Old Frightful, as a Swinton fan sorry to intrude on private grief, but I think I remember this match at the Boulevard in the 80's. I think the comeback was in the high twenty points rather than 31-32, but may be wrong. I seem to recall it was one of Tommy Frodsham's trademark interceptions which won the match. I think the match cost Len Casey his job as coach.


I replied to this post on the General board and wondered if other Swinton fans remember this great fightback at Hull, and if my recollections are correct ?
