Wakefield, Widnes, Hull KR and Hull FC.


The two Hull clubs are obvious contenders, why on earth they didn't merge all those years ago Lord only knows. Their best players are cherry picked by the other clubs, there's insufficient home grown players coming through, and their crowds combined aren't enough to support one team let alone two.


I think this ought to be discussed, personally.

Too many Aussies in the 2 Hull teams to merge, would never meet the quota rules. 


The merger gets my vote, stay at the KC Stadium...Lightstream version which is purpose built for exclusive use.

Name is easy Hull from the West KR from the East. Keep Old Fateful as the song,Rovers sing it best anyway.

and then our Manc friends can claim the only true Derby and believe it.....

:biggrin:  Not true though I reckon!


Hull fans can properly chant and stuff.  I remember a few years back at Knowsley Road when we played in the fog.  I think it was Longy's debut for you against us (and you beat us if memory serves!).  Hull fans came out with some really funny chants, responding to the ridiculous situation of not seeing half of what was going on.  I think only Hull and Saints fans do spontaneous humerous chants.  I don't remember hearing any other fans doing it, although I might have missed something I don't know.


Thought "shall we sing a song for you" last Thursday followed by Old Faithful (the East Hull version inc references to Wembley and the Boulevard falling over) was quite spontaneous in the tumbleweed atmosphere created by the Hull fatefuls.  Taxi.

No worries.  Aside from anything else, you actually sing a class song as your club song, unlike some other teams I could mention!


But they never win at Wembley.


Back in my box, took a vow not to comment until Rovers lose again as it is not allowed by those in the know, the original Super League teams followers. Too many Aussies my aras.

All this focus on Rovers competing within the salary cap and import quotas. Do none of the other clubs recruit overseas players?

As the team with the leagues top try scorer and top goalkicker and probably the best half back combo perhaps we should credit the club for its entetaining brand of rugby. After all the Sky hype of saints v wigan where was the quality. 2 top clubs in decline, both beaten by the Robins.

Deadshot...you really are missing some good rugby, remember the days of Prohm, Dorahy etc...we may be going back to those great days.

Charged with making a shoulder charge leading to indirect or secondary contact with opponent's head.

Lucky bleeder.

Agree, misses The Derby.
