Not at all. Why were we in a position to score in the first place? HKR aren't known for their defence.

They are now.

With Rovers this season the team has been assembled to entertain. Note that move in their own 20 metres straight from the kick off, was it 5 passes to move from one side over to the other wing. With such gay abandon the points against will always suffer but so what if you score at will at the other end. And did they not tackle their hearts out last night, beating a much heavier pack, and bruising them. Roll on the Derby, no certainties there other than 80 high tension minutes. Saints v Wigan a bit of a damp squib.

Ahem, Saints v Wigan's titled Derby between  two of the  founding members of the Rugby League and the biggest game in Hull. Ofcourse Saints v Wigan is the older Rugby League Derby too.

That cannot be right, my great grandfather said he always scored when he played over in West Hull and that the Boulevard sans michelle was a breeding ground for dirty hookers.

Perhaps Saints will hold back given they will have the Lord Derby....all bow....on their mind.

Perhaps us Ull folk are fed up of Saints v Wigan, league, cup, play offs, Grand Final over and over again....hardly a big deal these days. Plus both clubs are permaglaze on Sky.

If the Hull derby is not The Derby how come the RFL make us play each other every Magic Weekend?

Beat that.

Our games are special.....if only to us.

Whotf was Lord Derby....think 2 tribes from one town split by a river, Dockers v Trawlermen, red and white v black and white, FC v KR ...all of this symbolism sets us aside from Lancastrian imposters....

However thats next week. This week the best backs selection in the League will struggle behind a pack missing its punch. But home advantage team spirit and rare Sky coverage might swing it for us.....can look forward to extensive coverage in future years, if only Cas had been champions last year!
