#3264137 Erasure star Andy Bell to attend Hull KR's opener v Castleford.

Posted by stevereed100 on 29 January 2016 - 06:53 PM

Even though half our fans are kids,students,housewives,disabled or retired we have sold more season passes for a third year running with more than a week to go to the beginning of playing rugby.


What is Hulls excuse?


#3239601 BBC, Rugby and drugs

Clearly Stevereed100 thinks it doesn't apply to League!


What!

I support the view that league has set the standard in testing and hence has identified cheats.
I was seeking to clarify the union biais in the tv news that used League as the headline.


#3223070 Sam Tomkins out of series.

Posted by stevereed100 on 29 October 2015 - 03:58 PM

That can only be seen as good news. Can anyone explain how a player based in Australia who has had a poor season due to form and injury was ever "selected" for the squad?

The player bigger than the team syndrome has struck again. Apart from form not being the key to selection tomkins was injured for gods sake but we have listened to him telling us he would be fit for the series. Was he ever going to say anything other, he wanted to be on the payroll and "with the team"....but then so did i and no-one listened to me.

The fans and worst Mcnamara have spent weeks debating where a spot could be found for a player who was never going to be fit and hadnt done enough this season to earn a place.

Who is to be held accountable for this farce?

TOMKINS can slink back into the pack and focus on being fit for 2017. He needs to re-establish himself, karma may be against him.


#3219887 Leeds v Kiwis live on Premier Sports

Posted by stevereed100 on 24 October 2015 - 08:06 AM

Thought the coverage was excellent,even down to the heavy promotion of the France games and NZ series. Good camera work,good northern commentary without all the stupid jokey asides etc
Premier did us proud.


#3186874 29/8/2015 RL Challenge Cup Final Hull Kingston Rovers v Leeds Rhinos, Wembley...

[quote name="westhuller" post="3186158" timestamp="1441220871"]As the saying goes if you don't like it don't give it, you've been going on about it for 30 odd years now it's our turn to have a bit of fun, give over and take it for what it is[

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.

Hope so as they are a bit irrelevant these days.

You quote the bookies but Neil probably had a few quid on Hull.
Or was he confusing it with underdogs at Wembley.

Hull FC pointless at Wembley. Fits as they cannot win there.

Posted by stevereed100 on 30 August 2015 - 08:38 AM

so it wasnt a record winning margin for a final ? 
It was a miss match from top to bottom and a forgone conclusion .


Everyone knew it would be a mountain for 10th v 1st but these were the top 2 teams in the Cup. Rovers beat Bradford away, Wigan away, Catalan home and Warrington. They earned the right , many others didnt.

Mantellato managed to maintain his top scorer position.

One solace...50-0 means we are mentioned in the record book twice....biggest margin and still the only team from Hull to win at Wembley. I can die happy.

Looking good now. Panic in the Leeds ranks over selection.Rovers seem to be milking it, with the send off yesterday,the dvd, the party in the city centre Monday.

Setting off in an hour, dont want to arrive late!

Party on Wembley Way to look forward to, car decorated, just the game to look forward to. Hope it doesnt pass too quick.


#3183372 Bye bye Boots "n" All

Posted by stevereed100 on 27 August 2015 - 07:22 PM

Sky have never had a Challenge Cup final preview show.  Why should they suddenly have one now?



Because its Rovers of course. Having put up with years of little coverage, years of Saints, Wigan etc this is our moment in the spotlight. How can you be so heart, ....lass.

Thanks OF for getting us off early.

Clearly Leeds are the best team in the League but they are beatable / have been beaten. Rovers have shocked Wigan and Warrington in the Cup and beaten top teams in the League so we cannot be written off.

Recent weeks we have have some disruption through injury to the team selection and through the return of long tem absentees. The fear is that Albert Kelly may be our Gavin Miller but if he is fully fit he could be the MOM that wins us the Cup.

IMO anything can happen on the day from a cracking freescoring game including a Robins win or a blow out for Leeds.

Whatever will be....Que Sera.....but it will be a loud and proud day. Personally I am going to belt out the pre match singing, shout myself silly and enjoy the moment. One final Wembley memory perhaps.

26 - 16 to the Rovers......Mantellato to confirm his place as the Neil Fox of points scoring, Albie to write his name in history and Campese to make it ours again in 2016.


#3176542 14 Aug: Super 8s - St Helens v Hull FC KO 8pm

Think thats 707 insane posts....OF can we merge?


#3173198 A referee has just told a player to score a try

Posted by stevereed100 on 09 August 2015 - 09:50 AM

Ben was not going to put the ball down...the fool....play to the whistle.

 

But I do object to refs coaching, their running commentary annoys the hell out of me. 

 

Are they their to stop the laws being broken or to penalise offenders?

 

They spend so much energy telling a defending line when to go they miss teams that are constantly stealing a yard or two. It is for the defenders to get back,stay onside, they know the rules.

 

All this familiarity with the players ...who wants to know that Micky Higham was the best ref in Super League. Tell him to shut up, penalise him or whatever.




#3172760 Should Wigan cancel Sam Tomkins Contract?

Posted by stevereed100 on 08 August 2015 - 09:26 AM

You make my point for me. "Obviously" in the 17. Why, he took the Aussie gold and has done little to deserve a place on the bench. He is one of the boys and has his Sky PR team on his side but lets hope McNamara grows a pair and makes the right decision based on form as the season ends.


#3172755 Hull FC make contract offer to Sika Manu.

Posted by stevereed100 on 08 August 2015 - 09:17 AM

Well said Wellsy.

Perhaps we should start making these pathetic "jokes" every time every club signs an NRL player. Would be even more boring than it is.

Merger mania is just a dream in the eyes of these teams who hate coming to the city of hull to get beaten time and time again. Also envy by a few poorly supported teams, particularly in terms of away support.

The City of Culture will continue to make its mark on the greatest game.
