#3184238 29/8/2015 RL Challenge Cup Final Hull Kingston Rovers v Leeds Rhinos, Wembley...

Posted by stevereed100 on Yesterday, 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.

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.

#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.

#3172745 Should Wigan cancel Sam Tomkins Contract?

Posted by stevereed100 on 08 August 2015 - 08:58 AM

You are absolutely right. The "big head" deserves a bit of ridicule and its nice that Wigan were dumped out of the Cup at home in a preliminary round.
Why would Rovers even think about him when we have Dixon and Cockayne. Plus we couldn't afford his stupid money even after the goldrush of Wembley.
Just a bit of fun based on facts.

12 Feb 1969 back at College of Commerce but was earning 10 shillings a week at BP and a company bike the previous summer.

Is Nostalgia a thing of the past? Kids today wouldn't believe you. Jimi Hendrix and Family at the Skyline fantastic. Bowie in a free concert in East Park with Ralph McTell and Michael Chapman....and the Rats.

Now ask me what score Hull beat Rovers last month!

#3170678 Challenge Cup Final Ticket Sales

Posted by stevereed100 on 04 August 2015 - 07:57 AM

OF....don't write off Leeds so quickly they might be able to surprise surprise us all with a try or two.

Cannot see any West Hull ticket returns, as Yorkshiremen they have paid for their weekend so they'll be there, pretending to be decent Hull citizens showing solidarity with their wives/husbands/workmates....but secretely hoping Leeds pull off a shock.

On the issue of the run up to the game Leeds have a few tough games to come through whereas Rovers have a few trial games lined up. Halifax at home could be the dress rehearsal, Widnes the playing surface to avoid.

#3169958 Challenge Cup Final Ticket Sales

Posted by stevereed100 on 02 August 2015 - 08:54 PM

Yes Rovers started selling at 7pm yesterday. Even the RLF had sent me a text message by 3pm yesterday afternoon promoting tickets.

And Rovers merchandise c 20 items were online last night. Either the result was fixed or our Marketing teams are pretty hot. Our physio definitely is.

#3168056 1 Aug: CCSF2 - Hull Kingston Rovers v Warrington Wolves KO 12.45pm

Posted by stevereed100 on 30 July 2015 - 06:02 PM

Rovers will put their strongest side out, not one player will give a thought to the middle 8s. Wembley is the sole target. With the highest ticket sales of the 4 clubs in the semis....7000+...the fans want one thing only, in
fact this game has spoilt our focus on the league games since making the semis.

Who knows what the result might be but we did master Wigan away after losing by 60 points 2 weeks earlier.

The middle 8s start for us on 8/8 and we can think about that then. Win the semi and they will be a distraction , lose the semi and then we can treat them with respect.

Going back to Headingley for the semi is like the good old days in the 80s, win or lose.

#3164940 England hookers - four into two spots?

Posted by stevereed100 on 26 July 2015 - 01:23 PM

Not seem Hidgson play this year but he didn't stand out when he was in SL.
Looking at it. Higher way I would not lose any sleep if I any of the following were wearing 9 - Roby. McIllorum Hodgson (on others recommendations) Clark Houghton Lunt - we are spoilt. McIllorrum is also Wane's favourite and many Wigan fans (some good judges as well) consider him the best hooker we have had in modern times.

You need to see Hodgson in the NRL. Stands out very much at that level of intensity. Good enough last year to be headhunted into NRL so not such a shrinking violet but then Sky hardly show the lower teams . Houghton also gets overlooked on that basis.
