#3170678 Challenge Cup Final Ticket Sales

Posted by stevereed100 on Yesterday, 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.

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.

#3147857 25 Jun: CCQF - Hull KR v Catalans Dragons KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by stevereed100 on 26 June 2015 - 04:07 PM

Advice HKR Bob and Rovers Baz stay off Rovers topics. The ull mob had got almost to the end of page 6 with the help of their friends in posting their hate . Hvy wg posts sense but that just sets a platform for the mob.

Sit back in the knowledge that we won by scoring several cracking tries. Catalan are a very strong side but for 40 min couldn't show anything much in attack and their kicking game was poor.

Do not dare to comment on tonights game....

I for one am hoping for a Hull v Rovers final....after all our combined visits to Wembley it is the only way the city of Hull will get a winner. And if Hull scrape the win the massive chip their fans have about Rovers being the jumped up junior might be put to rest. And we can just get on beating them more often than not.

Ben Thaler really needs to keep his mouth shut. He seems to think he has the respect of the players and is their best friend.
Instead of telling the Cats players to shut up (or changing his wrong decision) he tries to wind them up/ argue with them.
And he keeps telling the players to tackle low when a player is running at them, its their choice what they do ,its his to REFEREE.

And he is being used by the RFL to bring on young refs, god help us.

#3127917 23 May: Catalans Dragons v Wigan Warriors KO 6pm (TV)

Posted by stevereed100 on 23 May 2015 - 05:55 PM

We might see some humilility from Wigan now. Or was it "how Catalans managed the Ref".

Wigan have too often been the big team bullies delighting in stuffing weakened teams but for many seasons now they have not been unbeatable.

Out of the Cup before the quarter finals and droppin down the League,how sad.


I say all this quietly.

#3124764 attendances tonight

Posted by stevereed100 on 18 May 2015 - 03:10 PM

Season ticket value for money, Play off game usually on Telly, save a few quid and still see the game??

Am I just too old?

The chance to see my own team live, be it cup or league, outweighs any issue about sky for free. Anyone who cannot afford a cup ticket probably cannot afford a sky subscription.

At 62 I still feel that being there supporting my team contributes to the result and being involved at the game beats watching the tv....I can always do that later to see how we were robbed!

Sorry for using Wigan as my example but how a regular gate of 13000 becomes 4000 when they play in the cup and move across the road beats me. Makes me feel those "fans" do not deserve success, they certainly don't appreciate it. Expect at least 7000 at the KC Lightstream v Catalans despite the difficulties of travel for the away fans and at least 10000 for Leeds across the river.....if we are allowed to play at different times I will be at both.

Think Rovers v Catalan should be a good game, must have been sthg like 70 points a game so far in the 2 league games. Plus both teams are big scorers in other games.

Why this pessimism about Hull? The dream final is a distinct possibility.....lets have this 1980 jibe settled once and for all and lets see if Hull can actually win at Wembley. Thats the only way any team from Hull can get a trophy in London.

#3121198 hull fc shirt!

Posted by stevereed100 on 11 May 2015 - 02:53 PM

Yes I think it was a great idea but asking too much to list every player who ever played in history of 150 years. Rovers stuck to the 15 who played at Wembley in 1980!

I would have been proud to wear that shirt but memories of the famous Black and White remain. Inherited Clives jockstrap...big balls to fill....free entry to Rovers and City....hitting Steve Pitchford...being abused playing for Hull at Craven Park by those I sat alongside for years...good memories. Probably best of all playing alongside Tony Banham, never a dull moment...oh and Don Robson.

#3115638 1 May: Wigan Warriors v Hull KR KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by stevereed100 on 03 May 2015 - 12:47 AM

Campese asking for a release from his contract due to personal reasons. Heard this at Hull u19's derby today!!!!


Must be true then.


When Rovers withdrew Lunt Campese Tilse and Larroyer to add to Mantellato (Aussie wedding) and the existing injuries it was obvious that they were not expecting to win so took a safety first approach. To lose 60 nil at Wigan after a short turnround was disappointing but was only 2 points lost. The test is Wakefield at home on Thursday and the Wigan cuptie the following Friday,a far more important one off game than Fridays. 


Why play the cup game on a Friday night (A 2pm set off on a working day to make sure covered for the usual Friday afternoon/evening accidents and road closures is unreasonable. Pity Wigan cannot even play the game on their own ground,perhaps by default it should have been changed to Hull as a penalty for not being big enough to have their own ground available.) 


Having beaten Hull Saints Wigan Huddersfield and Catalans so far this season we can clearly knock over the other top 8 teams.


Friday nights in Lancashire for Hull and Rovers are killers for crowd support especially after up to 1000 have spent up in Perpignan. I got back to Cardiff at midnight on Wednesday so a SKY game in Wigan was never an option.

Thought this was cancelled due to lack of interest.....or was it interested players? Or given both teams declining attendances, interested fans.

#2954808 Five men who could be next Hull KR boss

Posted by stevereed100 on 04 July 2014 - 09:12 PM

Radford is very popular in east hull, his bar is a meeting point for rovers away trips.

But as he is contracted to Hull we have always honoured the sanctity of the contract. Have heard Paul Cooke may be available?

And of course if we took Radford it would leave Hull in trouble, nobody would want that job after years of failing.

Posted by stevereed100 on 03 July 2014 - 10:07 PM

Blimey, that sentence strikes fear into the hearts and minds of RL fans over the world I'm sure

These Cas fans are getting very cocky and in danger of losing the support as 2cnd favourite team.

Irony wasted on you?
