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.
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.
[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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
