Widnes v Bramley the only floodlit trophy final to be played in the afternoon.

Any idea what the kick off time was?

2011 Four Nations Final, sat 5 rows in, right in front of where Darren Lockyer scored his last ever try.

I had been at Boothferry Park in1982 watching the Australians playing a different sport. Watching Hull KR beat Queensland the following year was just as memorable!

1990 Wembley test match, what a great occassion.

1985, 86 and 87 challange cup finals

The best one involving my club has to be the 1989 yorkshire cup semi final replay v Cas. Would have been the 83 challange cup final if my Dad would have taken me (will never forgive him for that one).

I was at (Perth) Western Reds, Celtic Crusaders and South Wales Scorpions' first ever matches and North Wales Crusaders' first home match. I was at the last London Broncos game before they became Harlequins for a while too. I was at Wales' first game back in 1991 and was of course there when they won the European Cup in Bridgend in 2009 and in Albi in 2010. I also saw Gloucestershire Warriors win a Challenge Cup game against the odds in Yorkshire against Illingworth.

There's probably a few more to that collection too but it's what springs to mind.

Me against summer rugby!!!! I sponsored Gloucesters man of the match that day :rolleyes:

I love the way Whitfield gives a penalty and tells the guy to get up. :D

That match was at Belle Vue

Wasn't there one at the end of the season at "The Jungle"? I have vague memories of Cas fans being dejected at the end. Either way, I went with Phil C - he'd know.

If you could ever find out which boozer you drank in before the game, it sounds like it might be worth knowing for future visits.

It was played in December so it needed to be over before 4pm.

13:30pm was the time I had in mind but wouldn't ague with VW's 14:00pm.

Hull V Huyton March 16th 1975 at The Boulevard. and a 'crowd' of 983. The only time there's been a home attendance below 1,000 for a Hull first team fixture.

One that sticks in my mind was a 0-0 scoreless draw between Halifax and Hull in a Challenge cup semi at Headingley, 1987 or 88 I think. I'd never witnessed it before or since for that matter, at any level of the game.

If memory serves the replay was very low scoring as well with Fax winning by the odd point.

I think the score in the replay was 4-3. A Gary Pearce penalty and drop goal for Hull to a try for Halifax (Tony Anderson springs to mind).

London v Paris - 1996 the first game in Superleague .. and I will probably see the last at this rate :(

London v Wigan - 1996 on a saturday evening at the valley when London drew 10,014 - what have been ..... :(

London v Leeds - 1999 the last final at the old Wembley .

South Sydney v Sydney Roosters - 2002 First game back and first hiding for the Rabbitohs - Rusty doing the dirty over the starting bell.

Gold Coast Titans v St George - 2006 1st ever game for Gold Coast played at Suncorp.

OT - Is there a version of Soccers 92 Club for League fans ?

Saw 2 of the greatest tries scored at Wembley in 1994. Johnathan Davies' was enjoyed to the fullest. The Martin Offiah try wasn't greeted in the same manor as it destroyed our dreams that day. (missed Wembley 90/92 for GB & 99 for Leeds, ######)

Saw all 6 Invincible tests over here.

Was in Sydney for the 2002 debarcle, 64-10 GB defeat.

1998 Grand Final.

83,85, 86, 87 Wembley finals, all cliff hangers.

2004 Grand Final, finally winning the title after 32 years.

88/89 season decider between Widnes & Wigan

87 World Club Challenge

07/08/09 Back to back to back Grand Final

Surprised you missed off the Cas V London challenge cup semi in 1999. Now that was not only historic because London got to Wembley, but also one of THE best ever games. I always thought it was unfortunate that the Wembley chance came when the club were at the Stoop. I think a bigger impact would have resulted at Charlton in 1996 or even at Brentford.

World Cup Final 2000 (not exactly momentous but was a great experience as someone who didn't turn 14 until a month later but was allowed to go on the bus and tram to Old Trafford with my brother and some mates)

Last game at Knowsley Road

Last game at Hilton Park

First game at the LSV

All but one of Leigh's games in Super League (missed Hull away, the third time we played at the KC that season)

Possibly one of the last games at Wilderspool (there were that many!), Mark Hilton's testimonial vs Leigh only a month or two before the HJ opened

Not a great list, it has to be said!

Oldham v Australia 4/11/86 16-22

Oldham v Hull 28/12 80 2-1

Oh Lord I remember that 2-1 defeat! Bob Gaitley, our stand-in stand-off at the time, sold a dummy and with a clear run to the line chose to drop a goal!!! :O Thus extending our try famine for another 80 mins.

Historic memory for me. 1984 Wakefield v Hull at Belle Vue. Wally Lewis' first game for wakey & Peter Sterlings first for Hull. Half the Bradford Uni team went across to the game on the bus with me. Wally Lewis' first pass from the centre spot hit Stuart Vass on the wing! At that point I think most of the Hull fans thought "we've signed the wrong one!". Lewis tired, Sterling stamped his authority & Hull won in the end. Great day.

Another one that sticks in the memory for me is Halifax v Hull from a few years ago (2004?). As far as I know its the only game ever not to contain a single penalty in the whole 80mins. IIRC Bob Connolly was the ref.
