Just for Deano (sorry mate) - about time we saw Chris Green again....

Hull FC coach Peter Gentle has recalled Aaron Heremaia and Danny Tickle to his squad for the trip to London Broncos on Saturday.

Former New Zealand international hooker Heremaia missed his side’s defeat to league leaders Huddersfield Giants with a rib injury last weekend but returns to Gentle’s 19-man party for the clash at The Stoop along with Tickle, who has now served his one-match suspension for punching.

The duo take the place of props Chris Green and Jay Pitts in the Black and Whites squad for the game, while Jason Crookes and Paul Johnson will also be for selection having missed out at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Reading the posts on here, I feel I have to comment.. Peter you are right and the die hards have to be the back bone of the supporters and the club but even this die hard has to draw a line somewhere., since inception I have bought season tickets, shirts, etc season in, season out and even though I'm not one of the 'choir' I love this club and the wasps before that and would hate for anything to happen to it, but the reality is it costs me nearly £65 in fuel and entrance just for a home game, never mind the away trips and with the drivel served up last weekend it really does make me question the costs I'm making as well as my dad.. To me the best gesture the lads can do (as clearly they'll not pay my petrol!!) is to pull their socks up, get some fire in their bellies and fight for the club and play with as much consistency as they can and if they have to lose, then go down fighting.. Apologies if this doesn't make a lot of sense, I'm just writing from the heart..

One (very small) thing I've noticed is that we no longer 'whey' after each players name as they are read out on the teamsheet.

Also, does anyone else think that having Norris there doesn't actually add anything? The majority of people I see at the rugby are 50-60 year old men and sometimes I feel it's just cringy when he comes out. "Please make a huge noise for Norris the Knight!" silence... Just my opinion of course.

Hopefully those 50-60 year old blokes will start bringing their children/grandchildren back to games so Norris has someone to have a bit of fun with!

General thought, see Barrow got a really good bonus point at Leigh last night,

just shows how hard this league is going to be.

Don't really want to harp back to Keighley, but as Marchy said, they may have been

bottom, but 4 of their 6 games before Sunday were against Batley, Fev, Fax & Sheffield

so maybe not suprising & maybe not the true picture of how the Cougars were performing.

Dont think the Knights fans are concerned how Keighley are playing, but how bad we are playing away from home.

Fair point, only thing to add is we were not bad at Whitehaven & Sheffield, but people who were

not at those games say we were?? - agree Batley was fairly poor (even allowing for all the

injuries that day), but Keighley was not acceptable.

Quite. V.Q. have you seen Gary's last post re the free bus? If you and your dad can make it down to the stadium you can have a free bus ride and enjoy the company of the barmy army. With all the dosh you have forked out over the years maybe you should also get a V.I.P. pass into the Keepmoat!!

Thanks for that Spanish. He never made into our first team and got released by us very quickly so I can't comment because I've never seen him play. Hopefully he will do a job for you guys.
