  1. Just wake me up when they decide what they're doing. Cheers...
  2. I look at this and just think, 'yep, Rugby League'...
  3. Now I've said that they have just said an announcement is imminent on when we will return. Timing is everything ?
  4. Seems a strange time to ask for a release when you're playing and the SL doesn't have a restart date. Are we certain he is asking for a release?
  5. I think we should be careful what we wish for sometimes.
  6. Not a clue what is going on with Gigot but he has undoubted talent and I would be considering him at Rovers because we can't keep our full back fit.
  7. Get as much publicity out of this as you possibly can, Rugby League because it simply isn't happening. Nobody in their right mind let's Tyson get back in there. He was gone 15 years ago. It is OK looking good on the bags and pads but there are OAPs who look good on the bags and pads too. People who say Tyson will destroy SBW are wrong and are only saying it because it is Mike Tyson. Sport doesn't have or need to see this.
  8. If he is he is going the wrong way about it ? Only winning saves your job. He is just offering his opinion on a particular subject, I think.
  9. Terribly sad news. Jordan played for East Hull as a kid with my brother. We used to give him a lift home from training fairly often. One of my favourite memories was we had picked our kid up from East Park one winter after training (maybe u13s) and as we started to drive home we saw Coxy stood at the bus stop completely caked in mud, with that massive grin on his face. So we pull up and said, what are you doing, Coxy? Look at the state of you. He goes, I'm just getting the bus home. He didn't even have a bag for his boots he was just holding them in his hands. Well we just laughed and told him to jump in because there wasn't a bus driver on earth that would have let him on. He used to try and convince me that if it wasn't for Rugby League he'd be a Dolce & Gabanna model. He once had an operation after falling ill during a game and when he was well enough me and my mate (we all sponsored Jordan at the time as he had just broken through at Rovers) went round to see him. He had this little dog and he bloody loved it. At Rovers events I always ended up on the same table as him somehow and we used to laugh and joke about different stuff. Some of his team mates used to say he looked like a horse so it came as no surprise when Ben Fisher wandered up one time and put a bowl of sugar cubes in front of him haha. I don't generally use social media or forums to express my feelings when someone I know has passed away but I will make an exception here. He was a big daft lad with a smile wider than the Humber, and an infectious personality. He was a good kid. A really good kid. He never really changed from that lad we picked up at the bus stop all those years ago. Rest easy, old friend.
  10. I will check that out, thanks very much.
  11. Hi everyone, I am (perhaps ambitiously) trying to locate as much footage from Hull KR's 2007 season as I can to help me with a lockdown-relieving project I'm looking at starting (because I am bored as hell) and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. Does anyone know where I can get hold of any DVDs and/or links to full-length games that I could use? Naturally I enquired with the club first but as 2007 is very much pre-KRTV, they tried but couldn't assist. I am particularly interested in our maiden SL home and away victories, going top for the first time after defeating Leeds, the Wigan away wins, Magic, Paul Cooke's first game, 42-6, and the defeat of Salford at the Willows. It is a big ask I know but thank you very much in advance.
  12. Probably more to do with Sky and filling the extra game slots to satisfy the contract.
  13. Some may recall that a couple of Hull KR fans set up a just giving page with the intention to raise money to sign a player, which was, perhaps unsurprisingly, met with sarcastic abuse from a good number of the unwashed from across river. Well not any more... https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/Hull-FC?utm_term=zEzzRz4a2 Joking aside, this is a worry for the game if Hull are struggling financially. I think it is fair to say Hull are considered one of the stronger clubs and it doesn't fill you with confidence moving forward.
  14. I think a lot of people forget Roger Millward played for Cronulla...
  15. I didn't even realise it was April...
