Born Aylesbury

Lived most of life in Hull

Used to support Hull FC, but now I would consider this a grudging affilliation. I support the game and dislike most teams. :-D

Born in Barrow

Raised in Coventry ( via Doncaster)

Supported Barrow all my life but was a founder of Coventry Bears........

And now next Sunday I have the dilemma of watching my boyhood heroes playing the club that I helped nurture.

So for the first time in my life I won't mind if Barrow lose. ( I can't tell you how odd that seems to me, my Sister now thinks I'm the black sheep of the family)

Born: Merton

Raised: Maidenhead

Introduced to RL: York

Live: Upper Moutere, NZ

Support: London Broncos, NZ Warriors and above all International RL.

And in thirteen years of SH living I have watched one (1) SOO game live on TV.

It isn't the RL messiah...it's a boring local conflict.

A Scouser supporting Hull? My guess is ex Hull uni student who regularly frequented the watering holes of Beverley Rerd.

Born In Crewe

Moved to Warrington 12 years ago

 

Got into RL about 25 years ago, which led to me having a season ticket at Wilderspool, where I met my Warrington mad wife. I'd class myself as a RL supporter - love watching any form of the game from anywhere in the world.

Born and live in Northern Ireland.

Fell in love with the game through watching it on sky.

Never played or watched a game live. Finishing uni as we speak, so hopefully will do both in the near future.

Really is no other sport like it.

Yes it is Ullman.  The Mainbrace used to be my local in the 1980s, I used to live right behind it.  We had some late nights in there when Hull had won a big game.

 

Deluded Pom, you're right too.  I turned up in Hull in 1980 as an 18 year old nowing next to nothing about RL.  As it turned out one thing I did know about was timing.
