Asked for this in a bar in North East Crete. He then asks about London Wasps! €6 a litre of white so not all bad.

Is the official the most entertaining thing on view?

Job done from a Hull point of view, although we have gotten very sloppy in the last 15 minutes. Often when games are so one sided teams fall into the trap of thinking they can just score on every play and stop doing the things that they need to do. That has happened a bit here.

Hoping to see us reset, forget about the score and just get down to playing some good rugby in the second half.

Should have gone to North West Crete, always get the Rugby on there when myself and Tony XIII have a meet up.

Great choice of game.

Especially when, for once, Super League is on Main Event channel.

And they wonder why they struggle with TV deals.

I'm a Broncos season ticket holder and I turned it off after 10 mins and watched the cricket highlights for the 3rd time.

Rugby League is a tough game for teams to stop momentum. It is a very unforgiving sport.

But London have massively exceed expectations this year so I am not getting too down on them... I am enjoying some of the play FC have turned on here.

It's almost like London's team is worth less than half as much as Hulls.

I understand that they want to showcase what is a very exciting relegation battle, but in hindsight it does seem a very poor choice.

They are damned if they do and damned if they don't though. What if London had caused another shock and won a classic?

Well, other than Catalans, which is effectively cheap as SKY don't produce it, I wouldn't;t have shown any Broncos away games, especially as Ward has rested players against the big teams all season.

At home they are more competitive and there is more chance of a shock.

If that meant less Broncos games, then fair enough.

It's almost as if we don't know how the games will turn out before they start.

All of Hull's early intensity has disappeared. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we don't score a point in the second half.

London are in this game.

If they score again in the next 5 minutes or so we will start panicking. The cue is on the rack.

Dross from Hull this second half.

We never seem to be good at keeping the foot on the throat. When we have games in the bag early they inevitably end up like this.

Switching back on 3/4 of the way through a game can sometimes prove difficult.

Phil Clarke is right, I have been banging on about that for years at conversions.

Well well well. Fair play, London have come out fighting this half at least. Hull's inconsistency rearing its ugly head again

Agree, it is disgusting that teams know they can just break the rules with no consequences.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

It's almost a case of it being too easy early on I think. If London had competed a bit better earlier on and made us work a bit harder we probably wouldn't have seen this. But when you go in at half time knowing the game is over and suddenly the other team start really getting stuck in it's really hard to pick yourselves up again.

Well at least we got that point.

It’s a bad habit London seem to have picked up by only turning up at halftime. Need to knock that on the head if they are to stand any chance of staying up.
