Mahe Fonua relegated to 18th man for disciplinary reasons, summat to do with breaking Covid protocols I think.

England RU Coach Eddie Jones : "I spent a bit of time up at Hull and I like the full back there Connor, he's a tough, skilful player"

Jake Connor : "I've never played Union, it doesn't look that hard, you never say never but it looks too boring for me"

Agree, Rovers with half a team missing - and all in key positions - will struggle even against Hull I think 


Their cynical manipulation of the COVID protocols has been impressive too. But then it is their Cup Final tomorrow eh, bless ‘em 🤣🤣🤣🤣

In all seriousness what makes this game exciting is that it's neither teams cup final. And what I mean by that is that for the first time in a long time both teams have genuine aspirations of perhaps of going deep in the playoffs. This game is very important in the playoff race, Hull probably can't afford to lose for that reason. But both sides are looking beyond this game and it's exciting to be having a Derby between 2 good teams for a change.

I don't know if it's just my bias but I can't really see where this "Hull are the underdogs" rhetoric is coming from. If we play to our ability we win handily. The bookies have Hull as favourites.
