Re: Hybrid next season

I see what Pete means. It's not "entitlement" it's just reality. And Lo, not all fans are owners, they may know about the ownership structure and agree to it's principles, they lob a bit extra into the 50/50 draw and suchlike but that doesn't make them owners and it doesn't make their ongoing suppo...

Re: Retained list

That would be a great signing for central midfield, something different to Moke, Rose. I think Lowe's based in Wigan and obviously he's been on a full-time deal at Shields. The player that the Shields fans seem most disappointed to see released is Danny Rose's brother Mitch. Sounds quite versatile ...

Re: Rugby League

You'll struggle to get a decent replacement for Tony Smith, especially if your CEO is pulling all the strings. Do you think Tony Smith will look for another job in RL or do you think he'll retire? He has said he has loved being at KR and it has really "reinvigorated" him. He also loves the city. I ...

If you take any sides top 5 or 6 players out of their side and they won't look anywhere near as good. Hopefully Hull KR will become stronger and take that next step. Any idea who will be replacing Tony Smith? The wrong man is leaving. This is the first time since he took the club over the club I ha...

Re: Rugby League

And so it proved, a pretty one sided game. The Wigan game was a thriller and we just got over the line. As I've said before Hull KR have a strong starting 13, but when they lose key players the replacements are not so strong. I'd expect Wigan to start as strong favorites to win the final. An amazin...

Massive games today in the Challenge Cup semi finals. I was hoping to go to Headingley, but unfortunately I have to work all day. I'll watch the games as live later on today. There is the prospect of a Wigan v Hull KR final. Sadly our injury situation makes us very much second-favourites v Udders.

Sure I read somewhere that you can not move ground just to gain a promotion.

Re: The Hodgy team of 99/00 - if they had been promoted

It’s always extraordinary to think that team didn’t get promotion. Even with the poor run-in, if we’d only drawn with Northampton at home in April rather than lose (1-0 courtesy of a former Hanger, IIRC) we’d have been promoted. It would have all collapsed the following season, mind. I have always ...
