PLAYING WITH A SMILE ON YOUR FACE!!!!!
Frank Pritchard is ‘Box Office’ The smiling started with him, spread to the rest of the Polynesian brotherhood and by three quarter time it was everywhere across the terraces except of course at the north end. 60-20, what can you say really???
Well, I guess you can start with, “It was only a friendly!!” but then again I have to say, in fear of getting shot down straight away, something special did happen between about 2-10 and 3-30 yesterday. Ok, we started a bit ‘ring-rusty’ as Rovers game time last week showed through and we finished somewhat in disarray through too many substitutions and players playing out of position, but in between it was just a great show of power rugby. There were some marvellous performances and all that with Talanoa and Ellis still to come back!!
I am its fair to say, very pleased that one is out of the way without any major injuries and we can now look and work towards the first game of the 2016 Super League season in just 11 days time. We can as well, do it safe in the knowledge that although we won’t win every game, there’s a very good chance that for the first time in ages, were going to be bloody entertained. The whole game yesterday was played in a carnival atmosphere that started on the field and spread throughout the stadium.
The Hull Daily Mail headline on Friday read, ‘Scott Taylor: There’s something special bubbling at Hull FC’ and after that showing, any of you who were there yesterday will find that hard to argue with!
