My first rugby post from my new website
Roll on the Road to Wembley, that’s what I say. I just can’t stop myself getting excited about the prospect of another trip to Wembley. Last year was a whole host of emotions all in one day…I was so excited going back after 11 years that I just got swept away with the magic of the occasion, the walk up Wembley way to see that most amazing new stadium. I missed the Twin Towers if I was honest, but the new version is just so spectacular.
The game itself was so disappointing, I had no idea how to feel. I was devastated, that *that* could happen to us. I was so sure we’d put up a fight but hey ho, it wasn’t to be. Like a Twitter Friend said to me, ‘I’m not sure I’m ready for more cup final heartache yet! Not got over last season yet!’ This is exactly what I feel, but surely it can’t be like that again, can it?
We go into the weekend with so much positivity after a fantastic Easter/Bank Holiday break (3 wins out of 3), that I actually beleive that we do this thing. It is annoying that we are in the only all Super League clash but I guess you have to beat them all to get there (something we did in 1999) Sorry to hear that Kallum Watkins is out for 12 weeks, which is a shame after he’d just come back from injury, but hopefully this won’t be too much of a blow to us. For more information from the club, read this post.
For all that are going to a game this weekend, I hope you enjoy yourself. If you are Sky Plus’ing the game on Saturday, just a word of warning the 1st half is on BBC1 & the 2nd half is on BBC2!
