Leeds Rhinos vs Hull KR

I woke up on Sunday morning with the sun shining, a little tired after the Take That gig the night before, wondering what the days game between Leeds Rhinos and Hull KR would bring.  After the last 2 games I wasn’t confident at all.  I was sure that Rovers would do the double over us and had told everyone who I work with exactly the same thing.  This game had more than just 2 points at stake…there was office rivalries too. 🙂

On the way, things changed for the worse, the heavens opened and from that moment on, never stopped.  I felt for the away supporters who were standing in the west stand, luckily, being a Southstander, we’re under cover, apart from the occasional drip from the, soon to be updated, roof.

Once I heard the team news, I was a little shocked to see that all the players who had played in the Exiles game, 48 hours, before were there, when we have some strength in depth, like Burgess, Cross, Clarkson, Pitts & Ali.  Again, not for the first time this season, this was either going to be a brilliant decision or a diabolical one.

Rugby League

SuperLeague

Tonight is the start of a small rugby league marathon as I am going to see 2 live games of the greatest game in the world, rugby league, this weekend!  We more often than not go & see one as I am a massive Leeds Rhinos supporter, however, we have got some free tickets to go & watch the Hull FC v Bradford Bulls game today & some free tickets to go & watch the mighty Leeds vs Hull KR tomorrow.

Rugby is a large part of my life & has been for about 20 years now, being brought up in a house of sport due to my dad.  But hey, it makes me who I am, and there’s nothing I like more than to get out in the fresh air & let off the stresses of the week by shouting a few obscenities at a referee.  Ok, ok, that’s a little white lie, as if my mother heard me, I would definitely get a slap, so its normally things like, ‘Geremonside’ (all one word of course) or ‘Forward’ or if you’re my mum, ‘Cheating ratbags’.  It’s definitely a lot of fun & would advise you all to try at least one game & I’m sure you’d be hooked.
