    Mainly did Headingley while I was there, and ended up going into the Leeds centre around midnight, when I could have been in Quebec for all I knew.

    I'd concur, but for the fact that I know you're talking about Hull, so I agree with Corrin, worst post.

    Haha; I actually wasn't talking about Hull this time. Not exclusively, anyway.

    My only real experience of people from Hull was when I went to watch the old Blackpool Borough RL club play Hull at Borough Park in around 1980 - in those days there were two divisions and the gulf between them was enormous - for some reason I can no longer recall Hull had contrived to get relegated the year before and were miles ahead in the second division when they came to Blackpool - they brought about 1,500 fans - there were only about 100 Borough fans and we always stood in the same place and the 1,500, most of them big, mean looking bastards with huge tattoos, decided they wanted to stand there too - the police presence was about two iirc

    Inexplicably Borough, who probably hadn't won more than a couple of games all season, managed to raise their game and it wasn't until Hull got a last minute try that they managed to sneak a win - their fans were absolutely furious with them but despite all appearances were fantastic company and they got even better when a handful of other Yorkies wandered up and admitted to being Hull KR supporters

    The best bit was right at the end when my mate Des decided to give the ref a broadside for not spotting an infringement with the winning try - he had a loud voice and was really giving him some stick about his eyesight and gesticulating at him - as they all trooped off the ref suddenly ran over towards him and screamed at him "its good enough to see you clearly enough son now do you want to ****ing say yer sorry or do I have to come in there and sort yer out"

    "Sorry Billy" piped up Des as he nipped in between the two biggest Hull supporters he could find - instantly they lifted him up and shouted "Here y'are Billy - we'll hold him for yer" - the most amusing bit was that Des, not a very tall lad, still had his little legs pumping as they hoisted him about two feet in the air, just like you'd see in a Tom and Jerry cartoon - even "Billy" had to dissolve into fits of laughter at that
