Lucky sods...

Friday 13th? Eurgh. Went to see first game in Hull FC's Super League XIV campaign tonight, a tough contest against Wigan. Hull were, I thought, outstanding and, despite the ref's attempts to ruin the game, it was a superb, ding-dong, 80 minutes, with the auld black and whites running out 18-12 winners. Top four finish is on the cards, surely, he said, perhaps a little too early in the season to be taken seriously. But remember where you read it first. It was blinking cold - a good excuse to buy a new, retro, Hull FC hat from the club shop (I also, very stupidly, left my gloves at home, despite laying them out in readiness several hours before kick-off) and we made the KC's playing surface look like a rugby pitch, rather than that poncy bowling green the Tigers like to play their Premier League footie on.
