Hull KR v Hull FC Preview
When it comes to stand out matches not just in the Super League but in world Rugby League, there are few bigger than the Hull derby.
In a city dominated by the sport, that gets ramped up even further as the Red and Whites welcome the Back and Whites across the river Hull from west to east for what is always a must watch occasion and for what is always an unpredictable game.
It is often said that when it comes to derbies, form goes out of the window and that is definitely the case when these 2 East Yorkshire sides meet each other as no matter what the form of either team or which players they have available or missing, both go into the game with the weight of expectation on them and that can create upsets just as it can dominant wins for the favourites.
During derby week, the match is all that is talked about in workplaces, schools and colleges across the city and with so many households split in their support of both clubs, the bragging rights on offer in this game is so much more than any other game and thankfully that is something that both teams fully understand and that is why the vast majority of these games are incredibly spectacles, full of must see moments and lots of great action.
New Craven Park, whilst going by a number of names down the year has now been the long term home of Hull KR since the late 1980’s but in many ways the new part of the grounds name is still relevant as it is a stadium that has continued to evolve down the years.
With 3 well developed sides and the bulk of the Hull KR fanbase down one side of the stadium, the ground is known for its great atmosphere but when it comes to derby day that gets ramped up, with fans singing from well before the game to well after the final whistle.
This is one game of the season when a sell-out is always on the cards and more often than not the unused 4th stand is open for extra fans to be allowed in.
