I'd much rather they don't come back. Still there's an awful lot of work for them to do if it does happen, their pack is as feeble as ever. Terrible game today - thrown away by Leigh and another quite dreadful refereeing performance by Smith.

They need us more than we need them. At the end of the day, if they come up then it's likely to be 4 or 6 free points on recent history.

No they don't, they need SL.

I'd guess that they've brought far more to our ground than we have to there's since DL began.

I don,t get certain people at times why would,nt you want the derbies,besides the financial benefits for both clubs, I would rather watch hull vs rovers with a big crowd at the kcom or caravan park than hull vs London or any other club that don,t bring any support to the game.You cannot beat the build to the game between the two sets of supporters to which is the biggest derby in super league.Just hope they would vary magic weekend a
bit more

Personally, I've always loved the Derbies. They add to the season and I enjoy the build up and day itself, especially Good Friday.

They are always memorable and most of us will still be able to discuss Derby incidents going back many years, more so than other league opposition.

There's also the financial benefit, with an additional 6-8,000 fans for a league fixture,, that's £100k+ to the club.

So if they win promotion, I'd welcome the return of the Derby

Not bothered either way, if they go up they deserve too, probably offer more to SL than Leigh, extra money and points come in handy too, hopefully if they do, we have just two derbies.

Apart from that, we now are on a different level to teams like Rovers, who is reality will always be scrapping for a 7th/8th position regularly, whilst we should be competing for the next few years, with the squad and set up we have on and off the field.

Which one?

Maybe Masoe, but he would have to be better than last time in SL.

My take on this subject is I've much preferred this season without Rovers in SL as there has been no bitterness and the ridiculous back biting from that side. I'm not bothered one way or the other if they come up or not.
If they do then I hope we don't have a pre season game as it's just too many games with them.
We have moved on as a club I feel the old days of the big crowd is no longer as big a factor as it used to be.
If I had to make a decision on whether I'd prefer them in SL or not, personally it would be not.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!
