They don't run with a ball anymore either.

Disappointing. I remember seeing the inaugural one at Robin Park in 2003ish - the place was full hours before the race took place, so we watched it from one of the DW car parks across the river from the athletics track with several hundred others to give some support to Damian Munro running for Leigh. He'd have had a decent shot at beating eventual winner Darren Albert had he not knocked on after about 10m :lol:

Tom Lineham is the quickest player at Hull - the commentator even said he was his favourite to win the race, dont know why he didnt feature

Going on what I have heard from the HKR pre-season camps the past two years, Sam Latus is up there with the quickest when doing sprint testing however it is unusual that they test over 100mtrs usually 20 and 40 sometimes 60 due to 100 being unrealistic except for maybe the odd winger interception.

Not sure about the young lads not seen enough of them to know who's rapid or not. Dave Hodgson certainly isn't anywhere near, got ran down the other week after about 30yrds and he was practically clear when he set off. Even though Welham has finished plenty of distance tries he's nowhere near in this event IMO. Think with confidence Jake Webster would push over the first 50 but would drop off at the back end.
We're coming to make some noise!
