HEAD COACH’S NOTES

Brett Hodgson

Hull FC Head Coach Brett Hodgson contributes his final programme notes of the 2022 season…

ood afternoon and

welcome back to the

G

MKM Stadium for the

final time in 2022 as we host Hull

KR in Round 27 of the Betfred

Super League.

We enjoyed a solid victory

over Toulouse Olympique last

time out, helped by a spirited

effort from our young cohort

of players, who have handled

themselves impeccably over

a tricky period for the club.

The likes of Davy Litten,

Harvey Barron, Will Gardiner,

Matty Laidlaw and Denive

Balmforth all contributed

performances to be proud

of, and it gives supporters a

glimpse of the youth talent on

offer at Hull FC at present.

A triumph in the Hull

Derby today would see us

end the 2022 campaign

with back-to-back wins.

More importantly, it would

reward our passionate

supporters with the city

bragging rights throughout

the off-season.

During my time at the club,

the Black & White supporters

have been outstanding and I

want to personally thank all

of the fans that have stood

by our side through a tough

couple of months at the

end of this season. As I say,

I hope that we can reward

your loyalty with another

win against Hull KR today.

Just as important as your

support is going to be today,

we will need you there in strong

numbers for our 2023 campaign.

Whilst our full focus is on

today’s game, it’s hard not to

be excited by next season with

some entertaining new recruits

joining the club, whilst we also

look forward to welcoming

some of our sidelined players

back to action. We need to find

the key to keeping the majority

of our players on the field in

2023, and that is something we

will be working extremely hard

towards during the off-season.

“Whilst our full focus

is on today’s game, it’s

hard not to be excited

by next season with

some entertaining new

recruits joining the club”

We will, however, venture

forwards into 2023 after

today’s game without a

number of players, who will be

moving onto the next chapter

of their careers at the end of

the campaign. I would like to

take the opportunity to thank

those individuals for their

efforts and I am sure you will

all show your appreciation from

the stands this afternoon.

I’m sure you don’t need

me to tell you to enjoy the

game this afternoon, as

there is no extra motivation

required for a Hull Derby.

Thank you once again

for your support.

he 22-year-old has put pen to paper

to sign an initial one-year contract

T

extension with the Black & Whites,

whilst the club holds the option to extend

Scott’s deal by a further 12 months until

the end of the 2024 Betfred Super League

campaign.

Scott, who joined the club as a 17-yearold

back in 2017, has made good progress

with the Black & Whites since graduating

from the Academy, having made just

shy of 40 first-grade appearances for

FC since his senior debut in 2018.

Having set ambitious personal targets

for 2022, frustratingly, Scott suffered

a serious injury in the same game he

scored a brace against Salford Red

Devils in Round 3. He was then dealt

another two-month setback shortly

after making his return to action.

But Scott offered plenty of promise

with an industrious performance in his

comeback appearance against Toulouse

on Sunday, making 187 metres from

17 carries against the French outfit to

help his side onto a 38-12 victory.

He’s now looking to push onto the next

level for the Black & Whites, offering

pace and athleticism in the centres.

Speaking to hullfc.com about his

contract extension, Scott said: “I’m

absolutely delighted. For me, it just felt

like the right decision for me to stay here.

“It’s not been the best year with a couple

of injuries keeping me out of action, but

I’m back now and I feel like I’m in such a

good place both mentally and physically.

“The contract extension gives me a

chance to put this year aside and really

get excited about what’s to come in 2023.

“I think my hard work and

professionalism off the field showed

on the pitch when I got back out there

on Sunday. I’m happy with how that

performance went, but I put it down to

the hard work that’s been done behind

the scenes over the last few months.”

The young centre will be hoping to

spur the Black & Whites onto a seasonending

Derby victory against Hull KR this

Saturday, before turning his attention

to an important 2023 campaign.

Having only featured in one Derby

on home soil prior to today’s meeting,

Scott is relishing the opportunity

to feature against the Robins.

“I’m really looking forward to it now.

I’ve only been able to play in a couple

of Derbies, and only one at home.

“Everyone in this city knows what

HULL FC v HULL KR 09

the Derby means, so to have this as our

last game of the season is a fantastic

opportunity for us to sign out in 2022 in style.

“We’re all disappointed that we’ve

ended up in this position this year. It’s not

where we wanted to finish the season,

but rest assured all of the boys have been

working hard this week to make sure

we finish on a high note in the Derby.

“I’m looking forward to putting my

best foot forward and getting out

there with the boys again. Hopefully

I can help the boys get the win.”

OPPOSITION IN FOCUS

Hull KR

The 18th Man casts an eye over the history of today’s opponents, Hull KR...

Major Honours...

CHAMPIONSHIPS: 1923, 1925, 1979, 1984, 1985

CHALLENGE CUPS: 1980

Background...

stablished just shy of two decades of their West

Hull neighbours in 1982, Hull KR actually started

E

out on this side of the river and were based in

several locations, including Anlaby Road. Towards the

end of the 19th century, the Robins switched to what is

now known as their traditional side of the city on the

East side of the river. Throughout the 20th century, Hull

KR went on to enjoy five Championship titles, as well as

a Challenge Cup triumph in 1980. But without a major

trophy since 1985, Robins supporters are thirsty for

success, especially having come so close to reaching the

Grand Final last season. Next season, Willie Peters will

take over as Head Coach, looking to guide the Robins to

their first piece of major silverware in almost 40 years.

OPPOSITION IN FOCUS

The Key Men

The Black & Whites will be on alert to these three key dangermen

in the Hull KR side this afternoon…

Ryan HALL

Elliot MINCHELLA

Ethan RYAN

5 LAST

DATE OF BIRTH: 27/11/87

POSITION: WING

CLUB: SYDNEY ROOSTERS

17 LAST

DATE OF BIRTH: 28/01/96

POSITION: LOOSE FORWARD

CLUB: BRADFORD BULLS

23 LAST

DATE OF BIRTH: 12/05/96

POSITION: WING

CLUB: BRADFORD BULLS

One of Super League’s most

recognisable wingers from the

modern era, Ryan Hall may be in

the twilight years of his career,

but he certainly still knows his

way around a rugby field. Whilst

he’s endured a disrupted season

through injury, Hall has still

posted a return of over 10 tries

this season, including his score to

break the deadlock in the Good

Friday Derby between these two

sides at Sewell Group Craven

Park. The powerhouse winger is

a key asset for the Robins out

of back-field and he is a deadly

finisher, too.

Normally used in the KR side as a

loose forward, Elliot Minchella’s

ball-playing capabilities were

called upon as the 26-yearold

featured in the halves for

the Robins against Wigan on

Monday. He joined the East

Hull club from Bradford Bulls

ahead of the 2020 Super League

campaign and he has become

one of the key players at Sewell

Group Craven Park, with energy

and enthusiasm in abundance.

With Danny McGuire’s side still

without several key personnel

this afternoon, Minchella may

well be required to play at

halfback again, which could

take a key player out of the pack

battle.

Ethan Ryan followed in the

footsteps of Minchella to Sewell

Group Craven Park, swapping

Bradford Bulls for the Robins

ahead of the 2020 season. Also

like Minchella, Danny McGuire

has moved Ryan from the

wing to fullback, where he has

experience of playing at Odsal.

With a quick turn of pace, he’ll

be a dangerous option out the

back for the Robins, just as he

demonstrated with a two-try

haul in KR’s 38-28 victory over

Wigan Warriors on Monday

afternoon.

HULL FC v HULL KR 17

JAKE CONNOR

JAKE CONNOR

The 18th Man caught up with Jake Connor, a player

who always relishes Derby Day…

ith 37 try involvements in Super League this

season, expect Jake Connor to be involved

W

in some of the key moments for the Black &

Whites this afternoon.

The fullback claimed another three assists in FC’s

38-12 victory over Toulouse Olympique here just

six days ago, and he will be keen to push himself

further on against the Black & Whites’ arch rivals

today.

A win for Hull FC today would see them finish the

2022 campaign above the Robins. Although a playoff

place is out of the question for both sides, the

Black & Whites fans would savour the opportunity

to end the season above Hull KR, taking both the

Clive Sullivan Trophy and the bragging rights into

the close-season.

But looking ahead to the game, Connor remains

disappointed with Hull’s second-half of the season,

although remains focused on ending the year on a

positive note.

“The season hasn’t panned out how we hoped,

but finishing the season with a big match like the

Derby gives us the chance to finish the season on

a real high and go into the off-season on a positive

note,” Connor told The 18th Man.

“We want to go out on a high – the fans deserve

that for their support this season, and there’s no

better way to do it than with a big effort against

those on the other side of the river.”

And Hull FC’s influential fullback, who will be

looking to add to his tally of 33 assists this season

with some more magic moments on Saturday,

explained his love for the battle against FC’s crosscity

rivals.

“I love these games – I always get up for them

and I really love the atmosphere and I can’t wait for

Saturday to roll around now.

“My favourite Derby during my time at the club

would be a toss up between our win at Craven Park

in 2018 with twelve men for seventy minutes and I

give the hand gesture to the East Stand.”

“We want to go out on a high – the

fans deserve that for their support

this season, and there’s no better way

to do it than with a big effort against

those on the other side of the river.”


HULL FC v HULL KR 19

CLIVE SULLIVAN

THE MUTUAL

CONNECTION

Hull FC Club Historian Bill Dalton reflects

on the long history of the nomadic

movement of players between the Black &

Whites and Hull KR

ong before the Northern Union was

established, and cash-enabled transfers

L

of players became the norm, it was a

regular feature that KR players, among others,

were occasionally invited to turn out for the

Black & Whites.

Of course, until the creation of the motorway

network, both clubs suffered to a large extent

from the reluctance of players to transfer

to the city from other parts of the country,

so it was commonplace for players to cross

the city, as it was equally unattractive for

many of them to venture further afield.

Even in the present Super League era,

we have seen a fairly large number of ex-

Hull FC players in the Robins’ ranks and

vice-versa. At present, Rovers boast ex-Hull

players Ben Crooks, Jordan Abdull, Jez Litten

and Dean Hadley among their squad.

I calculate that there are as many as 132

players who have donned both the Black &

White and Red & White in Rugby League days.

It is probably true to say that Hull KR have

benefitted more over the century in the

subsequent contribution to their cause than

Hull have, when one can cite examples like Clive

Sullivan, Bob Coverdale, Jim Drake, Len Casey

and, currently, Jordan Abdull and Jez Litten.

Nevertheless, Hull had great service from

George Bateman, who landed at The Boulevard as

a result of the oversight of the Rovers secretariat

failing to register him on their retained list in 1930,

and more latterly from Scott Taylor, who arrived

at Hull via Wigan, Liam Watts and Albert Kelly.

There are some seven Players who have

registered a century of appearances for

both clubs, viz: George Bateman, Bob

SCOTT TAYLOR

Coverdale, Clive Sullivan, Len Casey, Mike

Dixon, Shaun Briscoe and Graeme Horne.

Of course, Clive Sullivan achieved immortality

with both clubs, being the only player to have

scored a century of tries for both clubs and also

representing both in Challenge Cup glory.

Prior to today’s contest, there have

been a total of 668 players to have

represented Hull in competitive Derby

matches, and 702 for the Robins…
