The North West, what position are we in from your point of view, is

:00:03.:00:07.

there something we can go away going, yeah, we should be positive,

:00:07.:00:11.

no matter what? We have a great heritage. A will the of businesses

:00:11.:00:15.

started in the north west. If you are pro-active and focused and you

:00:15.:00:20.

can see opportunities, there are, there are success stories out there.

:00:20.:00:24.

Businesses can grow. Businesses can develop. It -- it will have to be

:00:24.:00:30.

exports. That is where we will end it. Brian, Luke, Coral, anybody in

:00:30.:00:33.

our film, thank you very much. Thank you all for coming. Straw

:00:33.:00:39.

poll at the end. How many of you feel more positive? Anybody more

:00:39.:00:46.

optimistic now than they were at the beginning? You are waivering.

:00:46.:00:51.

There are fewer of you optimistic now. Right, OK. Thank you so much

:00:51.:00:55.

for all of you being here. The Budget is this week. We will be

:00:55.:00:58.

waiting with bated breath to see what George Osborne has to deliver.

:00:59.:01:04.

You can follow any of those developments across the BBC on

:01:04.:01:07.

North West Tonight and your BBC radio stations and online. From all

:01:07.:01:11.

of us here, at the Museum of Science and Industry, many, many

:01:11.:01:21.
:01:21.:01:21.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 120 seconds

:01:21.:03:21.

We had more than 750 points scored in Super League on Friday, Saturday

:03:22.:03:25.

and Sunday but it was the news that broke this morning that will be the

:03:25.:03:29.

big talking point of the next few days. Royce Simmons is no longer

:03:29.:03:33.

the coach of St Helens. The Australian has left the club after

:03:33.:03:37.

four straight Super League defeats. Joining me in studio are Richard

:03:37.:03:40.

Mathers of Wakefield and the former Bradford and Wigan coach, Brian

:03:40.:03:50.
:03:50.:03:50.

Noble. A surprise? A bit of a shock

:03:50.:03:54.

actually because once there was four defeats, they had been pretty

:03:54.:03:59.

close and it is disappointing when somebody loses their job like that.

:03:59.:04:09.

A great guy and unfortunately he has had to move on. It is a shock.

:04:09.:04:14.

It is cut throat but I suppose at club of St Helens stature demands

:04:14.:04:20.

results and they have that brand new stadium. They have lost some

:04:20.:04:27.

key personnel and that is a big transition itself. It was a

:04:27.:04:31.

surprise when the news came through that it is a bigger club. It is

:04:31.:04:36.

just one point in the last five games they have had, was the

:04:36.:04:40.

unlucky because some of those defeats were pretty close? When you

:04:40.:04:44.

look at St Helens and the expectancies, is high to say the

:04:44.:04:48.

least. They have been at the club over the last 15 years, they have

:04:48.:04:54.

been to so many finals and won so many trophies. You know that the

:04:54.:04:59.

pressure will be so high for obvious reasons, that they want to

:04:59.:05:03.

win things. When you get on the back of a run, you've got to have

:05:03.:05:06.

some answers and a way out of that trouble otherwise the consequences

:05:06.:05:14.

are a lot higher. The chairman said that he looks ahead to the next

:05:14.:05:17.

three fixtures and he felt the change had to be made before those

:05:17.:05:22.

big games. They are massive gains in the context of any season but on

:05:22.:05:27.

the back of this, is a big responsibility for Kieran

:05:27.:05:32.

Cunningham. They will take that on board. They have been there a long

:05:32.:05:36.

time and they know the fabric of the club and they would get the

:05:36.:05:39.

players onside and there is no better way to turn it around

:05:39.:05:43.

against Leeds on Sunday. So the final act of Royce Simmons'

:05:43.:05:47.

reign was at Bradford on Saturday. The Bulls themselves were looking

:05:47.:05:51.

for their first home win of the season but with Saints having lost

:05:51.:06:01.
:06:01.:06:14.

the last three, all eyes were on It is still alive, there still an

:06:14.:06:23.

opportunity here. Oh my word! With the conversion attempt for

:06:23.:06:33.
:06:33.:06:38.

breathing space - can you believe And he scores! Saints are stunned.

:06:38.:06:41.

St Helens looking for a return to form tonight but they will have to

:06:41.:06:51.

do that without too influential players. Bradford is picking up

:06:51.:07:01.
:07:01.:07:01.

some good momentum after a series of good performances.

:07:01.:07:11.
:07:11.:07:21.

Tonight, some heavy weather, the Bradford Bulls. He might have got

:07:21.:07:30.

in for the first score of the night. The referee wants a second look. He

:07:30.:07:36.

is short, he is short and you can see a very obvious double movement

:07:36.:07:40.

there are so there should be no trial and it is confirmed as such.

:07:40.:07:50.
:07:50.:07:53.

It is a penalty for St Helens. That look like a forward pass but the

:07:53.:08:02.

referee was right there. Shooting of the first defender but not the

:08:02.:08:08.

second and third. Bradford are at sixes and sevens. Since will score

:08:08.:08:14.

the opening try of the night. Touchdown in the end by Andrew

:08:14.:08:20.

Dixon. It could have been any one of four. Fans felt there was a

:08:20.:08:30.
:08:30.:08:31.

forward pass in the build-up. It certainly looked forward. A finish

:08:31.:08:36.

here by Andrew Dickson but it has left a bad taste in the minds of

:08:36.:08:46.
:08:46.:08:50.

the supporters. Kicked on, it is why Ted! He has

:08:50.:08:59.

got a bang to the head. The try is concerned. How many times have we

:08:59.:09:06.

seen this? Then Jeffrey's kick setting up a try. There was a kick

:09:06.:09:10.

in the head of from Foster. That has attracted the attention of the

:09:10.:09:18.

referee. That looked at reckless, more than intentional, but a

:09:18.:09:28.
:09:28.:09:31.

penalty try has been given. The referee has decided that that was

:09:31.:09:38.

reckless and the pair of the given. Another two from under the post.

:09:38.:09:48.
:09:48.:10:05.

Bradford lead 8-4 in a very stodgy He scores! Foster will hang his

:10:06.:10:14.

head here. He thought he was going out of play. He lets it bounce.

:10:14.:10:22.

Carol Price takes it up and scores. Foster is furious with himself. The

:10:22.:10:32.
:10:32.:10:41.

Bradford bench can see the funny side. It has been dropped. It is a

:10:41.:10:51.
:10:51.:10:51.

penalty. The referee is indicating a yellow card for faster. Offside,

:10:51.:10:59.

the referee he says. A penalty maybe but sin binning him? That

:10:59.:11:09.
:11:09.:11:10.

seems a little harsh. It certainly has not been forced to's night. --

:11:10.:11:20.
:11:20.:11:30.

Foster's night. It has raised the ire of others on the pitch. He was

:11:30.:11:40.
:11:40.:11:41.

very laid bare. And very late. He seems puzzled by why he has been

:11:41.:11:47.

penalised but that is why, he is lucky to stay on the field. Foster

:11:47.:11:57.
:11:57.:12:07.

is back on the from the bin. Tony has dropped its claim. Maybe the

:12:07.:12:17.
:12:17.:12:25.

last hope for since has disappeared. Only seconds remaining now. It may

:12:25.:12:31.

only be a consolation try but a very good at touchdown. Too late to

:12:31.:12:37.

count in terms of turning the game around, surely. St Helens, at least,

:12:37.:12:43.

can have an smile on their face at the last memory of this game, even

:12:43.:12:47.

if the other 79 minutes have been grim. Despite that score, it is

:12:47.:12:57.
:12:57.:13:03.

An oddly disjointed performance? was probably a performance that

:13:03.:13:10.

lacked a little bit of confidence. It is great when you have it. When

:13:10.:13:14.

it is not quite there, there's an element of anxiety and it can

:13:14.:13:18.

change the shape of what you look like and do. There were some

:13:18.:13:22.

instances when people were running on the tackle when the normally

:13:22.:13:25.

wouldn't and that is the element of pressure that comes from a high

:13:25.:13:35.

performance standards. It was littered with mistakes? Things that

:13:35.:13:38.

were uncharacteristic and things that nine times out of 10, the

:13:38.:13:42.

players are coming out with but when things aren't going away,

:13:42.:13:48.

things creep in. It could be a confidence thing, unfamiliar

:13:48.:13:56.

territory, losing four games and they are not comfortable with them.

:13:56.:14:02.

Some of them were very basic and it cost them. We should take nothing

:14:02.:14:07.

away from Bradford because they played well. Absolutely, they

:14:07.:14:11.

carried on from the second have and that has given them a shot in the

:14:11.:14:15.

arm and you can see that, they're really confident now. They were

:14:15.:14:18.

tough on Saturday evening and they needed to be because since played

:14:18.:14:26.

pretty well. There were errors but they were in the game all the time.

:14:26.:14:31.

You have to say that Ben Jefferies is pretty incremental to Bradford

:14:31.:14:37.

scoring points at the moment. He has kicked the ball plenty for

:14:37.:14:44.

tries. The have won a tone which will be a big thing for them?

:14:44.:14:52.

they have had great tendencies as well. -- attendances. Good solid

:14:53.:14:56.

defence and their playing a simplistic game-plan. Then

:14:56.:15:06.
:15:06.:15:09.

Do you think that they can go on and do something? They had a great

:15:09.:15:15.

start, I think it is consistency. They had some injuries as well.

:15:15.:15:21.

There is now no reason they cannot go to the top this year. Do you

:15:21.:15:25.

think we had written them off a little bit early? They did not

:15:25.:15:31.

start brilliantly. I think you cannot write off a team at the

:15:31.:15:37.

start of the season. There are still new teams out there, if you

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:15:49.

look at Wakefield. Their finding that fluidity. They are looking

:15:49.:15:54.

more solid than they did at the start of the season. So what next

:15:54.:16:00.

for Saints? They're looking for a new coach. There will be a huge

:16:00.:16:06.

list of applicants, I am certain of that. It is a fabulous club. You

:16:06.:16:16.

need to go there knowing that a lot of people will throw their hat into

:16:16.:16:23.

the ring. The Giants are retaining their coach until the end of the

:16:23.:16:29.

season, which is good for them. is a great coach. Nathan Browne

:16:30.:16:34.

announced that it would be his last year in charge and it is a strong

:16:34.:16:40.

statement to come out now and say that. He would have to be a

:16:40.:16:44.

favourite for the job, I am certain. He did a fantastic job at

:16:44.:16:54.
:16:54.:16:55.

Huddersfield. They could perhaps go for an interim? Perhaps. I'll keep

:16:55.:16:59.

faith with a couple of experienced players who know the club Inside

:17:00.:17:03.

Out. Warrington and Wakefield met at the

:17:03.:17:09.

Halliwell Jones on Sunday. The Wolves slipped to their first

:17:09.:17:11.

defeat of the season at Leeds last weekend, and you managed to give

:17:11.:17:19.

them an almighty fright here, Richard. We played some great stuff

:17:19.:17:27.

and defended really well against an fantastic Warrington team. We were

:17:27.:17:33.

leading at half-time and felt like we were really in the game. But

:17:33.:17:37.

Warrington are a great side and they came back strongly in the

:17:37.:17:40.

second half. You seemed to be second half. You seemed to be

:17:40.:17:45.

playing with confidence as well. The coach has given us that

:17:45.:17:54.

confidence and backed as. And that is great for the players. We are

:17:54.:18:02.

just concentrating on that defence, trying to tighten up in that area.

:18:02.:18:07.

It was quite a big win for Warrington. Those close ones are

:18:07.:18:14.

the ones that you want to get away with, especially at home. There are

:18:14.:18:20.

still a few too many individual errors. The real test for them will

:18:20.:18:25.

come this weekend against Wigan. They just have enough quality to

:18:25.:18:34.

get over the line. Wakefield had some missed opportunities.

:18:35.:18:39.

And important to build on that, Richard? We were gutted after the

:18:39.:18:49.
:18:49.:18:54.

game, to get so close. It is a bitter pill to swallow when you

:18:54.:19:02.

have put so much effort into getting the result. Do you feel

:19:02.:19:12.
:19:12.:19:12.

that there will be a huge changes? We have improved week on week. Each

:19:13.:19:17.

week we are working on different areas and improving as aside.

:19:17.:19:22.

People do not give us much of a chance on the outside but we are

:19:22.:19:29.

confident about what we are doing. Champions Leeds have been in red

:19:29.:19:31.

hot form so far, they travelled to Salford on Friday, and despite an

:19:31.:19:38.

early scare, it was another sensational display by the Rhinos.

:19:38.:19:43.

They are on fire. We discussed their back line before the show and

:19:43.:19:53.
:19:53.:19:53.

it is the most exciting one for quite a long time. They got that

:19:53.:20:00.

hat-trick. I think the whole back line is on

:20:00.:20:10.
:20:10.:20:15.

fire. Kevin Sinfield as well, the footwork from this kid. He just

:20:16.:20:20.

moved on a sixpence, that is awesome. Then it John Bishop on the

:20:20.:20:29.

outside, they have got speed to burn.

:20:29.:20:39.
:20:39.:20:43.

Kevin Sinfield has been some players for leaves. -- for Leeds.

:20:43.:20:47.

Danny Maguire, all the players are in form at the moment which is

:20:47.:20:55.

wonderful to see. You would pay the entrance fee just for that. It is

:20:55.:21:05.
:21:05.:21:07.

fabulous footwork from Danny Maguire.

:21:07.:21:11.

They have a mixture of youth and experience. These youngsters are

:21:11.:21:17.

coming through a mixed the more experienced players. I just cannot

:21:17.:21:25.

say enough about them. Showing plenty of speed. And support play

:21:25.:21:31.

and all the things that you go through in practice. To see that

:21:31.:21:37.

wrote the performance. It is thrilling.

:21:37.:21:45.

Kevin Sinfield is an incredible player week-in, week-out.

:21:45.:21:50.

He puts in so many hours of practice on the training field. His

:21:50.:21:55.

all-round playing, he thoroughly deserved to break the record. He

:21:55.:22:05.
:22:05.:22:12.

has been a fantastic player full -. You can be the best defensive coach

:22:12.:22:22.
:22:22.:22:24.

in the world, but went Leeds are hot, they are hot. But they will

:22:25.:22:30.

need to improve defensively. They need to go back to some of the

:22:30.:22:35.

basic things. And the attacking basic things. And the attacking

:22:35.:22:38.

play has been impressive so far. Now it's rare these days for an

:22:38.:22:40.

overseas player to hang around for too long at one English club, but

:22:40.:22:43.

Ryan McGoldrick is an exception to that rule. The Australian has been

:22:43.:22:45.

with Castleford for six years now, his staying power with the Tigers

:22:45.:22:53.

has made him a popular figure around Wheldon Road.

:22:53.:22:59.

I am part of the furniture. I came year into a dozen than six. I

:22:59.:23:09.
:23:09.:23:12.

thought I was only going to be here -- 2006. I have enjoyed my time

:23:12.:23:19.

here. It is a rugby league town and if you're going to come all the way

:23:19.:23:29.
:23:29.:23:33.

from Australia you might as well be in a town like that. Where I was

:23:33.:23:39.

before they are mad about rugby league. But we also had the beach,

:23:39.:23:46.

so it is different playing over here! But this is one of the best

:23:46.:23:56.
:23:56.:23:57.

places as a rugby league community. McGoldrick's first season ended in

:23:57.:24:01.

relegation from the Super League. But he was persuaded to stick

:24:01.:24:06.

around. There is not much royalty left now

:24:06.:24:11.

in rugby league. People do what they think is best. But it is

:24:11.:24:17.

something I have always found them rather important. To see how much

:24:17.:24:27.
:24:27.:24:33.

people are affected, that is a big factor. 12 months later McGoldrick

:24:33.:24:38.

and Castleford won promotion back to the elite. Castleford were the

:24:38.:24:45.

last team to experienced the agony of traditional promotion and

:24:45.:24:55.

relegation. If there was relegation, some of

:24:55.:25:01.

those players would have been snapped up. So without the

:25:01.:25:05.

relegation, you definitely can promote young people within your

:25:06.:25:10.

squad and that is what it is all about. We have got a couple of

:25:10.:25:16.

young hookers with a good future ahead of them. And hopefully it

:25:16.:25:21.

will be with Castleford for a long time. That will give us a little

:25:21.:25:27.

bit of spark. And hopefully that will continue. McGoldrick is the

:25:27.:25:31.

great painted manner of the Superleague. His collection of

:25:31.:25:37.

tattoos revealing his philosophy on life. I have got a few. It started

:25:37.:25:47.

when I was 16 with a tiny tattoo on my chest. Then I convinced my

:25:47.:25:56.

parents to get two or three, but that would be it. Then they

:25:56.:26:02.

gradually started to sneak out from under that shirt. Then there was no

:26:02.:26:08.

stopping it. Now I'm starting to run out of the space. There's

:26:08.:26:14.

nothing to do with rugby league or my career, it is more stuff that I

:26:14.:26:22.

have been through. Across my neck I have, at loyalty costs nothing.

:26:22.:26:29.

Life is a gamble is another one. Then my to a bull mastiff dogs back

:26:29.:26:37.

home. The names of my brother and sister and that kind of stuff.

:26:37.:26:42.

Nothing about rugby league. But it fired a Papcastle Bridge for 10

:26:42.:26:51.

years spent maybe I would have to! -- if I end up at Castleford.

:26:51.:26:53.

McGoldrick is the type of character that every team needs, always

:26:53.:27:03.
:27:03.:27:04.

positive and looking on the bright side. He is a fabulous player. On

:27:04.:27:10.

his day he is as good as any player in the competition. I have long

:27:10.:27:14.

been an admirer of him. He is one of those people that can change

:27:14.:27:20.

again. You played alongside him, any stories that you can

:27:20.:27:29.

broadcast?! He is a great fellow. He is a bit niggly on the field.

:27:29.:27:35.

But he is really a good fellow. He has been loyal to Castle food for

:27:35.:27:42.

six years and gone through the good times and the bad. When the chips

:27:42.:27:48.

are down heat always comes out as a good player. Under current

:27:48.:27:55.

character that you want around a club like that? Yes he is not yours

:27:55.:27:59.

terror to the core sports man. He has all those tattoos and has got a

:27:59.:28:09.
:28:09.:28:09.

Harley Davidson. And a nightclub in the back garden! But what we get to

:28:09.:28:19.

see is his dedication. Ian Millward was back on the

:28:19.:28:21.

sidelines for Castleford on Friday night. They travelled to

:28:21.:28:23.

Huddersfield to face the Super League leaders. Dave Woods was

:28:23.:28:31.

League leaders. Dave Woods was watching.

:28:31.:28:41.
:28:41.:28:51.

Robinson has a look around. George comes after it and he will

:28:51.:29:01.
:29:01.:29:01.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 120 seconds

:29:01.:29:52.

defending it. The Huddersfield backwards. Confirmed! Again, the

:29:52.:30:02.
:30:02.:30:12.

defence will question itself. They could do with a response. Oh, he

:30:12.:30:18.

has had himself been the act of scoring. But it is for desperately

:30:18.:30:28.
:30:28.:30:35.

needed points. He is going to be OK, they make them tough, don't they?

:30:35.:30:42.

Jason is in trouble here, I think. Have a look at this. Add chicken

:30:42.:30:52.
:30:52.:30:57.

when a tackle. The referee has seen it and he is of the 10 minutes. He

:30:57.:31:02.

has support but he doesn't need it. What a splendid individual try that

:31:02.:31:12.
:31:12.:31:26.

is. Off he goes. A burst of pace. A good try. George will score! Two

:31:26.:31:31.

tries in the blink of a night just before the break. Huddersfield are

:31:31.:31:41.
:31:41.:32:04.

absolutely in the ascendancy now. George. It will be a hat-trick if

:32:04.:32:14.
:32:14.:32:15.

confirmed. The question is, how did this all get this? He has rattled

:32:15.:32:24.

the ball free. Absolutely nothing wrong with the touchdown. It is a

:32:24.:32:34.
:32:34.:32:38.

hat-trick for George. Another try for Huddersfield. Nobody left to

:32:38.:32:45.

stop the inevitable expert this time, George involved in the build

:32:45.:32:53.

up and Brown is the finisher. Huddersfield are at a canter at the

:32:53.:33:03.
:33:03.:33:17.

moment. Simply no stopping them. Here is Lawrence. I think he has

:33:17.:33:24.

got that down! He has. Though marks here for Michael Lawrence. The

:33:24.:33:30.

strength and desire with two or three defenders on him. He just

:33:30.:33:34.

touches it down. Huddersfield's impressive start to the season

:33:34.:33:43.

continues. They do look impressive? continues. They do look impressive?

:33:43.:33:51.

They are playing great rugby. One thing I really liked as well, a lot

:33:51.:34:01.
:34:01.:34:04.

of the starting line-up were English. Luke George's third hat-

:34:04.:34:09.

trick. Is he a little bit unfortunate that there are so many

:34:09.:34:13.

other good wingers out there at the moment? I don't think he will score

:34:13.:34:23.

an easier one! When you confident, you confident. The ball bounced

:34:23.:34:33.
:34:33.:34:38.

perfectly for him. In the next one, this is a set play. In this one,

:34:38.:34:46.

even you could score this one, Richard! Don't take anything away

:34:47.:34:49.

from the Garrick, you've got to be in the frame to get those current

:34:49.:34:58.

scores. He will be thrilled and so he should be. Is the key for

:34:58.:35:02.

Huddersfield to sustain this. They look a bit stronger this year,

:35:02.:35:06.

don't they? They have some superstar forwards to come back as

:35:06.:35:16.
:35:16.:35:18.

well. Nathan Brown is not scared to rotate them and keep them fresh.

:35:18.:35:23.

And give some of the fringe players ago. Everybody slots into the roles

:35:23.:35:27.

and they don't get too much disharmony in there so it is a big

:35:27.:35:36.

focus that they have fought on, staying consistent. They have not

:35:36.:35:45.

been afraid to bring youngsters in? Yes and you are getting the fruits

:35:45.:35:55.
:35:55.:35:58.

of that Labour. That policy is really in place and you think

:35:58.:36:01.

O'Donnell not being in the team and some of the others, it looks well

:36:01.:36:05.

for them but the challenge is peaking at the right time because

:36:05.:36:08.

the first question you asked is a permanent one, they have to be

:36:08.:36:18.

fresh and healthy. Castleford last seen to be lacking in convents?

:36:18.:36:21.

They are having it tough at the moment. It has been a disruptive

:36:21.:36:27.

few weeks for the club as a whole. A little bit similar to last week,

:36:27.:36:34.

they just need to consolidate and improve and try to get that went in

:36:34.:36:40.

and I am sure they will cope. that Becky, somehow get a win and

:36:40.:36:44.

move forward? They will have to then their backs better than they

:36:44.:36:53.

did they were about passive at the weekend. Huddersfield executed

:36:53.:36:56.

really well and when you set your stall out to do certain things and

:36:56.:37:03.

it doesn't come off, it ricochets downwards.

:37:03.:37:06.

Wigan suffered a shock defeat against the bottom club Widnes last

:37:06.:37:08.

weekend. On Sunday they faced another struggling club and it

:37:08.:37:12.

looked for a while as though it would be another surprise for the

:37:12.:37:20.

Warriors. They started like a house on fire and cost Wigan quite a bit

:37:20.:37:30.
:37:30.:37:33.

of trouble. Definitely a fright to start the game. London did look

:37:33.:37:39.

impressive. That is under which before or, at the scored 45 pounds

:37:39.:37:43.

the before and that has carried on. There was a little bit of quality

:37:43.:37:49.

in this week in the team. Shaun Wane wasn't happy but there is

:37:49.:37:59.
:37:59.:38:05.

Gareth getting them back in again. Is he one of the best signings you

:38:05.:38:15.
:38:15.:38:19.

ever made? He certainly has to be up there. These guys are at the

:38:19.:38:23.

ones that people want to pay to come and watch. Look at that, it is

:38:23.:38:27.

terrific to see. As good as London where with their attack, they got

:38:27.:38:33.

really close and again, they might have to talk about the defensive

:38:33.:38:41.

side of the game. Wigan are on a role here. Once we can got in front,

:38:42.:38:46.

they are pretty good at keeping a team at arm's length? They are

:38:46.:38:50.

really methodical in their attacking plans. They really know

:38:50.:38:57.

where they are going. London finished strong as well so some

:38:57.:39:03.

great passages of play from them as well. Wigan haven't been quite

:39:03.:39:08.

there in the first halves of games, interestingly, but to us through

:39:08.:39:18.
:39:18.:39:18.

this one? That was too soft. That is a sop to try. Sam Tomkins is

:39:18.:39:27.

smart enough and thinks, I will go! He is good at that kind of think

:39:28.:39:34.

but London will be hugely disappointed with that. I mentioned

:39:34.:39:40.

it earlier that they have a chance to be more ruthless on Friday.

:39:40.:39:44.

This week, it is the turn of Hull FC to try their luck with our giant

:39:44.:39:47.

egg and spoon race. The Airlie Birds, as they like to be known,

:39:47.:39:50.

are chasing the time set by Castleford Tigers all the way back

:39:50.:40:00.
:40:00.:40:16.

This week, we have a threesome hoping to fight against evil and

:40:16.:40:19.

claimed world domination or stop only joking, they're here for a

:40:19.:40:23.

giant egg and spoon race but there is something missing from this

:40:23.:40:32.

picture. That's better, a giant egg and spoon. They will need to use

:40:32.:40:36.

their psychological powers to complete the course in the quickest

:40:36.:40:45.

time a possible. Mistakes will be punished with five second penalties.

:40:45.:40:51.

Can Hull FC a bright those wrongs today. First of, it is Jordan

:40:51.:41:01.
:41:01.:41:07.

Turner. That is not a bad start, to be fair. Here comes well sharp. He

:41:07.:41:12.

is doing pretty good here. Jimmy Ellis will be the man he is handing

:41:12.:41:22.
:41:22.:41:27.

on to. Surely he will be hoping to make his mark. They might have been

:41:27.:41:31.

one or two handling errors. They dream of world domination is

:41:31.:41:38.

shutters with at time of 42.92 seconds or stopped that leaves them

:41:38.:41:46.

third on the leaderboard. Join us next time for another feast of

:41:46.:41:56.
:41:56.:41:57.

fancy footwork. And some frightening faces.

:41:57.:42:01.

You are chomping at the bit to have a go? Just waiting for the phone

:42:01.:42:04.

call. Our obstacle course was obviously ideal preparation for

:42:04.:42:08.

Hull. They welcomed Widnes to the KC on Sunday and it was a bit of a

:42:08.:42:14.

rout. Hull FC were fantastic and attacked

:42:14.:42:20.

really importantly and they are flooded through. The first of four

:42:20.:42:30.
:42:30.:42:31.

tries. 34 pounds in total. Also creating opportunities. Danny

:42:31.:42:34.

Houghton was highlighted by both coaches as being key player in this

:42:34.:42:40.

game. He has been given Ali's to play the football they get you for

:42:40.:42:48.

it. Knowing where to go, they look more fluid than I have done for a

:42:48.:42:55.

while. This is good, strong running. Do you think they have gone under

:42:55.:43:05.
:43:05.:43:05.

the radar a bit because they missed that game at Catalan? No, coaches

:43:05.:43:10.

and fans are smart. Some teams have played a few more games and you get

:43:10.:43:16.

a few hiccups but they have recorded it fairly well. Andy Lynch

:43:16.:43:26.
:43:26.:43:26.

is a fantastic player. He has been a huge acquisition for the club.

:43:26.:43:36.

Here we see great ship in a passing movement for. Aha aha ha ha ha go

:43:36.:43:41.

Denis Betts didn't pull his punches afterwards saying, to have 58

:43:41.:43:48.

points scored against you, this is unacceptable. After winning well,

:43:49.:43:55.

chipping that amount of points, it is a shame. It will be

:43:55.:44:00.

disappointing for Dennis. He even said that the last two tries got

:44:00.:44:09.

flatter them will stop there are still learning. There will be

:44:09.:44:18.

better for that experience. Catalans against Hull K hour, this

:44:18.:44:26.

was a close game? Yes. Michael Dobson against his own club

:44:26.:44:36.
:44:36.:44:37.

squeezed over and they think they were winning at half-time. It was a

:44:37.:44:45.
