How’s the amalgamation going along
« on: December 06, 2018, 09:40:31 AM »
With both Hull and Hull Ionians both topping their respective leagues the noises emanating around a coming together appear to have dried up, does that indicate that there has never really been any formal discussions and it was just Back Street Bungler at his mischevious best?

Hopefully Hull will be able to continue in this position and make the step up next season. I think promotion for them would be a positive advertisement for rugby union in the city which comes a poor second to the league format and could do with a boost.

I have no idea.. 
However the fundamental strengths and weaknesses of the respective clubs remain unchanged.
Loving all rugby but especially at grassroots level. Lucky to be involved in England's number one ranked level 7 league...Yorkshire One.

And you would know all about that.

I believe from looking at the past posts regarding this there was very much a ‘darling, you protest too much’ from the Ionian contingent on here. Dear Tradesman’s Acquaintance above being one of them.

I think the fact Ionians have a multi-millionaire vet turning out for their third team might suggest generous donors to the registered charity arm business of the club may have saved the day.

But when you have a club like I’s, that keeps their elder members and old boys segregated upstairs with the prawn sandwiches, and the players kept downstairs, you’re not going to get a merger happening easily - they don’t even like mixing with their own!

Billy 36,
Don't really know what to say in response to such a poorly informed posting but, with regard to the previous 'protests' you mention, when postings are full of inaccuracies, there is a need to correct some forum posters..

Your posting suggests you have never enjoyed a match day at Brantingham Park. Your loss. Enjoy your speculation.

Just passing by,
Amalgamation? Merger? A snowball in hell's chance. Ships that pass in the night.
