Half of Hull descended on [...].

Half of Hull descended on Wembley yesterday for the rugby league Challenge Cup Final to see my team Kingston Rovers take on Leeds. In 1980, Rovers won - the last time we did. Back then, as 100,000 supporters travelled to London, a sign by the road read: "Will the last person out turn off the lights!" Sadly yesterday Leeds got the better of us. So after 35 years of hurt, rugby's (still not) coming home. But as the club's song When The Red Red Robin goes, we'll still "live, love, laugh and be happy".
