Paul (Saint of Hull) UK




I was a Hull Kingston Rovers fan as a boy but fell out with Rovers and Rugby in general for a number of years and it was watching Saints on Sky that got me back into the game around 1999.

I grew up opposite the Zetland Arms where my mum worked as a barmaid for 25 years which was owned and ran by Colin Hutton, the ex Rovers, Great Britain Coach, Manager and Chariman etc.

I had the pleasure of growing up with a whole host of stars living and visiting the pub across the road from me.

I played dominos with Gavin Miller, got my arse kicked by Roger Millward (several times), played in my back garden with John Dorahays kids, and looked on in awe when the New Zealand tour bus pulled up outside my
house to go to a function in there and waited for Clayton Friend to get off the bog for his autograph.

One of the best memories I have is the "hardman" of the era - Mark Broadhurst - still on the pitch 30 mins after the game signing autographs for fans.

It just goes to show that some of these hardmen are true gentlemen and soft as shite on the inside.

Next time I'm in my loft I'll try and dig some photos etc out that I think I have somewhere.
