Yesterday I went to my first rugby league game in approximately 35 years. A work colleague had arranged an executive box for his 40th birthday. Hull FC is his team so we travelled up to Hull yesterday in a minibus and enjoyed a great game as the underdogs beat Leeds rhinos 34-20. this was the best of the tries.
My colleague still attends matches with his father. My last game was with my own father in the early seventies when he took me to see a Wigan game at Central Park. Sadly illness curtailed his opportunities to attend local games though he used to avidly watch the rugby on TV.
The game brought back a lot of memories.
