Oh yes indeed... though by the looks of things Newcastle will be moving on and two other teams aswell leaving poor old HUll after such a good year to fend for themselved or even worse fold.... I think in the "fold" department i'm being a bit over the top.. however i know after years of turmoil and Hull's various teams that the last 18 months have been great for Hull hockey with the introduction of the Packs (Owners) A new coach (Strachan) and several young good british players (Philips brothers, Pyatt, radmall and boothroyd) that things are looking up and if there was to be another upheaval of the league system i would hate to see what would happen to all this progress!!!
