2006 Meetings between the two teams, home team in listed first, winner in bold
Round 7: Hull 0 - 46 St Helens
Round 16: St Helens 26 - 27 Hull
Qualifying SF: St Helens
12 - 8 Hull
Of the 3 meetings, Hull have covered the respective spreads 2/3 times.
I remember all the games quite well. Round 7 marked Hull's worst defeat in their superleague history. It was all over within the first 20min and by HT the score was 30-0.
Round 16 was probably the best SL match I have watched ever. Hull were in the midst of the record breaking streak with them coming back from 6-16 down at Knowsley Road. Cooke had a blinder but it was the Hull defense which ultimately won it for them.
The final game last fortnight was a tight affair as the scoreline suggests but played in miserable conditions effectively cancelling out the Saints' running game.
Lines are already up for this match:
ST HELENS SAINTS -8.5
HULL FC +8.5
Saints have had the week off leading up to this, Hull put on a brilliant defensive effort last week to hold out the Bulls.
I'll be playing this one, be back closer to the day with more comments.
