Hull F.C. v Hull Kingston Rovers (1902)
Rugby arch rivals lock horns in Hull.
Non-Fiction 1902 4 mins
As with many sports matches shot specifically for showing to fans later, the emphasis here is on capturing as many spectators and individual players as possible. The final score was 14-6 to Hull FC. Defeat would become a familiar experience for the Rovers in the early years of the 20th century, and they would have to wait until 1920 to beat their old foes Hull in the final of the Yorkshire Cup.
