Regarded as the toughest match on the calendar, the Hull Derby between Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers is without question the biggest rivalry in rugby league.

It’s the ‘One True Derby’ in the Super League competition, with it’s thunderous hits, carries and atmosphere making it one of the most highly anticipated events on the calendar.

As Rovers remained stuck in rugby league mediocrity, Super League itself had to wait eight years for it’s first taste of a Hull Derby. Rovers had the upper hand at first, before Hull pegged them back to lead the Derby aggregate at the end of 2016 by 16 wins to 15.

The all-time record stands at 116 wins for Hull FC and 103 for Rovers.
