The English Rugby League Challenge Cup final kicks off at midnight on Saturday between between Wigan and Hell FC.
I will be sitting up and cheering for the Pie Eaters for a couple of different reasons.
Firstly, the cod 'eads are playing and there are two English teams I support - Hull Kingston Rovers and whoever is playing Hell FC.
And secondly i'll be having a couple of pints and thinking of our old mate Ratty; cos I'm sure that wherever it is that good rats go he will have found a fence to lean over and watch the game, drink in hand and silly hat on cheering Wigan home.
We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately
