Kingston Upon Hull City Council has leant its support to a campaign fighting the merger of two rugby league clubs, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

The council's cabinet sent a letter to Super League chiefs unanimously opposing the merger of Hull Sharks with Gateshead Thunder.

Council leader Pat Doyle spoke out at a meeting of 500 Hull Sharks fans at a working men's club on October 5.

But he dismissed calls that the council should directly fund the sports club.

He said: 'There is no council in the land that has ever put money into a club as such.

'We made our stand saying the merger should stop. We are also willing to put money into a super stadium.'
