Hull yesterday ruled out a possible merger with Hull Kingston Rovers, the Second Division leaders, which would probably have seen the amalgamated club placed in the Super League next season. In a statement, the club said: "The lack of any financial package to assist in the unification of the clubs and the subsequent difficulties in strategic planning prohibited such a scheme."
