Bit disappointed it wasnt a stronger Hull KR team, not as many 'stars' as expected but it was a game that Fev deserved to win. Defence superb, Mozzer and Dickens looked awesome for their first hitout, Liam Welham looks a gem at 4

Worrying news is Tonks and JJN went off injured so lets hope its not too bad

Morrison was the stand out player. Dickens off load for Divorty try was out of this world as was Kains to Hardman when Kain seemed wrapped up on the sixth taclkle. Spears tried hard and all in all a solid performance by all the team. Hope Tonks and Jessie Joe are O K after being injured.

According to one of the Hull KR players who was warming up early on, ALL the players involved were '1st Graders'
Please don't undervalue the performance of the Fev players today. Remember for some of them it was their first outing this season. Imagine what will happen when they've got into the swing of things!
Personally I think we've gone up a few notches since last season and hopefully that bodes well for the coming season. We shouldn't get carried away as it was only a friendly but that was a decent performance both in attack and defence against a set of full time players.

cracking defense this aft but it did strike me how potent we looked near their line. Options either side and much more creation than i've been used to for a while.
Very encouraging!
Proper stuff starts sunday then! Full monty breakfast down the lane with the bretheren. Nut bus, a couple of pints and watching fev! Sundays don't get much better!

An outstanding display by a rovers side who has had few friendlies to get into the swing of things. We looked sharp, and alert, and some training ground moves led to some excellent tries well done all round. Well done Morrison impressed me with his handling and determination as did steele and hardman. Dickens was immense, the only fault i can find at this stage in the season is our field kicking was a bit poor.

UP THE ROVERS!

Bearing in mind the lack of game time and the good quality of the opposition, I thought that was a good, solid all round performance.

There were definite positives in many areas, including :

- Morrison's running & workrate
- Hardman, great defence & support play
- Saxton & Steel driving the ball in.
- Stu' was his usual self [ Do I remember someone last year actually saying his best days were gone?] great passes out of the tackle.
- Welham, looks a good player

Thanks guys, good effort from all concerned, looking forward to a really positive and consistent season

very professional display with few errors throughout. Only one thing needs practice which could cost us if it happens in the league is the high kicks! oops. Very impressed with all of them I thought the handling much improved.

Seem to have a new attitude in defence don't we. Very well done lads.

We have a pack that run like backs. Watch out Championship!!!!

was hoping to see what hull KR fans thought about the game on their rlfans board but all they are bothered about is going offtopic arguing with hullfc fans
