Harsh decision against Radford, Smith must have missed the elbow to the head from Bailey.

No surprise to see the cheap shot coward involved. And no surprise to see him wait until 3 or 4 Leeds players had hold of Radford before going after him then trying to nut Long for no reason at all.

Dave Woods on R5 said it best.
"He was sent of for punching Ryan Bailey, whereas a lot in the game would have given him a medal".

Great effort from Hull so far after the harsh Radford sending off. Really impressed, in particular with Tom Briscoe, best British winger in the league by some distance.

Smith doing all he can for Leeds since half time.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

His ability to stop the try has been on display once again, you're not wrong saying he's the best British winger.

I think Richards and Hicks are non-British rivals that are equal or better on current form (assuming we don't count Paddy's Irish connections).

Feel sorry for Hull if this is how it ends, really hard done by. Little to fear from Leeds next week based on this and last weeks performance.

I agree, its been an absorbing game and with thirteen on the field i think Hull would have cleaned up considering how disorganised Leeds have been for most of the game.

Agree - Hull would've won at a canter with 13. Just goes to show how one poor decision can swing a game. Only in Smith's world are three elbows to the head and an attempted head butt less serious than three punches. Sin bin for both would've been sufficient.

Yes, Jordan Turner wasn't used.

Now I understand why sometimes Hull fans despair. Using only 3 subs is daft. McNamara did that at Cas.

So Bailey gets away with elbowing Radford three times in the back of the head then Radford gets sent off. Yellow cards for both would have been fair. The ref cost us the game today with a very poor decision , Smith just blew it . To say I am a bit p***ed off is an understatement.
Posters on here are right, Briscoe is one special player and Reece Lynn for a 17 year old had a great game too.

Bailey should get a 1-match ban and Radford, sending off sufficient. Equal things up a bit between those two. Bish, bash, bosh. Job's a good 'un.

Nah. He probably made a wrong call on Radford, but when you punch someone three times and split their eye open you're giving the ref a reason to send you off. Hull played well, but got away with a number of knock-ons where Smith said it went backwards (the first play of the game, for one).

It was a difficult game to referee. Hull didn't lose because of the extra man, but because of the poor quality of their passing - Horne and Long threw some shockers.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Pretty much as i saw it too, red for definite for me, the problem we got is some refs only give yellows there when they should be red

Lets see the outcome on tuesday, should be 1 match minimum




A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.
