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.

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

Awful decision by Smith.

Hull threw that away, Leeds are cack.

The one consolation is that we will be able to watch Leeds getting ripped a new one at your place next week, rather than ourselves.

Fairly fed up about this result.

Surely Sean Long has enough experience to know if you're down to 12 v 13 you use all your tackles in a set of six.

The decision to kick through on tackle three when on their line, which led to Leeds scoring in their next set was a killer.

Can't blame Lee Radford much, tbh. Like I said to Kenny Tiger earlier on, given the chance to rain a few punches on Ryan Bailey after he's given you the usual cheap shots, how many players would turn it down.

Ian Smith, in sending Radford off, highlighted the inconsistency in RL officials this season.

When Hull FC played Catalans away, David Feriol punched Danny Washbrook 6 or 7 times after playing the ball, Washbrook covered his head best he could without throwing a single punch in retaliation. Ref sends Feriol and Kirk Yeaman to the bin for ten minutes, Yeaman having been 40 yards away when the incident happened, mistaken identity. But there's the inconsitency, the ref intended to give both Feriol and Washbrook ten minutes, one player for throwing punches, the other for doing nothing.

Radford throws three, instant sending off.

If only Ian Smith had reffed the Mason v Fielden game two or three years back...

A penalty against him and a slap on the wrist from the ref.

Never been so infuriated by an official in my life. An absolute disgrace. I would back up Agar all the way if he had a rant about him. Absolutely appalling.

I'm not normally a ref basher, in case anyone hadn't notied, but in my opinion Smith got this one completely wrong. Yellow yes, red never.

The best team won and the ref got the Radford decision right. Radford deserves a 3 match ban for cowardice, sean mcrae summed it up nicely "Radford came in throwing 3 or 4 punches when bailey wasn't in a position to defend himself". How anyone can call Bailey a cheap shot merchant after Radfords cowardly actions makes me laugh. Leeds did enough despite Ian smith doing his best to even it up by becoming stevie Wonder whenever Hull knocked the ball on. That's hulls cup final over and their season next week when Rovers put them to bed (minus Radford)

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.

Only a simpleton could claim that wasn't the deciding factor.

Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't, but Hull had put themselves in a position to win the game in spite of it. If they had held their nerve in midfield and got a few safe kicks downfield they'd have won. Radford is pretty useless in any event.

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.

I wouldn't mention cup finals if I were you.

Oh, and how can Radford's behaviour affect whether Bailey is a cheap shot merchant or not?, Radford can come up with as many cheap shots as possible, it doesn't negate the face that Bailey's one.

That's a rather bitter post from someone who's team won, we'll see what sort of post you produce after next week's game at the DW.

Hmmmm.

Leeds v Wigan - two big names.
Saints v Wire - exciting tie and a real rivalry.
Hull v Hull KR - Dream tie for the play-offs.
Hudds v Crusaders - Easiest possible game for the expansion team finishing eighth.

I bet these are the ties that the RFL would have picked if they were in a position to engineer them.

Oh.

My thoughts exactly during the Leeds - Hull game, the RFL / Sky and the clubs involved in the playoffs (shared revenue / receipts) benefitted most from a Hull defeat, assuming Huddersfield could then win in France. Although I disagree about Huddersfield being the easiest possible game, they are hitting form at the right time and will hammer Crusaders next weekend.

Same old usual tosh from the anti Leeds/Bailey posters. If Bailey had done what Radford did there'd be calls on here to bring back the death penalty! So Radford punches a player laying on the floor not in a position to defend himself and you say that's not a sending off offence???

You seem to have overlooked the fact that Bailey elbowed Radford in the back of the head three times before he got his comeuppance.
