Discuss the game here! (sorry about the late posting of the game threads ... I forgot!)

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

I want to change my vote to a draw, but St Helens to win and Cru still to go through

Well it does not look like Hull KR are pulling any punches with this match, looks like a pretty good side to me. I was thinking that Crusaders would win this one with the way that they have been playing recently, but it maybe quite a tight game. I'd go for 50/50 draw normally, but I think in such a tight game with still a fair bit at stake a drop goal would split them.

As for which team will win , I'm still none the wiser.
Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

If we are to manage to do anything in the playoffs this is a game we have to be able to win. Hopefully Morgan will have got that over too the players and they can bounce back after the Wigan game. Us by 16

Cas have to lose and we have to win (or draw) - simple really! wink.gif

I'm looking forward to going to the game tonight although I'm really nervous. It's going to demand a huge team effort to beat KR. To get into the top eight would be a massive achievement for the club and for Welsh RL in general.

I really, really hope we do it.

Well done to Cru and all concerned...way above expectations(mine) after all they've been through

Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer

Great game - I think that the real difference was that Crusaders needed the win, whereas HKR didn't. Could have done without the moronic chanting from a small number of HKR supporters at the back of the Roberts stand, bit too soccer-like for my taste.

Write to the RFL and get a slot on "This Morning" - Hull KR will be fined in no time
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

It was, without doubt, a cracker!

I've been to many finals in many different sports over the years but Saturday night at the Cae Ras/Racecourse was one of the greatest sporting moments I, personally, have ever experienced - I exagerate not. It was a tense, tough game from beginning to end. I was quietly confident during half-time but then KR scored two quick tries immediately after the break and I had my head in my hands to the accompaniment of "You're not singing anymore!". But, then, our half-backs started to play. Rhys Hanbury's try was quality and Sammut's sprint was magical - he's our new 'Welsh' Wizard!

The atmoshpere was electric and, at times, the singing was deafening. The drama intensified after the game finished when, after we thought that Saints were winning comfortably against Cas, the 30-30 all scoreline flashed up on the scoreboard with the words: 'one minute left' flashing underneath. That was the longest one minute in my life. When the final score was eventually announced, the roar of the fans underlined the fact that this was a historical moment in Welsh RL. And "I was there".

As we walked back to the car, I'll never forget the magnanimous spirit showed by the KR fans as many of them shook our hands and congratulated us on having made the play-offs.

Hard lines to the Cas supportes on the forum.
