This Jobi Murphy looks a talent.

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.

yeah it was only 5m forward......however, the rest of that play leading to the try was belting.

Best team won, not sure thy deserved that much of a margin but there you go.

Game ruined by officials but still a performance to be proud of on the whole
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.

Yes I agree it was, good game of rugby for 70 mins a shame about the last 10 Cas didn't deserve to lose by so much.

Great win. Impressed with Addy's kicking and thought Walker and Whitehead were strong. Kearney must be a shout for Exiles.

Ref wasn't too bad, if players weren't messing about he wouldn't have to blow whistle. Every 'game' thread on here ends up having a go at refs!

How many times did Stevo say "they'll take the two" when Bradford kept getting penalties near the try line at 20-12 and with Cas having a man in the bin?!
Why on Earth would they take two points when they're 8 clear and clearly dominating a Cas side with a man down in good field position?! He said this about three times and they tapped each time! How couldn't he work this out?!

Ref wasn't too bad I think the majority of your supporters had a difference of opinion in the first half with all the constant booing you could hear on the telly.

Maybe it's the laws rather than the refs. This team on a warning business will nearly always lead to a sin bin. Take a drive, loose carry and they're in the bin for a ball steal.

Do people genuinely believe that, as tonight, Cas were put on a team warning and the very next tackle Ellis deliberately stripped the ball? Same in the first half when a addy was binned

It ruins the game

I think when ur at the game it's easier to think the calls are wrong, but most on here have seen it on TV with replays! Although its also frustrating that Sky commentary seem to spend there time finding errors in calls rather than getting excited about the skill and promoting the game. When Eddie got excited by accident about Walkers '100th' try ...... I want that after other tries when it's good skill!!

Must admit, I thought it was shoulder to shoulder on the replay, but that does appear to show head contact. Be interesting to see the RFL naughty list on Monday.

I think that's a really good point. The 'non-offending' team will be, shall we say, 'doing their best to get a penalty' in that situation.

A new can of worms was opened up tonight as the team warning rule might have cost Cas the game. I'm not a ref basher by the way but we've all heard the phrase "The Steve Ganson Show" many times....

Pleased with that. The first thing my mum said when we came back was "Millward's not happy!" It's a shame it became the Ganson Show once again, it ruined the game as a spectacle. I didn't give Cas nearly enough credit, I thought they battled hard - even with that second try <_< - I was impressed with Jordan Thompson, he got his nose through the line often, Tansey was a handful. Jarrod Sammut, new YouTube sensation with that error.

Our mutual friend Nigel Wood was sat a few seat down from me, I had a quick word with him at the end about his brother-in-law who was a former colleague.

Anyhoo, I'll have to watch the game back, comfort in the knowledge of 2 points, to see the overall perspective of the game. But first, cottage pie and a delve into the murky world of this thread... Oo I can't wait.

On Odsal Top baht 'at.

The decision when Dixon was taken out and Bradford got the penalty was an absolute joke. And L'estrange should have gone for 10 minutes when after the Bulls were put on team warning, Ellis scored and L'estrange nearly took his head off in the attempted tackle to stop the try.
Bulls deserved the win awith some cracking handling and offloads, not too disappointed. And we all know Scruton will go unpunished.

Penalties looked fair to me & Cas looked like they were going to crack from halftime onwards

Much as it pains me to say the Bulls were much better
