Shame that a game that was so good for so long turned a bit scrappy, was that Smith's game plan.

Hull put in a fine defensive effort but were not able to sustain it over the full 80 minutes. Wire's half backs were superb, impressed by Ratchford's kicking and cover tackling and Myler's running and passing and Lineham did well for the hosts

Nothing in Warrington's game plan suggested they were trying to make the game scrappy,they weren't at their best in the first half partly due to not sticking to the game plan and partly due to Hull's very good defence. When Hull began to tire in the second half,as they were always going to do because of all the tackling they had done,Warrington went for broke and Hull couldn't match them.

Stevo was very baised towards Hull,and two people who are paid I suspect very handsomely to present a RL programme started live on air to have their own personal argument about the differences between snow and sleet,and how you can tell which is which by the speed it falls at????????????????????????????? Enough is enough with these two clowns,it really is time they were replaced!

Bit disappointed but we made too many mistakes and you cannot account for the officials missing a blatant knock on before a wire try.
I have said it before that Ratchford is the most naturally gifted player in SL, a pleasure to watch and has to make the England squad in the WC.

The other classic was that if you can see the writing on the ball, it must be a try.

I thought the bit about the snow/sleet was quite amusing really. Barrie Mac laughed at his 'writing on the ball' line.

Hugely disappointed with the 2nd half self destruct by Hull but credit to Wire, every time a player made a half break they swarmed forward in that spell and Hull couldn't cope.

Some great stuff from Myler and Ratchford, Hull were never happy when either of those two had the ball. Agree with westhuller about Ratchford and Myler is coming along nicely.

Tom Lineham will have benefitted greatly from that game, looks to be Briscoe's natural successor and the more experienced he gets the better it will be for Hull and maybe the national side a year or so down the line. Still learning though and you could see that with one or two errors, very happy to see him in the team though.

Did Ratchford play to a new rule when he kicked through after Hull coughed up possession? Kicking before the advantage line. That needs changing for me because he was in a no lose situation, the kick comes off you score, the kick doesn't come off, you get the ball back anyway. Seems a strange situation to me.

Did the rendition of "There's only one Johnny Whiteley" to the "Winter wonderland" tune come over at all well on the telly and was anything commented on re. the current situation with the Allams?

Just wondered. :huh:
