Even though it keeps cutting out, it's a decent channel for rl commentary. It might be worth it for when Wigan are over here.

Cheers, though in ordinary circumstances I'd hope to be at the game.

Although I will concede it's a good 30 seconds delay.

Sack Brown...

Oh, wait
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Great performance today and a good example of how a 'weaker' team can put a game plan together to win a game.

Our completon rate must have been near on faultless and played a really simple game plan very effectively and finished our sets really well. Hudds ball control was awful and they consistently knocked on when they seemed to be getting a roll on.

Thought Foster an Kear were solid for Bulls and L'Estrange and Manese were strong in the middle.

Crabtree stood out for Hudds and but they lacked direction and probably missed Brough.

Didn't expect that today anyway!

(We had to turn the electrics off just in case anyone thought I'd exploded with glee!)

FT 18-43

Sammut drop goal.

Sammut try after the hooter had sounded.

Foster goal. (Although sky text credited this to Kearney, confirmation required)

Correction to the correction: Blythe try, not Walker by all accounts. That's still 99 tries for Chev Walker now. Eddie Hemmings can't rest easy yet.

What the hell's up with the Bulls this season?!!!

Week 1: big win
Week 2: rubbish
Week 3: big win
Week 4: words can't describe how poor they were
Week 5: big win

I can see a pattern appearing here. Widnes should be confident for next week!

Well played the bulls they deserved their win, far more enthusiastic in all areas

But I can't begin to say how bad the giants were today, and I'm sure ant Bulls fan at the game will agree with that.

Utterly woeful tackling that was only matched in its ineptitude by our handling - when they switched on the looked dangerous but it was only a case of carrying it closer to the bulls line before we coughed it up, and they were the good patches

It was only luck that stopped the bulls scoring more, and they were never troubled in defence really because all they had to do was wait for us to knock on.

Still, top of the league lol

It could have been more as Foster was bundled into touch next to the corner flag on 67 minutes and then 2-3 minutes later apparently Sammut dropped the ball after a one-two with the line at his mercy.

Can anyone at the game clarify whether Foster or Kearney converted the final Sammut try after the hooter? Ta.

Terrible stuff from the Giants. They're a good side, probably better on paper than the Bulls. But certainly not so much better that they can play like and still win. Hopefully a bit of a wake up call.

The Bulls really did play some nice stuff along the way though.

McGilvary was outstanding again. It will be criminal if that lad doesn't get an international cap.

That's me.  I'm done.

Last season was the same but opposite... :wacko:

Round 1: loss
Round 2: win
Round 3: loss
Round 4: win
Round 5: loss

And also, until last week, so 4/5, we've repeated the same result as last season. Wakefield H - win/win, Hull FC A - loss/loss, Castleford H - win/win, St Helens H - win/loss, Huddersfield A - win/win.

Jerry was great but also dropped the ball a few times

Crabtree
Faiumu
Cudjoe

Were the only ones to come out with any real plaudits

Far too much shuffling went on with the team - And it showed with our defence

Completely agree regarding McGillvary. I've been very impressed with him for a few seasons now. And is testament to the loan system when he was at Batley and Barrow.
