50-30.

 

Is that a new type of kick?

20-12, defences on top.

 

 

Game over, 50-30.

 

So defences not quite on top at the end then. :)

Rovers only got anywhere near scoring thanks to the Giants giving them possession in our 30

Usually on the back of a dodgy Halibut decision - their last try for example came from an offside penalty that he had ignored for 75 mins

Giants on the other hand never looked like losing

A stronger ref would have seen a lower score for HKR and a bigger one for Hudds

Hmmm.

 

The ever reliable and completely unbiased Chris Park of Blunderside said Hudds had 7 penalties on the bounce in this game.

Sandercock on Humberside laying the blame to the first half performance on a 7 nil penalty count against Rovers.

Ant might tell us what sort of penalty count a "stronger ref" would have given perhaps.

Rovers were shockingly offside, laying on and towards the end of the first half getting quite dirty

To be fair to Alibert he was consistent for 75 mins in ignoring everything but hands in the ruck or crossing but given the Giants were by far the better team the slow ruck and offsides helped Rovers far more

Rovers could have been penalised at every tackle IMO.

Rovers were shockingly offside

Next time you watch the Giants play, and you think the opposition are "shockingly offside", have a look at your own team's defensive line when they haven't got the ball.

 

I think you'll find it quite illuminating.

 

And as I hope you should already know, I'm no fan of Hull KR.

Oh for the most part Alibert was consistent and evenly handed through the game - his one offside penalty on 75 was bloody galling given he'd ignored it all game - and yes for both sides

The point of my comments was in response to Sandercock blaming the penalty count when he's lucky it wasn't much higher

Very entertaining game i thought, both sides playing a similar game, I also thought HKR were offside all game, but that was made to look worse because the Giants are so slow at moving up themselves, Giants got a lot of penalties on the bounce, and HKR did in the second half, Both defences left a lot to be desired, I thought HKR were pretty decent myself especially the forwards, Giants had one or two players that stood out, Lunt, Ferres, Eorl. and that was the difference for me. HKR only had Eden in the backs that really caught the eye, Why the Giants let him go is baffling, Yes he can drop some clangers, ( not today ) but he is exiting going forward and taking the line on, he is going to be a top player. Poor crowd but what's new, Master class of Goalkicking in very windy condition from Brough and Dobson well done both sides, i enjoyed the game.

Yeah Eden played very well today

I'd say difference was our backs
Wardle & Ferres had the rovers right side utterly terrified when they ran at them and on the other side Cudjoe was making Whelam look like a rookie armature

Crabtree was utterly immense though

Sandercock on Humberside laying the blame to the first half performance on a 7 nil penalty count against Rovers.

Sandercock's like a broken record. He seemed completely unwilling to accept that there was any other factor in the defeat other than the referee.

 

Radio Humberside's Lee Richardson clearly thought he was talking ###### but was too polite to put it that way.
