No I didn't.

 

I just looked at the league table after 21 games and compared Hull to Huddersfield. It's more reliable than a single game which by the way....YOU LOST.

 

What you don't understand is that Huddersfield are competing at the top end having to maintain standards every single week. Teams like Hull can lose to Wakefield, Castleford, take a thrashing at Catalans and then build themselves up for the occasional decent display when a top team comes to town. And in this case lose anyway.

 

The league table doesn't lie..you're 8th and falling and Wakefield are closing in.

I fully understand that Huddersfield are a good team who have had a very good season so far.

 

I also understand that both competitions are ultimately decided by knock-out football against the best teams. I saw plenty in my team's performance to offer encouragement for what lies ahead.

After watching full time today none of Hull FC's tried should of counted. Two blatant forward passes in the build up for Greens and Yeamans tries and it should off been a penalty for the tackle by Ellis IMO. Obviously I didn't watch the full game, but it doesn't appear FC have been done that harshly to.

Agree about the forward passes.

 

That was just a small but representative sample of the standards set by Bentham and his team of officials yesterday.

All three to go out?


They can't all go out at once, though. How about in the event that 2 clubs exit at the same stage, the one higher up the league table will remain higher up?

Having seen the challenge by Ellis on Robinson on SL Fulltime,it certainly wasn't a shoulder charge.

I'm guessing of course but he's being charged with grade b so I think I'll be right.

The RFL disciplinary agree with you. The charge is 'striking'. Apparently you can strike an opponent with your chest.

Who knows


Ellis copped Robinson on the back of Robbos head with his shoulder

It's pretty obvious without black and white specs on

Gareth Eliis's spirits are lifted when a mysterious female arrives to take her place on the RFL's disciplinary panel for tonight's hearing....

It wasn't a shoulder charge at all. Paul Anderson has embarrassed himself in that post-match interview. Just one of them unfortunate collisions. Robinson stepped as Ellis went in and was a hard hit with the chest.

Those highlights on SLFT and the resulting comments were extremely biased. No showing of the Crabtree shoulder charge 5 minutes later. Or the put in touch after the tackle was complete (happened twice with two different decisions!). Some extremely dubious decisions both ways in that game and I came away from that game feeling frustrated that the game had been spoilt by the man in the middle's performance.

And just to be clear, that isn't me blaming the ref for the loss. It's the same reason we lost last week and the week before - our composure in the opponents 10m is shocking and our record for conceding in the last 10 minutes must be the worst in SL over the last two seasons.

Given Anderson's remarks regarding the match officials, I wouldn't be surprised if the RFL reacquaint him with their 'RESPECT' campaign.
