Hope Cas can keep the 100% record until they come to Wakefield over Easter. :butcher:

I don't - your ground wouldn't be able to take the travelling support!
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.

Happy to have scrapped this one.  Agree with Powells comments probably the worst we have played, although in fairness thought Hulls defence was very strong and easily cut out some of the plays which have been very effective for us so far this year.


Both sides made some silly errors, the knock ons by Tansey and Owen completely unforced and almost criminal in a tight game like this could have been the deciding factor (Tanseys cost us a try), fortunately in the tackle following the scrum from the Owen one Shenton got stuck into Crooks and dove him back a good ten meters causing a knock on, from which I think we got upfield and scored.  Additionally I thought the big hit on Crooks by Carney which also resulted in a spilt ball seemed to raise the Cas fans and players.


Could of gone either way and the last few minutes seemed to last for ever!


Mariano was immense, strong running and didnt panic when he broke to create 2nd Cas try and didnt have support, went himself, held it up a bit and had the strengh to offload when the support got their, rather than panic passing (ala Tansey when he broke!). 


Both sides hookers played well and both were very dangerous around the ruck (both Houghton and Clarke should be a long way ahead of Mick Mc for international selection now) - Clark created the 1st Cas try from nothing and was aware and dangerous throughout.  Houghton was Hulls MOM in my opinion.


Sneyd was good again and his goal kickings a huge asset.  Also great to see Jake Webster back and was a real handful - not lost any of his power during the last year of injury, hasnt Big Jake, and was dragging three Hull players along with him every time, just hope he can stay fit. 


Thought Carney was quite quiet but coped with the high balls he was been targeted with well and really helps the forwards out, not looking as  devestating at present (teams are getting numbers to him and Cas arent providing him with the best ball at present).but his hard work in the middle really helps the forwards.


Good game, good atmosphere and great away following as always!

Great game and a great atmosphere.

Definitely could have gone either way but Hull just seem to be unable to close a game out at the moment - we've lost 2 games by 2 points and that one by 3 so I'm expecting the doubters to start eating their words in the next few weeks as the play patterns develop and Hull start to bring in a few wins. 

We look a much quicker side this season and we finally have the ability to score from 10 yards out - something we've been particularly poor at in the last few years.


Congrats to Cas who definitely played the full 80 and edged it with their composure imo.


I'm certain 1 Hull club will be in the mix after the regular season but having seen both live I know where my monies going :smoke:
