We can't be worse than last week.

 

It will be close.

This is the sort of game the Bulls should be targeting if we want any chance of staying up, so I'd expect to see an improvement. I still think we will lose though, Hull KR is a tough away match at the best of times. Really can’t see where our next league points are coming from to be honest.

Dont see anything but more pain for the Bulls here, KR have shown against Wigan and Giants in a first and second half how strong they can be, When they manage a full game on song they will be good ,  Bradford looked the worst Iv'e seen them last week, which with everything going on is not surprising. Hope it's a good game but i fear for Bradford.

HKR hard to beat at home , to win fairly easily

I agree they should win but can we still say that about a team who haven't won at home since July 2013 and have conceded over 60 points in their two home games so far this season?

 

If they lose today they really will be sweating. The only thing keeping them out of the relegation places this morning is Bradford's points deduction.

I'm not sure that would help. You haven't beaten Hull at home for three years.

Maybe the bulls should change their famous bully bully song to the old status quo song down down deeper & down.

Wasn't there today, but Foster was out before kick off with sickness, Diskin and Sidlow went off injured during the match, and no pack whatsoever, I'm surprised Rovers only scored three times.

I said it above, if we don't get a Super League win before Easter then we're pretty much done for as we've got a run of Leeds, Wigan, Warrington, Saints and Huddersfield and we are pretty much at the halfway point then. Next two up are Widnes and Salford and I don't think we'll get anything out of those either. Anyone still thinking we'll stay up is barking up the wrong tree.

The Bulls defended heroically but were absolutely clueless in attack. A litany of dropped passes and aimless kicks. Matty Blythe was my Bulls Man of the Match, followed by Brett Kearney and tackling machine James Donaldson. We  never really looked like scoring but we got a rousing bout of team spirit going in the second half.

 

I suspect that Hull KR fans will be happy with the result but not the performance. Their team can't afford to blow chances like they  did today against strong teams. What they do have is a set of four good props.

Commentary team on BCB called it similar. Said the Bulls wouldn't score if they played til midnight.
