well deserved victory that, if they had lost they would have been robbed by the video refs.


What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

Rubbish

 

There was only one dodgy VR decision and that went in KR's favour.

No. Realistic.

 

I watched without a passion for either side, you didn't.

 

It shows in your posts that you were not objective.

Hull KR on overall performance I would say deserved the game, if they had lost it would have been their own making and not anything to do with officials.

 

They were on top for a lot of the game, they had HullFC on the rack for much of the game, but it would n't have been a travesty for FC to win.

We weren't the better side, but God knows where the ref got that Whiting touched the ball. Clear to all.

Dodgy calls all night. Although to be fair, I couldn't see half the game from the Amsterdam Stand anyway. No lights. No speakers. Might as well not have been there.

the calls weren't dodgy, they were difficult, they tended, in my opinion,  to be right where it was a try decider. Some others didn't get sent upstairs and where run of the mill every day fifty fifty ref did his best on these calls.

 

FC were out-enthused from my point of view.

Think dropping Heremaia was a mistake from Radford. He brings us a different style when we need it, and we did need it. Radford has brought more effort out of the side, it's pretty clear. But he needs to sort out his selection policy.

KR played a scooting style all game, and it worked. Hull's defence behind the ruck was shocking at times. Overall, they were the better team.

On Monday, I'd like to see Crooks back in the side and Yeaman dropped as well.

Just watched the game back and the only one I could see they got wrong was the alleged touch by Whiting on the drop goal attempt. I thought the side view showed pretty clearly that there was no contact. Still, some go for you some go against you.

Rovers wanted it more than Hull, that was fairly obvious from the start.

 

Heremiah should have been in the squad, that was surely obvious to any Hull fan.

 

Put these two conclusions together and what do you get?

 

Oh, and how on Earth the decision was made that Whiting was any where near touching the ball on that drop goal attempt amazes me.

Hull FC were at least 2 yards offside anyways so justice was done.

I don't know about Heremaia, mate. He's looked uncharacteristically flat in the last couple of games. I wouldn't be surprised if he's carrying an injury.
