simply awful performance but a good show of character.
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.

Well, another Thursday night thriller.

Harsh on FC but they clearly have a lot of talent -.they just need to find themselves a Maguire and they will be in the mix.

I thought Hauraki's.knee to the head was horrible. He had a choice between trying to stand up or knee the young lad in the head. I hope no.serious damage was done. I don't follow the logic that they could not penalise it because they had gone on a tackle. 

Cracking match though and the draw was a fair result.

Not sure we will ever know if he meant it but if he did he should miss the rest if the season

Whether he meant it or not I think he could be on the sidelines for a few weeks.

As one of the commentators said, he new Abdull was underneath and he therefore had a duty of care for the players safety.

It was incredibly reckless if it wasn't intentional. It added insult to injury to penalise Hull straight after as well. Literally the first tackle.

That's both half backs injured. We may see Miller again...

Hull ripped the ball what was he supposed to do?

Quite possibly the worst scenario for me.

 

The Hull crowd got behind the team and most seemed daft enough to think Cas were competitive but we were better. Cas were inept in the first 60 mins or so and during that period Childs only ever saw offences against Hull. Once Cas started chucking the ball about a bit we were struggling, particularly down Whiting's side although it pains me to say that.

 

Then Cas nearly nicked it at the death and it's all the Ref's fault, so no ill feeling left over for Radford apparently.

 

As for the Hauraki incident on Abdull, it looked like Hauraki was frustrated at not being able to get up quickly, possibly due to Abdull already being injured but the Cas man's knee movements only made things worse and could get him in a fair bit of trouble. Abdull has been taken to hospital with what's been reported as a bad neck injury, if the RFL decide Hauraki's actions played any part in that then he may well miss the rest of the season.

 

Some decent entertaining stuff from Cas at the end, I hope they can get a bit more consistency in the next few games and have a good crack at the RL cup semi and possible final.

Cas below par. Good physical effort by hull.

That's the weakest refereeing performance I've ever seen. A ref has duty of care for all players on the park.

He allowed rubbish in the tackle and play the ball throughout the whole game. Could not control the 10 yards.

By the time we reached the knee incident he had lost control of those basics - for me he takes responsibility for that incident. Unacceptable level of performance from a top flight official.

That was one of his best this season..

 

You obviously never saw him that time at Wheldon Road (vs Harlequins ??), when the match commissioner dragged him off at half time under the pretence of a sprained ankle.

Apparently concussion and whiplash.  From what was seen on TV I can't see how Hauraki could cause whiplash as his knee just didn't move enough for that and Abdul was already on the floor.  Maybe he was injured going down in the tackle?  But I'm no medic.

Like I said,I did wonder if Abdull's injury had been caused before Hauraki's "efforts" but if you've suffered concussion, the last thing you need is somebody deliberately flailing around with their knees whilst they're in contact with you.

 

Hauraki may not have known Abdull was in such a bad way but that's no defence and I think he'll cop a ban.

You blame the referee for the knee to the head of a trapped player? Wow.

The incident was more or less in front of where we sit and I didn't think there was anything in it at first. Just looked like Hauraki was scrambling to get to his feet. Having seen the replay he's definitely got a case to answer. He looks at Abdull before bringing his knee down on his head so he's clearly aware of where his opponent is. Reckless or malicious I don't know but clearly dangerous.

It's to be hoped you don't get snared by any random drug testing later.

I've never failed a dope test.

 

I just flash my Hull FC season ticket.

Have to agree, you see him look down at the FC player then knee him. As usual the RFL will bottle it and give him 2-3 games when he should get 8 for a deliberate knee to the head of another player. Shocking incident.

Fortunately it looks like Abdull's injury is not as bad as originally feared, he may even play against Saints next week.
