Reckon the Chronicler is nearer the mark here.
It depends what Rovers side turns up for mine.

It could depend on which Greg Eden turns up.

Hull KR we're not great. A good team, sorry a team could have taken them apart today, they are or looked a tad limited today. Mind you they hardly had to put their brains in gear which probably explains it.

Tend to agree with this but its just aswell they didnt play out of their skins. Had they not blown a few more good oportunities they could have pushed

up towards 80 as it was. Just when you think you have got the worst of it out of the way we somehow seem to be able to find an even more dire performance. 

You could certainly see who is staying and who is`nt on yesterdays showing. 

A couple of crumbs of comfort in the form of Wicks and Thomas`s effort on the day. Joe G quite rightly picked up on this in his post match press conference.

Thought Wallace did ok whilst on with a couple of decent offloads and some hard running.

 Good to see Tony R at the ground yesterday. The worst of the performances have not been under his stewardship this term.

 

Still the owner has nearly got a "full house" for the season. 

all be it not of  the kind he would have hoped for,needless to say.

Next year will not be much better for London fans. Hughes has recruited badly again and in a key area....as such, I believe 4th in the division and 8th in the middle 8 is the best they can expect.

Coach who is surrounding himself with mates. The latest is a retiree who spent his last 2 senior seasons getting hammered at cronulla and has been a miner for 2 years

A coach who was due to be assistant until then end of the season, but then had to step up, inheriting a shambles of a team and players who neither believe in any sort of club culture or want to be part of a losing team. I am sure you will agree, it was always going to be a tough gig.

 

The coach has now taken the initiative and made ruthless employment decsions. He understands what sort of people he needs to compete in the Championship and if that happens to be players he has previously coached or is familiar with then so be it. It’s on his head next year, plain and simple.

 

To run him down at this early stage shows an embarrassing naivety on your behalf.

I have little faith in any employee taken on by Hughes but am happy......nay flipping delighted to be proven wrong when it comes to grima, although why my stance needs to be slagged off as naive I am unsure? The latest Spanish Aussie signed banished from cronulla a first team after 2011 and then retired a year later. He has plies his trade as a miner of late and whilst that might twang some traditional heart string, to me it's a major concern.
As for my naivity......I have yet to be wrong about Hughes, his decision
Making or the performance of his employees.......and I don't believe I am now

Ive long since been done with Mr Hughes and am willing to give Mr Grima the benefit of the doubt,but this would be one step too far.
