Actually I thought this game was pretty enjoyable, but then I would say that. Thought we played some pretty good stuff – always easier when the pressure is off – and scored some exciting tries. I agree, we did control the game well when we went ahead and made the most of the opportunities we created, I don’t think you could say the same for Hull. In the opening half hour they could have killed the game off and never got close to doing so. A few people around me were questioning just why Hull persist with Radford, and I have to say I agree. At the moment, it’s not hard to see these two teams meeting again in the middle 8 next year unless something changes at the KC.
As for us, well it’s just good to enjoy watching RL again – players seem to be enjoying it too.
Hull were bigger than us and faster at the PTB - but the Bulls were like snapping terriers round their heels and never gave up.. a joy to see.
The players enjoying it is a big step forward and hasn't been the case for too long..
I feel sorry for Radford - not heard of the rumoured "rebellion" before this thread - but he has nowhere near enough experience to coach at this level yet.
I was amazed when he was appointed in the first place!
Taking the career paths of Lowes, McDermott, Anderson and Powell as a comparison - Radders is missing out a good few years of his apprenticeship.
