    Why have you brought this up. This talk of subbuteo alongside my midlife crisis is very dangerous. If in twelve months my spare room is decked out with a fully set up subbuteo pitch complete with stands and floodlights It will be your fault Mr Evans.

    But they chose to wear the shirt of the jameaters. Can we dispense with all the sentiment and support the lads that want to wear the Town shirt. Miller & Shacks will celebrate in front of us with Newts & squarepants if they win. I'd rather be talking of the pride Jason will be feeling taking the field in his testimonial shirt. Here is a lad who's been with us in more thin times than thick and still gives his all. I'm sure today's victory will be as sweet as any if we can sneak it. UTT

    It's easier to sing that one than to invent the "You're down to 12 and have been decent but ultimately tiredness is kicking it and we're running away with the score" one.

    How enjoyable was that ?? Not saying all our problems are solved, but how good was it to see : Passing the ball, Forwards taking the ball up more than the wingers, 40-20 attempts, a decent kicking game, stoic defence and no 'superstar' chat-back or stupid late-hit penalties............ Thought it was a committed, disciplined performance that offers much promise of better things to come.............. Batley were poor, let's not lose sight of that, but WOW what a great start to the Easter break. To pinch a phrase "onwards & upwards"

    Don't know what the official crowd today was but doesn't this make a refreshing change (that's not the Leigh end either)? No-one knows the potential for Salford because they've had 30-odd years of bang mediocrity.

    Part of the reason you were a gum shield is so you don't bite your tongue. Barlow played the ref like a fiddle today. Sam gee was a stand out player for me today. George Tyson was good when he got in the game but he doesn't get enough use at centre would be much better used at second row. Overall good game but we should have closed the game off in the first half

    If you dont send off players for those tackles then you will suddenly see an increase of tackles at the top of the ball that end up in the players face. It will help him whem it comes to the judiciary but it was a red all day long.

    Top of the ladder and above soccer. Seems like their efforts to keep fans and engage with them more haven't gone unnoticed. 11 April 2017 Hull Kingston Rovers have been ranked as the top team in England in the annualSport Social Media Index, which grades all 146 professional football, rugby league, rugby union and cricket teams according to their social media performance. To be ranked top of an overall league table usually dominated by football clubs is great recognition for the Robins communication staff, receiving an overall score of 75.5 out of a possible 100, narrowly nudging Sheffield Wednesday (75.25) into second. Data for the Sport Social Media Index was analysed up to 1st September 2016. Rovers have been steadily rising through the ranks since the Sport Social Media Index was started four years ago and achieved an overall placing of 29th in 2015 before rising to claim the top spot in the 2016 rankings. The annual Index is compiled by measuring the social media performance of each team based, not just on an algorithm, but research from a team who looked at eight social media networks. Another notable rugby performance was from Saracens who reached 5th place in the table with 74.42 points. London Irish were 20th with 70.17 and St Helensplaced equal 26th with Huddersfield Giants on 69.42. The Index, produced by social media agency Umpf – and partnered once again by William Hill – includes an overall table of all 146 teams ranked top to bottom, plus nine additional tables showing rankings based on each sporting league. Rachel Clayton from Umpf, one of the Sport Social Media Index judges, said: “Hull KR achieved an excellent quantitative data score, largely due to high levels of on-page engagements in relation to the size of their social community. “They demonstrated a tailored approach to both social media asset design and channel-specific content and produced excellent behind-the-scenes footage, such as exclusive Snapchat content. They are well-deserved winners of this year’s overall table.” The 2016 Rugby League Table 1/ Hull KR (1) 2/ Warrington Wolves (3) 3/ St Helens (26) 4/ Huddersfield Giants (27) 5/ Leeds Rhinos (31) 6/ Hull FC (36) 7/ Salford Red Devils (39) 8/ Wigan Warriors (43) 9/ Widnes Vikings (71) 10/ Catalans Dragons (84) 11/ Castleford Tigers (85) 12/ Wakefield Wildcats (137)

    So, to sum it up: We lose against a team that has lost the last 8 matches, we concede 20 points against a team that had scored only 50 points in 8 matches; and score 4 points against a team that had conceded over 300 points in 8 matches .... OK Dewsbury have a new coach and are motivated. But any player that is not motivated in a derby match like this should have a long hard look at himself in the mirror. And that's nothing to do with the coach..

    If the receiver is in front of the passer when the ball is released then he's offside and hence a penalty. Seen a fair few given over the years. Aussie refs always seemed more at ease to penalise such an act than English ones..

    No it was a red, no attempt to get his shoulder in, yes the arm came up off the ball but the tackler has the responsibility to be in control of the tackle and he obviously wasn't, good call imo

    a poor haven side got off the hook today , we were short of muscle upfront and I thought it would be difficult without davies and curwen who have both been solid in recent games , truth is it wasnt all that difficult as town showed in the second half , haven are there for the taking but in order to take them you have to ge the basics right , this didnt happen in a shoddy first 40 mins and 16-0 was always going to be a mountain to climb , but town ran up that mountain like mountain goats in the second half only to lose by a individual error by a player who was one of our best over the previous 75 minutes and haven got out of jail . Size is needed in the pack although scholey was his usual immense self , curwen was a big miss and davies is a huge loss , rooke has pace but ive said before he needs to work on his defence , fell ? the jury is out on that one and give him a bit more time but after 2 games he hasnt been a patch on tee , we need him back sooner rather than later if we are going to push into the top 5 or 6 . three weeks to patch up and get the lads chomping at the bit , dicipline should be the main focus and the rest will follow .

    Good collective team performance today even though I think we let them back into the game in the second half.The boys looked "together" which was heartening, My personal MOM was Sam Gee,thought he had a stormer.Good to get the win and the points.

    I'm so sorry that you couldn't join us today to enjoy the celebrations PM. I note from the after match speech that Ned praised everyone but himself, saying that his input had been minimal. An interesting contrast to the previous incumbent wasn't it?

    You missed a real solid performance Nick. Defence was superb today containing repeat sets for Batley time after time. It was obvious for all to see the lift in spirit in the players. Scored a fabulous try after passing not seen at the club for two years. Batley really looked out of sorts and I can't remember how many times they passed the ball to nobody. Great start for Neil Kelly and the lads. Onwards and upwards. By the way James Glover MOM and truly deserved.

    After 18 months of being very positive about Hull I'm just starting to revert to type as a Hull fan and start to think last season was a flash in the pan. Same mistakes over and over again week after week. Leeds will run away with this.

    Statistics are just one tool of many available to a coaching team. You can use them with intelligent interpretation and understanding of context, or be dictated to by them, and fail.

    Well done Dewsbury. Thoroughly deserved. A little disappointed in our performance but a derby is a derby and to be honest I've expected this all week.

    Suspect Wigan will go on to win this with a bit of something to spare thanks to the extra man, but perhaps the lasting memory will be our first glimpse of a possible future star in Regan Grace.

    Maybe the agreement with the beeb is that they don't show SL clubs in the streamed early rounds to avoid belittling the SL competition. The aim may be to help publicise the lower league clubs.

    Or Take that - Back for good. If Ned re-signs Thacks - return of the magnificent seven If he re-signs Thacks, Wildie and Bostock - the good, the bad and the ugly And as you and BSJ have been overlooked .... Thank heavens.
