    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..

    Kind of sums up Cunninghams rein. This kid has been missing out due to Jack bloody Owens.

    I see Grace was an Ospreys academy player. Presumably deemed too small for RU. Their loss. Must be some rich fruit to be harvested down there.

    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

    Bradford bulls riding roughshod over another club, who'd have thought eh with their impeccable reputation... oh sorry that was a different Bradford Bulls or was it a different one to the one I'm thinking of... so hard to keep up!

    It's incredible that a team that's only won 2 of their last 30 games can pull 21K to a home game.

    I thought the quality of the game,the decisions from the officials,and the commentary team were all on a par with each other.

    Why does it matter where the first contact is? He swung one arm wildly and ended up hitting him in the face. if Marshall had ducked he would have hit him in the head initially. In any case, I am sure every Saints fan would agree we would have won against 13 as we have better players. Which must be some consolation.

    Great team performance today, Adam Neal outstanding, Langer's big hit awesome.Sammy Gee's best performance for a long time,horrible team Swinton niggly,dirty whining set of players. Even Swinton fans dont want Barlow playing for them according to some in the social after the game. Brilliant 2 points for us, let's follow up with a big performance on Monday. Proud of the lads today. Up the Yeds!

    Fantastic performance from an injury ravaged team. Refs are obsessed with penalising teams in possession and one of those such penalties and two very lucky KR touch downs cost Fev a famous victory.

    Credit where its due. The best team by far won today. Well done Dewsbury.

    I have to agree with doggystyle about Leak .All the time spent in the Dewsbury 20 in the second half I'm sure he would have converted into a score at least I am a fan of Davey but I think Leaky takes the team forward better and his work rate in defence is not to be questioned.The stats this year and last speak for themselves .He isn't getting enough time in my opinion Today was a really bad day at the office and things have to change quickly or the season will get away on us .Thats for the coach to sort out and he needs to get them back to winning ways but they look a shadow of last years team !!

    Million times better 2nd half. If that was there 1st half it wouldnt have been close. When we realised we could attack calvert and mcavoy at will we opened them up time and again. Gutted for doran as he was our best player on the day. You cant perform like that 1st half and win games against anyone

    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 this is woeful. Im afraid we can blame the referee all day but we just have no clue with Brambani not playing. I really am disappointed in the way some of the players have performed today. Diskin now needs to sort this out and fast because if he doesn't this season is going to be a long and painful one. Well done Dewsbury. Fantastic performance and thoroughly deserved.

    Iirc Moran was a shareholder but took over as things had progressed. His role in the new stadium is as irrelevent as Parky's post bringing him up. But hey he has now decided that transfer fees are in effect breaches of the cap so he has another hilarious soundbite in the form of a nickname so expect to see it mentioned plenty.

    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.

    It was barely even a yellow, the initial impact wasn't high, was actually on the ball and it went up. Refs ruined this game.

    I did say eccentric! I am willing to alter it and am open to suggestions, after all, I did spend nearly ten minutes coming up with and posting this plan. More open to question - how do you get regular internationals, that are profitable?

    Yes. But it feels cruel for the effort Newcastle put in in the 2nd half. By the way, great games of footy this morning. Really enjoying this Good Friday.

    Top post. No doubt about it. They'll be gloating in front of the popular side no doubt if they win. So no sentiment the other way at all. Concentrate our praise on the players we have got!

    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.
