  1. I think Justin Holbrook got to Castleford early and nipped to see Luke Gale's barber!
  2. I'll stick my neck out and say Wakey win! Cas have had loads of ball and made very little. If the 'rub' evens out trinity might just nick it.
  3. Wakey getting nothing.

    Agreed, halves generally are some of the worst tacklers in the comp. I only objected at the time when told by Old Frightful that he was one of the best tacklers at Hull. I demonstrated at the time that he is one of the worst not only at Hull but in the entire SL. I stated prior to the last Leeds/Hull game 7 weeks ago that as a Leeds fan, I didn't deem facing Hull without Kelly as much of an advantage because of his defensive fragility. I suspect Old Frightful was elated because Kelly certainly put me in my box based on last nights performance.

    Old Frightful! Yes my man! I love a good old dig and I am happy to get it in the neck from time to time. Old elephant memory, I love it! You have been waiting 7 weeks to come at me with your cold dish of revenge! Fair play! Kelly was very impressive last night he really was. I will concede he played a blinder and his input was sufficient to change the course of the game. His stats don’t lie!! He walked of the pitch with 3 try assists for goodness sake! I never questioned Kelly’s ability going forward just that he was a little loose in defence. For those that don’t remember, you stated that Kelly was one of the best tacklers at Hull and I demonstrated with stats that he wasn’t. Houghton was mentioned at the time because he is an example of a capable tackler. Whilst I do love a good old dig and I love stats being thrown around, you really do need to pay attention to the details….. When quoting last night’s stats, I assume you confused Marker Tackles for Missed Tackles? Houghton made 46 tackles and missed 2 (not 7 as you quoted) which is missing just over 4%. Kelly made 24 tackles and missed 2 (not 1 as you quoted) which is just over 8% missed. So the point you tried to emphasise doesn’t work, Houghton was twice as efficient as Kelly in that regard. That said if Kelly could maintain that level of performance every week including 3 try assists you would win the league. But he won’t and you won’t. In the 7 weeks you have been festering Kelly has made 117 tackles and missed 24. That is more than 1 in 5 tackles he has missed or 21%. So the turnstile form continued. In the same 7 weeks Houghton has made 143 tackles and missed FOUR. That is less than 3%! So whilst the sun shines on a dogs ar*e some days don’t expect it next week. As I have already posted; congratulations on the win. It was a close entertaining game, not the result I expected given the form of the respective sides however it was the result we deserved. Onwards and upwards and I genuinely hope we share two more league games this year.

    Credit to Hull, you ran out deserved winners yesterday and if the typically reliable left boot of Sneyd didn’t go missing you would have won it with a bit to spare. I thought Thaler was consistent with both teams but I also agree with many on here that the ‘gamesmanship’ at the ruck is getting too much along with the tolerance permitted when slowing down the PTB. Kelly finally turned up this week and played a blinder, he was the difference. Houghton and Taylor were also standout for sure. I am not too disappointed that we lost again as I don’t think we played badly in defeat. I am pleased for Hull that they have got the monkey of their backs and finally beaten us in the league. It may well be the catalyst to kick start your year. I enjoy the rivalry with you up at the top.

    I had worked that bit out Terry! I was really saying flesh it out, what has happened for you to publicly make a statement like that?

    All four scores are connected to a Handley mistake.

    Golding Briscoe Watkins Handley Hall Moon Myler Delaney Parcell Cuthbertson JJB Ward Ablett Mullally Ferres Smith Oledzki Delaney is down as a prop on the team sheet! Geez we are so light up front to start the game, that must be a tactic to come out quick and fast.

    I think Hull have been bang average this year by their recent high standards. In recent years they have been a hot or cold team but this year seems to be different, even when winning they have not been convincing. Whilst Leeds have already failed to win 4 games I don't think we have had a bad day at the office yet. We got soundly beaten by Widnes admittedly but were missing around 9 starting 17 players. I think we were the better team against Cas and Wigan when losing by a point and we outscored the Giants in the draw. The weather is fantastic and Hull like to throw the ball around just like we do, so we could be in for a belter. I thought something similar last week against Wigan though and we played with 4 forwards on the bench and very conservative rugby. Thaler is the ref so we should get a smooth and fair match. Leeds are missing three starting 17 props and young Walker which is a slight concern and Hull have some bodies back but I think we will still have too much for them. Leeds by 8 in a 50 point classic!

    Sam Tomkins to Catalans?

    He was the highest paid player in the SL when he left for the NRL and was on circa $700K (£350K) whilst there. He came back after 2 years of a 3 year contract and Wigan paid back 1/3 of the fee they received for him. It is fair to assume his contract will be similar to that of the NZ Warriors given the marquee rule had kicked in by his return. I agree he doesn't offer any value for money at that level but he would still improve most teams.
