Look. He didn't deserve to be sent off.

I'm a troll and you're really boring.

Good night sir.

A Hull FC fan who is simple, but not that thick, though really boring moans that the referee not sending off a Hull FC player cost his team the game :huh:

Yes you are right. There was no difference at all in what Manu and Lauaki did.

Jesus we were ###### tonight. Well played to Rovers, tactically perfect display tonight.

The only shining light is once again tonight Tom Briscoe just looked like superstar material again this week.

That sums it up pretty well, Hull KR showed great enthusiasm throughout where as FC showed virtually none. FC's organisation was also appalling, the Horne/Long halfback pairing couldn't have gone much worse, maybe Horne got flustered by the big hits they put on him early on. Long was off the pace completely, with all his playoff experience I would've expected better than that. After this was dubbed as the biggest Hull derby for over twenty years it turned out to be a bit disappointing really. Congratulations to Hull KR though, no doubt that they deserved that result.

A troll? Manu lined him up and flattened him. Straight red card for an attack to the head. Incompetence from Bentham to not even have it reviewed. Some great legal hits throughout the game.

Absolute rubbish. Manu was caught by the step and stuck his arm out but almost straight away tried to pull it back knowing what was going to happen. Watch it again, when he hit Cockayne, he was already trying to pull away from the hit.

Good to see Rovers win the "chav city" derby. The scoreline flattered hull tonight, they were never really in that game. Their fans cried like babies when they had to play with 12 men last week but even with 14 men (including bentham) they didn't look much better. Well done Rovers, with a kicking game as good as theirs they're always in with a chance.

I agree with your assessment that we were never in the game. Shame it's overshadowed by your bitterness about last week shining through.

Spot on Pete. We got beat by a good team tonight. Agar simply has to go. Individually, our players should be better but as a team, we can't compete with anybody. Shame Kath and Rule thought Dobson not worth signing. He looks good to me.

I am a Wigan fan and thought Manu should have been sent off.

It's around 65:20 on the game clock if you want to review it again.

I've done just that as there seems to be a bit of a kerfuffle about it.

You're talking out of your backside. Bentham got it spot on.

Horne played full-back for almost the entire game.

I thought that, but for a 15 minute spell just after half-time, Rovers pretty much bossed the game tonight and were good value for the win.

No doubt about it, Hull were badly disrupted by Craig Hall's early injury and the ensuing re-shuffle, but I thought Rovers were really focused tonight and would have won regardless.

Our kick-chase game was spot-on throughout...our goal-line defence was magnificent when called upon...while we displayed more controlled aggression than I have seen for some time.

What happens next? Well I fear next week (whoever we play) may be a game too far, but next season should be interesting.

The club opted this year not to utilise approx

The banter is rife on Twitter, even Lord Prescott has been joining in. A few of us have started a 'Hull KR Facts' tweets. Some good ones are as follows:

Hull KR facts: They bang on about being the 'Pride of East Hull' but they were originally a West Hull club.

Hull KR facts: their ground Caravan Park is on Poorhouse Lane and used to be a stable.

Hull KR Facts: Rovers crowds numbers correspond directly with the weekend detention rate at local prisons.

Hull KR facts: East Hull is actually an annexe of Lancashire and therefore deserves scorn.

Hull KR facts: Every season their shirt design is the exact same one that Wigan rejected as being completely devoid of all taste.

Hull KR facts: To purchase a season pass for next season at this year's prices you have to pay them an extra sixty quid.

Hull KR facts: Holderness Road when translated back into Ancient British means Hopelessness Road

Hull KR facts: Rotterdam is closer to the pitch than their South Stand.

Hull KR facts: In order to buy a season pass you need two forms of ID and an extra toe.

Hull kr facts:if hull fc released a fart hull kr would try and sign it!

Do feel free to join in! :lol:

You lost to the above mentioned team! lol

The off season has started!!!! :lol::lol::lol: ( for you!!!!!)

Poor game this one I'm afraid. Hull KR look too solid for Hull FC who need a new coach a la Michael Maguire. They've got the names they should be better than they are.

You wish you had seen a game as poor as this in the last 17 years! Troll!

Heavens to murgatroyd!

Rugby is getting too soft as it is.

The Manu decision was the right decision. Penalty, no report. Get on with it.

You're not Stevo so stop banging on about refs.

Spot on!

Live we were not even sure it was high. Looked like he hit him on the top of the chest. Anyway reflex as he stepped inside.

Is rugby really getting soft? didn't Shaun Edwards get sent off against Australia for a high tackle where he got stepped inside at Wembley 10 - 20 years ago. Maybe the idea that high shots went unpunished in the past is just brains turning soft and not remembering all the reds that used to be given out.

I didn't mean that rugby was getting soft. I meant the penalty was the right call, nothing more. Never a send off at all.

Hull were completely devoid of any ideas against a professional and committed Rover defence and they had no clue of how to cope with Rovers kicking game. Close Dobson down and the ball goes to Murrell and vice versa. Hull still haven't realised the value of a good YOUNG scrum half after what seems an eternity without one. Sean Long was poor last week and not much better last night. Hull have to see that money used to secure a good young scrum half will be money well spent. Like others I now feel like we missed the boat when Rovers signed Dobson. The Manu/Cockayne incident was what it was. A penalty against a player who was wrong footed. Maybe put on report. Fox should have had ten for his laying on of Briscoe. How people can criticise Richard Horne for being ineffective and not having a good game alongside Sean Long when he played 75 mins at FB baffles me. The best team won by a mile.

Well, we sat and tried to pick the bones out of it in the Polar Bear beer garden afterwards.

All those of you who keep banging on about Richard Horne being Hull's full back, has last night made any difference to your opinions?

Once again, I find myself perplexed by Agar's decisions. We've struggled to get Horne and Long playing together in the halves all season so what happens when Hall limps off? He splits them up again. Why didn't he put Turner at full back with Manu or anybody else in the centre. At least then we would still have had our first choice halves steering us round the park, even though they may still have struggled given Rovers' performance last night.

Rovers fans can be rightly proud of their team today. Their players all look like they're willing to die for each other. Any one of their players last night had more enthusiasm than our entire team. That's got to be the fault of the coach.

Hull FC had better make some swift decisions or they're going to get hit in the pocket next year. We Hull fans are a loyal (yes and stupid maybe) lot, but the patience is now wearing paper thin. Four people sat round our table after the game have insisted they won't be renewing their passes for next season.

Rule and Hetherington must shoulder the blame for this, always going for the cheap option when it comes to appointing coaches. Agar clearly hasn't the respect of the team so go out and offer a king's ransome to somebody who can get the players performing again.

I wonder how much it'd cost to lure Morgan away from Rovers. That would be some coup. ;)

I went to the Freedom Festival afterwards and tried not to think about it. Some of the entertainment down there was fantastic. Those Frenchies sure know their street theatre, Tanse Express and the Plasticiens Volants were a brilliant spectacle. Took my mind off the horror show our team had served up for us.

Fair comment

Rovers had a spell in the second half where they tried very hard to gift Hull a way back into the game. For the second week running (and goodness knows how many times this season) Hull lacked the composure to take advantage. Hull were like rabbits caught in the headlights last night, and didn't have a clue how to cope with the pressure they were put under.

I think you're pretty much spot on mate. Agar's bemoaned the fact that Long and Horne haven't played together then what does he do? Splits them up almost immediately and completely nullifies our attack (which is poor at the best of times). Bonkers!!

Last night was a prefect demonstration of the difference a good coach can make. Morgan prepared his team superbly. We'll never progress on the field until we get things right off the field.

That's about the size of it. He actually caught him at the top of his shoulder/base of his neck. There was no contact with the head.

Penalty, end of story.

The only shining light is once again tonight Tom Briscoe just looked like superstar material again this week.

What a player he is. Also managed to maintain his dignity when that obnoxious sh*t Cockayne was trying to goad a response out of him in the last minute of the game.

To his credit, Briscoe just treated the bell-end with the contempt he deserved.

Was that when Briscoe had just dropped the ball and Cockend shoved him in the back?

Edit. Not sure if he dropped the ball, but Cockend give him an unneccesary shove anyway.

It was actually when play was over at the other side of the field and was just in front of us in the East Stand. Cockend subjected Briscoe to a stream of verbals that seemed to go on for ages. Tom just turned his back on him.

That bloke has got serious issues.

You would imagine coming within a whisker of being jailed might have calmed him down a bit on all fronts but it appears not.

Let's hope if he behaves like that in public soon, he'll end up where he belongs.

i've also just heard Jordan Tansey's been sacked. Not sure of that though. Rumours eh?

For the disruption he caused in the build-up to the most important game of the season, he can f*** off now for me.
