Wish I had a quid for everytime the commentators mentioned Billy Slater is getting a bit tiresome now.

The replays on the BBC have been terrible. A severe lack of cameras compared to sky.

One game this weekend, poor RL WC promo at HT. prob as much their fault as RFLs.

The BBC obviously care not, for RL. Time for a new broadcaster please!

Great game by eden today

How on Earth has Dobson been selected as MoM ahead of Eden?

Oh well, that was always the likely outcome even before the red card.

 

Maybe this further lack of achievement will push us towards making the signings that we so desperately need, though I'd be amazed if anyone is brought in before the start of 2014 so i guess for the second year in a row we're writing the season off at an early stage.

 

A big congratulations to Hull KR who were worthy winners today.

Cracking game, fair play to saints to make a game of it. Hull kr might sneak into a semi, good looking crowd and atmos coming across on telly.

Don't see the issue with the WC promo, surely anything is better than nothing. A decent mention before, during and after the CC games on the BBC is worth millions in terms of commercial exposure.

At HT, it was terrible! It wasn't the most inspiring story. It shoulda been the biggest advert the RFL has ever made. Not just for the fact it is World Cup year and the roll a successful one is so valuable to next year and any viewing potential sponsors, investors, I can go on.

Are we an exciting sport for a new world, cause all that story left me thinking is, hmm WC in 195.. whatever year. Oh, look at all that old coverage, how nice.

when it should of had music, NRL footage, interviews, explosions, ........ and anything better than explosions!

The worst part of it all....

effectively it is one of the fewest op's the sport gets to advertise for free to its largest audiences of each year to come up with the advertisement of their lives.

Both RFL and BBC should be ashamed!

Thank Christ it was such a good game.

Great game, good crowd and a Execellant effort from the 12 men of saints. Just wish dave woods would stop with the silly Greg Eden comparisons with billy slater, it's really annoying and does no favours for Greg Eden who is developing into a good player. Also the video ref replays took to long.

Nobody can say what the outcome would have been if Meli had stayed on but Saints being a man light on the left was a crucial factor in Hull KR's two second half tries. I really think Saints were gaining the upper hand before the sending off.

Aye you're not wrong, I'm probably being too pesimistic about it all.  It's just frustrating seeing the same kind of performances with the same issues every time.

With 2 such evenly matched teams, nd a decent crowd, that was very enjoyable. Actually, I am happy with the WC mentions. One of the biggest hurdles we face as a sport is a lack of wider appreciation that we have a glorious history.

Eden is a one man excitement machine - as likely to give away a try as save one or make one. With him, Patterson, Burns and Hobson, they provide great entertainment.

It would be wonderful for Hudgell to have a cup run to relish. If Wire/Leeds/Wigan/Giants play each other, who knows how far they could go?

sorry, it's just that I cant believe we are settling for anything is better than nothing. 

 

Totally agree.

yes and it wouldn't do any harm to have a couple of huge pitch ads promoting it as well.

Very good game , The Greg Eden show really, HKR could have won that a lot more comfortably If they had taken the right options with the passes, Congrats to Saints who put in a good second half, but they need to clean up their game somewhat. Well done HKR a deserved win.

Good game, thoroughly enjoyed it. And we appear to, at last, have at least one ko time for the WC - England - Australia 2.00 pm, Cardiff.

Not sure of the error count but Saints didn't help themselves. Whether the sending off made the difference is open to debate. Still, very entertaining and well done KR. Crowd just under 4,500. First time in 18 years that the Saints have gone out in their first match in the Cup.

The amount of possession and position that Hull K R had they should have won by at least twenty points. The send off was a big factor in deciding the winners IMO.

I'm not one to get into under reporting/over reporting conspiracies but if that crowd was under 4500 I'm a monkeys uncle! I think the rfl will be saying the same thing when hull kr try and give them their supposed share if the gate!

good looking crowd

Eh?  :O  Oh I see. You mean as in the number of people there.

 

And what about the "technical difficulties" in the 2nd half meaning we couldn't hear Ganson?

 

Was it a case of him saying "Turn that bloody microphone off" as he was cheering for Saints?
