This is the sort of game the Bulls should be targeting if we want any chance of staying up, so I'd expect to see an improvement. I still think we will lose though, Hull KR is a tough away match at the best of times. Really can’t see where our next league points are coming from to be honest.

Dont see anything but more pain for the Bulls here, KR have shown against Wigan and Giants in a first and second half how strong they can be, When they manage a full game on song they will be good ,  Bradford looked the worst Iv'e seen them last week, which with everything going on is not surprising. Hope it's a good game but i fear for Bradford.

HKR hard to beat at home , to win fairly easily

I agree they should win but can we still say that about a team who haven't won at home since July 2013 and have conceded over 60 points in their two home games so far this season?

 

If they lose today they really will be sweating. The only thing keeping them out of the relegation places this morning is Bradford's points deduction.

We desperately need to play Hull at home!

I'm not sure that would help. You haven't beaten Hull at home for three years.

Maybe the bulls should change their famous bully bully song to the old status quo song down down deeper & down.

Wasn't there today, but Foster was out before kick off with sickness, Diskin and Sidlow went off injured during the match, and no pack whatsoever, I'm surprised Rovers only scored three times.

I said it above, if we don't get a Super League win before Easter then we're pretty much done for as we've got a run of Leeds, Wigan, Warrington, Saints and Huddersfield and we are pretty much at the halfway point then. Next two up are Widnes and Salford and I don't think we'll get anything out of those either. Anyone still thinking we'll stay up is barking up the wrong tree.

Balls.  They are changing the rules to suit London again.  You get your own set of lackeys.

The Bulls defended heroically but were absolutely clueless in attack. A litany of dropped passes and aimless kicks. Matty Blythe was my Bulls Man of the Match, followed by Brett Kearney and tackling machine James Donaldson. We  never really looked like scoring but we got a rousing bout of team spirit going in the second half.

 

I suspect that Hull KR fans will be happy with the result but not the performance. Their team can't afford to blow chances like they  did today against strong teams. What they do have is a set of four good props.

Commentary team on BCB called it similar. Said the Bulls wouldn't score if they played til midnight.

I was very pleased with the spirit shown by the Bulls, the pride in the line was obvious with at least four players held up over the line. Losing two forwards in the first quarter from an already weak pack made it 'mission impossible' to be fair and the Bulls never stopped the KR roll nor got one going of their own. It's probably correct to say we wouldn't have scored if we'd played until midnight, but you need the big men in the pack to lay the platform and create the space for the halves to exploit and sadly we don't really have enough those at the club right now and especially so after the first 20 mins yesterday.

 

I agree Gale didn't kick well, but he was always under pressure from a dominant Rovers pack so it's hardly a shock that he found their defender most times, he barely had time to look up before getting the kick away. The team really came together in the second half - does Donno ever stop running!! Much as they won, I'd guess the Rovers coach would maybe have more questions of his players - only four points against a side with only two interchanges for an hour - than Francis Cummins.

 

Whatever the result, no-one can doubt the Bulls' players' committment to the cause.
