HKRs cup final last week by the looks of things. 

Leeds v Hull

Hull v Hull KR

Leeds v Hull KR

What can you possibly take from those 3 games? Are Leeds actually not a bad side and Hull just played out of their minds against them? Did Hull KR throw the kitchen sink at last weeks game and not have anything left tonight? Did Leeds' week off make a big difference? 

It's a funny game sometimes.

Hill are overrated and will be nowhere come the playoffs. 
 

you read it here first 

Actually I had read it several places before I read it here. 😂 

I'm really encouraged by what Hull have done so far, but we haven't proven anything yet and I am just waiting for the same old frailties to emerge. We will have a much better idea in about 9 days time after playing Saints and Wigan. 

As for this one it will be interesting to see where both clubs go from here. Leeds had a similarly dominant win against Salford last year. We all thought then that Leeds would kick on but they were soon back to being rubbish. It was Salford that kicked on. Only time will tell whether this result is another outlier or not.

Blimey I’d have expected more like 13,000. At this rate of attrition Wigan and Leeds will have sub 10k averages soon.

Didn't Rovers sell out the away end too?

I'd hardly think that Rovers fans would be happy about paying full pops to stand on some crappy terracing behind the posts with no protection from the elements to support their team away from home....

Great performance from Leeds held up over the line 3 times as well. Some great goal line D from Rovers then some sloppy stuff. All in all not a bad nights rugby till some idiots threw bottles on the pitch.

 Leeds are improving I feel.  They will be better this year than last season (not that difficult, to be fair...)  Good to see them improving though - I feel that the league benefits from a strong Leeds.

Hull KR however were a joke last season, and remain an embarrassment.  The 'tackling' from that team is truly abysmal.  They couldnt tackle last year, and this year, they appear to be no different.  They do not act like a professional team at times... they look shambolic.  

Anthony Gelling said on the RFL podcast that he thought that RugbyLeague feels like the lowest form of professional sport, when you compare it to other sports leagues.  He said that sometimes it is hard to believe it is a professional league.  'Performances' like that from Hull KR simply compound what he is saying.  St Helens would have put 90 on them.  Amateurish stuff.
