Played decent for 40 last week. Played alright for about 20 this. Can’t wait to see us put an 80 minute performance in. And lost Watts after 15 minutes. Good signs though with JSL and Feki to come in. Eden too if needed when fit.

It seems the home crowd are not entirely satisfied with the ref. 

The commentary on Giants TV suggested the Hull KR fans might like to read up on the rules before embarrassing themselves in future ?

Plenty of effort but we are missing so many key players so we are lacking a lot of quality needed at this level. Our forwards were outmuscled again as well and at times we were having three or four defenders on a ball carrier and still struggling to bring them down.

Four of our next five games are against Wigan, Warrington, Saints and Hull so the other game against Toronto really now is a must win.

I thought Hull KR were on the end of a string of stinkers in the first ten minutes of second half.

Brierley got ten minutes for going shoulder-to-shoulder with a man twice his size; didn't even think it was a penalty. But I am not sure there was an obvious alternative restart since Kendall had blown up with the ball still in play (and yet giving 'no try' - wtf).

Cas were clearly dominant after that and it wasn't really a contest.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

It may have been shoulder-to-shoulder, but Brierley clearly stepped in his line with zero intention of getting the ball and only to block off the potential play. The fact the guy he was fighting with was twice his size is irrelevant IMO.

Hull Kr are quite a poor side aren't they? maybe when the ref's finally start letting them win games they may improve - but till then i'm afraid it will be more 'BOOOOOOOO' from the Robins faithful.

Give over, you can't move into a player and knock him off course, it was an intentional play and quite rightly deserved a sit down.

Agreed. Brierley attempted to impede a player and prevent a try scoring opportunity. It's a textbook professional foul. Even if you want to try and argue that the yellow card was harsh, Brierley was still dumb enough to give the referee a decision to make and, when you do that, you've got little right to argue when he makes one you don't like. 

Castleford were impressive and exciting to watch but having seen KR twice in recent weeks, I think it's fair to say that when you sign Championship players, you end up with a Championship team.

He didn’t change his line, he was running towards the ball in an equal contest for it. Wasn’t a penalty, can’t see that being given in 9/10 other scenarios - but the officials had boxed themselves in, didn’t have any other out having pulled Dagger up from his exit run with clear space ahead of him. Bit embarrassing really 


Cas would clearly have won either way, wearing the middles down in 2nd half (it was inevitable from about minute 21 for all to see), so no sour grapes here - just frustration with daft calls


Thought Rovers showed real ticker in a side with 9 of our 1st 13 missing which most people seem to not notice, especially without 1, 6, 7 and 9. If we can get 2 decent sized forwards in (we’ve cap space), we’ll win enough games. But that’s a big if

That's exactly how it looked to me when you saw the replay from behind the sticks.

But as you say, it would have made little difference to the final outcome.

As a neutral, Brierley should have just gone for the ball rather than the professional foul. He wasn't looking at the ball at all.

As a non-neutral very much leaning to Castleford, I didn't think there was anything in it.

Thanks. Given the obvious significant impact of one side being down to 12 for the 1st 10 mins of a half in a tight contest (scoreboard-wise To then at least), I’d expect it to have to be bloomin’ blatant to give a binning.

Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Just watched the Brierley binning again did look a bit harsh to me. Because Kendall blew up and stopped the game the VR had no choice, if the VR thought it was play on how would you re-start the game? So he had to make that decision regardless. In my opinion of course.

The main point that you are all missing is that it is A Good Thing that Cas are rightfully restored to their natural place at The Top Of The Table. That Cas have played more games is utterly irrelevant.

I thought it was harsh as well and it was such a pivotal moment in the game as Cas then started to dominate field position and scored and then all the momentum was with them from then on.
