The way this is going, one can only imagine what sort of legendary after match interview we may witness.

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

32 years since Henderson Gill did a 'bit of a boogy' in Sydney.

Makes you feel old.  I'm beginning to think my chances of becoming a professional Rugby League player are starting to fade.

That Rovers right edge defence is absolutely shocking.

If Greg Eden can bust your tackle then you might as well find summat else to do.

I was there that day, I tend to think in sepia these days.

Speaking of shocking defences.

Dear me.

If you're older than Jeff Grayshon, then no.

Eden hat-trick - game over, Shirley?

This is rubbish. No intensity in defence, too many errors in attack.

Eden for England, I'm afraid with the circumstances and deciding to back load the season in the hope of getting crowds in that's pretty much how it's going to be, the next game will probably be the same.

I wish they'd cut out this fist-bumping everyone and anyone. I know the players have been tested,  and have just spent 80 minutes in close physical contact but I think they should set a good example by minimising this pointless, stupid and wholly unnecessary activity.

Apart from that, well done  Cas, and a decent if unsuccessful fightback from HKR.

True, just get the season done and hope for better next year... or the year after!

Out of playoff contention,short turnarounds,end of season in sight so we’ll done to both sets of players for their efforts,especially the young lads on debut.

Agree with that. I thought it was pretty entertaining in the circumstances.

Bailey Hodgson certainly didn't look out of place in the winning side.

I agree,if there is one positive to come out of this Sh#t Show of a year it’s the emergence of some quality youngsters who in a normal season might have struggled to make the 1st team.

A good advert for No Relegation.  Or perhaps, No Excuse For No Relegation.

I enjoyed the game but the tackling was very half hearted.

Having no relegation does take away the intensity. 

It's not a problem this year with Covid, as it is great to see any game, but I think long term is different.

I think spitting openly to the ground too is something that is dangerous and needs to be minimised.

In all sports not just rugby league.
