Didn't see the game but well done KR and in particular Tony Smith. Who seems like a bloody good coach and human being.

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Well, well, well. What a performance. I’ve given myself a big slap for the lack of belief earlier in the week. What a season, what a hard-working squad of committed players, led by a humble coach who knows how to find a way despite the odds - just love it. 

Yes, he's humble. He's plenty to be humble about, too. 😀😀

Certainly, more successful at Hull K R as he ever was as National coach.

Definately well done to HKR,  though I felt that if Warrington ever got in gear, they'd zoom away. I waited and waited and waited but it never happened and they got more and more frustrated...and it showed.

Can HKR go all the way? I'd like to think so, if only to see a new name on the trophy and to show others than you CAN rise from obscurity to victory in this sport with the right owner.

Exactly this. 

And from the four teams left HKR are the ones I'd like to see win it.

Have they got two more big games in them? On paper you'd probably say not against Cats and then Saints. 

Unless loiners can somehow  blag their way past Saints......

We’ll see my man, we’ll see.  Amazing how we can be back to back champions and cup holders given our choking isn’t it.

im sure we beat a team called Leeds on the way to winning the cup. As we will next week.

Granted and you are not the same team who were Chokers and it's a different period of time , but you are still hurting from it .

 Soon we will be dancing the fandango

We all want to see our own team win ,but if a team who has not won SL in its present format gets to the GF I.E Wire against a team who has won it other than our own team I would root for Wire for good of the sport

Ah, so that poor lass at the cup semi in the 2000s was not the first girl from Humberside to get pinged by a camera for using her shoe on the pitch.

A pedant writes...It wasn't a Cup SF if I recall, it was a regular league fixture at Craven Park circa 2006/7.

Here she is in all her glory :

England RU Coach Eddie Jones : "I spent a bit of time up at Hull and I like the full back there Connor, he's a tough, skilful player"

Jake Connor : "I've never played Union, it doesn't look that hard, you never say never but it looks too boring for me"

Massively looking forward to this coming week's games now and we're guaranteed a new name at Old Trafford which is great...isn't it? 🤔

And yes, I'm a Hull FC fan and yes, I don't much care for Hull KR, but last night's game was strangely enjoyable, perhaps in a somewhat masochistic way. Seeing the likes of Widdop and Williams completely humbled by Lewis and Abdull made for a great sports story.

I'll save my speculation about whether or not Rervers can do the unthinkable and get to Old Trafford for the match thread but I reckon Thursday's game could well pull in one of Sky's biggest ever viewing audiences for SL.

Oh you are such a tease - you’ll put it behind a paywall like your onlyfans site next!

Well, after sleeping on it, I can confirm I am no calmer and I feel even more angry about the waste of space that we have had coaching us for 4 years.  😆

I am not a sore loser in the slightest, I accept sport is about winners and losers, but first and foremost it is an entertainment business and Price is responsible for the most boring Wire team I have seen in 35 years. Clearly not the worst teams, but I enjoyed the Rugby more when we were a worse team. 

I am delighted for Hull KR and their fans and they are getting what they deserve for hiring Tony Smith. 

I really hope we see a shift in attitudes in SL over the next year or two and clubs remember that they have a responsibility to entertain. Wigan and Wire have been embarrassed and maybe it's the public shaming they deserve and need, both getting nulled at home to bow out to teams who finished below them. Winning at all costs just doesn't turn people on in numbers.

Good riddance to Price, and good luck to both Hull KR and Catalans next week - teams who understand how to play attractive Rugby.

The game was a better spectacle over the period you mention Dave, victories for fans of any club fan can fog how one dimensional the game has become.

The game van still be a good spectacle. When our top teams have the coaches they do it is a problem.

It rankles quite a few rhinos fans that Agar won the cup, and are now in the GF eliminator, too many want him to fail.

None that I've met. It's mostly bitter fans of failing clubs who don't like him for some reason.

I was not surprised when we (Hull KR) were ahead at half time. I just thought we might run out of steam in the last quarter.

When Mikey Lewis scored his amazing try I allowed myself to think we might just have a chance. From that point on we showed superb game management and never looked like losing. 

etc etc

The game management in the 2nd half was outstanding... that period with the short kicks forcing Warrington to drop out from between the post seemed constant. It really wore Warrington down, stopped them having possession and brought their frustration to fever pitch...
