Warrington hung in there and fair play to them.

That dropped ball over the line and the forced play by Hall cost them in the end, but a good close hard fought game, and not grubby either.

More of that tonight please !!

Thought KR made to many mistakes with try opportunities, and to many unforced errors, a little more application and thought and they win that game.

Are KR fans worried that after last week and this game that a trend could be setting in, with what is to come in the next few fixtures they need to address these mistakes and soon.

Some of the usual more unthinking members of the Hull KR fanbase are yes, but that's a disease you'll never eradicate!

Overall I think last night's performance was really positive. We've a lot of new players so defensive resilience in particular will take time to bed in, both edge defensive units are new for example but we know from last season that Peters' builds good defence so that will come. On the errors front, it's game #4 in poor conditions, so again I expect to see that improve over time and with better weather.

What really stood out for me was when we weren't on the back foot after mistakes, and had possession, you could start to see clearly what Peters' attacking structure is for this year, and why we've recruited who we have. We're much, much stronger in the middle than the Smith era squads, and when we get a roll on there the spine of Litten/Parcell supported by Lewis and May is perfect to take advantage of the chaos around the ruck. Having two decisive "footballers" in the halves who can play what they see is the right set-up for that. That need for rapid mobility is probably why Abdul isn't here this season. 

I think Rovers look much stronger this year, not the finished article yet but a step in the right direction. Warrington are a good, well-organised side who had a completion rate of 91% last night with a good long kicking game at the end of it. There's no shame in losing by 2 points to them, I don't expect us to win every game this season (unlike those other fans I was talking about at the start of this...)

We came 4th last year with a 16/11 record. Think we can improve that ratio with this team... I was never expecting to win the League Leaders' Shield!!

Surely that is a normal media point for that game last night? Both are contenders trying to break the big 3 who have come close recently.

Yes and it's embarrassing to pretend that the same hasn't been true of Huddersfield during previous false dawns.

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.

Precisely. What the media want to talk about, for understandable reasons, it's not the same thing as how a club sees itself. I see nothing but humility coming out of the Hull KR organisation. Ambitious and with expectations to improve, yes, but humble and fully aware it's all about the journey not thinking you've arrived somewhere. 

To be honest coming 4th again won't be easy, and I'd be pretty happy with that. We need to build consistency, I've no interest in Rovers being a one- or two-season-wonder. If it takes a couple of years to win something and we do then great, but to be honest I'm much more interested in being consistently competitive over the long term, to build a club not just a short-term team.
