    I would like Toulouse to come good. It may be different next time but I heard that despite the great promotional video they put out last time, the whole business was a house of cards. For me they do offer more than Fev or Batley etc. The big issue would be the lack of travelling fans, though we have the same with a few Yorkie teams.

McShane was as strong as ever.
    Surely Lino has something to offer a Super League Club should they go down?

    Probably save the Pies some money if they bought Lino instead of carpet.

    Lino looked completely dejected last night for the last minute..

    Hard not to feel sorry for their players and the die hard fans, but can't see how they're getting a win - never mind staying up

    I can’t believe Batchelor got sent to the bin for that tackle. The two tackles later by the HKR prop are ten times worse. Officials are a joke.

    Maybe an argument the dump tackle was a penalty, would have to see another replay but it looked like his back remained horizontal despite Swift throwing his legs up. The Batchelor one wasnít even a penalty, just a normal tackle where the Hull player unfortunately got injured. The Ďcannonballí penalty contact was made on the thigh before tackle was called held so not even a penalty. Hull appealing for everything and getting scrappy because they were getting beaten comfortably.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Getting embarrassing for Hull now. Hull KRís left side is just tearing them apart.

    the combination between Coote & Hall which lead to Coote scoring was good to watch.
    Even though Hall has lost his pace he's doing a lot if damage.

    Hull need to get rid of Smith, he's been a good coach but it's not working there.

    The players they have should be doing better than they are

    I think they probably will sack him but I think it would be a mistake. Their problem is they have a squad of cowards. They need a culture transplant and I reckon Smith would be a good man to do it, but it’ll take time and Pearson isn’t known for his patience.

    I think the problem is very deep rooted in respect to the club structure and culture. Should imagine the likes of Woolf would really struggle at that club, they have been a mess for quite a few seasons now.

    No club should be bothered by the number of away fans that turn up. If thatís what youíre relying on, youíre doing it all wrong.

    I didn’t say we rely on away fans but a lack of them is a negative. Ask Wigan how much they made from travelling fans today. Do you think that clubs don’t factor expected numbers of away fans into their forecasts? We have that same issue with no away support from some current SL clubs. I am in no way advocating Bradford returning, but a successful Bradford SL team would probably bring more fans than a successful Toulouse or any other top championship club.

    I really don’t know where we should go with expansion once you get out of the heartlands it’s an uphill battle. At least Toulouse is in an existing Rugby area with numerous junior and amateur teams to develop players from.

    Just watchedLeigh v Salford. There was a big melee when Ipape high-tackled Dupree. Dupree took the law into his own hands and Costello raced in pushing and shoving. I immediately thought of the Welsby incident in the Leeds game when Kendall reversed the original penalty because Welsby did exactly what Dupree and Costello had done. It just highlighted to me the sheer inconsistency of refereeing decisions this season - the ref had a word with the captains and the original penalty stood - fair enough and the sensible option but the Welsby incident was dealt with totally differently and that is something that infuriates me.

    100%correct. I would go as far to say even the same ref can make two different decisions.

    Maybe the refs have been told to be more lenient for thus Rivals Weeken

    In the trailer advertising "Rivals" weekend there was emphasis on the needle in the game. They showed clips of Barry Mac and Stuart Fielden knocking lumps off each other and the clash between Farrell and Sculthorpe at Knowsley Rd.

    In the modern game those clashes would be red cards.

    Part way through the second half Watkins penalised for a late hit on the kicker, it wasn't a big hit by any means but it was with his shoulder, this time last season it would have been a yellow card.
