To right it was.

It was not the sign of a team fighting for survival. Hull kr stuck to the same game plan as they did in challange cup completed sets good kicks and waited for us to make mistakes start giving penalties away. We always go back to giving penalties away when we are up against it that's why we are in the position we are all season it's been the same old story. I thought after two good wins against Salford and fev we would of been firing on all cylinders but we back to square one after today's performance we going to struggle next week with this attitude I hope I'm wrong

The only thing unacceptable was us going for two when leading by 2 , stupid decision , you hand the opposition a huge amount of confidence

We go and win the next game, if not we go and win the one after - not ideal but not out of it yet

Hock and Acton a big miss, and could even argue that Brown dropping out cost us the game

We've played worse this season without a doubt, don't think our discipline and retention was too bad

That was the correct decision.

We made one line break all game and if Lunt had not scored at the death that going for 2 would and should have seen us home.

Now what? We go and beat Catalan that's what.

Some big decisions needed on team selection prior though.

Does Drinkwater keep his place on the back of today? He took a big hit off Scruton early doors. Not sure if that affected him but he simply was not at the races all afternoon. We have beat Warrington, Wigan, Hull, St.Helens and Huddersfield with Ben Reynolds at 6.

Does Liam Hood keep his place? Do we now need Pelissier to inject something extra with his pace around the ruck?

Is Cory Paterson still effective? Is it time to bring in Sam Hopkins offering some badly needed go forward?

Are both these wingers good enough? Does it now need a bold decision from Jukes to start James Clare in addition to Mitch Brown in Perpignon?

I feel we need fresh impetus. We got done over again at home by a side offering just one attacking threat in Sean Lunt but an abundance of sheer dogged determination, desire and motivation to win.

Yes H.Drinkwater was sat in the wings,never got involved with the game..Reynolds to replace

Hood none effective..Replace with Pelissier

Burr was too indisciplined..Replace with Hopkins

Paterson played for 10 minutes. Replace with (we don't have anyone)

Higson made two vital errors. The first I think 2nd play of the set of which i'm pretty sure he was trying to pass,The second see's him again strolling into the Centre position leaving the winger free.-Replace with Clare.

Got to the stage today were I felt there was only 10 players on the park.Three where on walkabout.

In over 50 years watching the game i do not ever recall seeing a professional player who is as adept at making mistakes as Adam Higson, that being both in possession and defence, he is usually good for 2 to 3 a game, it is the nature of the man no amount of trying will ever improve him.

You fail to mention Glen Stewart in your summary Harold, I take it you must appreciate his contributions to the team?

We should have taken 2 earlier on from a penalty.That would have least made kr not concede penalties for fun in the last few minutes..The older members on here will remember Murphys winning teams would take a drop goal score rather than come away empty handed
