Got to be a point won away at Cas, given where both teams sit in the table, surely? And being 14-zip down at one point.

Probably doesn’t help us massively in terms of league positions (except making the spoon less likely) but got to be good for morale! :)

Having been at the game. Definitely a point won. Given that for the first 10/15 mins we did our usual. Kick off out on the full, errors etc.
But the lads played well afterwards, and our attacking play in the last 10 mins was superb.
It's a good point, and I left feeling bouent about rovers.
Next 3 are the big games though, I'd we can't keep this up im more confident we can win at least 2 of them (Huddersfield the one I'm not sure about).
Hull KR the pride of East Hull.

Kr better side today. We were lucky to get a point. Can't question our attitude either just gotta praise KR. The way you defended at 14-0 was worth a try or 2 alone. Vavai a beast, Masoe quality, atkin a threat. Just absolute kudos, you never went away and had a mass of momentum which we couldn't do much about. Only disappointment was not hearing a rendition of a little respect. That said, all the best for the rest of the season.

Not able to go but listened on line, was not expecting a win hoping & hope we avoided a hammering so to be actually disappointed we did not scrape a win was a very very good surprise. It also helps to keep people interested in the team & I hope the team get a lift from a performance that showed a lot of character grit & resolve. Got two weeks now to prepare to push on into the season climax.

Apart from the top 3 and maybe Wakey, I think every side in the league could say that about injuries, unfortunately part and parcel of the game and ten team with the least about of key injuries seems to do well (Like we did in 2016).

I think looking at the game, it's a point gained, but really to try and finish in the top 8, you needed both.

Massive game on a week Friday, probably your biggest game of the season as lose and that you out of the race for the top 8.

Credit to KR. I think we had the attitude of we had done enough when we went 8? up in the second half. I genuinely thought you were going to pinch it with a drop goal at the end but I'm happy with a point considering how well you came back at us. Can't remember who scored that long range try for you but it was a good en. Hope you stay up.

8th has been teetering between long shot and unrealistic for a good long while now. 6 points behind Hudds with only 5 to be played, but if we did beat them in our next game up it’d keep our very, very slim hopes alive. Even a win today would have left us needing 3 more wins than them, so to the extent that it matters a draw is as good as a win - their points difference is poor.

More realistic, if also much less valuable, would be grabbing 9th/10th - and the draw today doesn’t help very much with that.

We’ll be in the middle 8s almost certainly, but if we can build on this over the next five SL rounds, we can go in with a bit of belief.

Looking at the fixtures I think you will finish above Salford and sneak 10th, don't think they will win another game, so need 2 more wins and all games games left are winnable IMO.
