Brilliant KR Sink the Rhinos in the Qualifiers





After their big defeat at the hands of Salford in their opening Qualifiers fixture, Hull KR went to Toronto and got the win to revitalise their campaign to retain their Super League place. But today they had the biggest of tests as they visited the tournaments favourites with a trip to Headingley to take on the Leeds Rhinos.
Danny McGuire was making his first playing return to the ground where he won so many honours, this time with the intention of spoiling the Rhinos party and boosting his new side chances. He was joined by a handful of ex-Rhinos against a still injury ravaged home side.
It was the most appetising Qualifiers game of the weekend in a third round of great looking fixtures.

Hardly one for the purist, but enjoyable non the less.

Funniest moment for me was when McGuire threw the forward pass for Halls try - the Southstand was incensed!

Jeez, he's been doing that all his career.
Fudge-it.

Look what happens when you listen to the fans. Certain sections of the Leeds support always wanting McDermott sacked and putting all success own to Sinfield coaching the team.

No way was or would the defence be shipping the points it is doing against Middle 8 teams under McDermott. Should’ve been released at the end of the season if they didn’t have anybody proper lined up but Sinfield has been eyeing up the CEO role for a decade and supporters of his at the club waited for the smell of blood to oust McDermott and start pushing GH out.

Sinfield criticising the ethos at the club when he came back and that players weren’t happy and they’re now much happier in training and things have improve. Way to slam the previous guy (which you know will go down well) but unfortunately the performances don’t back that up Kevin. Young players who’d been doing well and picked under McDermott in Oledzki and Smith haven’t been getting a look in under Sinfield and he’s shifting players around.

Under McDermott we were in a bad patch that we would’ve gotten through. But this whole coup d’état to give Sinfield his dream gig has left the club in a proper mess

Couldn't understand Leeds parting with McDermott when they did. He'd have walked the middle eights, then Leeds could have rang the changes for next season if they felt the need to start afresh. At this rate, Leeds may well sleep-walk into the MPG.

Hard to state how much of a disaster it would be for SL going into new Sky negotiations without the biggest and best-rating club.
Leeds deserve everything they get but this must be giving Elstone sleepless nights as much as Hetherington.

Hetherington did not want to ditch McDermott until the end of the season, it was McDermotts choice to leave when he did.

Wasn't it the other way round? I thought McDermott refused to resign and so was sacked?

Like I said, too many believing the hype that all the success was down to Sinfield and wanting him in and GH and McDermott out. Probably believed it himself and that he’d stroll through the Middle 8’s.

That’s not what I heard, I heard that Hetherington told him that he would be replaced at the end of the year but McDermott basically said back me or sack me.
