“A very scruffy undeserved win!” – Hull KR fans not happy as Warrington steal win

Hull KR

Warrington Wolves managed to nick the win in a rollercoaster clash at Craven Park against Hull KR in a Super League clash that wasn’t dominated by disciplinary drama for once.

It was a rare instance in this current 2024 season but no cards were shown meaning it was 80 minutes of 13 on 13 end-to-end action.

Hull KR could perhaps feel aggrieved that they lost the game as opposed to Warrington Wolves winning it, the home side bombing two certain tries on either side of the half.

As for Sam Burgess and Warrington Wolves, they won’t care that the Robins could have won as the facts state that Wire did secure the two points.

In fact, Sam Burgess will likely be more appreciative of his side winning in such a fashion even if it did see him develop a few more grey hairs in what was a dramatic finish.

Referee Aaron Moore initially awarded Warrington a penalty in the 79th minute after Matt Dufty tried and failed to collect a high kick, that decision being one that would allow Warrington to comfortably see out the game.

Seconds later, Moore changed his mind giving the Robins a scrum just twenty metres out in the dying embers whilst only two points down, a decision that could have been hugely contentious had KR managed to score.

As it happened, Warrington scrambled and managed to earn their third consecutive victory which has prompted questions of if it’s ‘their year’, whilst the highly-touted Hull KR lost a second straight game which has seen plenty of fan reaction too.

Hull KR fans slam side for “finding ways to lose”

Willie Peters had spoke in his post-match interview on Sky Sports noting that Hull KR should have won the game and that’s a sentiment that plenty of fans had too.

One posted: “Managed to find every possible way to lose that”, which was accompanied with a string of angry emojis.

That was echoed often, another posting on X: “We literally couldn’t have done any more to throw that game away.”

As for Warrington, even their fans weren’t enthralled despite the gritty performance.

One called it: “A very scruffy undeserved win! Full of mistakes, missed opportunities and lacking skill!”

The same old trope of it being ‘Warrington’s year’ was wheeled out by many fans too.
