One fan pointed out that those who suggested form goes out the window in a derby were very wrong.

As for Hull FC, one fan joked that they should be glad winless Wakefield exist.

With Hull FC having so many players out of contract, some fans felt that there should be no contract renewals after that.
If ANY,of the player's who were involved in this shambolic display,are rewarded with a contract renewal, serious questions need to be asked..

Others described it as a disgrace.
I’m sorry but that is totally unacceptable. This is the biggest game of the year and a performance like that is a disgrace.

Or “absolutely embarrassing.”
Absolutely embarrassing! No pride or passion. Sack them all!

Worryingly one fan claimed he was not shocked by the result which is a damning assessment of the club after six consecutive defeats.
Not shocked, players don't care and it shows, get rid of as many as possible as soon as possible.
