Castleford Tigers 22-26 Hull KR: Player ratings and major talking points

Castleford Tigers went down at home to Hull KR, but what were the three major talking points and how did the players rate?

Three major talking points

1. Hull KR are one of the most exciting teams in Super League

Whilst other teams play to a structure, Hull KR like to play off-the-cuff and it quite obviously works. They pushed Castleford all the way with some inventive skill and they truly are a joy to watch.

2. How good it was to see the Jungle packed

It wasn’t full by any stretch of the imagination, but the Jungle was packed with Castleford fans after 429 days without any spectators. And, boy they made their voices heard; it was actually rather bizarre to hear the crowd roar after such a long time, but it was incredible to say the least.

3. Jordan Abdull is finally living up to his potential

Much was made of Jordan Abdull when he came through the ranks at Hull FC, but he himself will be the first to admit it didn’t go that well for him at the KCOM Stadium. However, he has since become one of Hull KR’s most important players with an astute kicking game and an intelligent rugby brain.
