“Emotional” fans are back but away teams dominate and Hull KR relegation fears over already – How social media reacted

Last night saw last year’s Grand Finalists maintain their perfect starts, the Wolves lose out to the Giants, a Challenge Cup hangover in Hull and a shock defeat for Castleford. But the biggest headline of the night was the return of fans. With that in mind, how did social media react to last night’s rugby?

In the Sky game last night a Huddersfield side guided by the mercurial Aidan Sezer defeated Warrington after a blistering start. Unsurprisingly, Sezer was given plenty of credit.

Another impressive Giant was superb centre Ricky Leutele who produced his best performance since joining Huddersfield in the winter.

Some neutrals couldn’t contain themselves as Wire fans returned only to see their team and the famous Greg Inglis 20-0 down at halftime.

Despite getting on the scoresheet, Inglis received plenty of criticism perhaps due to the lofty expectation of him.

The only home team to claim a win last night were Champions St Helens who were once again inspired by the brilliant Regan Grace who appears to be rekindling Welsh rugby.

Elsewhere, Leigh again came close to a first win of the season against rivals Wigan. In the end Wigan had too much for the gallant Centurions but twitter didn’t miss the opportunity to rub salt into Leigh’s wounds.

The fans were undoubtedly involved in the game and despite the result the Leigh supporters were ready to clap the players – they were quite clearly glad to be back.

Shockingly, Castleford were this time on the wrong end of a late try against Hull KR having scored one of their own against the Robins in the cup earlier in the season. Suddenly, Rovers fans are a little more optimistic about the campaign.

The Tigers, along with Hull FC, Warrington and Leigh, failed to welcome their supporters back with a win and Twitter found it amusing.

The disappointment of losing at home stretched to Hull FC.

Hull KR fans certainly enjoyed it.

Their enjoyment did lead to quite the dispute between the two sets of Hull supporters, however.

Of course, there’s no getting away from the fact that yesterday’s biggest story was the return of fans and the massive step in the right direction this symbolises. Despite the results going against the home teams in the main, they were glad to be back.
