“I genuinely hope they get in the play-offs” – How social media reacted to last night’s rugby

Last night, Hull KR, Catalans, Leeds and Salford claimed vital wins in a brilliant night of rugby across Europe. Well, that was my view but what was yours? How did social media see it?

Let’s start with the Sky game in Hull. Hull KR came up with a superb opening quarter to blow Wigan away. Despite a spirited Warriors fightback, the Robins held on for a vital win in terms of their play-off aspirations. Many now hope they’ll have what it takes to secure their place in the top six.

However, there are concerns over whether they’ll meet the all-important 18 game mark which is required of any side looking to finish in the top six. Some people believe the league absolutely has to stick to the rule if they want the play-offs to mean anything.

Meanwhile, Ryan Hall might not have celebrated his 400th appearance with a try but he conjured up a superb assist for Kane Linnett’s decisive scored and he earned rave reviews.

However, the Wigan wingers also caught the eye with some sensational finishes.

Elsewhere, Salf0rd stunted Huddersfield’s recent momentum with a gutsy win. It evidently left a bitter taste for Huddersfield fans.

For Salford supporters it was sweet revenge beating the coach who left them.

Meanwhile, despite defeat, Hull FC fans were relatively pleased with their efforts against the table topping Dragons.

Back in England, Leeds came up with the win over at Leigh. However, it could prove to be a damaging victory for the Rhinos with Luke Gale limping off in the first quarter of the game. It very well could end his season meaning the Rhinos’ first choice halfback pairing will have only managed 10 minutes alongside each other this term. It’s safe to say Leeds fans are concerned about what the future holds without their talisman.

The injury to Gale forced Richard Agar to move Kruise Leeming into the halves but he once again impressed in the role.
