“It was this moment that the momentum swung” – How social media reacted to Leeds’ win over Hull FC

Last night Leeds came up with a crucial win at Hull FC to give their play-off hopes a massive boost. The Rhinos overcame a 6-4 deficit at the break to claim a 22-12 win over the Black and Whites. That was my view anyway but how did social media see it?

There was one man at the heart of the Rhinos’ comeback: Brad Dwyer. The substitute added spark and pace to the Rhinos as he began to open up the Hull defence again and again. He both scored and created a try as he helped Leeds to the win. He received plenty of praise with one fan making an interesting prediction about the impact Dwyer could have on the Grand Final if Leeds get there.

He wasn’t the only gamebreaker for Leeds. Richie Myler came up with some massive moments as did Kruise Leeming. The Rhinos number nine moved to stand-off to accommodate Dwyer’s introduction and it worked a treat.

The game wasn’t without its feisty moments however and they led to a hilarious interaction between Mikolaj Oledzki and the officials.

In another controversial moment, some Leeds fans felt Connor Wynne should’ve been red carded for this incident with Richie Myler.

Unsurprisingly, Luke Gale’s recent controversy dominated the Sky Sports coverage of the game. It’s safe to say some fans were tired of hearing about it by the end.

Ultimately, Gale and his team put it behind them to claim a famous win culminating in this lovely moment between Gale and his coach.

Despite having a shot at the play-offs in 2021, the win mixed together with the news that Blake Austin could be signing for Leeds had Rhinos supporters excited for next season.

Meanwhile, Hull fans weren’t happy at all. This supporter only had one thing to say.
