“I’ve seen worse hits in the school playground” – how social media reacted to Tommy Makinson’s red card

10,464 days; that’s how long it had been since Castleford last won a league game at St Helens.

That record was finally broken by the Tigers over 30 years later, with a superb 20-10 victory outlining the credentials of Daryl Powell’s men as we head into the business end of the season.

But, just how did social media react?

It seems that Twitter was very divided over whether Tommy Makinson should have been given a red card for his challenge on Niall Evalds.

Again, the opinion of two others differed greatly.

One neutral supporter did, however, give an impassioned defence of referee Ben Thaler for the decision.

That was, however, contradicted by a different supporter.

Again, though, people were disagreeing down the timeline.

One supporter went really quite far in his description of the incident.

One supporter came up with an explanation for the card.

Even a Makinson fan couldn’t defend his actions.

Another Twitter user was adamant it wasn’t a red card, though.
