Sin-bin offence missed, fans demand star stays and Tigers sweat over McShane – How social media reacted to Hull’s win over Castleford

Last night, a dominant second half from Hull FC carried them to victory against a different looking Castleford side. The Tigers were unable to back up after a brilliant semi-final showing against Warrington whilst Hull got back on track after defeat to St Helens in the semis last week. At least that was my view but how did social media see it.

Let’s start where the game started with a spectacular try from debutant Jason Qareqare. It was a classic try which the young winger won’t forget quickly and neither will twitter.

But in the end, it was Hull backs who made the difference. Mahe Fonua was particularly impressive filling in at centre for the injured Josh Griffin.

His potency led some Cas fans to question their defence, however.

Fonua’s partner on the left, Adam Swift, was equally impressive. Like Fonua he also grabbed a pair of tries.

Many people pointed to Jake Connor as well. The fullback was involved in every facet of the game and was his usual cheeky self as he sealed the deal with a late try.

It was a fiery second half largely down to Josh Reynolds.

However some were quick to praise the player who was heavily involved in the second half.

It was a difficult night for the Tigers in the end especially for talisman Paul McShane who appeared to limping for much of the game. Many suggested he should’ve been protected ahead of the Challenge Cup Final.

Not only was McShane limping but he also faced some interesting treatment from the crowd.
