“The game will be gone very soon” – Former Super League official slams “pathetic” yellow card

Richard Silverwood

Last night, Hull KR helped their play-off hopes with a win over Wakefield Trinity.

It didn’t take long for Rovers to get ahead and they did so through centre Tom Opacic in just the seventh minute.

KR then piled the pressure on as they forced Trinity errors and that paid dividends when Rowan Milnes played in Louis Senior for a score in the corner.

At 10-0 after just ten minutes it looked to be a long night for Wakefield and that was proven right when Senior intercepted a wayward pass to run the length of the pitch.

Loanee Fouad Yaha than clattered Max Jowitt with a harsh but fair tackle that the officials deemed a little too harsh, sending him for 10 minutes.

It was this tackle that has outraged a few fans.

Meanwhile, former Super League official Richard Silverwood has labelled it “pathetic” and said “the game will gone very soon.”

Silverwood shared a screenshot of the incident with the comment:

“Absolutely pathetic. Arms wrapped, perfect tackle but unfortunately clash of heads. Game will be gone very soon.”

Despite being down to 12 men, it was KR who scored next though with Opacic bagging his second latching on to a Milnes kick.

Trinity did get on the scoresheet before the break and whilst they had the man advantage with Romain Franco scoring and former Robin Will Dagger converting to leave it 22-6 at the break.

The early exchanges of the second half saw teams trade blows but with no points coming to fruition until just before the hour mark when the visitors hit back.

Luke Gale on his Trinity debut crossed over with Dagger then adding the extras as well t0 create a nervy final 20 minutes for the Craven Park faithful.

Any doubts were erased when Rovers killed the game in the 72nd minute with the halves combining as Litten played in Lewis who then darted over to extend the lead to 28-12.

The win pushed Rovers closer to the playoffs sitting just outside on virtue of points difference, but importantly it was the first win in Super League in five games for Willie Peters’ men.
