“They wanted it more” – How social media reacted to Hull KR’s win over Castleford

Last night, Hull KR claimed a huge victory in their hunt for play-off rugby when they downed Castleford 26-19 in a must win game for both sides. It was a brilliant contest graced with a touch of controversy but in the end Hull KR were deserving winners. That was my take anyway but what was yours? How did social media see the game?

The star of the show was undoubtedly Mikey Lewis. He grabbed a pair of classic tries as he continues his outstanding development.

One fan felt, after being replaced by Rowan Milnes earlier this season, that the trip to York was the perfect place for him to develop and come back as a better player.

Other impressive performers included Sky Sports’ Man of the Match Will Dagger as well as the returning Jordan Abdull.

Some even felt Dagger has re-established himself as a key player for the Robins moving forward.

To be honest, the list of star players last night was endless and included Kane Linnett and try scorer Matt Parcell.

Parcell’s try was a major talking point in the contest. Many believed it should’ve been sent to the video referee.

That said, many believed Child’s decision wouldn’t have changed the game given the impressive performance of Hull KR on the night.

Plenty are now getting ready for the huge game at Headingley next week as Hull KR and Leeds both look to secure their play-off places. However, interestingly should Castleford lose on Thursday the game could mean very little and it’s safe to say some fans aren’t impressed.
