‘We will be relegated’ Leeds fans sweat after Rovers loss – How social media reacted to last night’s rugby

Last night saw some interesting results. Salford claimed their first win of the season against Leigh in an important battle at the bottom of the table. Hull FC maintained their unbeaten record in a titanic battle against Wakefield. And in the most eyebrow raising result Hull KR played Leeds off the park to claim a 26-6 win over the 8-time Super League Champions or at least that’s my view. But how did social media see it?

Let’s start with that shock result in Hull. Many Leeds fans were bemused by the poor performance. The Rhinos, who pushed both St Helens and Wigan in recent weeks, welcomed back some stars and yet produced their worst performance of the season.

Others were simply furious at the showing as the Rhinos continually made unforced errors and gave away silly penalties.

Some questioned the team Richard Agar selected playing returning Ash Handley at fullback and dropping exciting youngster Jack Broadbent to the bench.

Some fans went even further claiming that Agar had to go in a kneejerk reaction to the result. Some even said that if things don’t change at Headingley then Leeds will be relegated.

Some Rhinos fans also had stuff to say about an incident in Hull FC’s win over Wakefield questioning the difference between Zane Tetevano’s red card against St Helens and Bureta Faraimo’s late challenge that only yielded a yellow card.

A lot of fans across the game weren’t exactly pleased with the inconsistency shown by the decision to only hand Faraimo a yellow.

Switching gears to the rugby played at the KCOM Stadium, Hull FC were very impressive in defence as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season – their best start to a campaign since 2009.

It was a great win for Hull FC all told and again showed that they’re headed in the right direction.

Wakefield’s Mason Lino caught the eye in defeat. Even Hull fans praised him.

In yesterday’s other game Salford claimed a vital win against Leigh. Salford fans agreed that it was the final few minutes that they really showed their quality.

Sadly some Leigh fans have already resigned themselves to relegation this season.
