As Wakefield comfortably beat Huddersfield, Warrington just about overcame Wigan whilst Hull KR thrashed Leigh in convincing fashion. But, how did social media react?
A Warrington fan was impressed greatly by George Williams.
Grinded it out second half men well done. 👏👌@George7Williams is a naughty man😜 our best signing for years, a rugby footballer that has it all imo🐺💙

Another Warrington fan called it a ‘grind’.
Wins a win I suppose not the best game certainly a grind in that second half, wigan had all the ball any other team would have beat us probably

A Wigan fan, however, was not impressed by his side’s performance.
I’d have liked to have seen some attacking rugby this season

That sentiment was echoed by another supporter.
Honestly. Don’t know why I read this post match reports/interviews. Same crap each week.

Wigan fans were seriously unhappy with the attacking performance.
Good effort. And little between the teams – literally the bounce of a ball.
But our attack is woeful. So little creativity is worrying; particularly with the loss of Hastings, and possibly Hardaker.

One supporter believed it was one of the most boring games he had seen.
One of the dullest games of rugby I have ever seen. Zero effort to chase final kick. Zzzzzzzz

One Wigan fan couldn’t hide his disappointment.
SSDD – Same Shit, Different Day.

Another laid into the Wigan performance.
Boring, dull, flat, lacking basic skill. Never looking like winning. Have they all just given up?

One Wakefield fan wanted to see Willie Poching given the permanent role as head coach after yet another win.
willie is actually the best coach of all time. give him a lifetime deal

Another believed it was well controlled.
Exactly the type of game we’d usually throw away. Thought we controlled it and played some brilliant defence – should have scored more but had we been pushed more by giants I think we’d have found the tries – we responded to everything thrown at us- WTID 🔴⚪️🔵⚜️

A Huddersfield fan, meanwhile, was upset about the result.
We tried, but not enough. Didn't match their energy, intensity, and management. Lessons to learn, and time to grow.

A Leigh fan was bitterly disappointed by his side’s thrashing at the hands of Hull KR.
Match report : You got destroyed yet again. Bringing shame to the club.
