Well I aren't going to start the doom and gloomers off but it's going to have to be bring a decent player in before it's too late
Who the bloody hell is the fitness coach??
Not having people blaming the ref you play to the whistle simple as
Not one of those players is good enough to be a game changer
We didn't break there line once
Good defensive effort from powells men
Was listening to Richard lamb in we need to get him in ASAP
Nice to here somebody who sounds like he knows how to run a business
Would love to see a Luke Walsh or a Danny Brough player
That's all we are lacking luke gale may as well have gone to hull
Not sure about Gaskell yet either looks ordinary
Wakey will win on Thursday sounded like they put more effort in than we did today

What did you think of the game Axelf.Did the Bulls play O.K.until the last 20 minutes.What was the crowd?Did you pay on the gate or did you use your season ticket.You sound dissapointed.

What was the crowd announced as? I must have missed it.
Fitness seems a problem, we matched them for 60min then looked dead on our feet and were blown away.

Great to see Castleford bring a decent following for once.

Pablo 6:07pm Sun 16 Feb 14

I don't think many of us went into this game with much expectation but I didn't expect we'd run out of steam with a quarter of the game left.

Two questions. How long have we been back training and how come our fitness levels are so poor? If we can't compete physically for the full 80 minutes, we'll struggle to win a game. Franny and Co need to get some fitness work in ...FAST!

Now Sammut's gone, who's left to create anything?

On the pitch, and off it, there continue to be more questions than answers.

Score: 9
bulls123 6:41pm Sun 16 Feb 14

The worrying thing is Sammut wasn't going to be playing today anyway. FC confirmed partnership in the halves was Gale and Gaskell even if Sammut hadn't have left. Have to agree with Pablo, who is creating anything. Gale is no where near as good as he is made out to be. Gets 2 improved contracts in the last 2 seasons and Sammut been told he needs to earn it. Must have missed Gale earning his 2 contracts.

Theknight 6:52pm Sun 16 Feb 14

No power upfront so when Gaskell did make plays (
Which he
Was GOOD at ) the defence was all over him , we definitely need an old head enforcer .

northern pig 7:03pm Sun 16 Feb 14

yeah we need more creativity and more legs,match play rustiness acceptable but not fitness!! they were better than us today but every team we play .as had twice the dosh recruitment wise, don't say it'are fault! the promotion and relegation cards were dealt,after we accepted our punishment last year,4 out of ten for effort.

I honestly thought Hicks had an appalling game today. Cas scored three tries from his incorrect decisions and the one we scored in which he brought back for a knock on was totally the wrong decision as we didn't even touch the ball and then it bounced into Kears hands and then to have the try cancelled by this buffoon was a joke.

Voice of reason just ignore August1964 as I think he's one of the Rhino bcum sag who likes to try and get one over the Bulls as I do very successfully on there web pages on the Yorkshire evening post.

I thought he had a bad game too but Cas scored 3 times from us coughing up the ball on 1st tackle on our 10/20 metre line-can't blame the referee for that. Take those 3 tries out and it would have been a fair result. I thought Gaskell had a good game-man of match for me

Absolutely! there are two things in Superleague,or in any format of rugby league. 1 Respect possession. 2 Complete your sets! It's not rocket science,You have to make things as difficult as you can.for the opposition.

Still having a go me?
No comment on the game?
Nothing on the coughing the ball up way to often, nothing on the referee, nothing on being dead on out feet after 60min in the first game of the season?
Btw I have looked for the attendance on the web, the bulls website gives 2 different figures.

TomBulls 10:34pm Sun 16 Feb 14

Gale and Gaskell looked good together and was actually one of the main positives to come out of today, we need to be more worried about our defence and lack of fitness. On initial impact in the tackle they were gaining a good 5 metres every time, we looked very soft.

Genuinely didn't miss Sammut either.

FC said we are in better physical condition than ever yet everyone seems to agree that we dropped off at the hour mark, which is worrying.

When are we going to sack our defence coach? We cannot survive this season leaking this many tries as we do not have the strike players to play you score we score rugby.

Thursday is going to be a massive game, got to feel that letting Sammut go is going to come back to bite us in the a***
