Hull KR 16 Bradford Bulls 0

Matt Diskin and Adam Sidlow suffered first-half injuries as the Bulls slipped to a costly defeat at Hull KR this afternoon.

Skipper Diskin had to helped off the field in the 10th minute and prop Sidlow followed him 13 minutes later in similar fashion.

Both injuries looked serious and first-half tries from Omari Caro and Kris Keating put Craig Sandercock’s side 12-0 up at the break.

A try on the hour mark from second-rower Kevin Larroyer finished Bradford off on a day when they defended doggedly and their spirit was not in doubt.

Pretty much everything is going against the Bulls. Catalan beating Hudderfield, Widness going into next week on the back of good win in Hull and Salford and Hull KR pulling away after todays results.
I really can't see where the next win is coming from.
Leeds, Wigan, Warrington, Saints then Huddersfield is a run a top side would struggle with.

With Sidlow and Diskin aparrently now injured it's beginning to look bleak for us, and it really is hard to see a win on the horizon. Let's hope the takeover is resolved quickly and some strengthening is imminent.

The boys battled valiantly, if effort and spirit won matches we would be fine, but sadly when the team is down to the bare bones because of limited resources we have a mountain to climb before we kick a ball. Like T.V.O.R, i can't see where our next win is coming from but it is not through the lack of effort.

Exactly right.Two more injuries,sound bad ones,pretty soon they will not be able to turn a team out.It will save the RFL from having to make a decision.As an aside,Seven Super League games this weekend,59000 spectators,Saracens v Harlequins 84000.Do you still think the RFL board are up to the task of promoting the game.The game is becoming a laughing stock and the Bulls situation is totally ridiculous,even supporters from other clubs can now see how incompetent they are.And,yes ,I know the RFL did not create the Bulls situation but they certainly have not done the game any favours with their hesitancy.If there is nobody fit to take over the Bulls let the other clubs know now and end the situation.

There appears to be a downward spiral going on with nothing to stop it except a new set up being able to provide some more players (who, I don't know) but it would energise the club. That in turn could change the club's fortunes.
We are having absolutely no luck in any department with new injuries and game decisions.
This carry on with naming the winning bid is farcical, the RFL and the administrator are just dragging things out. If any of the bidders can't provide proof of funds then why not? It was part of the requisite for putting a bid in so if they can't provide the proof they are not a front runner to me. Therefore go to the next best with money in place.

Thanks again to the players and coaching staff for battling against odds they should not have to deal with. Will be cheering the team on at the next game and hopefully by then there will be some answer about the future.

That path as been trodden before, Gateshead Thunder were doing quite well, with 'bomber' M'crae as head coach makeing a few astute signings they were on a roll!.At the same time,Hull FC were on their arse! Gateshead were dissolved the stand out players and 'bomber' decamped to Hull Fc. True story.

Its time to stop blaming the rfl and face facts. We have fallen to rock bottom from a great height. The players we have got left are giving all they have got, but I don't think it will be enough. The strongest always survive at the minute that ain't us.

The effort in tackling their big men today was immense....however with ball in hand the Bulls get worse....Mullaly apart their is no drive going forward and we are playing like strangers when passing the ball. Luke Gayle makes foolish decisions to gamble with a risky pass on the second tackle when we finally get anywhere near the opponents line and the ball is usually dropped.
His kicking today was also appalling....Sutclif
fe doesn't look interested and we incapable of breaking through opposition defence
We badly need someone capable of attacking at pace and finding the right pass...its all too obvious with Gale....Franny has made a mistake building a team with Gale as the so called architect...he's too slow
That was a big difference today...Travis Burns was far quicker
Add to that we must have dropped the ball umpteen times and that is not acceptable
New recruits required immediately cos we've had it if not sadly

TVOR and you are right it's a case of as one door shuts, another closes.
Without investment in players it's hard to think that we can get off the bottom let alone get to mid table, when you lose to a team with no wins, and you then have to face the so called better teams, the psychological disadvantage must be soul destroying.
Hard to see a way forward at moment.
The Nills Desparandum quote seems to be inappropriate at moment ?
However if we give in now, we might as well book a trip into the second tier before playing another game?

Oh for a stand with income generating facilities behind it like the one at Hull KR. Build straight across the etrack at Rooley Lane end, with all the space, where current terracing is, used for Hotels, Gyms, Hotels, Shops, Bars, Schoolrooms etc the potential is enormous.

How can Hull KR do all that on gates of 7,000
