Leeds wouldn’t have beaten Warrington without Jack Walker pulling off four try savers, and he’s got one already tonight, too. Who’s the youngest player to have been named Man Of Steel…? ? #SLLeeHKR

@SkySports @SkySportsRL just a bit of advice.. When the ref asks to go to the screen, us actually at the game want to see the video replay too. I appreciate that the sponsors want to be seen but surely this can be done when the decision has been made by the video ref? #SLLeeHKR

Look Rovers fans , reffing RL is tough . Too many rules require judgement calls that are marginal . We were on the wrong side of these again tonight , but still should have won . Im sure this is what the coaches will focus on . We were great , but not composed enough . #SLLeeHKR
