Gentle expects Ganson call
Peter Gentle has asked Steve Ganson for an apology after he missed a forward pass during Hull KR's late rally in Manchester.
Hull looked home and dry at 30-16 in the final game of Saturday's action at the Etihad Stadium, only for their rivals to mount a stunning late comeback. Sam Latus scored in the corner to haul KR back into the contest before the game's pivotal moment just a few minutes later. Rhys Lovegrove offloaded to Michael Dobson close to the Hull line with more than a hint of a forward pass and the Australian touched down. Ganson allowed the try to stand and KR went on to snatch the derby 32-30 thanks to a brilliant solo effort from David Hodgson in the dying seconds. Hull coach Gentle admitted his side ran out of steam towards the end but feels they would have won with the referee's intervention. "I would expect an apology from Steve Ganson (for the Dobson try) I don't know whether they do that over here, but I expect him to call me up and say 'I got that one wrong'," said Gentle. Brett Seymour, Richard Horne and Willie Manu had given Hull a 18-12 first-half lead, with Craig Hall and Shannon McDonnell touching down for Rovers. Tony Martin and Turner looked to have given FC the points before the late drama. The result meant Hull remained in fifth, while KR moved into the play-off places.
