Cullens CommentPaul Cullen looks towards the clubs first home play off game in Super League this weekend and reviews the final round of the year.WAS THERE EVER A POINT IN THE GAME THAT YOU THOUGHT THAT THE 2 POINTS WHERE SLIPPING AWAY?No, not at all. We have proven a number of times this year that the players can rally when under severe pressure. If we can come back from 30 û 6 after an hour at Bradford, we can dig in with the best. IT WAS A GAME WITH MANY INCIDENTS OF ILL DISCIPLINE FROM PLAYERS, I.E. CHRIS BRIDGE û SIN BIN, PAUL NOONE û HIGH TACKLE AND BRENTÆS æTRIPPINGÆ, IS THAT A CONCERN FOR YOU? All games with such intensity will feature such incidents; our discipline was very good against Leeds and even better against a very dynamic and very determined Hull side. WAS IT A SIGH OF RELIEF WHEN MARK HILTON DECLARED HIMSELF FIT FOR THE GAME? To express relief would indicate apprehension pre-game and that certainly was not the case, we beat Leeds with out Mark Hilton and we were more than capable of repeating that at the KC. But we are delighted Mark came through the game at Hull and is available for selection along with Ben Westwood and Mike Wainwright for the return.WHEN A SITUATION LIKE THIS OCCURS AT THE 11TH HOUR, HOW HARD IS IT TO RE-ARRANGE THE TEAM? ItÆs not the first time this year that we have lost players the day before the game, the day of the game and even in the warm up and its testimony to our game and structure that whoever steps in doesnÆt weaken the effort. LOOKING AHEAD TO THIS WEEKÆS PLAY-OFF GAME WE FACE HULL FC FOR THE SECOND TIME IN A WEEK, IS THAT ADVANTAGE PLAYING THEM SO SOON AFTER BEATING THEM?We both know an awful lot about each other; because this is the fourth time we have played this year. They have an extra dimensions coming in and a number of injuries to look after, we have extra dimensions coming in and fortunately no injuries to consider.IS THERE ANY CHANGE TO YOUR PREPARATION THIS WEEK WITH IT BEING A PLAY-OFF SITUATION AND FACING THE SAME TEAM AS LAST WEEK?We have been in play off mode now for the last 3 to 4 weeks, the sessions are very sharp, very short and aimed to peak the side for game day.
