just been thinking about the differant componants to a rugby league team and wondered what it takes to have a league winning side?

-squad depth?
-a core of 5/6 really special players
-a good leader?
-good halfs?

Probably all those attributes but just as important is a will to win. To keep going when things are against you and to realise that it is a honour to play for Featherstone Rovers.
To be a ROVER is a privilege not to be taken lightly, with fans like ours, we will always be honoured.

As has been said all of those, but they don't have to be great apart from the leader. A case in point was Eric Batten. He had in 1952 mainly a homespun team from our area. There were some imports such as Miller but they had been let had been let go by their teams as past it. Batten took hold of the team and molded it into a very strong rugby league team. They were fit and strong and believed in themselves because he made them believe. I remember going down to watch training just after he took over. NOBODY was allowed to touch a rugby ball until they were as fit as they could be. He could read a game and see players potential. He switched Cording from wing to stand off and incorporated Miller's kicking ability into his plans. Make no mistake the Wigan team of that era was every bit as good as any team now. He was the BOSS and what he said went. So in my opinioin a TOP NOTCH leader is 9 tenths of the game. Look at Reilly of CAS he used to beat teams on his own and he played with one fit leg. A leader to read the game and direct operations.
