Very difficult again this week. Batley high on confidence after scoring 110 points in their 3 games so far, conceding 66 points and are still unbeaten. The pitch and weather conditions will make this a very tough close game with possibly 1 try the difference. I think this result yet again will go down to Mr Hicks , can you imagine a Featherstone referee being allowed to officiate a C@s match? No me neither. Fev 23 - 24 Batley. Attendance 1600

I think with the Leigh result still fresh in everyone's memory, we'll go out and put in a performance on this one, and beat a good Batley side, by a couple of tries

Batley are fresh from a 2 week rest and with Josh Griffin and Kyle Wood set to boost the ranks on loan from Huddersfield will be tough to beat.

We generally have the upper hand in clashes at post office road in recent years - this is a different Batley side than in the last few seasons, dark horses for the title in my opinion this year and should not be taken lightly.

Ill go Featherstone 16 Batley 38.

Usual Fev attitude - put in an acceptable performance against Rochdale so no need to bother in the next match.

Rovers 8 - 22 Batley

Andy I know we have the ability to win I am just not confident for the reason I mentioned regarding our cas friend in the middle, I can never understand how the RFL can justify allocating him our games. I also think they will be a force this year with K Harrison at the helm for his 1st full season in charge.

They let Dave Merrick officiate our games and he is a born and bred capper and still a fev fan, so is that fair on other teams????
Hicks isn't who we're all going to watch and rugby will decide who wins

I go for 14-12 Rovers on the quagmire

MAN IN THE MIDDLE

Robert Hicks (Castleford)

Now I never knew he was from there, but i'm not surprised in the slightest with his obvious hatred of us.

Cummins Out.

He's also a well respected Lawyer!

It is only the same as Batley having referees from Dewsbury which we get regularly

"The Great Escape 2014"

I just hope its refereed fairly, he wont have that much to do as both sides prefer to play good rugby and it will be a pleasure to see everyone from Batley again with a good friendley atmosphere

you underestimate Batley at your peril i am a dewsbury man so i am not biased in their favour but as a previous poster said Batley are a dark horse for the top of the division , they are a very good side with some quality players . you will do well to beat them , if Batley get over 6 points start from the bookies back them .
