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 .


Thanks for that GFDU , but we are quite happy to start games as under dogs biggrin.gif , and listening to the `if we cant beat teams like batley quotes wink.gif

Robert Hicks is from Oldham. He was featured in GameOn the other week. It says it in there



If it's the same Hicks who sent Handforth off at the end of the 2008 season then he's from Lancashire. I thoroughly detest him. I'm not justifying Handforth's behaviour but it was mainly provoked by the referee's "puzzling" decsions including allowing a Leigh try when the player was clearly (to everyone else anyway) in touch.

1-0 will do me, as long as we win. It will be tough because Batley are in decent nick but we do have home advantage and have to win the majority of home games if we are to challenge for honours this season.

This one will be a close call, either way. We will have to pull out all the stops. I predicted a few weeks ago that Batley will be the dark horses this year.

Haven't read that quote on here and you certainly won't hear it from me. I've got us to win by one score and thats only because of home advantage. I still think we are vulnerable to a side who turn up with a very basic game plan and stick to it. Just like Sheffield.

I am only person that thinks hicks is one of the better referees in our division. Last time he had us was in toulouse and i thought he handled the game well, my opinion of him has grown over past 2 seasons.

Anyway the game, gonna be tough, great atmosphere cos batley generally bring a few hundred, always need to start strong and i feel powell will give them a stern talk before match about set completions etc.

So ill go with:

Fev 28
Batlet 24

Attendance: 2076

Robert Hicks is definately a lancastrian, I spoke to him at a local amateur game, he follows Saddleworth Rangers.
Hope for a good game, good banter and a fair result.

Now the Mickey Mouse has gone we can seriously focus on the Championship. Whilst I do feel Batley are playing well I also feel that we have had 'teething problems' and I can see us coming good at the weekend. We played some good sets Tuesday night ( I know against a poorer side, albeit in terrible conditions) but we are better than how we have being performing. Its not an excuse but the weather has thrown the fixtures of late which can really affect how players prepare for games We are a good side and good sides don't become bad overnight. I have every faith in coach Powell and I can see us winning this one with 14.

According to the Yep news Daryl has dropped both our overseas stars. I thought they looked a class above on Tuesday night and this was confirmed by others who have seen them play in the reserves. Lets keep our faith in the coach and see wot happens in Sundays game. I wonder what he is saving them for, or maybe they are not fully match fit, they both looked as they had lots of energy so only time will tell. Bring on the Dogs !
