Bill do you remember when we went to keighley in 94-95 season for a regal trophy tie,keighley v wires? I drove in my tiny citroen ax with 5 of us crammed into it,me,my dad,my mate,you and my uncle ste. We got lost in keighley and stopped to ask that cockney bloke for directions to the rugby ground. He sent us to keighley RU ground! We found cougar park eventually and were 18-8 behind with about 10 mins remaining. I thought we had blown it,then jiffy davies got us out of trouble with some magic,we pinched it 20-18. to be fair it was a heartbreaking defeat for lower league keighley,they did not really deserve to lose that game. All their fans were really friendly and welcoming too. Such a long time ago now bit it seems like yesterday. Happy days they were!

Like yesterday mate.
Drinking in the bar with Steve Hall's parents before the game, he had a near career ending leg injury an hour later....
Game was lost, game plan became "give it to jiffy...", real get out of jail free ticket he was that day.
Guess Who hates talk of that game, guess it was a real heartbreaker to the cougar fans, and there were loads of them then, before the "summer era" appeared.

It's another one I'd place a safety bet on, so pay if we win, collect if we lose.
Catalans are established now, have been to Wembley, so big picture is covered.


What a load of B.S. A final for Catalans would be massive for the game particularly for the game in France. You just want to have your cake and eat it. If you want purely what's good for the game, you'd be cheering on Catalans in the semi final. Many neutrals will be. Personally, I wont be cheering on Batley. I think its rather unsporting to let others win or hope my team loses. It's sort of against the whole reason sport exists in the first place. Bigger picture be damned.

Batley, along with Keighley, have historic sympathies with a lot since '96.
Yeah, I know the Komics were dumped on too, the merger was never a go-er, but those teams have a more deserving cause for getting support.
For a start they're not in Widnes. wink.gif


I think we're getting down to the real gist of your feelings on the matter.

Widnes won it last year,it would be good if batley win today. As bill says,another team would then tick the box for SL application. I don't envisage that many of the top SL stars would welcome playing on that slope that is batley's pitch though!
2009 Warrington 25 Hudderfield 16
2010 Warrington 30 Leeds 6
2011 League Leaders Shield Winners
2012 Warrington 35 Leeds 18

Challenge cups and league leaders shields everywhere! We need more silver polish!

Ok, Mystic Meg, guilty as charged there, you read my mind. tongue.gif
Catalans getting to Wembley a couple of years ago didn't do them harm, but neither did it really boost the game over there.
I know most neutrals will want Catalans to beat us, as I wanted them to beat Wigan, but there is a big underdog factor involved, plus we're not exactly the most liked club in the UK, despite the glamour factor.
When I bet against Wires, I still cheer for them, I just have a cushion ifwe lose.
However, hope it's a good game either way, and we can talk about tries and action not the ref come 6pm.

What a stunning try for Batley! 25-24, kick to come, grandstand finish!

On Friday 28th March I'm taking part in the Wigan Streetsleep, raising money for The Brick charity who try to ensure nobody in Wigan finding themselves homeless spends a 2nd night on the streets and providing help and support via a foodbank.  Every penny counts so if you can spare anything at all its much appreciated - this link will take you to my sponsorship page thanks.
