Stokes was very poor even for Stokes. 2nd half was decided by the first. Sh+t match, scoreline flatters Batley.
Enjoy your win.
Stokes is dreadul all round. I still remember the performance he put in at your place in 2011. Although I'm not suggesting that was the reason you won.
In the second half the scoreline actually flattered York. With a little more composure and clinicalness we could have had sixty. We broke your line at will, and apart from a couple of penalties you never looked like getting out of your half. My mate who came along today and who is neutral made the comment that York had given up and didnt look interested after 50 or so minutes.
Up until 30 mins was actually quite impressed with your defence as we had a hell of alot of possession and territory that you did really well to withstand.
Only my opinion but your backs look very handy. However your forwards on today's basis anyway look lightweight and not physical enough, either in attack or defence.
