I'm affraid i see a closly fought contest coming down to desire and for that reason alone i think the dogs will beat us by 10 points.

The problem with fax is you never know who is going to turn up and perform, if the first 4 games are to go by then i think a dull boring game from us is to be expected, i hope im wrong and its extremely exciting and that we win denying you a bonus point, ( for obvious season end reasons ).

Not sure about this game, fax are unbeaten, going to go 21. 20 to the DOGS, but we have a lot to thankfax for, if they hadn't have beaten us 72.0, gt may have stayed a few more games, leaving it too late for Karl and handforth to save us from relegation, then they took Karl off us, meaning we could progress further by signing the flair players from fax that Karl didn't want like blackie, and miles, yes thank you halifax, hope it's a great game tomorrow, with Batley coming out on top

Just seen on the fax forum, the referee is Mr George Stokes

I dont think that was the only factor in him going Bob - the dreadful performances all that season and the 2 previous ones, and the walloping at home by Toulouse on the Easter Monday after were all straws that broke this particular Donkeys back.

That being said, the game on Thursday has all the makings of a cracker, and i couldnt call it either way if im honest, Halifax are due an improved performance and we are coming off the back of an indifferent performance at Barrow, albeit in tought circumstances with the travel on a Thursday and the bitterly cold night it was.All set for a really enjoyable game and cant wait.

What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

I remember walking out of The Shay that evening thinking it could not get any worse, and then leaving the Mount after Toulouse and realising it had.
Anyway, close tonight. Halifax unbeaten and therefore slight favourites. Nothing to choose between the two sides.

it really could go either way. i cant see there being much more than 6pts in it. Based on the last few encounters between both sides it will be a cracker!.

Halifax have won all four games so far, but judging by their performances, they haven't been convincing. With that in mind I can only see a Batley victory.

Batley 30 - 16 Halifax.

Att: 922.

just watched the game myself, you can't beat end to end rugby I thoroughly enjoyed it, good result for both teams really one that could have gone either way, couldn't see if the kick Tom was denied really missed or not but he wasn't pleased with that decision that's for certain.
