No but all you want is a fair crack of the whip, we may well still have been beaten but when you watch the Ref the entire second half not turn his head either left or right when in the Batley defensive line, well you need to ask if he is up to the job of reffing at this level.

Rugby League must be a great game to survive the fools at the RFL who run it.

no bulldoggystyle you deserved your win and we should have got a bonus point. You showed higher intensity in your play something we are struggling to come to terms with in this league. However the ref was inconsistent with is decisions and missed lots but as i say you deserved the win.

There was a lot of shouts of "cheat" to both the ref and his TJ's but they are not cheats. What they are is totally incompetent!!!

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Simple question for you Bulldoggystyle, were the Dogs never offside all the game in your honest opinion? Never once pulled up for offside by Stokes.

Generally, the standard of this division is such that any mistakes, by anyone on the pitch, are exploited. The best teams in this division play for a full 80 minutes and do not let their level slip at all. We have scored in the last minute of our last three matches now which pleases me.
You all seem to be saying the same things about your team. Experience would suggest that you need to change something because, even if it's a cliche, it's true, you keep doing the same things, you will keep getting the same results.
Oh and one other thing, Batley are a decent side, don't lose sight of that!!

He wasnt good marra, but he doesnt miss tackles, knock on at the play the ball (twice), and kick the ball down the full backs throat time and time again, we all now that there isnt a goodun in the league, but its easier to blame the man in the middle than our own heroes ;)

I quite agree with your comments but there were so many 50 - 50 calls today that went against us it does raise the hackles. As I said in an earlier post nearly every up and under you put up today there was 3 or 4 players in front of the kicker who got within the 10 metres of the player trying to make a catch. Never once were you pulled up for it. Late in the second half right in front of us a Batley player knocked on and he gave a scrum to Batley.

paying £14 to watch semi pro sport you just expect consistency from the officials. We scored a try off the back of a free kick awarded in the middle of the park, as an offence was spotted by the TJ from is position even though it was bang in front of the referee.
That sums the refs performance up really

The word ' Intensity ' has been used by a few on here, and they are spot on, it's what we are lacking against the better of these championship teams. You have to build intensity and pressure, apart from the second half against barrow, we have failed to do that. We seem unable to get repeat sets due to a lack of nous on the last tackle.
With the players we had out today I thought it was a great effort from the boys, if the Ref had spotted a blatant Batley knock on in their half, they wouldn't have had possesion to score the last try.
Special mention to Acton and Walne for their amazing work rate, Brett Carter was immense and Callum Phillips ran his blood to water, it was great to see Elliot back again, he looked in great nick.
The Haven game is massive for us now, if we can get some of our crocks back, I'm still confident we can turn them over despite their win today.

Ok, fair enough, we won purely because the ref and his AR's were cheats or incompetent! I sincerely hope that your coaches do not believe this because if they do, you will be playing elsewhere bext season.

the intensity levels in this league are what makes it tough IMO. Its a big step up from C1. We have to match other teams intensity with and without the ball. Conceneration and fitness are key to that. Yeah despite the defeat there was some good individual performances.

im sure the same could be said for workington........but we wont discuss those eh ?
Im waiting for someone to say they saw the ref in the Bookies before the game having a score on Batley.
I think we can all agree that referess are incompetent most of the time and they do get things wrong but I dont think the referee changed the result of this game.

not one person has said we would have won if there was a different ref. you were the better team for much of the game. we probably deserved a bonus point but from what i seen today batley are one of the top teams in this division and will be in and around the medals come playoffs.although you scored at the end you certainly tired badly in the 2nd half.
the futures bright,the futures blue and white

That ref was abysmal today, the only thing worse than him was our kicking game in the first half. We really need a half back that takes the line on, and to be fair thats what forber did when he came on. But all that matters little if we keep making such bad mistakes with the ball in attacking positions. How many times did we drop the ball under no pressure when attacking. But back to the ref, the inconsistent git. he was terrible, just terrible. For example, they kick the ball forward at the play the ball, play on. We do the same, batley ball. Our player is dragged over the line, that's OK. Literally minutes later we get penalised for exactly the same thing. And God only knows why they got put in at a scrum where the only knock on came from a batley player. Embarrassingly bad.

Our goal line defence needs looking at to . Soft tries are coming way to often and they're killing us .

bulldoggystyle refs can be incompetent but they have to be consistent. The man didn't know what he was doing.
