Batley play like us in general terms , big and strong and rely on bullying muscle up the guts to lay a platform and get dominance . They have more strike behind though , in particular a gem of a back three , and they have controlling halves . And that extra threat behind the scrum separates the top 5 from the rest . We've all got the biff , and some good halves are around ,but the cream have the creativity and class alround behind the pack to get full value for the yards made and territory gained . These teams can turn pressure into points with what they have . They also do the basics , defend their line , minimise their errors and grind you down - they generally do what they do at a consistent level for 80 or thereabouts. Recipe for getting into the top 5 !! You've just got to do your best at these teams and compete as best you can . Any bonus point is one gained
TBF David the difference at home was three soft tries in the first half and their halfback playing with his slippers on and putting the ball in the clouds. You wont be 40/1 when you turn them over . They only got out of their half twice in the second half ??
