We have all been rather subdued on the forum for a while now. I reckon it's about time we got excited about this weekend. Both teams coming off victories this last week, so should be a decent game. Post your news of teams, rumours and injuries below, and hopefully Piggy's Mate and Coolie will post their profound thoughts on the match!

 

For what its worth I think we should win but can't say I am overly confident as it's a local derby and our noisy neighbours will be up for it I am sure.

Major factor is....

which dewsbury team turns up...
the top performers against halifax

or

the charlie caroli clowns of the tower circus
sunday we had the clowns..who who put an insomniac to the land of nod.
so we could have the world beaters...
and as the halifax game im not going to attend just to see if its a "coolie hoodoo" that we perform better when im absent.
think the dogs will be too good for us in their own doggie pen....
would be happy with a bonus point.
tips for sunday batley go down the slope first have..we turn around at halftime full of promise thinking job is done...but fall seriously flat second half 34- 14....if were lucky

attendance a pathetic 1024..if batley are lucky.

I disagree, if it was just another game why will it draw a bigger crowd than Swinton, Keighley etc? But my point is, regardless of \dewsbury, we rarely discuss the matches on here anymore. We are as successful as we have been for the last 20 years just about and yet this does not generate any excitement.

 

So anyway, as I said, I think we will win, but not by a great amount with a crowd that is lower than the term deserve, and us moving into the top three, to stay there for the rest of the season!

Coolie makes a very good point, however more optimism please...

From what I've seen, this could be the slippy banana. Dewsbury proved against Fax that they can play when they want to, whilst we have shown than we also can play but only in spurts. Lets start getting the ball across the full line and give our undoubted threequarters the space they can make other teams suffer.

Add a few o our usual little defensive blunders and the Rams will no doubt take advantage. They are no mugs but neither are we. As long as we turn up believing in our ability.

Looks like a good game to me with (hopefully) the dogs by 12.

Mount Pleasant ennui maybe?

 

My heart says a Rams valiant win but my head says a stroll for the Dogs with a disappointingly poor attendance.

I can't be bothered with ennui!

 

Anyway, or should that be ennuway, I am being positive about this weekend. Lovely day, big crowd and a titanic struggle between two close neighbours!

 

On the Batley front, does anyone have any team news? Or would someone like to hazard a guess at the two likely teams?

Mount Pleasant ennui maybe?

At a guess the 2 likely teams will be
























batley & dewsbury

serves me right for coping out of piggys book ;)

seriously now i hope batley has loads of injuries and dewsbury has players in...who have been injured (LOUD COUGH whisper out of favour) back in the ranks to at least make it a close game ;)

I'd like to think after the last few performances we are due to start playing something like we are capable of at some point in the near future.

Sunday would be a good time to turn it round.

Batley to edge a dour game between two sides who can both play much better.

I wont guess the attendance but Batley to lose their Rams turnstile gamble with not many Dewsbury fans turning up as per the norm.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

I think Coolie has a point and I for one will go through the Rams turnstile as it is obvious they need Batley's charity and as most Dewsbury fans are tagged and are not allowed to pass the town boundry it is not surprising they do not travel unlike our own true supporters. As further dedication to the sad plight of our brothers and sisters from the poor side of the valley I will be taking buckets to our next away fixture at Swinton for their noble cause to build a mediocre team and perhaps any surplus could be used to expand their small inferior ground to bring it upto a similar standard to that enjoyed by the likes of Keighley and Shawcross Sharks. I for one will do all I can to slow the continued demise of this once decent club in the hope that one day they may give us a game. If you too feel the pain of the Rams please make cheques and postal orders out to the.........

I thought we controlled the game pretty well apart from a 15 minute spell in the second half. Seemed like we almost planned to blitz them in the last 20 minutes when we seemed to have a strange setup with virtually all our playmakers on the park at the same time. Defences were well on top throughout.

Oh, and Merrick was awful.

Hurray for the Batley wingers for giving us something to shout about, and Moore for his second half performance. A bit tame, though, for a local derby.
