TBH, some Rams fans were jumping up and down like they'd just won the Championship when Schofield intercepted Rowe's very sloppy pass. Shows how far you've fallen I guess when your fans celebrate a loss so heartily.

To be fair I think most of us expected less than that, hence our celebrations. As you say in your earlier post you weren't happy conceding the bonus point and this suggests you really shouldn't be conceding this to a team outside the top 5? Swings and roundabouts? We played better than I expected and think the dogs actually came down a bit to play poor, otherwise you would have made sure we were no where near the BP, missing the chance to take it from us at the death when we gave you the ball back on our line.


The future's bright, the future's RED AMBER & BLACK!

Very pleased we got an unexpected bonus point. I was most surprised at half time that we were only 6-0 down, given the amount of possession Batley had enjoyed. In fact It was only very poor tackling which allowed Johnson to score; when will the Dewsbury players learn to grab an opponents legs? Mind you a prop forward attempting to tackle a wingman should have brought him down, but we prefer to dance with our opponents!

Their tries in the second half were from horrifically bad positional play with nobody out wide; fair play to Batley for spotting this. I was pleased with Schofield's performance; he has waited a long time for his chance and read the interception well for his score. I thought Goulding should have been a little further out with his conversation attempt to reduce the angle, so was not surprised when he didn't convert.
Legs, Dews, Legs.

We're allowed to celebrate tries, especially ones that secure us valuable league points!

 

Perhaps it's more a reflection of how far Batley have come that visiting sides are pleased to come away with a bonus point?

 

We have a young, inexperienced team and were missing five players who'd normally be automatic picks in our 17, so to come away with something was an unexpected bonus. Though I do think on balance we deserved it.

 

Thought Morton was excellent apart from his error in the second half, but he wasn't alone in making individual mistakes.

 

Decision making poor at times. Trying to kick for touch from a tap 20 in the first half was an unnecessary risk after we'd just defended back to back sets.

 

Watkinson's ill-fated flirtation with the touchline from the second half kick-off set us back, as did his high tackle immediately after Batley had gone 10-6 up. Silly errors in judgement, but they are young players and the composure will hopefully come.

 

Thought we were unlucky to have a try chalked off as there didn't appear to be a shove.

 

Goalline defence very good. Moved up quickly but as a line and forced them to resort to solo efforts for the most part.

 

Few shouts from the terraces that there was too much one up rugby from us, but I felt it was working and we were winning the forward battle.

 

Batley made too many yards from broken play. Greg Johnson looks an excellent player and with Potts and Campbell, they probably have one of - if not the - best back threes in the league.

 

They're also great at getting 'a roll on' from dummy half, and perhaps we could have been more wise to this after they did it to us last time.

 

Tebb and Schofield did very well when they came on. Good to know that we have those options with Wright out of action and question marks over O'Brien's availability.

 

Barrow next week is a big game! Up the Rams!

Tom I had a clear view of it and Johnny Campbell was clearly pushed from behind and impeded.

What a ****.  If you were fighting for your place in the Champioship you would have been celebrating.  If you care to look the bottom of the table is tighter than BSJs wallet and a bonus point was pretty good news for us.  If it was worth you posting I reckon it must have grated a bit too, so I feel even better....

Got to agree with Nick D in principal.

 

With the amount of ball and territory we had, in the main thanks to the numerous Rams handling areas (the majority taking place in their own 30), we should have scored lots more points.

 

We lacked the invention to do it though sadly, bar the 5 minute spell where we scored 2 very decent tries.

 

As a result I can see why the Rams would be pleased with a BP. Long term, them being behind us at the moment in terms of on the field success probably does irk the fans and club alike, but you've got to look at in terms of the short term parameters. I think we would have been exactly the same pre 2010 when we struggled for a good 4-5 seasons, with the main objective being to stay in the division.

Don't agree with him being a **** but agree on every other point. Some supporters have a very short memory. I mean, it's not that long ago when we were really struggling to stay in this division and an away bonus point would have been a real cause for celebration.

Sigh. Actually, I'm not a ****, I was just making an observation based on some of the people sat around me. Seeing as you seem to have such a strong opinion of me, please feel free to come and say hello personally next time you come to the Mount. I sit at the top of the Wheatfield Hospice Stand.

It's no wonder these forums are dying with such well reasoned debate.

Yeah, I'm sort of beginning to understand why coolie has jacked this in, TBF. A better way of "getting a life" would actually be to do something a bit more normal than indulging in a spot of keyboard-warrioring every evening. And you've never taken umbrage at anything ever written on here, have you?!!

**** is Dewsbury for what a nice chap so please don't take offence. My main point was that if it irritated either you or those around you then you clearly have forgotten what it's like to follow a team in danger of relegation to the Southern inferior league and almost certain lifelong misery. If its all the same I won't pop along and say hello. You're almost certainly bigger and tougher than me and I hate pain.....
