It is a shame Coolie is awol as he could give us the facts on the batley team from his neighbours dogs hairdresser who once had a driving lesson from a guy who stood next to a guy at a bus stop who knows everything! Failing that Tranqualizer could get something from his bumper book of rugby facts 1972 to bore us with?

Typical Dog *hite put it this way, its your moment of glory this season.If you dont win owt this season it will be another 93 years.Youve over spent and your pathetic support for a team in the top four beggars belief.

Can't argue about the crowds, majorly disappointing. But the other top clubs are struggling too in comparison to what they would expect.

You have nothing to worry about as far as our finances go though. The club is doing very nicely indeed, thanks to some very shrewd ownership. Yes we cant afford to splash the cash, but there arent any problems or makor debts. And we may lose a couple of players as we can't offer the same wages as other clubs can. That's life, and we'll move on and find others.

I'm sure it's only 3 years since we last won something too. Same as you lot.

WHAT A MUPPET. Knowing our luck you would turn up on the rescue ship.THE S.S SINKING PUPPY.

On a serious note if rumours are correct its a credit to your players for still putting in the performances that they are doing.Cant wait to have a couple with us next season,with that attitude.

Hard to tell as this season we have not thought about it as we still have plenty to play for. However, Dewsbury on the other hand. . . . . . .

Returning to the topic, I think our injury/non-selection problems/poser will see us taste defeat unfortunately this week.

As CF says I think our two victories over halifax so far this year will count for naught - a BP would be our best hope I think.

 

Rams 16 - 28 Fax

Have to agree. A game we could win, but think Fax will be ready this time and the Toy Town win might work against us. We need BP at least though. Weather forecast not great so lets hope the lack of seaside and country walk conditions boosts the gate...

Halifax did what Halifax are good at, getting on a roll and playing open rugby so credit to them. They slowed the play the balll much better than we did. Thought we we pretty decent, outmuscled upfront, some kicking was a bit wayward, some was poor esp lack of 40/20s. But can't fault the effort, application or anything else, a good performance against a very good side. If we can get Spicer and one or two others back for next 5 winnable games, things are looking good.

But they stuck at it, even saw a good run from Pryce, took a very poor pass on his own line, put in a crunching tackle on Tyrer, saved a try when Morton mis kicked a ball in -goal, so yes he should take the ball up harder but he makes zero errors, draws defenders and still does this whilst carrying an injury.

Vinyl Finnegan is poor defensively, he cannot man mark. So yes time for Craven.

On a separate note, is it me or do the Halifax players spend most of their time whingeing at the ref and each other?

Probably whining to the ref about the constant head shots that were going in and not getting penalties for them, the ref was totally ###### and was surprised there wasn't loads if punch ups, he didn't control the game well at all.

Quite an entertaining game for the most part. Dewsbury started brightly, but once Fax got 12 points in front they were never going to lose. The Rams never gave up, but didn't have the guile to get back into it.

It was one man rugby for most of the game. Finigan should be dropped - simply awful. Scott had another bad game and went missing again in defense and cost us two tries. Craven back at full-back and Pryce on the wing. Still need another centre as Scott isn't good enough. On the plus side I was impressed again with Lillycrop, Hepworth and Walshaw. Morton is the new Bryn Powell and Bentley looks to be strong running from dummy half. 

 

Bring on Workington!
