A good entertaining game and a well earned bonus point.
But for a few mistakes it could have been all 3. The batley support was great today. Hopefully we will get a win against leigh on thursday.

Very fair result which could have gone either way in the end, well done Batley, great game and your halves showed us up to be honest. Referee had some dubious calls but I think over all worked out 50/50 for once. Other than the after match fracas in south stand bar area a good day all round.

Great support by you guys so thank you .

I think Mr Merrick completely dispensed with the offside rule today. Some of the positioning was absolutely ridiculous (for both sides).

I thought it was an outstanding game of rugby league, but I always had the nagging doubt we would lose all the way through and so it sadly proved!

Good game with the lead changing 7 times what more could you ask for (but a win lol).

Sadly I think we lost the game rather than Fax winning it but I have no complaints the guys gave everything they could

Now where did I leave that pointy thing that bloke Damocles gave me, I've work to do!

best game a rugby for a long time, the lads did us proud and gave their all,the pace a johnson was super and am sure he will be off to pastures new. ref were a bit naff both ways but we seemed to get pinned for head eyes but fax got away with a few and a couple a elbows from tonnka, am not sure how a player can be deemed to have made a play at the ball giving another set when hes backs turned to the ball so cant even see it never mind play at it, anyways well done batley on a great game but fax just saved a few moves until late in the game and looked slightly fitter. thanks to the fax staff too for really looking after us.
