All Batley so far.

and Eagles go in again QLT try

 

It could be game over if Batley don't find their mojo again - their fans are very loud, they need to be their 18th man now and get their lads back in this

Those Batley fans behind the posts looked like a nice bunch.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Game over with Eagles giving Batley some of their own medicine with a DG - talk about a game of two halves

 

Lets remember whoever threw a bottle is one idiot and not a whole fanbase

Batley fans aren't like that - must be a "cup final hanger-on".

Who lets glass bottles inside the stadium in the first place? When I went to the milennium stadium I wasn't allowed to take a bluddy can of coke! I hope they find the culprits and ban them, disgrace.

Other than that it was quite an enjoyable game.

No club's hardcore week in week out following are 'like that', doesn't stop opposition fans from point scoring over every incident though!
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Well, I'm emotionally drained after that! Batley were superb for the first 55/60 minutes - dominated us down the middle, slowed down our play the balls, kicked well… basically, they did everything right. Once Brambani and Walker found their weakness down the right side they kicked there mercilessly and the game swung in our favour. Once we got that first try we looked unstoppable. Batley's discipline went, and their ability to keep hold of the ball vanished as well.

 

Fantastic to be Champions again and win back-to-back grand finals. Amazing scenes! That's why we're Champions  :biggrin:

Plastic bottles.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

The finals day produced some really good games.  Well done Sheffield.  They dug themselves out of a hole and showed their champion credentials by doing so.  Batley were great for most of the game but at the end of the day it's who goes for 80 minutes and the Eagles did that, in spite of their kicker having left his kicking boots on the other side of the Pennines!

They were plastic bottles.

Batley as a town must be rolling in money if they can afford to waste ale at LSV prices!

We were stood in the North Stand with the Batley fans in a bit of a Leyth colony at the front and it was a cracking atmosphere, bottle throwing numpties apart. Batley were superb the first half but it was a big ask to maintain such intensity and they didn't really convert their possession and territory in to tries when they had the chance. Fair play to Sheffield, they've had a marathon of a season.

Fair enough, I stand corrected. Still, if it was full it could still cause quite a bit of damage.

Very much so, but there's only so much you can do to legislate against the odd few idiots.

Careful.... I know you can take the the boy out of Cas but you..... and all that!!

I just think their enthusiasm is great and it affects people around them in a positive way

 

The last three finals have been between Cas lads.
