Think somebody needs to take a chill pill and think about the tremendous season we've had!! 

 

Its all down to opinion and whilst we may not agree with decisions made yesterday the recent weeks have definitely been the most enjoyable that I've experienced in the 8 years I've watched Batley 

 

So the question I'd put to the dogs faithful isl  " has JK given you the the best ever post war Batley team ?" - certainly they are the best in my memory.

Think you had two tough games prior to final Eagles had 9 days rest , thought you played very well, had Eagles rattled but they have 2 great strike players in Yere and QLT. And a complete idiot in Taulapapa, he did the same at Dewsbury, I just thought it was a one off then, obviously he needs to be shown error of his ways either by his club or RFL.

You need to read the laws of the game.  

 

The third is a penalty, whether or not the offside player is looking.  He got in the way of the ball, bad luck - it's still a penalty.  The touch judge told the referee that Walker threw the ball at him deliberately - he still gave a penalty.  That's the rule.

Maybe you should too Griff. This is taken from the RFL site's rules of the game...

 

Accidental off side...If the catcher deliberately and unnecessarily runs into the off side player then play should proceed.

Accidental off side Where the Referee is satisfied that interference with play by an off side player is accidental he should order a scrum. 

 

Walker deliberately passed the ball in to the Batley player, he picked the ball up from dummy half, looked at him, dummied, then looked at him again again and passed the ball at him deliberately, therefore it should have been a scrum.

 

The other shocker was Moore's half break on the Sheffield line, the ball came free backwards and the ref gave a scrum for a knock-on. Whatever the ref deemed to have happened there, it could not be a knock-on. Either Moore's ball carrying arm hit the floor and he passed it out, in which case it was a penalty to Sheffield. Or as the ref had not shouted held, then the pass was fair, (it definitely went backwards from Moore) and then it should have been play on and a try. But whatever else it was, there was no knock-on.

 

I'm not blaming the ref for the loss, he didn't help, we blew 3 or 4 chances to win the game, but we made the errors that cost us the game ultimately.

 

I still cannot understand why we had to have second rate officials for a game as big as this though? The RFL have professional Full-Time referees on the payroll, these are supposedly the best in game, there were no other games being played that day, so why on earth did we have second rate officials for a game of that magnitude?

Well, the Championship final should also be for the best Championship officials in my opinion.Bringing in SL officials just wouldn't seem correct, once again in my opinion.

The quote from Law 11 is ....

 

Accidental interference If the interference with play is accidental, a scrum should be formed. Interference should not be considered accidental when the player concerned has had opportunity to remove himself from the area in which play is taking place.

I don't think so. I'd go for the side that played in the Lancashire League plus games against the top Yorkshire sides and contained the likes of Tommy Martyn, Stan Gittins and Phil Doyle plus two Yorkshire County shadow squad members in Holmes and Toohey. Others might go for the team that contained the likes of Storey, Gibson, the Wilson brothers, Scott and briefly Cunningham. Still others might favour the side that was second in the old second division and should have been promoted into division one but for the formation of Super League. Some real old timers might point to the 1952 squad that did the double over a strong Wigan outfit and reached the final of the Yorkshire Cup.

A reasonable debate mind, and we have certainly punched above our weight in recent seasons
