Put the big light on kev.
I know it wasnt a classic but I wouldnt mind being able to see the action.

Also nice to see so many batley fans after our first home game after the grand final....

Good run out for both teams. Fax's kicking game first half was much better than ours until leatherbarrow came on. Thought we wer the better side second half but lacked a cutting edge to take advantage. Enjpyed it tho

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

Slugfest throughout. Could've gone either way. Fax stretched our line at times but nothing in it really. Bring on the Saints :)

No ideas near the line as was the case in a lot of games last season. But on the plus side defence was outstanding and i dont think many packs will get the better of ours this season. Halifax never broke us which is a good sign. In my view we are definately a couple of quality threequarters light  but i still see a good season ahead. decent attendance too on a bitterly cold day. all in all more plusses than minuses .

kear said we'd be alright grand final not won in pre season as shown last year and we just need the killer touch can't wait for the pitch to dry up and i think leatherbarrow and leak could have plenty of field days

What was the attendance yesterday? Halifax didn't seem to bring as many as they usually do. The stands behind the posts are usually full for a Fax game.

Also, what are people thoughts on Reittie's try? The report suggests forward pass.

Think we deffo need another couple of halfbacks, black way past his best now & cant even get any distance kicking to touch, game change alot for the better when leatherbarrow came on & took over, also think we need a proper goal kicker coz pattersons no good, seem to be lacking in attack big style, its ok having a great defence but that doesn't score try's...

Must admit we looked short of ideas near their line yesterday. Certainly need to get some set moves practised. We had enough possession in the second half to have at least equalised if not win the game. Going on from that, why is it when we get a penalty in the opponents half we nearly always take a tap? We then have 2 or 3 drives which takes us up to the position we could have been in if we had kicked for touch and we would then have had the 6 tackles to try and drive over.

Agree re the goal kicking, Patterson does not seem to be very confident and missed at Dewsbury as well as yesterday. As we are likely to have forward dominated, low scoring matches the ability to take any points on offer by the way of penalties and especially conversions is vitally important.

Deffo fred, there seems to be no fire at moment or someone like flanners who scared defences with his darting runs....

Didnt miss miss that at all but still didn't get anywere near a result, especially the 1st half, i think we was clueless nr the line with the possesion we had, think fax was much better than us in the 1st 40 especially kicking wise, like i said, we got much better with introduction of leatherbarrow & i think him and leak could work well together
