Oh for goodness sake. Been watching Batley since 1948 and the refs have either been good (Batley win) or ###### (Batley lose). Nothing changes except the players and their performances.We have had plenty of class players and many of them have been talented enough to override poor refereeing performances. Talent comes and goes. In 60 years I have seen players who could have held their own in todays super league and others who just gave their all for the BRLFC cause.Lets not continue the 'ref was rubbish' please. Many where not up to what we thought they should be but were still a credit to their trade.
on the flip side thou, after all the lads do all week at work,and then all the hours on the training grounds and fitness rooms is it really so much to ask nowadays to have officials who can let the game flow but also keep things in check,far too many simple mistakes not only spoil games but can now cost another club points along with a big chunk a £££ at end a season, i know its up to the players to just get on with it but should they expect better from these officials.
