I've heard/read that Dowes is out for the season with his injury. So that will he the end of time with us, as he has a job in London to go to.

Big day tomorrow could Keighley snatch a point. Batley  i think a point.Haven should get the 3 and Worky will get at least 1 possible 3.

Too hard to call. On paper Whitehaven should be safe and it should come down to who gets a bonus point against Fev or Donny. Head still says Batley should go down, but you can never trust that lot not to ruin my day and win...come on Donny....

If Batley don't go down expect a concerted legal challenge from whoever finishes below them.

If it isn't this year then recruitment issues will surely make them favourites for the drop next year. It would be simpler, although not easier, to drop down now.
Believe what you see, don't see what you believe.

Pretty sure the rfl will be hoping its Batley that goes down tomorrow,if not then expect a whole new can of worms opened up if its Keighley, can't blame them to be upset when they haven't broken any rules this season or last.Got a feeling Keighley will be the unlucky team to go.

Both teams will profit from cheating and it's ironic the cheats play each other today
Batley would stay in the division for their cheat and Doncaster will be at least one place higher in the league table resulting in a higher pay out

Fully expect a legal challenge and wouldn't rule out the appeals been overturned and the original 3 point deductions reinstated

This will all take place if batley get a point or better today
Hope Doncasters thought about this

And by denying them anything and sending them down

Closes the chapter.

Well done Batley, I look forward to next seasons derbys, provided of course the legal wranglings don't reinstate the points deduction and send you down. At the end of the day it should be results on the field and not cockups in the boardroom that determine which league you play in next year.

 

For RL to thrive in this area both clubs need to be competitive in the championship not languishing in CH1 IMO.


Ricochet!

Very disappointing. Let's hope justice is done and keighley get the legal eagles out and firing. Won't reflect well on our glorious game, but Batley knew the rules and flaunted them...
Of course had Fev done the decent thing and let Keighley hang on for the win we would have lost Whitehaven and one of our long distance trips....
