Fev were dominant for most of second half against Sheffield and had Hardman not had the ball stripped which led to a try when Fev were on top that game would have had a different ending believe me; We had one half back and looked rudderless in first half and should we meet Sheffield again I think the tide can be turned and they haven't beaten Donny yet; Whoever we play it will be tough; Remember Batley last year???

Well played Leigh..superior in every department; Faster, stronger more physical and well executed moves; Can't see anyone stopping you from lifting the grand final trophy either; FEV need to regroup and rebuild this game simply showed the difference in class;

It is the style of play that Rovers play I'm afraid by using our strengths out wide; It so happened that Finn could kick some beauties especially in his run to his world record; However he could have off days and whether it be Moore or Rooney its good to have two on the field in case of injury as BOTH can kick a ball;

Just saying it how it is. When it comes to the Championship ask most fans who the bigger team is, or ask players which team they would much rather play for if they had the choice, Im not sure Batley would fair too well. It would be the same if you compared Leigh to Fax with Leigh faring a lot better. Its really not rocket science.


Batley have shown on their day they can compete with the top clubs in this division but over the length of the season they are struggling to stay in the division where as Fax and Donny are probably over achieving competing for 2nd against teams that have spent much more money Batley are probably under achieving.

Arrogance beyond belief...(Fev fan)

#2963711 Next Season

Did you expect them to make it easy? I would hazard a guess that if Dewsbury and Batley( if we both stay in this division) were extremely fortunate enough to gain entry to SL at the end of next season the  RFL rule book would go out of the window. The new rule would be that all teams beginning with the letter D or B are no longer allowed to play in SL due to Sky requirements, subject to bye law 42 which states that  this rule be waivered providing you have Bulls in your second name and bye law 43 which states that this must not contain Dog.    

....or any team that has been called a set of traffic lights between Wakey and Pontefract;

You've only got to ask yourselves...What is a multi millionaire doing standing by watching volunteers mainly pensioners build a stand? If he's that loaded why wasn't more hands on and financial help offered to get the job done quicker? I'm not saying he never helped in this project because I don't have the foggiest; But for all his gloating that to me would have been a priority;

god you lot don't half moan ...........its the reff`s fault we didn't  win .cheat cheat cheat zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
if you had won he would be the best reff ever, I am glad we didn't win you probably be asking for more of our players two add you your team ,,,O sorry the dons (B team )
LOL its was a good game from both sides,admit we didn't play as good as we could but 2 points will do

My thoughts are based on the four times he has reffed Fev ( won 2 drawn 1 lost 1) hardly any sour grapes there; He is inept; Despite the decision he made in awarding Doncasters last try I feel a draw was always going to be the final result; Cook has got Donny playing really well and I do hope you finish third; Good luck;

It's certainly good for the game as a whole to have clubs that are going places and generating a bit of interest and publicity. What is a shame is that Rovers used to be a tremendous role model for other small town clubs by the way that they developed their own talent. Through no fault of their own; I guess they can no longer pick up young lads of the quality that made them a force to be reckoned with in their pomp and hence they have to resort to out-bidding the other Championship clubs for the what talent is available. The SL clubs hoover most of the more promising young uns, and discard them just as readily if they seem not to make the grade.

I fully understand where you are coming from; You have got to remember Fev like other clubs before them have been stunted from growth with the licensing rule; Fev have been raided on many occasions for their star players and in many ways in the past the transfer fees have kept the club afloat; They have won the league title now for four years running and it would be crazy for anyone to begrudge them or any other club their ambition; It may or may not work out; Even we Fev fans await with baited breath; I've watched Fev since 1963 and believe me it feels just as alien to me that Fev are the ones brandishing the cash; The door is now open slightly for a chance to play at a higher level and whether it be Leigh Fev Halifax or even Batley who get their chance it has to be taken otherwise the game will stagnate even further;
