I feel we will make the top 8 and possibly higher, 6th would be a top season. I predict we will upset some of the so called bigger teams in our division and  am also hoping for at least a 15% increase in attendances. This team looks to have a lot more to offer. I cannot wait

My abiding memory of Billy Allen was a terrific try he scored at Keighley. He was a good second row for us.

Could only be the Tomlinson and Lawford partnership both terrific players. In a other post Will Cordwell mentioned Alan Watts I remember him as a tackle anyone player very hard working was Alan. Agree with Nick that the Tomlinson Booth pairing was a top half back pairing.

I enjoyed the hit out on Boxing day and obviously both teams will improve. Both were missing key players but as a Batley supporter one of the plusses for me was the performances of both our wingers and more so the centres. I thought  Ainscough was full of class ,running and strength and Squires was not far behind. I predict Faal will have to play very, very, well to retake the shirt from him. But early days. Lillycrop was tireless as for Grayston I thought he did OK in a position he is not used to playing in . Rettie is a bustling winger who likes to get into the opposition and wind them up but he also knows where the tryline is and as for Campbell welcome back I predict 10 to 15 trys from him in the coming season. If our forwards can get on top of teams this season and our half backs get the ball wide a top six finish is not out of the question.  

     As for Dewsbury they will be there or thereabouts this season they have key players to come in and a a good coach. Happy new year everybody and bring on the season I predict exciting times ahead.

i think phildog made a valid point we are light on backs again . halfs are leek leatherbarrow cain and maybe granston then centers and wingers are ainsco campbell rettie and faal sqires .then utility are brev and maybe chandler . then lots of fowards .

We have cover in most positions Toffee just the halves. But saying that Leek was looking quite handy I have faith in the coach so lets get on with supporting what we hope will be a winning team next season.
