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.
