Your part time use of deodorant and toothpaste was apparently evident on the bus again.

Im on the bus for the long trip to London, make sure you bring your Lynx Africa with you.

I prefer 'Axe' - a cheaper alternative available from all B&M stores which is equally effective in terms of round the clock dryness. Fresh!

I like Southernwood, he's a decent young player who has time on his side.
I'm afraid that we're really in limbo land when it comes to top quality half-backs, though. Promising youngster like Southernwood are always going to be our staple, as any experienced players with proven ability will inevitably go to the highest bidders - with whom we can't compete. A Briggs or a Murrell would improve our already decent team by 20-30%, but recruiting a player of that ilk is never going to happen whilst we're up against clubs with much greater financial clout than ourselves.

Worst performance of the season by a mile, which probably makes the win doubly pleasing.

This is a batley fans forum and if a fan wants to talk about a particular player joining another club then that is fine. It doesn't say we are only allowed to talk about a topic if it is directly related to our club.

I guess you're right. Free speech and all that.
However, this is genuinely the first time that I've ever known a member of this forum create a main thread in relation to another club being linked with a player who is of total irrelevance to Batley.
I just wondered why it wasn't posted on the Dewsbury forum? Additionally, I also wondered why the poster was so keen to inform us that the player would be signing before Good Friday?
Maybe I'm paranoid, or maybe the poster is on a 'wind-up'?

A great many fans have walked away at Hunslet since DR was introduced. I can't blame them either. I wouldn't want to be 'in bed' with or used as a reserve team by a bitter, traditional rival.
DR at Hunslet is being pushed all the way by a very ambitious coach who doesn't give a stuff about the club or its best interests and is desperate to enhance his prospects with the Rhinos. He'd pick Garry Schofield if Hetherington or McDermott told him to, just to crawl a few extra millimetres up their respective booties.
