I like the idea, Kevin. It offers a saving for the regular fan whilst reducing the upfront cost.

Worth a punt for a year and see how it goes.

Point taken - however unless excitement is brown and lumpy I doubt I'd be excited as such. Still, best not stray off topic eh ? Don't want to upset sergeant major Marketram.  :onthequiet:

Sergeant majors don't spit out their dummies, Grumpy.

Showing your age, Coolie.

At least 18 in 1971 puts you nearly in OAP territory.

No wonder you get on so well with BSJ.

Just a couple of points, if I may, Greavsey.

Firstly, I doubt the coach forbade "the more attacking approach."

I think the close defeats are more to do with out playmakers not being good enough - enough of the time.

Injuries to 6,7,9 & 13 for extended periods didn't help, and we've seen on occasion that they can play expansive and entertaining rugby. As you imply, if rumours are to be believed, our fortunes should pick up next season.

Since the early '80s (and probably before I started watching Batley), I don't think it's a coincidence that our most successful periods have coincided with halfbacks willing and able to open up the opposition with apparent ease. Tommo, Moore, Handforth & Black could all do it.
