#3267587 New signing

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 04 February 2016 - 08:03 PM

We now have more three quarters than we have had combined in the last 2 seasons.

Great signing.

And quality three quarters at that, Buford, able to cover several positions.
I think JK has assembled an excellent squad this season given budget constraints.
Just need to stuff Leigh now...

#3263665 Team against London

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 28 January 2016 - 08:12 PM

Isn't Wikipedia great :lol:

Save your cheek for rams fans, PM.

I touched on most of Newton's and Einstein's theories in O- and A- level physics at skool.

Fortunately I seem to have retained enough grey matter to remember the principles involved.

i know mate,I'd already posted it when I saw it.

Fair enough. And it was wrong of me to mock the afflicted.

I can't think of a worse affliction than supporting the Rams.

We've had that joke already, Graham.
Do keep up.

#3259850 Return of the rubber ball and a possible world record?

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 19 January 2016 - 10:32 PM

I'd love AB to sign for us for 2016.
However, if he doesn't, it's not the end of the world - we have other decent wingers.
What he will have to weigh up in addition to Gary's comments (if he has been offered employment elsewhere): -
1. Likelihood of a regular place in each team (if he's offered p.a.y.p. - are there other wingers of a similar (or better) standard?)
2. Likelihood of winning bonus pay for each team?
3. Team spirit?
4. How much does he like running up that hill every other week?

I won't lose any sleep over it.

#3258677 Return of the rubber ball and a possible world record?

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 16 January 2016 - 06:48 PM

Actually, your response got me thinking! Has AB ever been top try scorer at Batley?


2015 - Wayne Reittie

2014 - Miles Greenwood

2013 - As above?

2012 - Potts?

2011 - ?

2010 - Johnny Campbell

He scored a top try at Blackpool in 2010, as I recall.

So yes, he has been a top try scorer for us.

#3258663 Sheffield away

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 16 January 2016 - 06:19 PM

Well they did used to play many games on Fridays when they were at the DVS, so it may not be a cunning ploy, more to do with the availability of the stadium.


(I never thought I'd find myself making excuses for Sheffield - please forgive me.)

Steady on, BSJ.

I like to flatter myself that we're a pretty broad-minded lot on this forum.

Most of us can probably forgive your gross pedantry, being Coolie's great-grandfather, and even being a Dewsbury supporter.


But standing up for the Seagulls...?

#3256435 Saints away.

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 10 January 2016 - 03:48 PM

TO bring a little sunshine into your lives, CF.


#3256261 Saints away.

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 09 January 2016 - 11:22 PM

Well as you imply, Graham, it's got nowt to do with me!

And I don't know (or care, being honest, as I won't be going!) what team the Rams will be taking - it's just that a number of posters on this thread & another seem to think it'll be a "reserves" team match.

That scenario seems unlikely, for the reasons I stated above.


I gather both teams fielded strong sides when the 'Dogs played Saints as part of the Walmsley deal the other year.

#3255924 Sky Bet latest Odds

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 08 January 2016 - 11:45 PM

Hypothetically speaking of course….
as in the bookies are saying Fax are the 6th worst team in the league...

No they're not, RPH.
They're trying to persuade you and hundreds of others to give them your money.

#3255688 Sky Bet latest Odds

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 08 January 2016 - 12:58 PM


As I noted on the Workington board whether you waste your money at 150-1 or 75-1 you've still wasted your money. Swinton, Oldham nor Batley are NOT going to top the League.

Probably a ploy by the bookies to get you to part with your hard-earned.

Don't fall for it!!!


Edit in upper case makes more sense!

#3253155 DR. Yes or No this season?

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 01 January 2016 - 01:36 AM

Looking at two bookies today I'm bemused by us being 150/1 rank outsiders . Oldham and Swinton are half that ?

Don't let it worry you David.
Workington won't win the league, neither will Oldham or Swinton.
So whether you throw your money away at 150-1 or 75-1, you've still thrown your money away.
Don't fall for the bookies' tricks.

#3253044 Happy New Year

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 31 December 2015 - 05:19 PM

Happy New Year to our friends across the valley and hope you nearly have as good a season as us.


Cheers Roger(Batley fan).

Corrected your error, Roger, although there are some who would hope Dewsbury have nowhere near as good a season as us. Personally, I don't care how far above the Rams we finish.


Happy New Year to all.

#3252610 Featherstone Rhinohawks

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 30 December 2015 - 06:29 PM

The dreaded DR lands at our friends from P.O.R.


So glad this isn't us again.  Worst thing ever for the game.

Nonsense. It's good for superdooper league therefore it's good for the rest of us.

We need to learn our place and be grateful for the scraps that we're given.

Where have you been for the last twenty years or so, Chairman?


#3251405 Roy Powell Trophy: Dewsbury Rams v Batley Bulldogs

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 26 December 2015 - 07:37 PM

Either way the cheater forwards looked far more likely with the ball in hand.

How old are you, Nick?

I'm guessing petulant teenager.
