For me their was nothing between the 2 teams today as the kiwis got a lucky try that's all. But if you chance your arm it sometimes pays off like it did today. I think the kiwis just about edged it today and I think it was a fair result. All in all I think we played very well for most of the game especially the pack but for me Widdop and Williams went missing today for some reason whether that's because the kiwis gave them less space or they just had off days who knows. But without your 6 and 7 creating and steering the team around it's always going to be hard to create anything as we seemed to be relying on our pack too much today and when Williams and Widdop got the ball their execution was very poor IMO. It says it all when our best kick of the match came from our hooker.

Us fev have just signed john davis from the seagulls on a 3 year contract his he gonna give us that little bit extra next season ?? Info pls from batley fans

He's a great signing plug him and tonka were Eagles 2 best forwards last season for me. I agree with the posts above he does look a bit un fit but if sharp can get him fit he will be a massive asset IMO.

The question is would you give 100% for a team when you had not been paid what you had been promised?

This again come on it's all rumours. Until its official its cobblers as far as I'm concerned. Most of this squad we have this season wasn't good enough and that's the truth.The league table doesn't lie and we were the 5th best team in our league last season.

You always played a lot better when he was in the team fact

All I will say is that he's gone and I'm happy about it.Dont get me wrong on his day he's class but those days are few and far between. Consistency isn't moores strong point if it was I'm sure he would be in SL.

Im not sure On Sheffield, as with Fev its hard to piut a new team together in such a short time and expect them to perform. Fax wont be amongst that group, other teams can hope we are but the reality is we finished the normal season as the form team in the championship and 2nd best championship team in the qualifiers hammering both Bradford and Leigh. I said last season I would be dissapointed if we did not have a chance of 4th spot with 2 or 3 games to go, next season I am expecting more and I would be disappointed if we were not in with a shout of top 2 with 2 or 3 games to go.

The money difference is massive and if we were bottom of the qualifiers the money was been spent on setting up a reserve grade and keeping the current squad together with a few addition quality signings. We now have nearly an extra £300K to spend than we planned for. Thats nearly as much money spare as what a lot of the teams in the bottom 8 will get, if we use it wisely we will go far.

I agree with all the above but money doesn't guarantee anything as we found out this season. I know you will probably announce more signings in due course but signing players like Moore wouldn't get me excited about being guaranteed a top 4 spot. But like I say anything can happen during a season like we found out this season. Injuries form etc all play a massive part in how the season unfolds. At this present time there is only Leigh I would guarantee a top 4 slot to the rest is up for grabs IMO.
