In Topic: sunday's squad

A bit puzzled by Southernwood's absence. The article on the website suggests he is not injured. JK has lamented our lack of a regular half back pairing all season, so if his omission is tactical it is hard to understand. I worry that JK has that squad rotation mentality. At our level, and in our position, we simply have to put out our strongest team all of the time. If it is the last option, is it JK not understanding how important this game is to all of us?

I am also baffled by the absence of Southernwood and Hirst. It also prompts the question why didn't Batley sign another halfback before the transfer deadline.

With one halfback on the field Batley went from a top six position in the league to a bottom two position.

Dewsbury to win by 14 points. Dewsbury will probably rest 'key' players against Leigh.

Realistically, Campbell is far too talented for a club of our current standing. Even given his various indiscretions, we've done well to keep him for so long.
However, I've heard that he loves Batley and has previously turned down higher profile outfits to stay with us. Losing a guy who has such an affinity with the club would be a huge blow in terms of both the playing side of things and the confidence of fans around our ability to retain quality personnel.
Hopefully the rumours aren't accurate.

I hope Campbell shows a bit of loyalty to the club. The club have signed him on in previous seasons despite his off the field problems.

Third game in just over a week for Batley against the best side in the Championship who will want to improve on last weeks defeat.


Batley 6 Leigh 68 if it is a dry day. The weather and playing uphill in the first half might keep the score down.

Well, no news is good news in the present situation, and after Whitehaven beat Hunslet and Workington took a point at Dewsbury, we are now tenth in the table, with some tough games coming up.

Given the site a new coat of paint, as well....


Only positive today is that Leigh lost at long last ...

The big negative about Leigh losing is that they play Batley next Sunday. Leigh must have had a bad day at the office today.  Cannot see Leigh having a bad performance two weeks in a row. They will play well next week which is bad news for Batley's points difference.
