    Bulldogs v Eagles MOM thread shield game

    Very difficult choice, but for getting them on the front foot in the first place I'll go Davey Brambani then eeniy meeny miny mo Day. Which seems unfair on Manning, Cambell, Galbraith and others.

    Batley v Rochdale

    Gates such as we had on Sunday are not conducive to keeping players or attracting new ones. The BOD and those of you that work hard behind the scenes for the club deserve better. I hope we see quite a few more faces at the Eagles game.

    Big day tomorrow.........

    I have mixed feelings because it's good to see quality players playing in our division and I am glad to have seen players like MaGilvary and Minikin turning out for us. You make some decent points though and loans seem to be a better option than DR albeit that I wouldn't restrict them to just season long loans.

    Big day tomorrow.........

    Ainscough and Cowling were injured hence Minikin was invaluable to us. Mariano also played at centre, against Dewsbury, when Minikin was not available, as well as a few games in the pack.

    Batley A

    Faz was walking away I believe, but certainly played his part in the incident. I don't know if it's supposed to be a straight red for kicking but I was content to see a yellow card in the circumstances.

    Day apparently in the 19 (but still no Davey)

    Featherstone v Batley

    Cheers, thank you for the info. It's good to know that it is not as bad as the initial reports suggested.

    Featherstone v Batley

    Any news on Day? It sounded like a season ending injury.

    Featherstone v Batley

    You know when you go on holiday and cannot afford the de luxe 5 star option; and some spend all week moaning about this and that whilst others see the sea and the sunshine. It's not that a bit of moaning does anyone any harm, it's human nature. But those that moan all the time, however well intentioned those comments are, just kill the fun, the interest and the enthusiasm. They don't mean to but that is how it is.

    Well, you wouldn't want mass suicide this side of the valley, would you?

    Content to be also rans

    I do get your point Fred, but surely attendance figures effect most of the income streams that you mention.

    Content to be also rans

    Just to put things in a little bit of perspective, we are the third highest placed out of 22 part time teams. Considering our crowd base that's not a bad effort.

    Rowe, Davey, Farrell and Crookes

    I seem to remember that we pushed the financial envelope last year in the hope of having a good season. It may be that we are now having to cut back on our spending and it may be that some difficult choices are having to be made. This is, of course, speculation on my part.

    Champagne moment

    Lots to choose from with some terrific tries. However, I'm going to nominate Brown picking Barlow's pocket.

    Champagne moment

    Colin, I think that Joufret was involved in the Rettie try (although I stand to be corrected if my memory has let me down). The twitter thread on the match mentions him in the build up to four of the other tries. Incidentally, the thread also suggests that Scott played a part in four of the tries which perhaps shows what was missing at the Dewsbury game. I guess that you will know soon enough from the video.

    Dewsbury v Batley part 3

    I didn't realise that the rule(momentum rule) went that far back BSJ. Live and learn. Thank's for the info. It is difficult to police, but having re read the law you clearly wouldn't get away with my suggestion of lobbing it forward instead of a chip.I won't blather on any more about it as I'm wandering off thread somewhat (and digging my hole ever deeper)..

    Dewsbury v Batley part 3

    I was just being flippant BSJ; but you are right, of course, and the way that the law reads there seems to be nothing to stop a player throwing the ball forward as long as the recipient was behind the thrower when the ball was thrown. Imagine what an Alex Murphy or a Jonty Parkin would have done with such a law. A neat throw over the opposition for a pacey colleague to collect perhaps instead of a chip..

    Which, of course, was invented by a Dewsbury lad.

    Brown and Sowerby

    Brown at fullback? Sorry, just stirring. Actually, after 3 days of understandable moaning it's maybe time to move on. We need a good finish to the season if we are to retain/attract decent players. And, looking back, it was not all bad on Sunday. There were some very good individual performances; let down by a lack of cohesion at times. Brambani may have come back too soon; but will hopefully look sharper this Sunday. If Davey is available that will help too. Scotty at fullback (hopefully) will also help to oil the wheels. And if a certain Mr Rettie plays that will be a bonus. I might be singing a different tune next Monday but I find myself looking forward to the match.
