  4. Its not just RL, its other sports that are suffering as well, most of RU clubs down here ran 4 or 5 teams and a vets team, most are now lucky to run 2 teams and a vets team and vets team is normally a mixture of old heads and 2nd teamers if their fixture is off so looking at a loss of 3 teams at clubs about 50 - 60 players and its the same with local amateur football clubs and cricket... so its not just amateur RL in demise.. its what can be done to turn round this trend
  5. http://www.batleybulldogs.co.uk/2017/07/20/walker-stays/ signed on for 2018 great news
  6. Think you are a bit harsh with Gareth Moore, would have liked him to stop with us as could open up defences and a great kicking game from hand as well as from ground, agree about the other two though.
  7. https://shop.londonbroncosrl.com/collections/ticketing/products/11-london-broncos-v-batley-bulldogs £17.50 for adults and £12.50 for concessions if got online, think last season you saved £2.50 so enough for a pre game 1/2 pint of beer as its that there darn Landon prices
  8. You can have my armchair in the 9'oyl its reet comfy, BUT all joking aside get well soon and back up to see the Bulldogs Billy
  9. its not been a great season at all in the midlands as quite a few clubs have struggled for players including my club when we have only on 2 occasions had the luxury of subs but still completed the season , hopefully next season will look better as a few of the u-16's will step up and with a ramped up off season recruitment campaign also give us a bigger player base to work on, which when you looked back 6 - 7 years ago there was a healthy junior competition in the midlands but with the loss of community coaches , it was allowed to die off as only a few of the clubs had enough volunteers in place to keep junior rugby going . With juniors Ravens are back to where we were 6 years ago due to hard work of Jason Spafford and also getting 6 level 2 coaches in the club which is seeing 50 plus juniors on a sunday over all age ranges and with not having to rely on community coaches

  14. My Deliberate mistake thanks for pointing it out ,now amended
  15. Batley did one last season where it was 7 games for £70 which i got as a shift worker and also 130 mile away, was pointless getting a full season ticket as can't make every game, but for some reason didn't do one this season
