Wow .... That's what I call a kick n chase game .

Very very well drilled and coached indeed . Big lads , no errors , A1 kicking and smother .

Brett carter . Our silly errors again make things an uphill struggle , and our long kicking game is a massive contrast to theirs.

Poor choices and poor as usual in creativity. Add a poor ref giving us none of the 50/50 calls means it a BP at best. Batley far quicker with and without the ball. We are desperate for a good half back.

Their try from offside was Coyle ... He just couldn't get back !

Managed to snatch nothing from the jaws of something in true town style. Halfbacks the problem? Just a guess......

Lots of effort lots of commitment but I'm afraid in this league it isn't enough . You must be able to do the basics in attack and defence , and if you can't defend your line , can't collect bombs , can't cut out silly errors and can't speed up your ball and take your chances your always gonna be rowing uphill and end up second best . They just did everything needed - go forward , no errors , long kicks and smother chase , defend your line and take your opportunities . We have a lot to learn , how many times are we gonna say we should have won ... Still naive and still lacking zip and penetration in the middle , and still an awfully slow passing game . It's a harsh lesson league isn't it ? On the plus side Walne and Acton outstanding , Lawton very good and only getting better , Elliot good return and Forber very bright and must start . Good effort but not enough at this standard unfortunately . That last try was a killer , definitely deserved a point , but not to be .

Try Gore or Gilmore from Widnes if desperate at halfback.

We tried Gore, no better than what we have really.

Best team won. We deserved a BP. So with a truly awful ref who gave us no 50/50 decisions and was inconsistent and 5 players out atleast we can say it was an improvement on the York game.

Yep, sums it up nicely, but more precisely its Hulme 'can't collect bombs' ? Thought Coyle did OK. Lupton kicking game not so bad.

We need some pace around the pack.

No BP, gutted!

Aye fair enough , great when you've come from Super League !! Their kicking game though was the best I've seen here for a long time .. Ben Black absolutely priceless behind a pack rumbling on . He got tackled in the 79 th minute !!! Nice highlight was Brett smashing big Rowe !!

Its fustrating for use fans, we know players dont go out to make mistakes, but simple things like a bomb goes up on last tackle towards the wing with approx 90 seconds left , why do we try to jump twenty feet high and knock on, when will we ever learn :(

The 3 tries Batley scored in the first half were through our very poor defence and some of the players should be embarrassed when they watch the video and see how bad their defence was. We got back in to the game at 12 - 18 and then a decision by the touch judge (who hadn't seen anything all the first half) said that Town had dragged a Batley player in to touch with the ref Stokes as near watching and instead of a scrum to Town it was a penalty to them and they scored.

Referees and TJ's do influence results and every up and under they put up there was at least 3 or 4 Batley players in front of the kicker who got within the 10 metres, maybe that's why young Hulme dropped one such high ball. Only 2 penalties for offside all the match and both went to Batley and only 1 forward pass against Town.

I thought we started too flat and looked lacking in energy until we were 6 - 18 down. Brett Carter is too brave for his own good at times and puts his body on the line time after time. We seemed to get the ball out to Elliott Miller more in this game than we have done to our wingers in all our previous games and Elliott looked a threat each time.
