Our attacking play.....

It seems to tire the lower teams OK but certainly is not as effective against the better teams as you would expect

The thing is though, winning is more important than anything else currently with the proposed shake-up. Our gates are poor and the best way of getting money in is through prize money. Open skilful rugby means you have to have the cash to buy the players capable of playing that type of rugby. We are struggling to hold the ball for a full set playing 1 out stuff, imagine how much more ball we would lose if we were throwing it about?

People are whining about the last 2 games, but how much rugby did Sheffield play? All they had was the kick and the barge over and a freak try from a ball steal. Hardly Nrl football is it. Leigh similarly. The conditions were dreadful on both nights.

Again with a couple of correct calls by the ref in both games probably would have seen a different result in both games. I'm not saying we are playing good football, but in the last 2 weeks we have had to play the conditions.

We have lost to 3 of the other teams around us and drawn one, but unlike all of them, we have put all of the teams below us to bed. Fev lost at York, Sheffield to Workington, Halifax to Dewsbury and Leigh got hammered against Halifax. Tbf nobody has looked like stuffing us, and if this is part of the longer term plan then so be it. It's alright saying I'd rather be entertained and lose every week, but long term can you see Rochdale and Oldham surviving? I can't. By doing what we are doing, we are better placed to be in sl2 if it comes off and the better funding it will bring. Therefore it has to be the right plan of action for the club, so come on, rather than moaning get behind the club. We are perpetual overachievers and better placed than every other club our size to progress in the future, yet some are still moaning.

A FINER POST I HAVE YET TO SEE.... TOO MANY WHINGERS ON HERE DOGFATHER! ... IF WE WIN TOMMORROW THEYLL ALL BE FULL OF PRAISE.... VERY FICKEL BEASTS MOST BATLEY FANS!

And what's so wrong with that? It's what being a supporter is all about. It's a rollercoaster not a walk in the park.

Henry, I'm very happy where we are at the moment. However, I'd be a lot happier if I thought we were using our hugely talented attacking players - such as Johnson, Campbell, Potts and Black, to the best of their abilities. We clearly haven't been doing that in recent weeks. Its really nothing to do with 'being happy' where we are in comparison to previous seasons of struggle.

I used to think that but actually we should aim.high. You get what you wish for. If those of influence in our club thought that then perhaps we would be fighting for our lives at the bottom of this division rather than being where we are.

agreed. however im just suprised at the current backlash.... with comments like "seasons over" etc... we have a fantastic team and as you say the people who influence the club have done fantastic ... so i think they deserve a bit more faith.... the tactics we employ have worked this year... im fed up of hearing all the wouldbe coaches on here. we should have beat fev and sheff at home Imo. would that have stopped the talk of using wingers more?!??!!!. .... we all leave the ground disappointed after a defeat... i think some of us go too faron here! :-)

That's the problem Henry if you accept mediocrity that's what you get

The facts are we can't trouble any of the top 4 points scored 50 in six

games against them speaks volumes for me.

Yes agree with Henry oulton,we have had a bit of a bad patch,which fev had earlier in season aswell so was that because their team is rubbish and there season was over,it's a marathon not a sprint,lets get behind the boys

Agreed were still 3rd and still not firing on all clynders yet when it clicks then lets c what happens . My self im fustrated that we have 3 of the quickest wingers that we have ever had but cant seem to get a center or hslf back to give them some proper service . When and if this happens we could win this league in my inho.

So, as Dewsbury are doing the same thing now does that not mean you should aspire to better things? I am not sure you would be happy if your thread regarding the future was essentially about maintaining the status quo.

I agree. In addition the left side of our attack don't see enough ball. It is very predictable to keep attacking on our right hand side even when we are out numbered. Be nice to see the Dogs move the ball around and keep our opponents guessing
