I think we'll win but we'll finish 5th regardless now.

I agree, but think it's important that we do win our last two games as we do need some momentum for the play offs.

Very tough game this, and as well as we've been playing in the last three games I fear another (close) defeat is on the cards. However, we were absolutely awful in the Northern Rail semis against them and were still in with a decent shout until the last quarter of that match, so if we improve on that we might stand a real chance.

I think that they are probably the form team in our division at the moment and confident (of course!) A tough one but winnable.

if the lads were as sick as i was on the way home sunday then i reckon were in for one cracking game thursday, if we play as good as fax game then am sure we will win,36-22. could do with baz back for kh as hes gone back a year and drops too much ball of late, i cant wait as its going to be the make or break as to just how we bounce back from a bad last 10 minutes at fax. forget the ref and let the ball flow when needed and its ours all day long.COME ON THE DOGS. :bb:

I have watched your team twice against us this season and for me I was biting my fingernails in both games until the last quarter.

 

A team with a big mobile pack and fast wingers always has potential to win  any game.

 

Could go either way imo.

On Thursday Batley should continue to move the ball and play attacking Rugby League Football. I am assuming Leek will return along with Fleming, Bretherton and Campbell. Be interesting to see what John Kear does about the halfback situation. Hemmingway is not a Hooker so one out of Black, Moore and Hemmingway will have to be dropped going into the Play offs.

Leigh will be up for it as they could finish 3rd still, whereas they only need 1 point to stop us getting 4th, so they have more to gain or lose from this game than we have so expect it to be tough.Now that we are to a great extent 'back in the saddle' despite Sunday's slip, can't see much in it either way. The result might not be as important for us as the performance, to keep the lads buzzing for York and the play-offs. Seems a weird set-up this time though,how come we play the 8th place instead of the 4th, and who would we play if we win?

From a reliable source, tonights alleged team is

Greenwood

Campbell

Faal

Walton

Johnson

Black

Moore

Rowe

Mennell

Mullaly

Bretherton

Davies

Lindsay

Bench

Hemingway

Fairbank

Josh Johnson

Hirst

If true, dissapointed to not see Leek in the side again, and feel we will have little to no speed around the play of the ball without him and George.

Could be a long night if their forwards get on top early and Ridyard kicks us to death as usual.

We are winning 12-6 at HT I see, not enough with Batley playing downhill 2nd half.

 Frank, you can get updates from every bulldogs game via twitter.  You don't need an account just google "batleyrlfc twitter".  I suppose you can get it in NZ.
