Any player wearing a Batley Bull Dogs shirt could do Rovers a lot of damage if we let them. Thats why we have to be fully focussed to get into the Grand Final.

Moore's kicking and all round game were excellent against Leigh, but the weather really helped the kicking. Of course depends what team he puts out. John Davies has been outstanding in the past few matches so if you are looking for an individual it might be him.

Don't think the danger comes from batley as much as it comes from are own team ie some soft tries given away this season at least we have a plan B now,saying that I think lads will be well up for it and win by at least 10

Agree on that point,paff. We must keep our aggression levels up in the tackles, play in their faces and do not ease off when achieving a winning platform.

We have the lads that can do this one.

Then there's always Andy Kain; his passes out wide can be devastating to either side. Not been giving too many interceptions away just lately though!

Johnson, lightning fast, don't know if he plays tomorrow. Ben Black was once a thorn in our side, llittle magician but his powers are on the wain slightly. Jason Walton strong running centre come second row, had he have made the correct choice and passed to his wingman at Mt.Pleasant the result could have been different. Flannagan good schemer at hooker and Moore also talented half back, had he have made a different choice instead if kicking at ours in July the result could have been different and he also worries about his hair been displaced. Byron Smith good prop. Walmsley jnr good back row and of course Lyndsay also always has a good game v Rovers. As you say OR Maun always has a good game agin us but I think he missed at least one if not both meetings v us in the league this year.

If Batley win it will be tight, if Rovers win it could be by a 15-20 margin this time.

The thing that Batley have lacked in the last three years against Rovers ( save for the win in the NRC in 2012) is that killler touch in the last 10-15 mins, something that Sheffield and Halifax have had in recent years.

Alex (Chris) Rowe, he is  a light under a bush, be very aware, he wants to meet us in the Final, all his old mates will be there and he would love the after match urine up!!!!!!

Had the late great Bill Shankly been the coach for Rovers today and OR would have asked the same question Shanks would have said;

They've got no danger men, but ours are ; Hardman, Sharp, Hepworth, Worthington, Saxton, Kain, Finn, Crossley, Kaye, James, Dale, Bussey, Bostock, Mellars, Bryan etc.

Forgot Locky

Under direct instructions from the RFL no doubt. It's a well known fact that Fev aren't welcome at the top table.

Why was the referee bent?!! He gave a skinny ten to both sides. Most Fev fans around me had the class to admit they'd been outfought and outthought today. Bit of a shame some people are trying to detract from an amazing and deserved win for us with childish bleating about the officials. Very poor.

Agree LMAO, but if any Fev fans care to look at the DVD and count the number of cheap 3rd man in flops. plus 3rd man in tacklin around the thighs/legs, now illegal, you will actually see the referee let you get away with loads, yes he missed loads from your view(agree), but please accept he missed  loads from our view, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt. I admire Fev and wish you all the luck in your quest, but please let us have our moment of glory, and accept defeat graciously and stop looking for excuses.

Is this real ?

 

Every time the ball popped out for us it was a knock on, everytime for Rovers it was a steal.

 

Dozens of third men flops from Rovers, none of which went punished, and the linesman missed an absolute howler when Sharp knocked the ball a yard forward when challenging one of our attacking kicks.

 

Barlow's torpedo like dive into Greenwoods kidneys amongst his other egregious antices . . . .

 

Lets be fair about this and good luck.

Have to say I was delighted when Barlow was on the field for extra time as he was doing no damage with ball in hand but was always likely to concede a penalty.
