Both sides are in the final on merit, espescially Batley winning away at Leigh & Fev.

Imagine the RFL won't be happy from a 'revenue' point of view, at Halifax in the NRC final, Eagles took a few hundred fans - imagine how many will trek over to Lancashire. Crusaders took more fans for the 'plate final' then what Sheffield took. Imagine there will be more fans for the 'champ one' Oldham v Rochdale game, than the main event....as Metallica one sang "Sad But True". At a push there maybe a combined total of 1000 Batley/Sheffield fans,

So what?

I've posted this before, but here goes again - we sold just under 2500 tickets for the 2010 NR Final. Woodwork fans maybe, but I'd suggest they'll all be there again for what is a bigger game.

After the match John Kear said they had been rehearsing drop goal plays all week, with Flanagan as a 3rd option because Fev would be closing down on Black and Moore. We only had Finn, who wasn't given space and rushed his kicks. He should have been taking the single point earlier in the game, however,to turn the extra two points from the penalty into three, but it's always wise after the event. Full credit to the Bulldogs for a magnificient fightback!

So the Fevalution grinds to a shuddering halt yet again. How absolutely hilarious.

Well done Batley.

Batley deserved the win today but the Fevalution won't stop we are still a top championship side and going in the right direction and it will continue with the people we have in charge

absolute rubbish and i'm a neutral,They absolutely dominated you in the second half as you dominated them in the first. They upped the ante in the second half and fev simply could not stay with them....your post is laughable.

Second half we were out muscled in the forwards, outplayed in the half backs and nullified in the threequartgers. Our kicking game was poor and we seemed incapable of catching a high ball that gave Batley field position. Our attempts at drop goals were pathetic. We were totally lacking in ideas in the second half and resorted to 5 trundles and a kick which they took every time. Yes the ref did make mistakes but not as many as us. Well done Batley and good look in the final. Any chance of us recruiting John Kear?

Was thinking exactly the same! Will be the smallest ever crowd for the Championships finals day!

It highlights how well both teams have done in reaching the final. Since promotion to the Super League was scrapped the attendances for Grand Finals have been poor including the finals involving Featherstone. Batley getting to the Final is good for the game.

You'll take more fans than Sheffield (not difficult), but just spoke to Ralph Rimmer, he's in tears......bless ! :tongue:

They were never in it Griff until the second half when the penalties started to flow. Complete and utter bull, a more one sided refereeing performance I have not seen all season.

Oh come on get a grip. Watch the DVD back and you watch JUST your team and imagine they are ANOTHER team you will see loads of horrible things going on in the tackles,3rd man flopping, 3rd man tackling around thighs, illegal. As I say gerra grip. Accept you lost but have WON the proper trophy, ie The League. Well Done.

Well done to Batley. Also well done to the Eagles, enjoy your day in the Sun, at least the bogs won't catch fire.. Two things happened to me this year that puts a game if Rugby League into perspective, Fev will survive to both disappoint and amaze us all again. It has been a terrible season off of the field and I for one think thst Rovers have done well considering the turmoil.

Oh aye and well done Gareth Moore, people haven't mentioned the two amazing touchline conversions from either side as well as the pressure pen at the death.

As for the ref he was ###### for both sides, the thing that concerned me was the amount of headshots and nasty tackles that were ongoing.

At least we won't lose in the p hissing down gloom of Halliwell Jones this year.

By the way someone (a batley fan) quite rightly mentioned how Batley can't defend dab throughs on the last tackle, I don't think we did one today.

I think you're right G. It's much like Man United are hated. It's funny how we had loads and loads of backslappers in April last year.
