Well well well, who would have thought it. Being in our hands whether or not our little puppy friends drop deep down into the underworld of Championship 1.Seem to remember someone pre season offering a wager that we would finish below them.Trouble is what do we do.Go all out and get satisfaction of removing a thorn from our side.Our do we give them a life line and play another derby match and earn a bit more cash from them.Depends i suppose what the instructions are from above.

Thumbs down for me

we once had a chance to relegate them in a play-off game at widnes .

the taunts that day of how rubbish we was

were deafening...

i truely hope no favours are done on Sunday

and we do play to win...giving them not even a bonus point...as dewsbury fans weve had new holes ripped when we have failed..

why on earth should we spare them the feeling of relegation... did they and would they spare us ??

i think not...

and as for money

we play them 3 times a season

we can still play them twice by introducing

the boxing day & new years day clashes

off with their heads i say !!!!

cos mine will be come 4.45pm next sunday if we win

with laughter :)

Are we all standing together Sunday instead of all over shop like usual at the mount? let's all get behind posts we attack at give the lads some good vocal support and the batley fans some banter ;-)

How many points are batley likely to get deducted because I've heard it's 6 points? If that's the case and we beat them Sunday not allowing a bonus point and haven picking up a point at seagulls this would relegate batley on Sunday

I thought we played really well that day. Was a great game that neither side deserved to lose!

How can anyone reasonably guess?

 

 

D1:25 The Operational Rules Tribunal and Operational Rules Appeals Tribunal shall have the power to order any Person subject to the Operational Rules to pay compensation and/or shall have power to reprimand, fine and/or suspend or expel from participation in the Game any Person Subject to the Operational Rules or any Representative or his/her Deputy or Member if found guilty of misconduct or aiding or abetting another so to do. In addition in the case of Misconduct which impinges on the integrity of the competition the Operational Rules Tribunal shall have the right to deduct competition points. The Operational Rules Tribunal and Operational Rules Appeals Tribunal shall be free to disregard any scales of mandatory fines published by the Board as guidance. Suspensions imposed by the Operational Rules Tribunal and Operational Rules Appeals Tribunal shall take effect from midnight on the day of the hearing unless the Operational Rules Tribunal or Operational Rules Appeals Tribunal orders to the contrary.

 

 

It is also potentially subject to appeal, so could string out for a while.

Will be a tough game for us I think. We rarely play well on the slope up at Mount 'Pleasant'.

 

Batley are struggling with their squad, but we are also and it will be a close game.

 

If we don't have a kicking game tactic we will have little chance of winning. This is how Batley won so many games there when Harrison was in charge. They could play the slope very well, and we never do.

defining moment for me

how he looked and took no pleasure in the victory .

sentiment shouldnt come into it

2 gladiators dont start patting each other on the back....its to the death ;)

There is no doubt that we will go into sundays game with the intention of obtaining the best possible result for dewsburys league position , dont forget there is a financial incentive for us in this last few games . Having said that our task is made all the more difficult by our desperate injury situation . For my money it could go either way .

A number of our fans took the mickey out of you when you were relegated a couple of years ago, whether in banter form or not, so I'm fully acceptant and expectant of the same in return should that happen.

It's swings and roundabouts with the HW, a few good years for us and then the same for the Rams. And your resurgence over the past 18 is a credit to your club, both on and off the field. Sadly we've had 3/4 years of success and not built on it in the same way. Yes the Rams have better income from various sources but at the same time our slightly better performances on the field should have nulified that. Unfortunately we've stood still and rested on out laurels. In any business it shouldn't take disaster and failure (relegation) to bring out about action. In our case it appears that we've left it to that.

I just hope we play with pride on Sunday and if we go down, we do it fighting and not in a damp squib, which I fear after recent weeks.

Either way, well done on your successes this year. You lot deserve it after sticking with your team through some lean years, as much as it pains me to say it as a Batley fan.

Let's see what Sunday brings. Rams are deserved favourites but hopefully we can find some of that Batley spirit from somewhere.

I'm not sure trying to predict this one. We are no where near top form and have 11 players out injured. Batley have to win so I'm going for a draw 18-18.

upmost respect to you and yours nick

Its all in fun the banter...hurts like a thatcher when your down and getting a kicking

and nobody wishes batley wiped from the rugby league map...even me.. suffer yeah ill take pleasure in that...but gone no never..

hopefully youll feel the pain we did and your team will bounce back and if your in the championship 1 hopefully some kind of tie up could be done on some level between the clubs

to get our supporters to watch your games..and you ours..

we dont want you gone forever

cos RL wouldnt be the same without you lot.

Did you use foul language or say something libellous or personal, Eddie? If not, I'd be interested to know why they've removed your posting privileges.
