So, we seem to be avoidinga discussion of this weekend's fixture - is it fear or boredom? Time was when I used to be very excited by the prospect of an impending local derby but nowadays I feel that we play each other far too often; Including the Christmas friendly it will be five matches again this season.

This is another very important game, at least for us, as we are desperately in need of the points whilst Batley are keen to get a result to end their own poor run of form. 

My heart says that we will win but my head is much less certain and tipsters on other forums are predicting a loss by 14 points.

I think/hope we'll Nick this one if for no other reason than to make you all a little more nervous of a trip to South Wales next season

And if we win it might be you who's getting nervous. I'm going for a win by 4 then next week if you can do a job on Swinton please.

I predict we'll score same number of tries but lose on goal kicks..Its a theme..

I also predict a pitiful crowd, also a theme, not helped by BSJs point about 5 head to head games a season...

If Fev miss the top 4, it will be interesting to see how it affects their squad for next season.

Aye, and your budget will be lower next season as well, remember.

You both could be right - hope I'm wrong.

Could go either way this game both sides in poor  form, any win form our point of view will do, a win will only put us a point behind batley, and will drag them into relegation trouble.

Not just the number of games Nick - how many actual Dewsbury or Batley lads will be in the mix - Sykes and Walshaw for the Rams (no Batley lads) Hemmingway might have been playing for the dogs but for injury (Brev and Patch from Dewsbury). In all likelihood, that will be three from the HWD on match  day - the edge has gone I'm afraid.

Apparently N k is not happy with the defence

Well i think best form of defence is to attack. let the ball do the work.

Especially in this heat this season.

We have blown up many a time because we not scoring the tries and then having to defend too much.

Having said that how many length of the field tries have we let in ,with interceptions?

I don't blame the players for lack of effort.

Relegation is almost certain this time i think.

just another game to be honest the derbys have gone stale. On a loss it would hurt till we played again .Now 5 games in a season too many matches to mean anything. If we play someone else at Blackpool it might bring the keenness  back.
