  1. It strikes me that in most games two such fantastic tries from Campbell would have made him a shoe in for MOM. That so many other players caught the eye shows what a good all round display it was.
  2. Hooley White Tonks (for his first half display)
  3. Yes Phil, according to the Batley News Everett received a knock to the jaw last Saturday which required an x ray to assess the damage.
  4. Sorry Frank, I don't remember the Buff. The Green was published by the Yorkshire Post I think and the the Pink by the Telegraph and Argos. Perhaps someone else on here can recall the buff?
  5. Cheers Roger. This forum tends to be my first port of call thanks to Bob, and yourself and others who share very informative stuff on here.
  6. Batley Bob, you do an absolutely sterling job in keeping us all informed....thank you.
  7. Gone are they days when you watched the match, had tea and then rushed out to pick up the pink and the green sports papers.
  8. Hooley Gilmore Manning I was also very impressed with the starting props.
  9. No Ward and no Walshaw? Or will we see changes to the squad before Saturday?
  10. I think that we have lost a couple of "form" players in Morton and Kaye. Good to see Brown, Manu and Gledhill back, mind.
  11. I got as far as Danny Yates still playing for Batley and decided that the rest probably wasn't worth reading.
  12. Bate ly sounds very posh POR, are you sure that you are from Fev? Fev are a class act and ruthlessly revealed our weaknesses but I think that we are a work in progress and I was delighted that we ran you so close. If's and but's but enthusiasm nearly won the day, lack of experience lost it.
  13. I would be interested to know what skill or characteristics Craig values the most in a full back? I ask having seen full backs with very different styles over the years.
  14. The hardest thing for newcomers might be working out why certain players are called hookers. You make some good points, by the way.
  15. With a certain Mr Eddie Waring in charge I believe
  16. Thanks KTF, I've just had a look at said site and the picture has beaten me to it!
  17. I cannot remember the game or the location but assumed that it was the Mount or Crown Flatt. I am thinking that at least seven of the above played for Batley at some time.
  18. I found this team sheet in the loft. I don't remember the game but some famous names on display. I thought that some of the old timers might enjoy seeing it.
  19. As long as there's not a Dewsbury just around the bay.
  20. I seem to remember that he was signed as a prop/loose forward. Nevertheless I have sympathy with the view that prop would be his natural position, especially on a fast summer pitch.
  21. Phil, I read today that we have just recorded the highest daily figure for new infections in the UK and so I guess that the new strain of coronavirus combined with Christmas is indeed sending the figures "shooting through the roof again". I guess it's a question of how quickly vaccinations can be administered and also whether they reduce the spread of the disease or merely alleviate the symptoms.
