Seems like goalkicking making the difference so far. London 4 tries, 1 goal, Haven 3 tries, 4 goals.

Yea certainly is funny thing is we haven't got a reconised goal kicker on the field.

Batley looking like spoiling my acca. Looking like they will do well to get within 30 or 40 of Widnes.

What happens if the game is abandoned? Not sure they're going to make it to the 80 minutes given the current conditions.

I think the score and result stands if 60 mins are completed.

Seems like the cloudburst has been and gone. Artificial pitch helps.

26-12 after 63.

Widnes 32 Batley 12 FT

3577 Attendance, pretty decent considering the weather conditions.

Good effort by haven, though obviously that kind of weather helps with their Style of play.

Would have expected more had it been on a Sunday for the first game of the season, didn't see or hear many Eagles fans yesterday, let's see how we go next week with York on Sunday.

How is the York travelling support these days, anyone?

100 to 200............noisy buggers.😉

Might get more than that as many York fans will not have seen the team play yet (Toulouse away and a postponement) and might be getting restless.

So handicap wise....

Leigh -16 V Sheffield

Toulouse -34 V Oldham

London -32 V Whitehaven

Swinton -4 V Dewsbury

Widnes -20 V Batley

York -8 V Bradford

Fev -12 V Halifax

 

I said I would take Toulouse with anything up to -36 so Im still taking that. Nothing really stands out apart from maybe Batley at -20. I expect Widnes to win the game comfortably but not sure if its 20 points comfortably.

Bang on 20 points pfffttt.

Broncos were poor. Not that sure about the ref and some of his decisions but Broncos gave him no choice on occasions.  Haven were solid, workman like but not that spectacular. Probably played the conditions better. Fitness probably told in the end. Some work on building the knowledge of each other. Its early days, two out of two, cant ask for more.


Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

A struggling Broncos team against a Widnes team at home with a few wins under their belt could be the pick of the games this week in importance for the playoffs.

Would be a shot in the arm for Widnes if they can pull it off and a sign they have moved on from the difficultes of last year.
