But if 1 team plays and another doesn't it increases the chance of losing therefore lowering the %. That's why playing the game is unfair on those who do.

Bulls haven't had a game called off due to Covid-19 that was the Bulls choice. Toulouse away and Sheffield at home only games called off. We are trying to re-arrange the Sheffield game but they don't seem interested. I reckon it's likely Bulls V Batley in playoffs, JK said he would likely rest players not 100% after the Swinton game with playoffs in mind so probably a few defeats for us.

I disagree. It depends who the opponents are. Would you have been happy if yesterday's game was called off? And if 1 team plays and another doesn't, doesn't the team that plays also have an increased chance of winning and therefore increasing their %. The only issue is if a club behaves unethically and chooses which games they suddenly have a covid outbreak for. And of course, none of us would suggest that.

That's fine when teams have big squads of Championship standard players as Bradford have. I doubt that Bradford would be relying on a player that had not pulled a shirt on for 2 seasons as Batley did against Fev..

The more games we play the more we're penalised. Bulls can call off games or have them postponed by the RFL and keep their % up. It stinks. For the sake of saving 9 points against we could have called Fev off and still been in the same position. That's why I doubt we'll catch Bulls or Fax....could be wrong.

But think of all the money that you would have lost.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

Many a true word etc.

The finances provided by the Fev game would have been very welcome by KN, after all, we have had to pay out a lot of winning pay so far this season.

Yes Batley weathered the pressure from Swinton the first half and then scored at key points at the end of the first half and then immediately at the start of the second half that killed Swinton off. I think Gilmoor and your #9 ran the game for Batley.

I agree with sentoffagain2's comment as I also look forward to going to Batley.

Good luck and hope you get in the play offs

I have to say Cox looks a decent centre, I wonder what he's doing in 2022?

Bulls have 29 players in first time squad this year but 5 of these are from the Academy and not ready for Championship RL. So 24 first teamseason players 2 long-term injuries and 2 players have not played this season due to injuries, we have competed with 20 players for most of year.

I remember saying that about Macaulay Hallett when he played for Swinton a couple of years back...😶

Anyone know if there's any highlights of Swinton match anywhere.

Highlights at the moment  I believe, are difficult to sort( not bissa's area) All being well BISSA should have copies of the full game available at the BISSA stall on Sunday. 

They are £5, with ALL funds going into the BISSA fund that has helped sign the FAB 4.
