Batley (A)


Recommended Posts

Be interesting to see what team we put out. Presumably Kyle Trout will be playing and hopefully Harry Kidd will be back to bolster the pack. We won at Batley end of last season so who knows lightning could strike twice 😉

Unfortunately all I can see here is another tonking,hope I’m wrong. It would be nice to hear how long our injured players are going to be out for. Anyway I won’t be present as I’m going away for a few days.

Batley 38 Rams 10

I don't expect much from this game except a better, more coherent, performance. Batley have far too much quality in their side at present, something that we are sadly lacking.

I will be there, of course, but doubt that many more Rams fans will.

Batley 36 - 18 Rams

Att: fewer than were at Cornwall's first match.

I have a sneaky feeling this is going to be closer than a few of you Dewsbury fans anticipate. 

I have never taken HW games for granted and never will.

on paper we do seem to have an advantage but when has that ever guaranteed a win?

attitude will be the key (for both sides).

Will all depend on who is going downhill in the first half🤔

If its Dewsbury 

They have to score enough to defend second half

If its Batley 

They simply could be too far gone to catch them in the second half

If Batley playing up hill first half are in front

Game over 🤔

if your not fit enough(and batley are) peddling backwards  to get back onside and back in defence playing downhill is just as hard as playing uphill.this will catch teams out who cant play the slope.

Agreed, current form often seems to go by the wayside in these derby games.

In theory, Dewsbury ought to expect a good tonking on Friday, but I'll be happy with a Batley win from a drop goal in the 79th minute!

I think with this one form is going to count. We are playing some expansive exciting rugby this season and all players are firing on all cylinders. I'm still going for a comfortable dogs win.

What is expansive rugby? What does it look like? Can you buy it? Can we afford it?

Unfortunately form will triumph.

This! You Dewsbury lot have short memories - you turned us over at our place last season when we were on the up, and relatively comfortably too. Local derbies are never a foregone conclusion!

Oh and that’s another reason why we will not win on Friday. It’ll be Good Friday for one team.

If you are a Dewsbury season ticket holder do you get a discount at Batley. I thought there was some sort of agreement between the clubs?

Does anyone know?

Yes, in exchange for said Season ticket we will recompense you with its true value of half a pork pie...

Very good.

On second thoughts I don’t think I’ll bother. £20 or so saved buys a lot of pork pies.

If that's the case🤔

I'll take Batley with 12 start for a tenner🤔🤣🤣🤣🤣

It's a free hit for the Rams good friday

Going to lose, expected to lose, big defeat according to some predictions by the Batley faithful

 

What on earth could go wrong eh🤔

Buy one online and save a couple of quid: Dewsbury Rams | My Sports Tickets

That is enough for one decent pork pie.

If I remember correctly there were a handful of clubs that announced some sort of wheeze that you refer to some time ago. I think Dewsbury and Featherstone were two of them, Batley weren't. So you may be able to get into PO Road a bit cheaper with your Rams season ticket, but not Mount Pleasant. 

You can save a little on the admission price if you buy your ticket before midnight tonight, like I just did.

There was a reciprocal arrangement between the clubs that gave reduced price entry at the other's home games but excluding the derby games, naturally. I believe that the uptake was so low that it was simply allowed to fade away.

I thought you made a decent fist of it tonight, until the last 20 minutes. Blackmore was very good first half. You didn't look like relegation favourites on that performance!

A decent performance tonight, Batley played an excellent second half and made full advantage of Sykes' sin bin. We scored some decent tries. But without Annakin, Ferguson, Peltier and Walton we just lacked the forwards to match Batley.

 We have to beat Workington next week and fairly confident we will.

Not a bad guess BSJ.
