I can see us losing this one, the logistics of getting the team up there on a Monday night is going to make it a real struggle. I think on a normal Sunday game it would be a really tough game as expected but think we would manage a close win but a Monday night,meh.

Barring Fev on the last day this is probably our toughest remaining fixture in the race for 3rd or at least to the point of looking at the fixtures and thinking no home advantage and the Monday night thing. 10 wins from 12 should be enough for 3rd place as long as one of those wins is over York but obviously York and Batley will have a huge say but both have to play Leigh and Fev each again.

dont forget you still have 2 games against your nearest  and dearest to come.😉

I think it would be quite a shock if we lost either to be honest. Bradford won't want to be playing us on nice wide pitches. I think Batley, York, and Sheffield away will prove to be a lot tougher test in reality.

Ah the old Bradford cant play on a normal or wide pitch argument 😂

 

The only away games we have lost all season have been at Fev and Leigh.   Not bad id say.  Wide pitches arent the issue.  Its playing at home thats been our problem.  Believe me, playing at home is far from an advantage for us.

 

I look forward to causing a shock or 2 😉

Oh I should have made myself clear, I don't think we will win purley just because of the wider pitches we play on, more just because we are the better side. 😉 Id pray for rain those 2 days if I were you. 🤣

No that wasnt clear. You stated   bradford couldnt play on a wide pitch,   i dispelled that comment with facts rather than opinions.   Now you  bring the weather in to it? 

Are u able to clarify what impact rain should have on the outcome of a game of rugby between the Panthers and the Bulls?

Im not sure where to start. 🤣 

"You stated Bradford couldn't play on a wide pitch"  Yeah that's not quite what I said is it?

As for the weather, rain tends the make the ball a little bit more slippy than it is normally which means there is added concerns about ball security which in turn tends to slow the game down a little and means teams can not play the type of rugby they may want to play if it were say a cloudy day or a mildly warm day. There is also the factor of how it is harder for both the defenders and the attackers to regain their feet at the play the ball which again tends to slow the game down and can help advantage bigger teams and any difference in fitness levels can be reduced in these type of conditions.

 

So basically what I am trying to say is that Bradford are fat, slow, overweight, out of shape, lack fitness, lack Rugby League finess, and that is the reason I think Fax might get the better of them if the weather is dry. 😉
