Fev Batley Leigh  (hopefully by less than 30) Fax Broncos  (not sure exactly why but fancy a win to pull clear) Widnes and Barrow to make it a 3 point gap to Bulls.

Only potential shock here is Workington could beat Widnes. London blew their chance last week, and I don't see them getting anything from the Sheffield game.

When do you envisage Batley taking the drop goal?

Half time hooters gone and it’s 66-0 , just making sure and sending them 13 scores clear

Yes, I agree. I always feel better at half time with a better than 12+ try lead.

Tommy Martyn kicked one for us at PO rd ( playing up the hill ) back in 2004 at half time to make it 47-0 😂

The most complete half of rugby I’ve ever seen. Think it was quoted at the time there was something daft like a 95% completion rate. The other 5% ended in tries.

Dont think Leigh will get it all their own way at postage stamp Odslum. If Bradford get +30 I'll be backing them.

 

I fancy Broncos to upset Sheffield too.

Hate Bradford away always fear the worst on that tiny pitch you know it’s always going to be a slog. I’ll be happy with any win.

Well teams struggle to score against Leigh on a full size pitch, logic says if you narrow it down there is less space to defend so all the harder for the Bulls to score, and they won't be able to contain a bigger fitter more energetic and organised Leigh side, have faith it will be one of the easier away fixtures.......  he says!
