If anyone was over confident it was Halifax, after last week they were confident of beating us in the semi final ( they must have forgotten about playing York).

Absolutely spot on.

They were giving it the big un after getting so close last week. Blaming the ref,  saying it would be different when u met them in the playoffs.  

Well that didnt work out so well for the Blue Sox and now youre playing Batley.  Its a funny old game.

3600 at Barrow today.

Tremendous atmosphere 

Ive got a lot of time for Barrow and everything they are doing up there. 

Had 3 trips up there over the last few years. Always a decent run out and lots going on. Good to see a club doing things the right way. 

I only wish my club could follow your lead.

So good to see loads of kids watching the game. It's been a long time since I have been up to Barrow, the ground has improved significantly and the atmosphere was tremendous. Most teams should take a look at what is going on up there and take note.

Nice ground but shame they had to take the roofs of the stands behind the sticks.

Great tactics from Fordy. Normally more of a percentage game plan he went all out attack and took fax by surprise with several men missing. Excellent effort.

A chance to redeem themselves after the 100-4 loss now. Be interesting to see how they approach that game.

We've been up twice this season for the weekend and really enjoyed it.

Absolutely. Fev are massive underdogs and must overturn the form book against Batley to reach the Final. Batley must think they're already in the Final having already smashed us at POR. 

Goodness Spud, no chance at home to Batley, and definitely no chance away to Leigh according to Fev fans, the player's should book their 'Mad Monday' day out for next week.

On my way back from the ‘Fax-York game just now*, a cracking tie where you were just stood there for a ‘Fax stampede that never arrived. Fair play to York, they were very productive with their possession and threw absolutely everything at it (to the extent that you’d expect them to be shot for next week), but ‘Fax seemed to be playing in second gear with one eye on next week and no idea how to get out of it.

Two surprise results all in all and these play offs seem to show a lot of momentum with visiting teams but it will take something special for either of them to come close to a win next week

*Yes, I live in Leigh yet managed to travel by Leigh. Jokers need not apply

Great win by York, not sure where that came from. I thought all the pressure today was on Halifax, and I again think all the pressure next week is on Leigh and Fev. Featherstone haven’t beaten Batley in the league yet and especially after the last meet-up at the LSV York won’t be expected to get anywhere near Leigh. Anything less than a 60 point defeat and York have probably done ok.

We don't fall for that one ABK, no complacency from this Leigh team, they play every minute as if it is the last one and they need a score to win or to stop the opposition scoring it's quite relentless really the intensity never drops.

I know let's have a vote by fans who THEY want in the finals. Leigh and Fev top two but not them, Leeds came 5th so that isn't right,Saints been last 4 years and neither is that. Come on then Jughead you come up with a plan.

He's a troll

Not Leigh, if I could pick. Been there, done that and they’ve been in Super League before. My personal preference in order was York, Barrow, Halifax/Batley/Fev, Leigh because York’s a great place, I can bribe the Mrs to go the Lakes and then Halifax, Batley and Fev have either not been in Super League or not been in years. 

Well unfortunately you won't get your ' pick ' , because you're a multi poster troll

I don’t doubt it for one moment. If York can be competitive I’d be happy but it’s just nice to pick up a first playoff win.

I'm afraid you won't be visiting York or Barrow, and I wouldn't back Fax or Batley with your money, watching this game I on TV I couldnt see either York or Fax winning 3 games on the trot so I will stick my neck out and say it is either Leigh or Fev.

Harry , he's a multi poster Troll , ignore in future

When will the Bulldogs stop being classed as a little underdog team and more of a competitor?

Since 2010 they've won the Norther Rail Cup, made play off four times, made semi finals twice, made a Grand Final and made it in to the Super 8's.

To be fair, I think they still enjoy the underdog tag as the pressure of winning is off during the big games. I'm not really sure why people thought Batley beating Barrow was such an upset. We had our strongest squad in weeks playing. Injuries haven't been kind to us more recently and we've had a big player rotation but now at the business end we have a squad that looks a bit more like the one earlier in the season.

I'm not saying we're going to go to Fev and turn them over. The laws of averages would say otherwise. How could a squad like Fev not pick a win up from us all season? 😏
