Play off final - Leigh v Batley : Sun Sep 25, 2022 5:16 pm  
Perhaps the identity of the finalists is not so big a surprise after all.

Anybody really think that a shock result is coming next week?

Narp, I would rather play Batley than Fev any day of the week. The Flat Cappers are always capable of springing a surprise, but Batley is an arm wrestle down the centre of the park which will assist Leigh.

Congratulations to Batley Bulldogs and can't wait for next week.

Great result from Batley and fully deserved. Can I see an upset next week,hopefully not.
How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

I honestly believed all week that Batley would win today. Once I saw the Fev 17 I was even more sure.
If we play our game, we win, again no doubt
BUT
Batley are a team of fighters with nothing to lose. They proved today that they can score tries. Don’t give them a sniff boys !

46-10 to Leyth.
First game was in 1967, and have been hooked since day 1. Now live in Vancouver, Canada but follow our team any way I can.

In his post match interview, Lingard admitted that he thought Batley could beat Featherstone in the effort areas. He was right. That Featherstone team have had an attitude problem ever since we beat them comfortably in two games in a short space of time, beginning with the 1895 cup.

They will not be able to beat Leigh with the effort areas, with physicality or with skill. We will win comfortably.

I'm not an arrogant person, but I can clearly see what is in front of me and we've worked hard all season in the effort areas, that will not change for the final. Batley will give us a game for 20-30 mins but we will run out comfortable winners again.

Hard to argue with any of that, hope this and other comments are not pinned on the Batley dressing room wall - although they would likely agree with them :lol:

Batley already have all the motivation they need. Motivation and effort won't let them down, but both will at least be matched by Leigh and we've got massive advantages in experience, physicality and skill.

I've never seen any signs from this team that they believe the hype. They know they win through effort in all areas of the game, we have a very honest and hard working set of players.

We collect our crown next weekend, barring one of the biggest upsets of all time.

Very dignified reaction on the Fev forum on TRL for which Bongser commended them and said that he'd rather face Batley than Fev in the winner takes all game. Didn't post that we'd win, but it is expected and Batley play hard but fair - Big Mac's dirty tricks will not come into play and, now that his legendary status as prime play off planner has finally been exposed as baloney, maybe he'll find himself back with his old chum in the far South West of England next season!

Very poor performance from Fev given the money on the park. No hills at the LSV.

Great display by Batley.Fev seemed to have forgotten the previous games against Batley until it was to late
