Leigh expects.

There was something about our away win at Batley which I think felt like turning point where the casual fans, opposition fans, pundits and the usual pessimist Leigh fans finally felt this was a special team, so it is fitting it should come down to trying to turn them over for a third time this season.

Should be a good one.

Batley are a good honest team, with a hard working pack and a decent spine. When facing Leigh they meet force with a greater force and for this reason alone Leigh should come out on top.

The game at Mount Unpleasant was a real turning point. Premier Sport turned up expecting a ding dong do. What they got was a tour de force, with Leigh scoring down the hill and up the hill. The pitch will also neutralise Batley, who like going to Post Office Road and using their pitch to Batley's advantage.

Halftime.
Batley doing exactly what I expected but we haven’t kicked in like I thought we would after 20.
Second half should be ours though. We have this !
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.

I must admit for the first 15mins I was nervous.Once we scored I think everyone seemed to settle down. Fair play to Batley though, they gave it a good go. Good away following for them too. Massive well done to all the squad, coaches and of course Derek for his huge investment. One very happy Leyther in NZ.

Likewise in Vancouver.
What a season and what a team.
Derek built a great backbone and left them all to do their jobs and supported them all the way.
I am so happy for our whole club and fans.

Half the job done.

Full credit yet again to Batley who more than matched us up the middle and never stopped for the rest of the match but it was always going to be the case that full time vs part time was going to win and heart can only get you so far, the quick scores at the start of the second half ripped that heart out.

I like that the Batley try was announced in the stadium before the video ref had made his decision.

Now to build a squad that can stay up before IMG start with their shenanigans.

Just landed back at Bongser Towers (helipad not too slippery). Yes Leigh studiously walked round the two end of season banana skins and are back in SL, but there should be a big call-out tonight to Batley. Their team turned up big style and their fans did too. The former for a game (which they gave us despite the wide margin), the latter for a party! Bongser was sitting in the South West and, oh, are they a noisy bunch! Supported their town, applauded good Leigh tries and many were in The Wren afterwards (why was Legends closed?) and were pressing palms and wishing Leigh well next season.

....and good luck right back at them in these uncertain times. :thumb:
