Million Pound Game - Can Batley Spring a Surprise





Everyone except the Batley squad and coaches and perhaps the most diehard/deluded of supporters expected that Sunday's game at the Millennium Stadium against Featherstone Rovers would be a game too far for the plucky part-timers from deep in heavy woollen country.

Their incredible win, leading from the first points of the game until the relieving final hooter, set up a trip to the Leigh Sports Village, to take on Leigh Centurions, in the Million Pound Game for the right to play their 2023 rugby in the Super League.

But the Bulldogs have no chance of winning, absolutely zero, not a prayer, a snow ball´s chance in hell. We take a look at the probablility Leigh will be the ones celebrating on Sunday evening.
