It's amazing when we're watching as a neutral how we uncover the other eye and see both teams performances as well as the ref.

From a neutrals perspective he didn't appear to get too many wrong calls though I was at the other end when the touchie (who was bang in line) called the forrad pass.

The Batley outside four made it difficult for Leigh even coming up the hill and Ben Black was a bloody nuisance for Leigh all afternoon. Conversely, the Leigh forrads were never on top, oft got "out muscled" leading to a lethargic performance from the half backs.

I thought when you pulled it back to 26-20 you had Batley rocking. But again, poor ball retention near the Batley line cost you and the frustrations showed. Ill disciplined at times Leigh contributed to their own downfall today.

Play like that Thursday I will be happy.
Play rugby like I know Leigh can and it could be difficult.

Poor show today. Too many wrong calls at key times and a few players had one of those days although Beswick going off early put too much pressure on Ridy .

With Duffs, Mado, Goulden, Spencer and Nash hopefully back for Thursday I think we will be a stronger unit.

One bright spot was Thornley's performance - really strong.

All in all a bad day at the office but not the end of the world.

Well don Batley!

Its not the end of the world , i praised Mr Stokes in another post , but today i thought he gave the bullfrogs everything , plenty high tackles from them , Matt Gardner had a nightmare game , both in defence and attack , he dropped a decent ball which was a certain try , but our forwards were well beaten , their number 10 was a monster .

Still roll on Thursday i think it will be a different team them and PR will have them fired up ready for the game of their lives .

Ben Black had a good game , no doubt , and for a quarter of the game , especially in the first half he was injured , double up with back pain .

Best side won, no grumbles from me. We've got a pretty horrendous injury situation at the minute, not helped by Beswick going off early doors, but that's the risk we take when trying to run with a smaller squad. Game might have been a little different had Gardner not spilled the ball with the line begging at 26-20 but even then I think a bonus point would have been pretty unjust. We just weren't at the races, and credit to Batley for taking advantage of it.
