We need to remember that also.
But I think we have the set-up to make sure that doesn’t happen.
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.

Well that’s certainly turned the pressure up on Fev. Well done Batley. They will be over moon and nearly as happy as me !

Advantage Leythers

Good initial call VL 8) .

Just looking at the format for the play-offs on page 12 and 13 of the RFL Operational Rules.
My understanding is, if Fev come 3rd they would play whoever comes 4th at home in the first week of the play-offs. The loser being eliminated. If Leigh finish first they get a bye in week one and in week 2 play the winner of 3rd v 4th at home with the winner going to the Grand Final. The home team for the Grand Final is the higher ranking team from the regular season. So if leigh finish top and reach the Grand Final they will be at home.

Sorry my post above is incorrect. If Fev come 3rd they would play whoever comes 6th at home in the first week of the play-offs. The loser being eliminated. If Leigh finish first they get a bye in week one and in week 2 play the winner of 3rd v 6th at home with the winner going to the Grand Final. The home team for the Grand Final is the higher ranking team from the regular season. So if leigh finish top and reach the Grand Final they will be at home.

This is the link to the if anyone can make sense of it!

I’ve had a feeling all week that Fev may be pushed very close by Batley tomorrow (your today). I look forward to checking the scores when I wake up. Fev are feeling the pressure and are a team with some players carrying injuries of one level or another.…..,,


Well done VL for daring to post what Bongser had been wondering for the previous fortnight. This party was enjoying Leigh’s longest spell in top spot this season and had sussed that a win at Sheffield would guarantee us another 8 nights of sweet dreams. However a subsequent and dearly hoped for Batley victory at Fev would ensure that, regardless of the latter’s result hosting Newcastle or indeed Leigh’s result at Odsal (hopefully another triumph and one without the grandstand finish we had to endure in the Cup tie) The Cherry & Whites would still bestride The Championship pile on Bongser’s birthday.

One doesn’t wish for much at this age on yet another birthday (general good health for those nearest and dearest, a card or hug from ones daughters, a few beers and then to lie down at the end of it with La Jeunesse), but Batley have made it a promised-to-be special one.

Cheers Bulldogs. :thumb:

Bongser hopes L.I.S.A. doesn't organise coaches for those games - they are at LSV! :)
