Broncos beat hapless Dogs


The Broncos from London turned on the style to beat an hapless Bulldogs team by 32 – 8.

It was a little more than just a bad day at the office. Batley were resoundly beaten by the Broncos, who have now moved in front of the Dogs in the table to second place. Batley remain third, but after another abject performance today in Ealing, it looks like we must look at more realistic goals for the rest of the season.

Batley do have some injuries, but other teams are in the same situation, and slowly we have to ask the question whether John Kear’s pending change to Wakefield is having an effect on the motivation of the team.
