The Batley Bulldogs are still looking for the first points of the Super 8 Qualifiers campaign after they went down to the Huddersfield Giants in the first match at Mount Pleasant 58-28.
At half time it looked as though the Batley bulldogs were in for another hammering as Huddersfield took full advantage of the slope to build a 48 – 2 lead. However the Bulldogs showed character and strength in the second half to hit back at the Giants. Second half tries from Squires and Scott, who both got a brace, and Ulugia made the scoreline more respectable.
