Things are starting to click into place as the Bulldogs are starting to understand what coach Matt Diskin expects from them, as they beat Oldham Roughyeds today at the Foxes Biscuits Stadium with a sparkling display of Rugby League. Batley produced an excellent display going up the slope in the first half to lead 24-0 at half time
However at 30-0 up Batley should be looking to keep on the pressure to improve their points difference instead of relaxing and letting oldham back into the game.
Oldhams comeback was short lived though after the dogs turned the screw again after Joel Farrell went over just after the hour mark. Sam Smeaton followed it up with another try to put Batley on the 40 mark. Gledhill and Leak added to the score to make the half century for the Bulldogs.
