Dewsbury 19 Batley 12

Batley came out second best in a scrappy match, where they failed to take advantage of tired opposition. Inexplicably they were unable to maintain the form that had earned them so much praise in the cup battle against Widnes.

The Bulldogs have now slipped down a further place in the table and will really have to rally together over the next few weeks to regain lost ground. Meanwhile some of the Fans are sharpening their knives and calling for the replacement of coach John Kear… The pre-season optimism with the claim #daretodream seems to have gone…
