Report

Mount Pleasant was the scene of this years traditional boxing Day friendly between Batley and Dewsbury, giving both coaches the chance to give the new signings a run out.

The last meeting between the two sides at this venue took place on 17th August 2014 when Dewsbury ran in a 16-14 victory against rivals Batley. In fact Dewsbury won both Championship matches (also winning 43-10 at the Tetley’s Stadium in April) in what was a difficult season for the Bulldogs after having to incorporate a number of new faces onto the team due to a good number of the old faithfuls leaving the club.

This time however, it was the Bulldogs that narrowly took the accolades in a match that promises much for both teams in the 2015 season.
