Batley silenced their critics in style in Wakefield today as they ripped Sheffield Eagles apart. After last weeks poor performance against Featherstone Rovers, Matt Diskin changed the team around again, and this it paid dividends as the Bulldogs tore into a dismal Eagles side. Batley ran in 10 tries in all, Day, Holmes and Reittie each getting a brace in an impressive victory against a team that used to be unbeatable for the Bulldogs.
Batley eased off in the last 10 minutes or so to let the Egles in again, but there is no doubting the quality of their performance this afternoon. And if this is a sign of things to come, then the future still looks bright
