The Keighley Cougars were no match for their opposition from Mount pleasant this afternoon, and the Batley Bulldogs ran in 7 tries as they beat their opponents comfortably by 38-12.
Tries by Hayward, Bretherton, Hallett and Davey in the first half playing up the hill put paid to any chance the Cougars may have thought they had, and in the second half Brown, Manning and Chandler all scored to mark a comprehensive victory for the Bulldogs, who, after this game still really won’t know where they stand.
Batley go into the final friendly against Castleford next week undefeated and in fine mental form. This game however will be a much more stern test than the opening two, before The Bulldogs start their campaign in the championships in the beautiful french city of Toulouse on the first weekend in February.
