Championship side extend former Super League star and World Cup international as they aim to replicate play-off run

Batley Bulldogs have announced the re-signing of two key players that took them all the way to the Million Pound Game last year.

The Bulldogs have extended hooker Luke Blake who was brilliant for the side last season as they shocked the league with their run to the play-off final for promotion.

The club have announced the extension via their twitter page.

Sadly they fell short to a powerhouse Leigh Centurions side but the re-signing of Blake shows intent for this upcoming season where they will aim to replicate that.

Aiding Blake in pushing for the play-offs again will be Jamaican international Greg Johnson who signed for the club last season and will now extend his stay at the club for a further year.

Johnson has been capped six times by Jamaica including at the recent World Cup where he played all three games for the Reggae Warriors.

Formerly of Super League sides Huddersfield Giants, Wakefield Trinity he was most well known for his spell with Salford Red Devils for whom he scored 50 tires in 106 appearances.

Batley will look set to compete in what is working out to be an incredibly stacked Championship in terms of individual player talent.
