Batley Bulldogs 12-13 Dewsbury Rams


Dewsbury Rams beat Batley Bulldogs 13-12 to end the 2017 Summer Bash at Bloomfield Road.

Sunday was Rams’ third win over Batley this season, after beating them in the league and Challenge Cup earlier on this year.

The Bulldogs had chances to level the scores, and even win the game, during the final quarter but missed several drop goals and a penalty.

Batley led 8-4 at the break but the first points of the game went to Dewsbury as James Glover kicked a penalty goal.

Former Ram Dom Brambani was sin-binned for tipping but there was no damage on the scoreboard. Brambani returned to help the first Bulldogs try as Danny Cowling crashed over the whitewash.

Batley’s indiscipline cost them their lead temporarily as Glover kicked a penalty on the half-hour. The Bulldogs’ second try of the game came five minutes before the break as Wayne Reittie powered over Dale Morton to score.

After the restart, Batley extended their lead through James Harrison. A third missed conversion from Cain Southernwood would prove costly as Dewsbury hit back with nine straight points.

Aaron Brown made a break on halfway and crossed the whitewash despite the attentions of Shaun Ainscough and Dave Scott. Glover converted and he levelled matters on 54 minutes with another goal.

Dewsbury’s Dom Speakman attempted a drop goal but fired wide, however moments later Paul Sykes slotted over the winning point.

Brambani had a chance to put the Bulldogs ahead but his 40m penalty goal went wide while a drop goal attempt was also off the mark.
