Kear delighted with dominant Bulldogs

Batley Bulldogs head coach John Kear was delighted with his side after their victory over previously unbeaten Sheffield.

The Bulldogs put in a dominant second-half display to comfortably claim victory, with Dom Brambani scoring twice.

Having already beaten Leigh this season, things look promising for the Bulldogs this year, and Kear admitted he was pleased with their most recent display.


“We controlled the game well. We played really well up the hill which gave us a foundation to build on, and then we were composed downhill.

“The 17 as a whole deserve a pat on the back. It was a monumental defensive performance and the effort was first-class.

“We said beforehand that no matter the scoreline we were going to play the game of Rugby League we feel it should be played and they carried that out to perfection.

“Going downhill it was about building pressure and the pivotal players did that really well.”

Two former Eagles players caused damage on the day, with Brambani and Pat Walker particularly impressive for their new club.

“I thought Brambani was very good and Walker was very influential. Cain Southernwood is blossoming working alongside them and it showed just how good they were today.”
