aside The Qualifiers: Batley Bulldogs 15:00 Featherstone Rovers Preview

John Kear makes one change to his 19 man squad as the Batley Bulldogs aim for their first win in the Qualifiers this Sunday.


Hooker, James Davey, has been left out of the team as Luke Blake is recalled following a spell out with an injury.

Shaun Ainscough is still not available for the Bulldogs as he awaits a scan on his knee.

Featherstone, who are also winless in the middle 8s, recall Jamie Foster as Michael Channing is left out of the squad.

Kyle Briggs is also included despite picking up an injury during the loss to Leigh.

Both sides will be looking to taste victory in the Qualifiers for the first time. It is unlikely that either of these teams will challenge for a top 4 place however, many still anticipate a high quality West Yorkshire derby.
