Crowd favourites Sam Smeaton and Michael Ward are the latest Bulldogs to put pen to paper for the 2019 season.

Strong running centre Smeaton joined the club towards the end of the 2016 Season and has since made 48 appearances.
Prop Forward Ward is in his first campaign at the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium. His powerful no nonsense style quickly made him hugely popular among the Batley supporters and he currently has 5 tries from 23 outings.
