Welcome to Batley Dale Morton!
We’re thrilled to announce vastly experienced hooker Shaun Lunt has joined Batley Bulldogs.

A Grand Final win with Leeds Rhinos, 3 Challenge Cup Final appearances and international honours, Shaun brings a huge amount of quality and knowledge to the club. Chief Executive Paul Harrison told us “This is a massive signing for the club. To have a player with this level of experience is invaluable and we’re excited to be welcoming Shaun to The Bulldogs.”
