Star-man: Alastair Leak
A difficult choice but Batley’s chosen star player of this season is their hooker Alastair Leak.
Leak has arguably been Batley’s most consistent performer in 2017, having featured in 29 appearances this season, scoring up to 15 tries.
A high amount for a hooker but on top of that, it’s his general graft in games that has helped the Bulldogs throughout.
His work around the ruck has made Batley a consistent threat in such an area, working well with their bolstering forward pack.
Plus he has defended well all season, helping Batley to a top half finish as well as Championship Shield semi-final berth, just being edged out by the Sheffield Eagles.
A superb effort from the hooker and no doubt more to follow in 2018 as he and the Bulldogs aim to bounce back.
