Batley come out on top in tight game

Batley edged a close game with Whitehaven 24-23 at the Foxs Biscuits Stadium.

Whitehaven took a while to get going and were not really in it during the first half and headed into the interval 16-6 down.

Batley's tries came from Dave Scott, Adam Gledhill and two by Alex Brown while the rest of the points came courtesy of Pat Walker's boot, but the hosts were forced to fight off a spirited comeback as three consecutive tries put Whitehaven in front before Brown's crucial try.
