KEENEN TOMLINSON and Michael Ward have both committed to Batley Bulldogs for another year.
Tomlinson, 22, and Ward, 28, will both play on for a third season at the club after signing one-year deals.
Tomlinson, a Jamaican international, has proven a useful member of the squad for his versatility, having featured on the wing, at centre and in the second row.
He made 17 appearances in his first year at the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium after joining from Bradford ahead of the 2018 campaign and made a further 18 last term, scoring four tries in each season.
Ward is another Bulldog with international recognition having featured in the past for Ireland.
The forward has made 23 appearances this season – all from the interchange bench – after playing 27 times in 2018 following his switch from Oldham.
Ward, who has scored eight tries for the club, this year raised over £4,000 for the club’s Pink Weekend fundraiser with a sponsored head shave.
