Batley Bulldogs will begin the 2018 Kingstone Press Championship season with three consecutive away games.

Batley begin their campaign with a trip to Rochdale Hornets on Sunday February 4 and then face relegated Leigh Centurions before a third straight trip to Lancashire as they tackle Swinton Lions on February 18.

Batley’s first home game is against Barrow Raiders on Sunday February 25.

Bulldogs fans will be planning a historic trip to Canada as they face promoted Toronto Wolfpack but their venture abroad is not until Saturday July 14.

Batley face a home Good Friday derby against Dewsbury Rams (March 30), with their return trip to Tetley’s Stadium set for the penultimate weekend of the regular season (July 22).

The Heavy Woollen rivals will once again meet at this year’s Summer Bash in Blackpool with the sides bringing the curtain down on a full weekend of Championship games at the seaside resort on Sunday May 27 (kick off 5.30pm).

Batley end their regular season at home to Swinton on July 29 before the split for the Middle Eights and Championship Shield.
