Batley Bulldogs forward Joe Chandler will make his 150th career appearance if he features in tomorrow’s Challenge Cup tie against Catalans Dragons.

Chandler has played 63 games for Batley since 2014 and previously made 25 appearances for Keighley in 2013, five for Dewsbury in 2012, 27 during his spell with Halifax in 2011-2012 and 28 for Oldham in 2010 having begun his career at Leeds, where he played one game in 2008.
