Slow start costs Bulldogs dear

Dearne Valley Bulldogs played their 2nd game of the season away to Farnley Falcons in Leeds, but unfortunately went down to a 34-20 defeat.

The Bulldogs started very slowly going behind by 18 points before they got into the game. This was mainly down to poor ball control in their own half backed by some poor defending. The visitors always looked like they had points in them when they controlled the ball and managed 2 tries themselves before the half time break from Andy Thorpe and debutant Craig Benn, 1 of which was goaled by Thorpe. Making the score 22-10 at the interval. The second half was a much more balanced affair as the Bulldogs controlled the ball better than they had in the first 40 mins, crossing for 2 further tries. Luke Robinson scoring first which was goaled by Thorpe before adding his 2nd try.

Ultimately the poor start cost the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs men of the match were awarded to 1, Luke Robinson 2, Andy Thorpe 3, Craig Benn.
