Batley Bulldogs have announced the departures of three players today, just before their return to pre-season training.
Both Jack Downs and new signing Reece Dean have both had to withdraw from their squad because of new work commitments, which mean they cannot commit to the schedule.
Meanwhile, Danny Bravo has also walked away from the squad. He is still unsure about his recovery from injury, so he will not play for now.
In a short statement on their club website, the Bulldogs said: “We’d like to wish all three the very best of luck for the future, and in the case of Jack Downs & Danny Bravo thank them for their efforts with The Bulldogs.”
