Bulldogs get into Parliament

Batley Bulldogs have joined the Parliamentary Rugby League Group, ensuring that all levels of the professional game, as well as the community game, are now represented.

Made up of around 70 Members from both Houses of Parliament and all parties, as well as club, organisational and individual Associate Members, the Parliamentary Rugby League Group works to support the sport of rugby league football, and ensure the sport is represented throughout Westminster and Whitehall.

The Championship club joins Wigan Warriors and Bradford Bulls from Super League, and Oxford RL from Championship One. The community game is represented by Brentwood Eels.

Wugan Warriors and Bradford Bulls are Super League‘s representatives, while Oxford RL stand for Championship One. Brentwood Eels represent the community game.

“We’re delighted that Batley Bulldogs have joined the Parliamentary Rugby League Group,” said Group’s Chairman, Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland.

“The Group is open to any member of the rugby league community and to now have clubs from the community game to the Super League is terrific. They are most welcome and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
Any individual, club or organisation who shares the Group’s goal ‘to support rugby league football’ is able to join the Group as an Associate Member. They may then attend and speak in Group meetings and events at Parliament.
“We are very pleased to have joined the Parliamentary Rugby League Group,” added Batley chairman Kevin Nicholas.

“Over their 25 years, they’ve done some outstanding work to support the game and we look forward to playing our part in the future.”
