Powerful Front Row man Keegan Hirst will return to Batley Bulldogs for the 2023 campaign.

A hugely popular figure at The Fox’s Biscuits Stadium, Keegan played a massive role in the incredible 2016 season, where The Bulldogs finished 3rd in the table and went on to compete in the Super League Middle 8 Qualifying series, before moving onto Super League Wakefield Trinity.

Keegan said of his return “I’m really excited to be coming back to The Mount. Batley has, and will always be, a special club to me and my family and I’m privileged to pull on the jersey again and help build on the success of this year.”
