MATCH REPORT: BULLS BASH HALIFAX BY THE SEASIDE

23 May 2015

ADRIAN Purtell bagged a stunning double as Bradford Bulls enjoyed victory by the seaside, brushing aside neighbouring Halifax in Summer Bash action at Bloomfield Road. 

The Australian three-quarter grabbed tries either side of the break, as James Lowes’ men battled tirelessly to seal a 12th-straight Kingstone Press Championship success.

The Bulls were made to work for the their latest triumph, however, and more than half an hour had passed before the game’s first points were registered.

But in the end class prevailed and Bradford produced an impressive performance in front of almost 3,000 travelling supporters.

CONROY JOINS DEWSBURY ON LOAN

21 May 2015

YOUNGSTER Nathan Conroy has joined Bradford Bulls’ Kingstone Press Championship neighbours Dewsbury Rams on loan.

The 20-year-old hooker will spend the next month at the Tetley’s Stadium but will not be able to face his parent club when James Lowes’ men host the Rams on Sunday June 14.

Head coach Lowes hopes Conroy, who is sponsored by Schofield Sweeney,  can gain much-needed game-time during his loan spell – which commences with immediate effect.

“Given the amount of competition for places we have here, Nathan’s opportunities are proving limited,” said Lowes, who is sponsored in memory of Joyce Dobby.

“I am not of a fan of changing a team around if players are playing well and Adam O’Brien is doing a very good job.

“But I am mindful of the fact that Nathan needs to be playing and maintaining match fitness for when opportunities present themselves.

“He is a great guy and a talented player, so I am sure he will go well with Dewsbury and I wish him well.”

Conroy could feature this weekend when the Rams take on Heavy Woollen rivals Batley Bulldogs at the Summer Bash.

Unreserved tickets for the Bulls’ Saturday battle with Halifax are on sale until 5.00pm TODAY!

SOAP STAR PRESTON LOVING 'BULLS BUZZ'

21 May 2015

EMMERDALE’S Duncan Preston is loving life as an 1863 Member, insisting there is “no better time” to be getting behind Bradford Bulls.

A long-standing supporter, Preston joined The 1863 Members Club following its launch last year.

And the Bradford-born soap star believes this is just the start as the Bulls continue their promotion charge.

“For me, this is the best time in almost 10 years to be watching the Bulls and I would urge as many people as possible to become members,” said Mr Preston.

“The 1863 Membership offers fantastic value for money, with everything going on, and it promises to get better and better going into next season.

“And for the first time in a long time, there is a real energy about the place – a real buzz.

“I have been a huge supporter of the club for over 60 years, both Bradford Bulls and Northern have been a massive part of my life.

“I could not be happier at the moment. It is fantastic to see the club heading in the right direction and I am thrilled with the progress being made, both on and off the field.

“The improvements being made to the stadium are absolutely fantastic, particularly in the Conference & Banqueting Facility.

“The work done in there is superb and the new Pavilion Bar is something else.

“On the field, things are going very well. The team is progressing brilliantly and everyone is excited going into the Super 8s.

“Leigh started the season very well but the tide, I believe, is turning and it will all come down to the business end of the campaign.

“James Lowes is undoubtedly the right man for the job – he is the man to help Bradford back into Super League.

“He has put together a squad that can more than cope with top-flight opposition, in my opinion, and it is continuing to improve and evolve.”
