THE FANTASTIC 4 HOME GAMES
30 Jul 2015
BLAKE Solly is fully confident that Bradford Bulls can achieve an immediate return to the sport’s top flight in the weeks and months ahead.
James Lowes’ men begin their Super 8s campaign on Sunday August 9, taking on Sheffield Eagles at the Provident Stadium – in round one of ‘The Qualifiers’.
Solly is the General Manager of First:Utility Super League and spoke highly of Bradford’s chances at yesterday’s Super 8s launch in Manchester.
“With the resurgence of Bradford, the club has every reason to be really optimistic,” said the Australian, who has overseen the introduction of an exciting new structure for rugby league in 2015.
“The Bulls are still strengthening their squad going into the Super 8s and made another interesting signing on Tuesday.
“They have some big games early on and I feel the Wakefield one will be key to their success.
“They have every reason to go into it feeling pretty confident, wanting to win.
“And I think the Bulls have a really good chance of either going up or at least making it into ‘The Million Pound Game’.
“Bradford is a great club, which should be bringing big crowds to big events, and if they can get back up into Super League they will be a very welcome addition.”
Solly believes the fresh-look structure, which sees the sport’s top two tiers split into three groups of eight after 23 regular rounds of the season, is already proving a great success.
Anticipation is certainly high heading into a brand-new era for the 13-man game and Solly is expecting a hugely competitive season climax.
“We did a lot of hard work on the model to start with and we were always pretty confident but, until things start happening, you are never quite sure,” he added.
“You never pat yourself on the back too early but it has been a great season.
“The Kingstone Press Championship has probably been the one we did not expect to be as good as it has been.
“I think the Championship sides that go into The Qualifiers will be really competitive.
“Speaking to the Super League clubs, they know they are going to face really tough opposition each week and will have to be on top of their game to beat them, which is exactly what we wanted.
“The Super League clubs feel like there is something outside of Super League for them to be worried about.
“Super League should be something that people prize and it is hard to get into, so you have to work hard to stay in it.”
You can enjoy all of the Super 8s action, right here at the Provident Stadium, by securing a Route 66 pass TODAY!
Watch Lowes’ Bulls battle Sheffield, Halifax, Widnes and Salford on home soil for just £66 – that’s FOUR games for the price of THREE.

BRADFORD Bulls are delighted to announce the signing of State of Origin star Dane Nielsen, who has agreed a deal which will keep him at the Provident Stadium until the end of next season.
‘Danger’ Nielsen, 30, has spent his entire career playing in the NRL, having appeared for Cronulla Sharks, Melbourne Storm, New Zealand Warriors and, most recently, St George Illawarra Dragons.
An ex-NRL Grand Finalist, three-quarter Nielsen has previously represented Queensland and the Indigenous All Stars.
He is due to arrive in the UK later this week, once his visa application has been approved, and Bulls head coach James Lowes is delighted to have secured the Mackay-born talent's services.
“I expect Dane to make a huge impact for us, he is raring to go and is already in good shape,” said Lowes, who is sponsored in memory of Joyce Dobby.
“He will bring a wealth of experience, having played at the highest level for the past nine years or so.
“Obviously we will assess him when he arrives but he certainly isn’t coming to train. He is here to play and we have signed him to play in the centres.
“There is a wealth of competition for places out wide but perhaps what we are lacking is a little experience – and he will certainly bring it.
“I expect him to be a strong character around the place, giving us some real leadership during what is an exciting, yet crucial part of our campaign.”
Phoenix Gates & Metal Fabrications have kindly agreed to sponsor Nielsen for the remainder of the season.
