ROOLEY AVENUE TERRACE CLOSED THIS WEEKEND

04 Mar 2015

THE Provident Stadium's Rooley End will be closed to spectators this weekend.

 

Bradford Bulls officials are trialling the closure of the terrace in order to generate a greater atmosphere, by moving supporters closer together.

 

However, the main terrace (behind the tunnel) will remain open throughout the course of the 2015 season, providing high capacity levels in a popular area of the ground.

 

Admission prices are fixed for all terraced areas of the Provident Stadium, Odsal.

 

And we have some exciting news to share with you over the coming days, regarding what will be taking place at the Rooley End.

 

Bradford Bulls Media & PR Manager Ryan Sparks said: "We are trialling the closure of the Rooley Lane Terrace in order to focus on the concentrating of supporters into areas of the stadium in which we have invested extra resources into, in terms of matchday experience.

 

“This includes the earlier opening of certain areas of the stadium, improved bars and meeting areas and the all-new 'Incredibull' Family Zone.

 

“It is known in sport that supporters help create an atmosphere, which ultimately creates the overall experience.

 

“This measure will also avoid the diluting of an atmosphere within what is a very large stadium.

 

"Supporter experience is at the forefront of our minds, as we want our and our opponents' fans to enjoy the best-possible gameday.

 

"We want to create a better atmosphere and are lucky in the fact that we are part of sport where supporters do not need to be segregated.

 

"More so, we are committed to operating a viable business and as we hope supporters would agree, efficiency is vital in that. Again, this is the club showing that is it operating as efficiently possible while building on the matchday experience.

 

"Excitingly, we have some great things planned for the Rooley Avenue end of the ground, which we hope to launch this coming weekend.

 

"In order for supporters to get the most of out of what we are hoping to bring to the Provident Stadium, we believe bringing everyone closer together will be beneficial.”

ULUGIA HOPEFUL OF RECLAIMING HIS SPOT

03 Mar 2015

CHRIS Ulugia is hoping he has done enough to keep his place ahead of this weekend's visit of Hunslet Hawks, in Round Four of the Kingstone Press Championship.

 

The Samoa-born three-quarter crossed for a brace of tries during the Bulls' 40-4 beating of Featherstone Rovers over the weekend.

 

And if selected for this coming Sunday's game, Ulugia, who is sponsored by Tyre Power Ltd, is hoping for more of the same.

 

“I really enjoyed myself at Featherstone, it was good to get over the line on a couple of occasions too,” said the former Mackay Cutters talent.

 

“I made a mistake early on, which was frustrating, but I did what I could to make up for it.

 

“The scoreline doesn't entirely reflect what was a very difficult test for us, in my opinion. For a long period, it was difficult to score.

 

“However, having said that, I thought our overall team performance was the best yet. We were pretty ruthless and that is how we are going to need to play in order to get where we want to be this year.

 

“Hopefully I have taken my chance and done enough to keep my spot in the team for another week.

 

“This is a new level of rugby league for me and I am continuing to adapt, so the more game-time the better.”

 

Did you know you can save £2 on match admission for this Sunday's game by securing tickets BEFORE 5.00pm on Saturday?

MIXED RESULTS FOR YOUNG BULLS

02 Mar 2015

LEIGH Beattie's Bradford Bulls Under-16s made it two wins from two, after seeing off North East Academy in a 32-10 success over the weekend.

 

Going into the game fresh from a 40-4 hammering of Featherstone Rovers, the hosts made a flying start and were rewarded when Callum Robinson and Jay Panter crossed to hand the early initiative to Beattie's rising stars.

 

Craig McShane further extended the hosts' lead, before instrumental skipper Jacob Trueman sent Keelan Foster across the line to give the young Bulls an 18-0 advantage going into the break.

 

The visitors hit back early in the second-half, registering back-to-back tries to reduce the arrears, before a score from Joe Brown helped stem the tide.

 

Panter crossed soon after for his second, before Saul Adshead completed an impressive afternoon's work for the talented young Bulls.

 

Elsewhere, Matt Diskin's Under-19s battled in vain, going down to Wigan Warriors Under-19s 14-10.

 

Zak Baker was first across the whitewash in what was a tight encounter and he improved his own score to hand the Bulls an early lead.

 

The visitors' hit back and went into the break ahead, much thanks to tries from Oliver Gildart and Tom Davies.

 

Substitute James Bentley levelled matters with a second-half try.

 

But it was the Warriors celebrating at full-time, as Davies crashed over to secure victory for the Lancashire outfit.

 

The Under-19sr return to action on Saturday, taking on Midlands Academy from 2.00pm – away from home.

 

The Under-16s, meanwhile, will do the same in their next game, on Saturday March 21.
