RFL JOIN NRL IN INTERCHANGE REVIEW

26 Mar 2015

THE Rugby Football League (RFL) is working with the National Rugby League (NRL) in Australia on a review of the interchange rules aimed at making the sport safer and more exciting to play and watch.

The review will consider the number of interchanges and the composition of the bench and will utilise statistical data gathered in both Super League and the NRL over the last decade.

It will be conducted by committee of experts including health specialists and academics, including Dr Kevin Norton, a Professor of Exercise Science in the School of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia who has conducted extensive research on injury development and fitness conditioning in a number of sports.

RFL Chief Operating Officer Ralph Rimmer said: “Rugby League is a sport that has continually evolved throughout its 120-year history, both on and off the pitch, and its rules have always reflected the way in which the game is played.

“Modern Rugby League players are outstanding physical athletes who are stronger, fitter and faster than ever before. Consequently, we believe that collisions are more powerful, which impacts on the health and welfare of our players.

“Both the RFL and the NRL recognise our responsibilities to not just deliver a fantastic, free-flowing spectacle but to protect the wellbeing of our players in an era when the use of the interchange bench means matches are more structured than ever before.

“We recognise that changes to the interchange rules could reduce the risk of injury by putting more emphasis on skill rather than power and size, and that may become more clear from the findings of the joint review.”

The review will take place over the next two months during which time there will be consultation with coaches, club representatives, players’ associations, fans and the two governing bodies.

The intention is for any final recommendations to be adopted in time for the start of the 2016 season.

BULLS BUILDING WITH ROBERT WATTS

26 Mar 2015

BRADFORD BULLS are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with property specialists Robert Watts.

 

Having five offices covering Bradford and the surrounding area, including an office in Wibsey, situated just a few minutes from the Bulls' Provident Stadium home, Robert Watts are a family-run business and were established in 1979.

 

The estate agents first backed the Bulls in 2014, securing the player sponsorship of winger Danny Williams.

 

And the four-figure renewal will see advertising billboards, featuring Robert Watts branding, located in and around the ground.

 

Bulls commercial manager Rob Parker believes the agreement is an indicator of confidence growing confidence in the club.

 

“When I came to Bradford I highlighted key businesses in the area we could partner and Robert Watts was one of them,” said the former Super League star, who won Super League, Challenge Cup and World Club Challenge titles in Bulls colours.

 

“To bring them in as a major partner is great in terms of the confidence surrounding the club, having another family-run business backing this prestigious brand.

 

“The fact they want to be associated with us is especially pleasing. The company are proud Bradfordians who want to see the club succeed.

 

“They sponsor Danny Williams, who has been a revelation since joining the club, and we are delighted to secure an extended partnership with them.”

 

James Hart, a director of Robert Watts, has spoken of the business' pride at backing the Bulls in 2015.

 

“As a professionally-qualified family business, established in Bradford for over five decades, we here at Robert Watts are proud to be part of this exciting new chapter with the Bulls,” he said.

 

“This partnership is further evidence of our continued support for sport at all levels and the community within this great city of Bradford.

 

“All of our directors live within the Bradford district and this tenacious city is where we live, work and play!”

GOOD FRIDAY: THE COUNTDOWN TO KICK OFF IS ON

25 Mar 2015

THE countdown to Friday Night Fight Night – The Battle For West Yorkshire – is on!

 

James Lowes' in-form Bradford Bulls take on local rivals Halifax on Good Friday, April 3, right here at the Provident Stadium, Odsal, in arguably the biggest home league game of the season.

 

In the first of a three-game series with the Calderdale outfit in 2015, with Bradford's Summer Bash contest and a reverse tie still to come, excitment is already growing.

 

It will be the first time in over a decade that the two sides have faced off in a regular-season league match.

 

And with a bumper gameday in store, as Matt Diskin's Under-19s tackle Hull FC in the official curtain raiser from 5.30pm, this is a battle you cannot afford to miss!

 

Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul believes the West Yorkshire rivals will roll back the years on Good Friday – and is hoping to witness a memorable Kingstone Press Championship clash.

 

“We have what I see as our biggest home game of the season on the horizon and I personally cannot wait for the action to begin,” said Hunter-Paul, who captained the Bulls in a host of Super League ties against Halifax during his time as a player at the Provident Stadium, Odsal.

 

“I enjoyed many hard-fought battles against Halifax, these matches were like two tribes going to war. As players we were desperate to win the bragging rights.

 

"We would always get caught up in the emotional drive created by our supporters during the lead up to these games.

 

“Derbies of this magnitude are the life blood of the sport, in my opinion, and this is was makes the stadium experience unique to Britain - especially here in Yorkshire.

 

“This is the first game of what I believe will be an exciting series and, as such, we have labelled this 'The Battle for West Yorkshire'. It will be tough, exciting and passionate.

 

“This is a massive occasion for both Bradford and Halifax and we are expecting our biggest crowd of the season for what should be a fantastic evening of rugby league and an atmosphere you won't want to miss.”

 

We want you to get involved in the Friday Night Fight Night build-up across our social media channels, by using the hashtag #FNFN.
