CAPTAIN'S LOG: A GREAT PLEASURE TO WELCOME THE HAWKS

06 Mar 2015

“GROWING up watching Hunslet and playing for Hunslet Parkside and Hunslet Warriors, it gives me great pleasure to see them visiting us at the Provident Stadium, Odsal, this weekend.

 

I am currently struggling with a knee injury, which has sadly ruled me out of the game, but I am hoping to be back very soon. It is a bit of an ongoing thing, which our medical staff are monitoring.

 

We have all been taken back by the support received so far in 2015 and I know the boys are looking forward to playing in front of our fantastic home support again this afternoon.

 

We have not reached our peak yet, though, and I feel there is plenty more improvement to come from us.

 

However, we are extremely pleased with the way we have bounced back against two very good sides.

 

Last week we travelled to Featherstone, well aware of the fact we were facing a momentous task in bringing the two points back. But we were fantastic and more than got the job done.

 

Once again Lee Gaskell was tremendous and it was great to see so many of our players going well. I thought our pack was fantastic and our three-quarters linked up superbly.

 

Having been on the wrong end of a second half comeback at Leigh, we knew we had to come out, silence the home crowd and deal with everything Featherstone would throw at us after the break.

 

And we did just that.

 

It was also good to see Epalhame Lauaki make his debut, he has been working incredibly hard in training and I feel sure he will prove a coup for us as the season progresses.

 

Dale Ferguson made his return from injury, which is another massive boost for the club. It is like having a new signing on board. He has endured a torrid time injury-wise but now looks to be on the right track again.

 

I think Hunslet will be tricky this weekend, providing a very different type of opposition.


The likes of Vinny Finigan, George Flanagan and Jordan Gale have all played in the junior and senior sides here, so we are well aware of the qualities they boast and the danger they present to us.

 

And they have made some decent dual-registration additions too, with a fair few Leeds Rhinos coming in.

 

But with your fantastic support behind us, I am sure the boys can make the day an enjoyable one for everyone involved in the club.

 

Thank you for your continued support and have a great weekend!"

 

Yours in sport,

Chev Walker – Proudly Sponsored By Helen Smith & Cathertin Kendrick

YOUNG KEIR TAKES NO.18 JERSEY

05 Mar 2015

BRADFORD Bulls are delighted to unveil the 18th member of James Lowes' 2015 squad.

 

The No.18 jersey was up for grabs as part of The Big Kick-Off Raffle last month and 11-year-old Keir Claxton (pictured above alongside Robbie Hunter-Paul) has been unveiled as the winner!

 

Keir, who plays for Keighley Albion – an official Bradford Bulls Connection club, was gifted a raffle ticket by his parents.

 

And the youngster was last week named the winner of the top prize in a competition, which included a £500 cash prize and winners of various other fantastic prizes.

 

“We are delighted to hand over the coveted No.18 jersey to the very lucky Keir,” said a Bradford Bulls spokesperson.

 

“It is fantastic how the prize was won via one of the community clubs our foundation is currently working with.

 

“He will take his place in squad, both online and in print, and we look forward to welcoming Keir and his family to the Provident Stadium, Odsal, in the weeks and months ahead.”

 

Keir's profile will be placed on the official website as of this weekend and his details will also appear, alongside his Bulls 'team-mates' in The Bulletin – from now until the end of the season!
