TODAY sees James Lowes' Bradford Bulls entertain arch-rivals Catalan Dragons at the Provident Stadium, in round nineteen of First:Utility Super League. 

Gates will open at 1.00pm ahead of Masters rugby league action between the Bahtats and Australia Masters, with Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul set to feature for the hosts (kick-off 1.00pm).

With the Grand Départ taking place in the region, Bradford Bulls would advise all supporters to plan their journey around local road closures and diversions, particularly those planning on traveling from the Keighley region.

However, we can confirm that there will be no road closures prior to the game in the immediate vicinity.

We'll be raising funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Bradford Bulls Academy, as we celebrate all things Yorkshire, with new boss Lowes coming 'home'. 

A bucket collection will take place during the half-time break and the entire Bulls squad will don special Marie Curie t-shirts during the pre-match warm-up.

Those enjoying hospitality this weekend will have the opportunity to participate in fundraising games and bid for the warm-up jerseys, which will be signed by each player, before a selection are auctioned online next week.
