ROVERS END BULLS' UNBEATEN RUN

01 Jul 2015

BRADFORD Bulls’ long unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Featherstone Rovers this evening.

The Rovers stormed into an early lead and when the Bulls got themselves back into the game, the visitors pulled away again before half-time.

Andy Hay’s men made a similarly good start to the second half and, despite another attempted Bulls comeback, last season’s beaten Championship Grand Finalists pulled away again to secure a vital victory in their race for a Super 8s place.

BULLS FAMILY COME TOGETHER FOR SAMMI

30 Jun 2015

BRADFORD Bulls players will be taking part in a charity leg wax to raise funds for Sammi Petersen tomorrow evening.

James Lowes’ players will be taking one for the team before and after kick-off of the Bulls’ rearranged round-thirteen Kingstone Press Championship clash with Featherstone Rovers.

Sammi, the sister of Bulls back-rower Dave Petersen, was a passenger in a recent road-traffic accident which left with life-changing injuries.

Dave, currently on loan at Sheffield Eagles, has organised the fund and will return to the Provident Stadium tomorrow as the Bulls family show their support.

Left paralysed from the chest down, the funds raised will go towards making life as comfortable as possible for Sammi.

The waxing will take place in the marquee from 6.00pm and in the Conference and Banqueting Centre after the final hooter.

To show your support and make a donation CLICK HERE.

Matt Diskin’s Under-19 Academy players will also be collecting donations in buckets around the Provident Stadium, Odsal.

Tickets for tomorrow night’s game are still available and can be purchased by CLICKING HERE.
