BRADFORD BULLS' wheelchair team have recorded a third-placed finish in the National League and are now gearing up for play-off action.

Six wins in eight games has moved Richard Johnson's side into the title frame, with silverware up for grabs.

The Finals day will take place right here in Bradford, at the Richard Dunn's Sports Centre, on September 7.

The Bulls' play-off date is set to be finalised in the coming weeks, with that tie being played at their Bradford College Trinity Green Campus home.

Coach Johnson said: “I could not be prouder of the squad for what they have achieved this year .

“Everyone at the club is excited about the future and, of course, how we are going to carry on the Bradford Bulls legacy through the wheelchair game.”

Team manager Gill Johnson, who works tirelessly to aid the growth of wheelchair rugby league in Bradford – alongside husband Richard – added: “We have reached a place higher than last year and the players have worked hard, trained even harder, showing great discipline throughout the course of the season.

“The club has a number of new players on its roster, who have fitted in well and scored plenty of tries!

“Everyone has fierce pride in their shirt and the Bradford Bulls club, as well as the Bradford Bulls Foundation.

“We are now looking forward to getting the play-offs underway but win or lose, the players have everything to be proud of.”

Meanwhile, the wheelchair club has been hard at work in the community, with sessions recently taking place within a host of schools in the district.

They were also well represented in the England Wheelchair Rugby Union 7s' friendly clash with Italy earlier this year, with six featuring for the Barbarians in a recent Four Nations competition.
