Bulls launch away shirt in

The UK?s most successful Rugby Club, World Champions, Bradford Bulls, yesterday launched their new ?Away? shirt in the Republic of Ireland. The shirt, in the traditional Irish green colour, has the name of one of Ireland?s leading Charities, the Jack & Jill Foundation, on the sleeve and the Bulls will make a donation to the Charity for every shirt sold.

Bulls players Paul Deacon and Karl Pratt were in Dublin for the launch and presented a shirt to Damien Thomson of Holy Rosary School who won a competition run in conjunction with Ireland?s leading daily newspaper, the Irish Sun. The Bulls will undertake further development work in the Republic in January of next year.

Bulls Community Development Manager, Chris Rostron, said:

"We are very proud to be able to support the Jack and Jill Foundation in this venture and our activities at the launch see a continuation of our commitment to further develop Rugby League with all communities. The Jack & Jill Foundation is a very worthwhile cause, which we hope the Rugby League Community in general will support. The launch is a further stepping stone in our five year development plan for Ireland and we are looking forward to returning to the Republic in January."
