The 2004 World Club Champions, Bradford Bulls, launched their 2005 season in style when over 1000 enthusiastic supporters packed into the Hilton Hotel in Bradford to see their heroes receive their shirts for Super League X.
The event, hosted by Pulse Radio presenters, Jacqui Blay and Steve Bailey, saw all the players receive their shirts and squad numbers for the season from Head Coach, Brian Noble. Every player spoke to the crowd and Robbie Paul gave his personal insight on the first ten years of Super League at the Bulls before Brian Noble told the enthusiastic crowd, ?I have a great team on the Bus this season and I can?t wait to drive it!?
There was video footage highlighting the Bulls achievements over the past decade and shots of some of the Club's legendary players of the Super League era.
Bulls Chairman, Chris Caisley, said
"This was without doubt the best night we have had to launch a season since the inception of Super League. The supporters were on a high right from the start of the evening and if we get that sort of enthusiastic support at Odsal on Sunday against Wakefield it will be fantastic. We sold over 500 home and away shirts on the night alone, which was great, and the new home shirt is selling like the proverbial hot cakes. I have a really good feeling about the 2005 season even though a lot of the so-called pundits have us as fourth or fifth favourites, because I know that the Club, our players, supporters and the people of Bradford always respond positively in adversity. It is good that outsiders have written us off already because it will make us and our supporters stronger for it. Many clubs would have been happy to be World Club winners and Grand Finalists but at the Bulls it was simply not acceptable."
Caisley added, "It was good last night to look back and reflect on what we have achieved but all that stuff is in the past and we will be talking no more about what happened last year or even last week. The Club, every person within and our supporters are a strong team and together we have one goal, to do better, both on and off the field, in 2005. Season Ticket sales are up, game days will be special, and the players are ready to go. Last night was terrific and we will be holding more events where we can interact with our supporters. Roll on Sunday."
