World Champions. Bradford Bulls, are set for a bonanza when they play the biggest game of the season against Leeds Rhinos at Odsal next Saturday. 5th June. The game, which has been made all ticket because of the number of people wanting to see the showdown, will see the Bulls and the Rhinos lock horns for the second time this season. The first game at Headingley attracted a full house of 21,000 and although around 16,000 tickets have already been sold for the game, Bradford Bulls Chairman Chris Caisley is quick to point out that there is plenty of space at Odsal for the game.
?We have around 9,000 tickets left for the game and we are expecting some seat tickets back from Leeds, who have not sold their allocation. We don?t want anyone to miss this special game by being under the misapprehension that they will not be able to get in. The Odsal Ticket Office and the one at Headingley will be selling tickets all week and we urge all supporters to get their tickets in advance to avoid congestion on the night.
Our fantastic second half performance at St Helens shows how committed the players are to retaining the Tetley?s Super League Championship. After a difficult start to the season, due to the unprecedented amount of injuries so early in the year, the team has now settled down and is showing the form that won us the Treble last season and the World Club Championship in February. Games between Bradford and Leeds are the biggest in the sport and there is great interest in both cities as we approach the game. Leeds are League leaders and are playing very well but we are confident of matching them blow for blow in the biggest game of all.?
The Bulls v Rhinos clash is preceded by the Junior Academy Origin game between Yorkshire and Lancashire in which there are fourteen representatives from the two Yorkshire clubs on duty.
