Nell McAndrew to kick off Super
League IX at Odsal

The UK?s most successful Rugby Club, World Champions Bradford Bulls, have today announced that international model and TV personality Nell McAndrew will get the Tetley?s Super League IX off to a great start at Odsal on Friday 20th February.

The Bulls play Wigan Warriors in a repeat of last season?s Grand Final and McAndrew will bring on the Match Ball for the players ahead of the game. It is part of a fun filled night of events as the Bulls aim to make their Gameday Experience at Odsal better than ever.

Bradford Bulls Media Manager, Stuart Duffy said:

"The Bulls are delighted to welcome Nell McAndrew to Odsal Stadium on Friday night. She continues our tradition of big name celebrity visitors to the Bulls to kick off the season following Gareth Gates' appearance in 2003. She is a local girl who loves her sport, although as she is now based in London she doesn't get the opportunity to get live Rugby League as much as she would like. We hope she enjoys her time with us for what should be an epic encounter with the Warriors."

Nell McAndrew is looking forward to the occasion:

"I am delighted to attend the match between the Bulls and Wigan Warriors at Odsal Stadium on Friday. My family have long enjoyed a great game of Rugby League, and it will be an honour to present the Match Ball at the first game of the new Tetley?s Super League season. Odsal is a great place to be when a game is going on, and I?m looking forward to the people of Bradford joining me at Odsal and getting behind the team on Friday night."
