After 11 years of loyal service to the club, Robbie Paul will make his final appearance for Bradford Bulls at Odsal Stadium on Friday, 27 January in a Testimonial Game against Hull Kingston Rovers. Paul, who made his debut in the 1994?95 season, will play in a Bulls side that will include guest appearances by former stars such as Henry Paul, James Lowes, Brian McDermott and Steve McNamara.
Robbie Paul said
?It will be great to say farewell to all at Bradford. The Bulls have been like my own family throughout my 11 years at Odsal and having Henry, Jimmy, Brian and Steve playing alongside me will add a very special feeling to what I know will be a great and emotional night. Hull KR will come prepared for a tough game and I know the Bulls are using the fixture as full preparation for the Carnegie World Club Challenge on February 3rd. I know the fans will want to come and see the former players and personally I can?t think of any better way of signing off at Odsal ? it should be a great night!?
Bulls Chairman Chris Caisley said:
?Anybody who is now or who ever has been a Bulls fan or a Rugby League supporter ought to come to Robbie's Testimonial game. Robbie was the "face" of the Bulls, our "shop window" as it were, throughout the first decade of Super League. He put his heart and soul into the Club, both on and off the field of play and has been a fantastic ambassador for the Bulls, the city of Bradford and the sport of Rugby League in this Country for over 10 years. There will be a chance to not only give Robbie a proper Bulls send-off but also an opportunity to see some other Bulls legends who are supporting his Testimonial. I urge everyone to come along to Odsal on 27 January, whatever the weather, and make it a big night to remember for Robbie.?
