St Helens Rugby League Club and Bradford Bulls Rugby League Club, the two most successful teams in Super League era, are putting aside their minor differences of opinion and are firmly focussing their joint efforts on promoting the exhilarating on-field spectacles which their teams provide to an admiring sporting public around the world week-in, week-out.
Eamonn McManus, Chairman of the Saints, stated:
“Saints and Bradford are each committed to providing world-class Rugby League in a friendly and entertaining environment. I firmly believe that we each achieve that better than most and this was epitomised by last week's breathtaking match between arguably the best two teams in the Rugby League world and in front of the two best sets of supporters in the game. Bradford are always very welcome at Knowsley Road and our own supporters will be looking forward immensely to the return trip to the Bradford & Bingley Stadium - if that game is half as good as last week's then it will be well worth the journey.
The best of luck to Bradford and their supporters for the rest of the season. It's going to be a thriller and we are all privileged to be part of the most knowledgeable, passionate and well-behaved supporters in the world.”
Chris Caisley, the Chairman of Bradford Bulls said:
“Saints and ourselves have agreed to draw a line under some of the recent off-field differences between our two clubs which have tended to detract from the excellent quality of the on-field performances. I look forward to warmly welcoming St Helens and their supporters to the Bradford & Bingley Stadium at Valley Parade on 16 August. It is a game not to be missed.” For further information contact:
