Bradford Women’s team to headline double header at Odsal

Bradford Women’s Super League opener against Leeds will headline a double-header day with the men’s team at Odsal next Sunday, April 15.

The 2017 Women’s Super League and Challenge Cup winners will welcome the Rhinos for what will be their first game of the season, following the postponement of Leeds’ scheduled opener with Featherstone tomorrow night.

The game will kick-off at 3.45pm – following the Bulls’ League One clash against Coventry Bears at 2pm.

Bulls chairman, Andrew Chalmers, said: “It’s the Super League season opener for our Bradford Bulls Women against Leeds Rhinos, two of Rugby Leagues biggest brands. Our women are the defending Champions of the league and Challenge Cup Holders, they are Bradford’s leading sporting team.

“Gender doesn’t come into it. We’ll be fielding a number of international and locally developed rugby league players when they take the field on the 15th and it’s only fitting that they are allocated the feature game.

“Our men’s team will provide a guard of honour after their match against Coventry Bears and the entire club and fan base will be behind the Women as they seek to get off to a winning start against our traditional rivals, Leeds Rhinos.”

Hundreds of local women’s Rugby League players of all ages will be guests of the club for this historic fixture and will be taking part in a lap of honour and guard of honour to mark the opening of the Bulls Women’s season.
