Bramley bid for sixth Grand Final

Bramley Buffaloes‘ bid for a sixth consecutive Grand Final appearance faces a tough test this weekend with Warrington Wizards the visitors to the Arthur Miller Stadium on Saturday 11th September (kick-off 2.30pm).
Victory would assure Mark Butterill’s side of a place at Warrington on Sunday 26th September but the Buffaloes coach is taking nothing for granted: “It’s all going to plan. This is where we wanted to be at the start of the season and we hope this is our only play-off match but we will have to be on our guard against opponents who can turn on the style when they have to. There will be no complacency and I hope we get the Bramley supporters turning out in force.
“We lost our last regular season game at Huddersfield Underbank and that was a stark lesson in not taking your eye off the ball. This is a fantastic group of lads who are all focused on the end goal and we’ll need to maintain that for at least another 160 minutes this season if we are to repeat last year’s triumph.
“I’ve been delighted by the progress we’ve made in what has been a tough season with two teams withdrawing but I feel we’ve kicked on from last year and a win against Warrington would be fantastic.
“We could be facing them again in the Grand Final but we’ll worry about that if it happens. My major concern is Saturday and ensuring we get the job done,” added Butterill who has no major injury concerns and expects to welcome back powerhouse centre Paul Gledhill back into the squad.
