Robbie Hunter-Paul to represent the Bahtats in Odsal curtain-raiser
Bulls legend Robbie Hunter-Paul will once again grace the famous Odsal turf on Sunday as Masters Rugby League returns to the Provident Stadium.
The Bradford chief executive, who enjoyed a glittering 12-year playing career with the Bulls, will represent the Bahtats in a side formed from a number of clubs across the country.
They have been chosen to do battle with an Australian Masters side, as they have been doing every two years since 2008.
The Bahtats currently enjoy an ongoing relationship with the Bulls and, from 1pm on Sunday, they will be in action during the curtain-raiser to the Super League encounter between Bradford and Catalan Dragons.
From there, the Bahtats will tackle Leeds on July 9 and Great Britain on July 12, before taking on Medway on the July 15.
The Bahtats' Great Britain representatives include players from Siddal, Brighouse Rangers, Castleford Panthers, Ossett Trinity, Rochdale Mayfield, Normanton Knights and Lock Lane. Together, they are the British ambassadors for Masters Rugby League.
The Bahtats have also developed a close working relationship with Rugby League Cares and helped with a number of the charities causes in recent years.
Masters Rugby League, which features players aged 35 or over, is a strictly social version of the sport, featuring slightly altered rules to cater for the older players.
