Robbie Hunter-Paul to represent the Bahtats in Odsal curtain-raiser

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul will pull on his boots again on Sunday Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul will pull on his boots again on Sunday

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.

You didn't say that when he was the last man standing on two occasions when there was no one else left. He also gave the Club some integrity. Don't be so ungracious. As a Club we don't have many friends, and must stick to the ones we have

We don't have many friends your right and it's becoming more and more that way ,the RFL don't like the fact we are taking things to the high court so they manipulate wins for wildcats against Wigan and Leeds so it makes it harder for the bulls to stay to stay in super league even if we win the appeal there seems to be a conspiracy so the RFL don't have egg on there face they know there wrong but will not admit it so make things harder for for the bulls they conjure these results if a player did the same he would be banned from the sport and probley go to jail but the RFL get away scot free it stinks worse than rotting fish

To comment on 1964 "dweeb" is to be as stupid as he apparently is? He doesn't seem to realise that the game has gone professional, and people get paid for working?

However to comment on tezzawils, whilst I probably feel that the Wigan game was inevitable that Wakey would win, given that Wigan had played 3 games in a week, and the Leeds game was somehow decided on an unjust call plus the fact that we all know that home fixtures bring the revenue streams into profit more than away fixtures and Wakefield have an unprecedented run of 5 games at home, followed by another run of home fixtures, making it 8 home games in the final 10 games of the season. So, 80% Home for Wakey. and 40% for the Bulls just as an example.

One consolation is that the crowd was still less than we attract even with our dire circumstances?

Mm I have a fair idea about professionals being paid etc,I personally employ around 90 staff and have seen loads of people over the years "milk" their positions purely for self preservation.
And for the record I have supported the bulls financially to the tune of thousands over the years

Im Stupid ............apparent

Robbie is Bradford Bulls through and through. i'd rather pay him than anyone else to do the job. Its a shame the way Peter Hood just let our former "greats" leave the club and take so much of the club with them. We needed to keep the likes of Robbie and McDermott, who was such a leader within the squad rather than let them go to hudds etc
