BRADFORD Amateur Rugby League's cup finals are set to return to Odsal Stadium in April.

The Jack Senior Memorial Cup and the Hudson Foster Supplementary Cup were forced to switch to Bradford Salem Rugby Football Club last season due to the Bulls' well-documented difficulties after being staged at the iconic venue for many years.

A delighted Bradford League secretary Bob Ingham welcomed the news, saying: “The return to Odsal is a major boost to the amateur game in Bradford.

"A number of players go on to play at professional level but the vast majority don’t, and to run out on the hallowed turf is the pinnacle of their careers.

"All the profits from the two games are donated back to the clubs, thereby providing vital funding in these difficult financial times. "We would like to express our thanks to the Bulls board for their support and commitment to the community game.”
