BULLS' acting chief executive, Mark Sawyer, has admitted that the club did consider the possibility of ground sharing with City going forward.

Speaking to rugby league commentator Mick Gledhill on West Yorkshire Radio Rugby League, he said the Bulls were weighing up the pros and cons of shacking up alongside either City at Valley Parade or Bradford (Park Avenue) at Horsfall.

They also looked into whether it was viable to get funding to build themselves a new stadium in Bradford.

But in the end, after weighing up the pros and cons, Sawyer said it was decided that the greatest benefit to the club was to focus on returning to Odsal.

He stressed once again that the ultimate goal was to ensure that the Bulls were playing within the city of Bradford, something they were unable to do in 2020, with home games taking place in Dewsbury.

But given the growing prospect of stock cars also returning to Odsal from next Easter, as well as the Bulls being in with a chance of getting that coveted 12th Super League spot for 2021, a return that seemed like a pipe dream a few months ago moves closer to being a reality.
