BULLS Women face a mouthwatering Challenge Cup quarter-final tie on Sunday, May 9, against none other than Leeds Rhinos.

That means they will be in action against their great rivals a month earlier than expected, with the duo set to take each other on in the league on June 20 too.

Leeds will be heavy favourites to win the cup tie, as they come into the game off the back of a thumping 60-16 win over York City Knights on the opening day of the Super League season a fortnight ago.

By contrast, a youthful Bulls side crashed to an 86-0 defeat against title contenders St Helens.

Bradford are hoping to gain some confidence for their cup clash with Leeds when they take on Wigan this Sunday in the league.
