BRADFORD Bulls and Toronto Wolfpack have announced a new Transatlantic Challenge.

The first match will take place at the Provident Stadium Odsal on Friday, January 26 as the 2017 Kingstone Press League 1 champions play their only pre-season game.

Wolfpack's director of rugby is Bradford legend, Brian Noble. He said : “I am hugely excited about this fixture and a return to Odsal for myself."

This will be the Wolfpack's only pre-season game and one in which we will be giving our entire first team squad a run out to face the Challenge of the Bulls,” said Noble.

The second leg of the Transatlantic Challenge is likely to take place in the United States in 2019, aiding the expansion of Rugby League overseas.
