BRADFORD Bulls Women are having a miserable time in the end of season Super League Shield, having now suffered three defeats from three.

New boss Shaun Flynn felt Featherstone would be Bulls’ only real rival to win the Shield, competed for by the bottom five from the regular Super League season, but things have not really worked out for his side.

Having lost 28-4 to Fev last Sunday, Bulls sit joint-bottom of the pile with Wakefield, having also gone down to Warrington (24-6) and Huddersfield (32-10) in the Shield last month.

Bulls host Wakefield at Odsal this Sunday in a wooden spoon clash. The men’s first team are away at Widnes, and they have reminded fans that tickets can only be bought directly from Sunday’s hosts.

Back to the Women’s Super League Shield business, and all of Huddersfield, Warrington and Featherstone are in with a chance of the title still.

The former sit top, but have played all of their games.

In the final game showdown on Sunday between Fev and Warrington, if the former win, the title is theirs, but if Warrington win, it will come down to points difference between themselves and Huddersfield.

In the Women’s Super League play-offs, between the top five in the regular season, St Helens are top with two wins from two.

Leeds are second, having also won twice, but with a defeat against their name too, they have some catching up to do with Saints.
