IT IS a bumper week for Bulls, with six games in seven days at Odsal, and a young trio set to represent their county this weekend.

The first team are facing the first of two home games in a row but there is so much more to look forward to at Odsal.

In her weekly column for the T&A, Bulls' general manager Tracey Erby said: "After a week off, we are back with a bang with six games in the space of seven days at Odsal Stadium to come.

"Our reserves welcome Huddersfield Giants to Odsal Stadium this afternoon, looking to build on their impressive 66-12 victory over Newcastle Thunder last time out.

"Sunday then sees an exciting double header taking place, with Mark Dunning’s side renewing rivalries with York City Knights before our women’s side kick off their Super League campaign with a home clash against Featherstone Rovers, which takes place after the men’s fixture.

"Looking ahead to next week, our academy side, fresh off the back of their 30-28 win over Wakefield Trinity last time out, play against Leeds Rhinos on Thursday evening, and who doesn’t love a match against our West Yorkshire rivals under the lights?

"Next Saturday then sees both the men’s and women’s team do battle on our hallowed turf.

"Shaun Flynn’s women’s side play Leigh Miners Rangers before Newcastle Thunder take on our first team from 6pm.

"The whole afternoon and evening will see us celebrating diversity and inclusivity, with a range of activities and entertainment available on the concourse."

And buying into that theme of diversity and inclusivity is Bulls' new Pride-inspired kit.

Erby said: "As you will have already seen, Thursday saw us launch our third kit, which will be worn for the first time in our fixture against Newcastle next week.

"Having had many discussions with the Bradford Pride team, we are delighted to show our support in this way and early sales have exceeded all expectations.

"We have a very limited number of shirts remaining from our first batch, but we will be placing further orders up to the end of the month.

"Head to or visit the team shop to place your pre-order.

"For those who have already pre-ordered, our first batch of shirts is expected to land with us in the coming days. We will be in contact you directly once they have arrived."

As for the origin boys, Erby said: "Looking back on the field of play, albeit a bit further afield, George Flanagan Jr, Myles Lawford and Bailey Arnold could all feature for the Yorkshire Academy side in the first of their three-game series against Lancashire this weekend.

"Their call up is a credit to themselves, their families, the coaching staff at Tong and Bullbuilder, who continue to be huge supporters of the club’s academy and we certainly wouldn’t be enjoying the success we are with player development without them.

"We are very proud of all three players and we are sure they will do themselves justice if selected."

And with a final word on the first team, Erby said: "It is a huge game for the first team on Sunday as we look to make it back to back wins against one of our rivals.

"It is also Mark’s first home game as interim head coach and I am sure it will be a proud moment for him.

"It will be great to see the famous Bradford Bulls fans showing their support for Mark and roaring the team on.

"We have live entertainment on pre and post-match, alongside a happy hour beer promotion.

"Thank you for your continued support and we will see you on Sunday."
