BRADFORD Bulls Women are ready to produce a statement away performance at league leaders, Warrington Wolves, this Sunday.

That's according to Bulls' assistant coach, Kieran Walker, who believes his side have what it takes to be the first team to defeat the 'Wolves' this season.

Bradford are coming into this fixture against the Women's Super League's high-flyers with a spring in their step after they cruised to a 48-16 victory at Castleford Tigers last Sunday.

And Bulls will be looking to put a dent in Warrington's title surge this weekend, whilst they'll also be looking to reduce the gap between themselves (fourth) and Warrington in first.

Ahead of the fixture, Walker said: " We are fully aware that this weekend will be a very tough challenge; obviously Warrington are at the top of the table and are unbeaten, so it will be a good test for our girls but we are certainly up for it.

"I believe it's a game that is well in our grasp. We know we've got the talent to beat them but we have to believe in ourselves and make sure we stick together as a team. When it comes to the adverse times during the game, that's when it really matters.

"It's a massive game and a victory could give us confidence for the rest of the season, that's how big of an opportunity this fixture is. We've had some really good wins so far this season, but a win here would be our biggest since I've been with the team and I believe it would push the girls on to that next level."

Warrington have the best attacking and defensive record in the division, conceding only six points in the five games they have played; a remarkable feat for any side.

It will be a challenge for the visitors to halt the home side's momentum, but Walker admitted that the Bulls must "concentrate on their own game."

He added: "We know they're going to be well drilled because they have some ex-professionals helping them out in the coaching set-up, so for us it's a case of building a high amount of pressure to ensure they can't get into a rhythm.

"At the same time, we have a lot of quality within the group and we will look to utilise that at every opportunity possible.

"We must make sure we make the right decisions when the times comes to play and we must stay strong and together in the defensive phase."

Bradford currently occupy fourth spot in the Super League table and have four wins out of their first seven fixtures and reflecting on his side's start to the campaign, Walker said: "The squad went through a big overhaul during the summer, with some girls retiring, some girls joining from other clubs and we added some youngsters to the side, also.

"We sold a two-year plan to the new arrivals and mentioned that this season we would be competitive and next season would be the year where we were challenging at the top.

"So, for this season, we are where we believe we should be and me and Shaun (Flynn) are really happy with the progress that has been made."
