More news of note;

Aaron Murphy will join in 2021 from Huddersfield Giants. Very good signing IMO, 2 year contract.

Levy Nzoungou extends his deal to the end of 2021, excellent prospect Thomas Doyle again extends to 2021.

Murphy and Brough both excellent signings. And in what could be a very tough league, what you need.

Any news on when you maybe coming back to Bradford?

No news on the proposed/wished for move back to Bradford however it won't be next season that I am confident of.

Connor Farrell has announced his retirement at the end of the season (effectively now) due to ongoing injuries.

Unless in the the unlikely event of Odsal having a revamp or a totally new ground i can't see any value of moving back to to Bradford. The Bulls are very unlikely to be able to afford the rent the soccer club would want.
Such a shame about Connor Farrell, but sport can be cruel

Rooks is a good signing IMO and more good news Matty Race has signed for the next year, a talented full back who has very impressive through the academy and reserves.

Reported that Bradford are considering an application for SL. Can I please mention that whilst the club holds a place for me and is not ever too far from my thought this IMHO is insane.

1, currently run by a chairman of another club
2, currently have a competitive (part time) team for the Championship (which I am very much looking forward to)
3, the "preferred" club receives £800k less than the rest of SL (how are they going to deal with the above?)
4, oh yes, no stadium.

SL, in 2021.......really??????

Cart before the horse in my opinion. As you point out they need to sort out so much before even thinking of sl in my opinion. And I'm really not sure it's the right move for the club.

Toulouse are the club in my opinion who should get it.

Agreed, Bulls sign Elliot Wallis on loan from Hull KR for next season, do you know much about him?

Saw him once, has a bit of pace. Looked good defensively. And had fairly good hands. We played him as a winger, but that day and at York(loan), he played in the centers and looked very good. He's was well rated around the club, and think he'll go well in what is looking a very strong division.

New Home kit released.
Black shoulders, and top part going into a v. White bottom half, the red and Amber stripe on the bottom half of the black.
Looks really smart.

Luke, apologies I did read and appreciate your comment regarding Elliot Wallis but notice I did not reply. Thank you, I am looking forward to see him in the Red Amber and Black.

Home kit is very nice. I normally prefer a polo but not with this.

Meanwhile talks continue for Stock Cars to return to Odsal with a view to the Bulls moving back.

Thank you GH. Bradford were talking to Ukuma Taʻai and Tom Olbison but could not afford either.

A reasonably balanced squad who IMO with luck regarding injuries have a chance of finishing in the top 6 but I do expect a very tight middle part of the table and not much to pick between 6 - 7 sides.

No real surprise today i.e. bit of a hiding at Featherstone. I have not yet seen the game to be fair however I did listen to commentary and there were fairly clearly two 10 - 15 minute periods when they completely dropped off and were punished by an excellent Rovers side.

The club have signed Jack Sanderson (Utility Back) and out of retirement Anthony Walker on one year contracts. Rumours that Ben Evans released by Toulouse is heading to the UK for talks with John Kear.

Nigel Wood has been appointed as new Chairman. This also allows Mark Sawyer to take a step back who I think the club owes a huge debt to.

George Flanagan has been suspended for 10 games following an alleged "squirrel" tackle during the cup game v Fev. I thought he was pretty fortunate to be offered a new contract following a similar (and clear cut) foul during the 2019 Toronto game, this latest incident just 5 competitive games since the previous ban ended. I think there might be an appeal on the basis video evidence is inconclusive however Jack Bussey's (Fev) evidence is clear, consistent and entirely trustworthy. I can only hope that any contact was accidental.

Anthony England (previously at Wakefield) has been forced to retire due to injury. Terrible news for him following a fine career, I wish him well for the future.

League season starts on Sunday, important game at Sheffield. The above news combined with Jordan Lilley (Suspended), Sam Halls (Broken Jaw) and Matty Dawson-Jones (Fractured shoulder) whilst Ben Evans has indeed signed the squad is looking a somewhat thin.

Possibly the RFL and the Stock car people and lest not forget that the RFL have lease

George Flanagan in my opinion for lucky to get off with only a 10 game ban with his past history

Never really understood giving a deal to Flanagan, he always struck me as a dirty player. And in this league, with a smallish squad seemed a liability you could have done out

Bad result today, not so much the loss. Sheffield are a decent side, the margin would be more of a worry.

Possibly however as you will see from these "highlights" there is some very poor defence on show seemingly in structure, attitude and application. What this does not show is that the Eagles made easy yards straight through the middle all afternoon.

The final coupe de grace was scored when Sheffield were a player down (sin bin), you'd never know it from this.

With the new rules they might need some more mobile forwards when defending

Two weeks on and Halifax tomorrow afternoon/evening? Not expecting a win but I know it is only two games in but a big improvement in attitude is IMO essential. Jordan Lilley should be back, although having only played a few minutes of the pre-season warm up I would imagine he will be rusty.

Big improvement delivered. Certainly worried at 14 - 0 down and then to blow a 24 - 14 lead but rode their luck winning 27 - 26. My turn for a lie down.

A great win, and a massive pick up. And hopefully a boast that you needed, especially given some of the other results. Going to be very competitive for the play off places. Maybe you can be up there at the end.

Having seen the tries, Pickersgill's is fantastic. But to me both the 2nd, and 4th are off forward passes (The 4th is very forward).

At some point we need to put the emphasises back on not allowing forward passes, and actually penalizing them, or a vital part if the game is not important.

Somebody is going to have a spend a lot of money on Odsal to make get it up to a reasonable standard, and it won't be the RFL as they have the sort of money the ground needs spending on it.

A hard fought win at Whitehaven, Swinton today. In theory it should be a win but it is not clear at present who is fit, last week they ran of interchanges in the second half.

Phew. That was way way closer than it should have been. I was going to comment earlier on the nu. of re-starts and penalties conceded and today it very nearly cost them the game..........that and missed opportunities.

Credit to Swinton they battled and took their chances but they were IMO given an invitation back into a game that should have been put to bed after 55 - 60 minutes.

Generally an awful game, 2 points in the bag......clinging on at the end.

Statement to come from the Bulls and Newcastle tomorrow. The game moved to 17.05.2021 to allow fans in.......can't be shown on the Our League app as there is a SL game that evening????

Seen the tries, Pickersgill looked fantastic at times, but from that. Though important, thought when Lilley dropped the goal, killed your attacking momentum. But it's a win.
