Bradford Rugby Club to Return in 2017

The Rugby Football League has agreed on a deal that will see a new Bradford club operate for the start of the season.

The Bradford Bulls closed their doors early January after years of financial problems and a successful consortium were unable to make a winning bid on the club.

The new Braford franchise will remain in the Kingstone Press Championship, but will start the new season with a 12-point deficit.

Odsal Stadium will also be their new home, as the RFL own the lease for the stadium

Now the new club is on the hunt for players for the 2017 season and beyond

More to come…
