I can see Widnes winning this, Bradford don't look great at the moment, Widnes need to smarten up their defence, but i like their style of attack, It's entertaining.

Manuokafoa back for Bradford. Really missed his go forward in pack whiles he's been out. Purtell returns as well. Would have prefered to have sammut available as well but think we'll edge it with home advantage.

The gap between games at Odsal since the Leeds game is ridiculous. I am working this weekend and might not be able to go next week. No wonder people get out of the habit

Pretty much sh*t or bust every week now, and we desperately need to break this terrible run, so this probably is the best opportunity we have to do that. Our first game at home since 3rd May (7 weeks, folks) and I'm going into tomorrow nervously, yet quietly, confident.

I thinik it's the Bulls game to lose, so if at their best a home win - if not at their best, well who knows?

 

Btw, can anyone remind me how to get to Odsal? It seems such a long long time......

Yep. Bulls up 8 at half time and playing reasonably well. Two tries from Widnes after a series of mystery penalties on both occasions. Blythe doing well keeping Hock under control at the moment.

Low crowd.

Bulls 28 - 32 Widnes.

The traditional 60+ point game for Widnes and they've nicked it.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Oh dear. Looking like a long rest of the season. No play offs will not help the financial area one bit. Roll on next season.
