  1. Well done to the club for securing this player. 😊
  2. Thanks gary thats good news.
  3. Getting some loans from widnes but not DR donald.
  4. I think fans are gonna have to dig deep with loyalty this season. You can only spend what is in the pot and thats the bottom line. If you look around WC the semi pro players pot is low and it needs replenished so it has to be addressed.
  5. Thanks for the update gary and hopefully some announcements soon. When we look at the bulls situation as fans we must see that budgets must be stuck to. God help any small clubs that have met these unrealistic wage demands. Now that is, playing with fire.
  6. UPDATE: The RFL have had around 10 serious expressions of interest already for a new club in Bradford. The RFL has set a deadline of noon on Monday 9 January for people to bid for the club. The Executive will work their way through each bid and meet with any serious bidder that week to analyse their proposal. Hopefully they'll then make a recommendation to the Board by the end of next week. Though this could run into the following week #BradfordBulls
  7. Whitehaven 'not contacted' about replacing Bradford in Championship Whitehaven, one of last season’s relegated sides, have not been approached about replacing Bradford in the Championship for 2017. The Bulls’ liquidation was confirmed on Tuesday, together with a statement from the RFL that said they would be keeping their spot open in the game’s second tier for a “new Bradford club.” This is reportedly due to the feeling that a replacement club would simply not be able to get up to speed in time for the new season, which is little over a month away. In its public statement on the Bradford news, the RFL said: "While a number of alternatives were considered the Board were most mindful of the planning already undertaken by all other clubs in the competition structure, the season tickets already purchased and the players and staff who will now be seeking employment in and around the sport in 2017. "Accordingly the Board has agreed that the wider interests of the sport is best satisfied if it offers a place in the Kingstone Press Championship to any new club in Bradford and that such a club start the 2017 season on minus twelve points.” It has prompted a mixed reaction amongst fans and media alike, with some saying that as a new club, the newco Bradford should be forced to start at the bottom of the professional game, as the newest club to the ranks, Toronto Wolfpack, have been. Sources at Whitehaven have confirmed to Love Rugby League that their club has had “no contact” from anyone regarding the situation or asked if they would be willing to step up at short notice. Discussions are ongoing with parties interested in forming a new Bradford club, and the feeling is that it is very unlikely that the new season will start without the Bradford name in the Championship. Based on last season, starting with a -12 handicap, Bradford would need to win 15 of their 30 games to avoid relegation to League 1. In 2016, the Bulls won 19 of 30 and their season, and ultimately the current era of the club, culminated with a Championship Shield Final victory over Sheffield.
  8. None of the cumbrian should go anywhere near the championship at present.
  9. Bradford will be offered a place in the Championship for 2017 if new owners can be found. The RFL has confirmed the Bulls' liquidation today and has stated that a spot in the Championship will be offered to any new club in Bradford, starting the season on minus 12 points.
  10. they are still hopeful of a new owner and they will not drop into C1 apparently
  11. The Bradford Bulls have gone into liquidation, according to reports. The Bulls have been liquidated after the administrator rejected the latest bid to buy the club. Sources have informed Love Rugby League today that the Championship club has gone into liquidation. The RFL has been approached for confirmation. Bradford have been in administration since November 15. It is the third time the club has gone into adminstration since 2012.
  12. true. But should they take the 2nd promotion place then what next? as it will be back to square one having to go down the travellers route to compete in the championship and as we all know it simply doesn't work and is not long term plan.
  13. depends on injuries. Squad isn't big so we really can't afford anything like last seasons especially to key players if we want top 6
  14. i dont know much about donnys squad (@12/1) but if the jampots can keep their squad fit and get some luck with injuries i think they will come 2nd behind toronto.
  15. i would guess not given the clubs new approach to the future and sensible spending
