Looking forward to this. It will be interesting to see if the Wigan game took anything out of the Wire players, or whether Smith decides its worth a big push for the top spot and keeps the pedal pressed down firmly. Either way, we should have enough in the tank to win at Odsal, although in my last two trips there the Bulls have demonstrated a fantastic team spirit.

 

Anyway, it should be a dry day according to the BBC, which I think suits us. I just hope I don't end up sat in front of that blooming Bradford drummer again this year. My ears are still ringing.

Just been looking at the SL head-to-head at Bradford. Bulls lead 14-7 but we've won the last five.

Wolves red hot favourites for this one. Never say never though.

Will be my first visit to Odsal on Sunday. Anything to see/avoid and how would I get from Bradford Interchange to the ground by bus?

From the Interchange via Arriva ... number 268 Bus

From the Interchange via Metro Bus ... number 363 Bus

No problems getting to the stadium, which is only 200 yards from the Odsal Top bus stop. Allow half an hour from catching the bus at  the Interchange to getting actually into the ground. You will have to pay cash at a turnstile.

 

Plenty of refreshment and food stalls in the stadium. However, only electric beer in plastic glasses. If it's chucking it down, or you arrive in Bradford early and have time on your hands, I would say the pubs in the city centre are better than the ones in Wibsey and the area around the stadium.

 

The last time I went into the pub right next to the Interchange, the Queen, it wasn't that good. However, you can get a reasonable and cheap dinner and really good beer in either of the City Vaults and the Golden Goose ... both within 300 yards of the Interchange. The Interchange faces City Hall, which is a really impressive building and worth a look. On the opposite face of City Hall is Millennium Square which has a fountain display pond, a Nandos, a Chinese restaurant and a Wetherspoons pub. The other side of the fountain are the Alhambra theatre, a beautiful building, and the National Media Museum, plus several decent curry houses.

 

Best view and fun is on the open terrace down the western side of the pitch. We have a group of chanting teenagers who can be annoying or fun, depending on your attitude. Personally, I really like them. There is never any trouble, always a good atmosphere.

 

Take note of the weather.

 - If you want to sit in the stand, take some sunglasses as the sun shines in that direction. You have to pay separately to get into the stand after entering the ground. Try to sit near the front as the stand has steel pillars.

 - If out on the terrace, take a coat and hat in wet weather.

 

The club shop sells a range of logo-ed clothing (not just rugby kit) and gifts.

The Chapel House just down and off Cleckheaton Road from Odsal is a nice and out of the way boozer, about 10 min walk from Odsal. Turn left where you see a graveyard and it's opposite the church. Does food etc.

Packed on a Sunday and electric beer (disguised to look like it's being hand-pulled). Long wayto walk  from the Odsal Top bus stop.

Well they are a small club, but I'd expect them to bring more than that.

 Not a moment too soon as rumours of the messiah returning are all over the T&A.
