Bradford Bulls star Omari Caro expects his side’s clash with the Leigh Centurions to showcase the quality of the Championship.
The competition’s two most high-profile sides lock horns in the final match of Saturday’s Summer Bash as they re-engage in a heated rivalry that has existed since Bradford’s relegation to the Championship.
In their four previous meetings, the two teams have drawn twice and produced several heated incidents, with many expecting more of the same in Blackpool.
And the Bulls flier is expecting another tight contest.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Caro said.
“There’s no denying they’re a good team. In the couple of times I’ve played against them I think we have drawn both games, and there are always been a few heated moments. But on the rugby side of things it should be a great game and fingers crossed the weather is good for us and we can put on a decent game.
“We should set the standard for where the Championship is going. In terms of the standard of the Championship we should be showing what it’s all about.
“We haven’t performed as well as we would have liked to this year, so we want to get the win. This could really kickstart our season again.”
The game also presents Caro an opportunity to play at Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road for the first time.
“I’ve never played down there before, but I’ve heard good things about it,” he said.
“In terms of the Championship it is a good way for us to promote the game outside of Super League. It’s a big weekend for all of the teams at the weekend and create a bit of a buzz.”
