After several promising performances, the Bulls’ Under-19 team recorded their first league victory at the weekend, overcoming London Broncos by 29 points to 16 away from home.
With seven further matches to come in the first phase of the Academy Championship, beginning with a fixture away to the Huddersfield Giants this weekend, there is plenty of time for the young squad really to hit their straps and make their mark before the second phase of fixtures begins.
To encourage the lads to even greater efforts, BullBuilder recently started a new scheme, open to members and non-members alike. We asked fans to pledge to make a donation to BullBuilder to the tune of 5p per point scored during the 12 matches of the first phase of Academy Championship matches by the Bulls’ Under-19 team! As a guideline, in the opening five matches (up to and including the game against London), the Bulls have scored a total of 81 points, and there are 7 more matches to go. To sweeten the deal, there will be a prize of 25% of the pot for the person whose guess is nearest the mark (if there is a tie, the prize money will be shared). So far, we have received estimates ranging from 138 to 225 points.
However, because the season is well under way, we will shortly have to call a halt to new estimates. You have until the end of March 2015 to register your guess and be eligible for the award. We will update the total on our website http://www.bullbuilder.co.uk/.
To register your involvement, please send your name and your guess for how many points will be scored in the 12 league games to email@example.com, or write to Bradford Rugby League Supporters Society Ltd, Suite 2 Buttershaw Works, Buttershaw Lane, Bradford, BD6 2DD.
All donations will, of course, be used to support junior rugby at the club!
