Bradford Bulls confirm that the Halifax friendly will not go ahead

Yesterday, Bradford announced that they were in discussions with Halifax over rearranging their festive friendly after it was cancelled on Boxing Day.

The fixture was set to take place at lunch time the day after Christmas but was put into jeopardy due to snow and rain the night before.

Initially, after a first pitch inspection, the club stated that the game was still set to take place before a second pitch inspection spelt the end of the fixture with the club deciding to cancel the game with the field deemed unplayable.

The two clubs then entered into discussions about rearranging the game but have now confirmed the game will not go ahead.

Both clubs have since posted refund information on their social media channels.

Now that the fixture has been cancelled completely, the Bulls’ first pre-season friendly will be the visit of Batley on 9th January before they take on Hull FC in Danny Brough’s testimonial before they meet old foes Leeds at Odsal.

Meanwhile, Halifax can look forward to a battle with Super League’s Salford Red Devils who beckon a new era with Marc Sneyd, Brodie Croft and Ryan Brierley joining Paul Rowley in the Red Devil revolution.

Bradford and Halifax will meet in the Championship on April 15th at Odsal in an Easter derby no doubt catching the eye that Good Friday.
