Odsal undergoes pitch changes

When the West Yorkshire side moved back home, they had to apply to the Rugby Football League – who owns the venue – to play games back there due to the pitch being too narrow to meet the governing body’s minimum pitch requirements.

The RFL granted the Bulls special dispensation despite the pitch only measuring 51 metres wide – the minimum threshold is 55.

But, work has been completed and Odsal now measures 89 metres by 56 metres, with the stock car racing track still there on the outside.

Bradford  had returned home in May following a period of groundsharing with local rivals Dewsbury Rams.

The Bulls are currently vying for a play-off position in order to reach Super League after a long spell outside of the top flight.

However, John Kear’s men will still likely need to overcome both Featherstone and Toulouse at the top of the table to have any chance of earning promotion.
