Civic Reception held for the Bradford Bulls Ladies Rugby League Team

Bradford Bulls Ladies’ Squad made history this weekend by becoming the winners of the first Women’s Super League Grand Final.
The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Coun Abid Hussain, welcomed the team to City Hall on Tuesday 10 October for a Civic Reception to mark their all-conquering season.

The Ladies beat Featherstone Rovers 36 points to six in the Women’s Super League Grand Final at Manchester Regional Arena, last Saturday.

The Bulls completed a league and cup double after also beating Featherstone 50-16 in the Women’s Challenge Cup final in July, and went through the whole season unbeaten.

Coun Abid Hussain said: “Bradford has a long and proud tradition in rugby league. It is therefore fitting that the fantastic Bradford Bulls Ladies  team have become the winners of the first ever Women’s Super League Grand Final, writing a new chapter in our district’s sporting history.

“I hope their achievements will inspire others to take up this great sport.”

In addition, several of the Ladies have been selected to represent England Rugby League at the inaugural Women’s Rugby League World Cup.  We wish them all the very best of luck!
