Bradford Bulls vs Halifax
The Bradford Bulls take on Halifax RLFC in the final match of the first day of the 2019 Summer Bash and the great news for fans is that you can watch this match and every game from the Summer Bash live online via our Championship live streaming partners.
These 2 West Yorkshire rivals meet on the Lancashire coast in a match that is much more important than local bragging rights as both teams need the point sin the race for the paly-offs and also both will be looking to put a marker down ahead of their upcoming cup quarter-final.
Bradford start the round in 6th place but they are just 2 points behind York in 3rd whilst Halifax start in 8th where they are just 2 points behind the Bulls. Bradford will also be looking to build on their fantastic cup win over Leeds last time out.
Bradford have won 4 of their last 5 matches with that only loss coming in Canada whilst they will be boosted by defeating Leeds last time out.
Halifax also won in the cup last weekend and they have 3 of their last 5 in the league including both of their last 2 outings.
These 2 West Yorkshire rivals have been impressing in both the league and cup recently but this could be their most important game of the season as both look to keep pace with the play-off race.
With things so close between them throughout the season, we expect this to be a close battle throughout and in a game such as that, the confidence the Bulls will have taken from Leeds will prove a huge difference and so long as they didn’t over-stretch themselves in that game, we are going to back the Bull for a narrow win.
