It's going to have to be a hell of a statement from the RFL to stop the Bulls from playing at Dewsbury. The fact that AC didn't sign the lease for Odsal past 2019 when he took on the club shows that this scenario has been coming, and the RFL have been aware of it, for a number of years.

Although, forward planning isn't the RLFs forte really.

I think that's off the back of the RFL saying to Chalmers "What are you going to do? Leave Odsal :lol: . What do you mean 'yes'??? :shock: "

i think we fans will still blindly follow .. (as the fat dogs sing) where ever we will follow ... 5k with an expandable 8k (according to Mick G) we might have many all ticket games

Dewsbury's last home game was 1229.
So an increase of 1056, say Bulls took a thousand for an away game you would expect it to be around 3000 for home games at Dewsbury.

Landlords fall to their tenants in today's game. Another good trip to Dewsbury. I always enjoy visiting the Tetley's Stadium. The supporters are great and the atmosphere and banter was in full flow. They have a fantastic little ground with some wonderful heritage items on show in the bar under the terracing. They have the 3G facilities around the back of the ground, a roof over the main stands and a scoreboard that works! It's not all bad.

Whilst speaking with some Bradford and Dewsbury fans today, some interesting ideas were raised about our upcoming ground share. It was suggested that during the warmer summer months that the games could be a staged as a double header e.g. Bradford vs Halifax followed by Dewsbury vs Batley. I'm sure with the right amount of promotion and buy in from the fans we could turn that into a sell out fixture!

Another idea was to offer Rams & Bulls fans discounted entry into each others fixtures e.g. If Bradford are away in Toulouse and Dewsbury have a home fixture the same weekend any Bulls season ticket holders can watch the game at the Tetley's Stadium for £5.
