Description

"100 Years of the Bulls" is a must-buy book for any fan of Bradford Bulls or rugby league. Packed with pictures, it is a vivid account of the triumphs and heartache of this fantastic club - and its forerunner Bradford Northern - from 1907 to the present day.It provides a definitive history of the club and the personalities and players that have helped to shape it over the years.Working with the Bradford Bulls Foundation, we have trawled through the club's archive and the library of the "Telegraph & Argus" to source hundreds of fantastic and revealing photographs, many unpublished for decades.The book charts the fortunes of the club from their first home at Horton Cricket Club, through near-disaster, to the summit of Super League and the World Club Championship.The reader is introduced to legends of the game such as leaping Eric Batten, pictured soaring above the heads of would-be tacklers in trademark fashion, and Trevor Foster MBE, who came to the club in 1938, scored tries in two winning cup finals, played for Wales and the Lions, coached the side, was a director and even official time keeper up to his death in 2005.Then there are the giants of the modern game, Ellery Hanley, Henry Paul and Lesley Vainikolo to name but three. Moments from history, great and small, are brought vividly to life, including the defeat of mighty Australia in 1933, Paul Anderson's hand-off on Garry Connolly and 'The Hot-Stepper' Robbie Paul's hat-trick of tries in a Challenge Cup final.With its facts, names and dates and profiles, this book is an argument settler, a debate starter and a joy to read for all fans of Rugby League, sport itself, and anyone interested in the wider history of the city of Bradford.
