Eagles to face Bradford in pre-season friendly
Sheffield Eagles will face Bradford Bulls at the Provident Stadium on Sunday 14th January as preparations for the Championship season step up a gear.
Mark Aston’s men will be put through their paces against a Bulls side who will ply their trade in League 1 next season.
The Eagles were beaten on two occasions against Bradford last season but did post a convincing 52-16 victory at the Beaumont Legal Stadium in May.
There could also be a few familiar faces going up against the Eagles at Odsal.
George Milton, Dane Chisholm, Elliot Minchella and Matt Garside have all donned the Red and Gold in the past and may line up against their former club.
With Aston looking to give his squad enough playing time before the season gets underway, new signings Shaun Pick, Oliver Davies and Iliess Macani will all be looking to make a good first impression in front of the travelling Eagles faithful.
Ticket prices will be announced in due course.
