BULLS are back in action on Saturday, March 13 - taking on fierce rivals Keighley Cougars as preparations for the 2021 campaign ramp up.

The match will be played behind closed doors due to current Covid restrictions - with a 2pm kick-off at the Tetley's Stadium in Dewsbury.

Both sides are returning to the field for the first time since last March.

New recruits such as Danny Brough, Aaron Murphy and Reece Hamlett will all be looking to feature for the first time in the red, amber and black - with the 2021 roster currently undergoing intense pre-season preparations as part of their Phase 2 Return to Training protocol.

Keighley will be looking to hand debuts to big name signings like Scott Murrell and Quentin Laulu-Togaga'e. They were only able to return to training for the first time last week.

The Bulls and Cougars clash will be streamed live on the RFL's OurLeague platform - with details regarding streaming and how you can get in on the action coming in the next few days.

The draw for the first and second round of the Challenge Cup takes place tomorrow evening, with Bradford and Keighley both in the hat.

Bulls will be ball number three, while Cougars will be number seven.
