Details are still being finalised for The Bulldogs’ trip to face Toulouse Olympique in Saturday’s Betfred Championship Play-Off Semi Final. The game is scheduled to Kick-Off at 4.15 French Time, 3.15 in the UK.
Craig Lingard’s men booked their spot in the final with a nail-biting victory over Bradford Bulls at The Fox’s Biscuits Stadium. First Half tries from Ben Kaye and Tom Gilmore, both converted by the latter who also added 2 penalties, put the home side 16-0 up at the break.
The hosts then had to survive a second half onslaught from a huge Bulls side, attacking down the hill and spending the majority if the half inside the Bulldogs 40m line. The ‘Dogs showed incredible resilience and defence, with the line breached twice before Elliot Hall burst the Bradford line on halfway and powered his way through the defence for a brilliant finish in the corner. Tom Gilmore added an incredible touchline conversion under pressure, before adding a 1 pointer 2 minutes from time to cap a Man of the Match performance and seal the win.
