The EnviroNZ suffered two significant loses on their southern road trip making a play-off run a tough ask, heading into the final quarter of the season.
This week the Bulls return home to prepare for a tough Thursday night battle against the Rams, a team that stole a win from the Bulls the last time they met at Cowles Stadium in Christchurch, earlier this season.
The boys will need to dig deep and are calling on fans to show up and show their support to the team that has made history, in more ways than one.
"The first ever home season has had so many firsts, including season ending injuries, a starting line up unavailable for two games and yet still managing to overcome and grab wins against the top of the table Sharks and winning the Battle of the North #4 last week. We are so proud of how the team are pulling together. We know that they are all working to dig deep to find form and we know they've got more to give." Says GM Scott Kelso
"Coaching staff and players have had to deal with a lot. This hasn't been the dream first season we'd hoped for but, but it's not over and we know that the team will want to finish strong and make a statement as we look forward to the end of what really has been an historic season. I couldn't be more proud of each and every member of our team!"
"We need our people to show up, now more than ever. We are calling all Franklin Bulls fans to come show their support and make this return home, a special one! "
Tip-Off is at 7.30PM, This Thursday, 24th of June.
