The Meatworks Football Club were foundation members in 1949 of the West Kimberley Football Association, and over the ensuing four decades they rivalled Towns as the competition’s most successful club. In 1994 the Meatworks, from which the Bulls drew a large proportion of their players, closed down, and the club was renamed after perhaps the most redoubtable of the Meatworks’ regular ‘clients’. Immediately following the name change the club continued to enjoy regular success for several years, and by 2001 they had added another five premierships to the nine won under the Meatworks moniker. However, there then followed a prolonged premiership drought which was not broken until 2017. Opposed that year on grand final day by Derby Tigers the Bulls did just enough to edge the contest by a couple of points with scores of 10.6 (66) to 10.4 (64). Two years later the Bulls again reached the grand final, only to lower their colours on this occasion to Cable Beach.
