Bradford Bulls A Small Blip

Fortnightly Super League news from Odsal

Mixed fortunes again for the Bradford Bulls this fortnight, kicking off with a desperate performance at Murrayfield. The magic weekend has never been a happy hunting ground for the Bulls with only one win ever coming from the fixture – that being last year’s outing against Wakefield.

Alas there was to be no repeat of that as the Crusaders thrashed a sorry looking Bradford outfit 19-0. In the first five minutes that certainly didn’t look to be the case, but suddenly after the clock was stopped following an injury, the Bulls became disappointingly disinterested, never really threatening to get into the contest.

Hopefully this will be a blip after an otherwise promising run over the past month and a half.

The next week’s scoreline of 58-16 against Championship side Leigh in the cup would suggest so, but in a cup competition with teams in different divisions it is extremely hard to tell. The ease at which Leigh seemed to score their three tries at times seemed to suggest McNamara has some more defensive work to do before the next Super League fixtures against Wakefield and Leeds to hopefully regain some form.
