Go through the last few weeks worth of game threads and find me once saying the referee was to blame for the loss.

I'm sorry but coming across to the people listening to me, they want to know who the referee is, where he's from and what he gives out there on the field.

Must feel even longer to you than it does to me because i thought we beat KR 50-4 (ah fading memories!).

Can see a real thumping here for the Bulls. But then I could at half time at Odsal when they played Wigan.

So here's hoping for a change of fortune for them.

That's the point i was making (although not very well i admit). It has been that long since we performed anywhere near as well as that day, that on first trying to remember back to that game my initial thought was that we had won by even more - i should have known then that it would never last but i actually remember thinking at the time, last season (2009) might just have been a blip!

Strangely, considering how poorly we've played recently, we've not really had a proper tubbing in this long run of defeats. I suppose it would be fair to say we're due for one, but on the other hand, playing badly and losing by just a few points makes you think it wouldn't take too much to have a win or three.

As a regular, home and away, I've seen all the recent horrors so I have to confess I can hardly believe I'm writing this, but the logic is undeniable, even if the evidence is a bit thin and, on current form, looking a bit far fetched and possibly coloured by desperation. Bad runs often end where you least expect it though, so unless we're saving it up for Knowsley Rd, Craven Park would be as good a place as anywhere.

Bradford 6-52 Huddersfield is as bad as they come mate ohmy.gif

I really do expect us to get the win on Saturday, so if you see a nutter jumping up and down in the Roger Millward stand gantary at full time, that'll be me. cool.gif

I can't really see a Bulls win, we have lost the games when we should, or had a good chance of winning. It would be worthwhile if we could put in some good tackling and a tighter defence, and maybe, just maybe, we could beat the Catalans the following week.
I hate sounding so defeatist, but having seen my hopes dashed so many times, this game looks like another defeat.

Acting Head Coach Lee St Hilaire has named his 19 man squad for Saturday's trip to Hull KR

With Paul Sykes suspended and Matt Orford, Nick Scruton and James Donaldson still unavailable, St Hilaire has named the same squad as for last week's game against Salford.

Dave Halley, who was omitted last week because of a family bereavement, will come into consideration for this week's game.

The squad is:

Addy, Halley, L'Estrange, Hall, Lynch, Sheriffe, Crossley, Finigan, Kopczak, Olbison, Menzies, Reardon, Godwin, Nero, Kearney, Whitehead, Worrincy, Langley, Platt.

Again no Southernwood.

Can't see Bradford beating this KR side at the moment, they looked good in defeat to an inspired FC performance last weekend, so unless that has knocked their confidence in what they're doing, I think that good form should continue and the Bulls will be beaten by 24.

Even thoguh I think Hull KR will win, this is the kind of general expectation where upsets occur. So if the Bulls win, I wouldn't be surprised with Super League the way it is this year. No-one gave Salford a hope at home to St Helens, etc.

Well, ok I'd forgotten that one!! But it is a fairly isolated result and most of the others were much closer.

We beat rovers by 40- 4 not that long ago (though it seems an eternity) so it shouldn't be a great shock if we win on Saturday. Mental attitude will play a big part, maybe a bit of luck early in the piece will send us on our way, Rovers haven't been the most consistent team in SL either, so it's all to play for.
