If the Bulls had someone better lined up though that wouldn't be the end of the world would it?
One way for the Bulls to go is to promote themselves as a young exciting glamourous team. They could say - look, it will be a while before we are in 5 consecutive Grand Finals but we continue to produce some excellent local talent and will add to them entertainers and people with charisma. Orford isn't that - a young Benji type could be. I have watched plenty of rubbish london sides but they have had some entertaining players who have made the experience bearable. Orford is a crafty player and experienced, but he isn't going to win that many games if the rest of the squad stays at its current level.
Find some razzle dazzle NRLers, promote youth and manage expectations and a new day could dawn.
Its a vicious circle, I doubt any top pedigree NRL players would be attracted to a Club like Bradford unless they get paid double what they get in Australia.
As the salary cap increases in Oz the player drain will turn into a trickle.
Bradford look like they are spiraling into oblivion.
In Rugby League, if you are standing still, you're going backwards fast.
Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.
