Aww, get in! It will be ace to see super-Glenn back at Odsal. Woo!

I've got a lot of time for Glenn Morrison. He's the sort of all action, 100% player with plenty of skill that any fan, of any club, would be delighted to have in their team. I'm sure he'll get a good reception from the Odsal faithful.

2 teams who have forgotten how to win.
However, as likely as a draw sounds, I think Bradford will somehow forget to lose this week, and end Wakey's play-off hopes.
The players meeting the last remaining fans after the game is a nice touch, it'll be a cheap round anyway.... wink.gif

So the Bulls finally get that elusive win. Too little, too late, though in truth. Hope it lifts the gloom for our resident Bulls fans. smile.gif

Two poor teams and a poor ref, but it was an enjoyable game to watch.

I'm still at Odsal in the Marquee drinking at happy hour prices and all the talk is about my commentary today which is making me rather emotional.

What's made today really great is after the game I met the visually impaired and disabled supporters who had taken in my commentary who all had encouraging words of praise.

One of these supporters was blind and he said that because of my commentary he would defiantly be renewing his season pass next season.

Because now that there is my commentary he said his daughter doesn't have to spend all game constantly telling him where the ball and action is.

Unbeknown to me Peter Hood and Ryan Ducket spent five minutes listening in and said that it was fantastic and well worth the 2000 spend on the equipment.

Things couldn't be better for the club at the minute with the 60 season tickets and the great performance out there on the field today.

Just how good was Danny Addy out there in defence and attack.

The gap he made after breaking the Wakefield tackle to pass on the inside to Steve Menzies for are final try was the stuff of fairytales.

Amazing try and if it doesn't get try of the week in League Express then I don't know what will.

Tell you what though, the Odsal core are top class. Every week, despite what's been on offer, the team come onto the pitch to a standing ovation. The Chairman comes onto the pitch, and given the period that he has presided over, was given a fair hearing and went off to cheers and applause. It's hard to think of many other clubs whose fans have been so understanding. I mean, Saints fans were booing at the first home game of the season, and Rhinos fans were booing early season also.

I felt really proud of our lot this afternoon. We've got plenty to be optimistic about.

Oh, and I spied 'Tommy the Cat' today... biggrin.gif

Addy, Platt, and Kopczak (who IMO should be rewarded with a contract extension after the last few games, he's really upped his work effort) made some good yards for us today along with the usual gut busting efforts from Lynch, Langley and Scruton.

Kearney's kick behind the Wakefield line for Whitehead to touch-down was sublime with pin-point accuracy. It was great to see the move unfold in front of me before it did.

I thought Godwin took his tries well, especially his second just on the hooter, showing a nice little scoop from dummy half to crash over the line taking three Wakefield players with him.

But the best try of the game for mine was the Addy break and the outside pass to Menzies to score our/his last try at Odsal this season.

It couldn't have been scripted better could it.

If Worrincy could play all next season like he did today then I would extend his contract by a year, because I thought he really stood up today to the terrace abusive chanters.

He made a number of key crucial tackles early on and very nearly went over in the second half for his third try of the season (well did go over the line, he just couldn't get the ball down).

I thought Sam Obst was Wakefield's best player who caused us no end of trouble close to the line with that dinky run of his and astute kicking game.

Jeffries and Morrison also had fair games, putting some good runs and passes together.

Yes it was scrappy at times with a period in both halfs when Wakefield would knock-on and then just seconds later from the scrum/play the ball, we would do likeiwse and vice versa, so come full time it was just so relieving to stop the bus at 12 and leave the ground with a win.

I had a gander at the Marquee once I had packed everything away, and saw Peter Hood and the players all integrating with the supporters which was great to see.

It really does feel as if the board are going full tilt at turning this ship around by maing her head in the right direction to a top four finish in 2011.

COME ON YOU BULLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
