The assumption is that he told her that she was buying a rugby league club called Bradford Bulls.

My mind keeps coming back to how that would play out in our house, I think if I did that, my good lady would have bought a Union club to put me back in my place!

so the doctor will have 2 teams to slate on twitter..............if he really cares so much about the game then why doesn't he help folly lane juniors? they are appealing for 11000 ponds to pay their ground rent!!! and the are linked to salford red devils as well.

I can't see Nigel Wood allowing Mandy Koukash to take on the Bulls after what he said in his article in this month's RLW mag.

 

Just read this interview, and I don't know where you got that idea from - he has a go at the doc shooting his mouth off without thinking sometimes but that's about it. Quite a leap to suggest that IMO, unless I missed something major.

 

Maybe for another topic, but the interview with Nigel Wood really is worth reading on it's own merits. Some interesting viewpoints.

VW makes a good point - if the Bulls hadn't introduced mandatory spelling tests on the gate, maybe the crowds wouldn't have dropped so much.

I thought Mr Koukash was looking to buy a load of high profile union players himself for Salford to get one over on RU...buying a whole club would really rub their noses in it. Perhaps he could buy Sale RU.

That's a genius idea.

 

Has anybody told him?

Was it? I really did think you meant ponds.

Good job he didn't spot your use of the word genius rather than ingenious then.

Nice of you to see smaller picture. ;)

Wasn't it Nigel Wood who got Koukash interested in taking over a League club in the first place

Its just another way around the salary cap, double if you will, Bradford Bulls announce the signings for example of of George North, Kyle Eastmond & Josh Charnley on their salary cap.

 

Bradford immediately loan them out to the devils.

Did anyone watch the brief interview with Mrs Koukash on Look North last night? She couldn't even remember the name of the club that she so passionately wants to buy and struggled to remember the sport that she so loves.

 

This is so obviously a takeover by the good doctor which must contravene RFL regulations, surely?

Their joint interview on SSN was cringeworthy to say the least. She clearly hasn't got the foggiest about any of it.....

A new twist has emerged in the race to take control of the Bradford Bulls, with Mandy Koukash suggesting on social media that she has failed in her bid to assume control of the club.
