Bradford Bulls boss Cummins relishing tough run ahead

Bradford Bulls head coach Francis Cummins admits he is relishing the prospect of the upcoming tough run of fixtures, admitting it will hopefully bring the best out of his side.

The Bulls face Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors over Easter, before a cup tie against Catalan – and then Super League clashes against Warrington and St Helens. For a side who occupy bottom place in Super League, that looks a fearful run – but Cummins is looking forward to it.

“It is but that’s what you want to be honest. We want to be on top of our form and we know we’ve got to be as well.

“We have still got competition for places so let’s see where we go.

“I’m seeing good signs in the team. We probably had five lapses against Salford and got punished for them.

“We’ve  just got to overcome those errors and start throwing a few punches ourselves, although I don’t mean literally. We are looking quite good in training and we’ve just got to take out on the field.”
