Bradford Bulls have “different bounce”, says Lowes

Bradford Bulls head coach James Lowes said his side have a “different bounce” to them in recent weeks, after they picked up their third consecutive Super League win with victory against Hull FC.

Trailing 12-0 inside the first quarter, the Bulls scored five consecutive tries either side of the break to romp into a league they ultimately would not surrender, as they practically ended FC’s hopes of the play-offs on a wet and windy afternoon at Odsal.

And Lowes admitted the confidence is now seeping through the team after several wins, praising his team for never giving up throughout.

“They’re working extremely hard at training and that’s replicated on the field and they don’t give up,” Lowes said.

“There’s a different bounce about them now to when I first came in.That’s a lot to do with confidence and winning.

“It’s what they do at training. When you work extremely hard there you tend ot get a bit of a feel for playing. You work hard for each other and the guys who are leaving the guys who are staying they’re all the same.

“They want to leave on a good note and lads staying working extremely hard to get the jump on the new boys coming in.”
