Bradford Bulls fans deserve more, says Leon Pryce

Catalan Dragons star Leon Pryce insists Bradford Bulls fans do not deserve to be in the Championship should the worst happen this season, as he gears up to face his hometown club for potentially the last time as a Dragon.

Pryce won every domestic honour in the game with the Bulls before leaving for St Helens in 2006, and he admits he is keen to see the club remain in the top flight, stating that too much hard work has been put into the club for them to drop out of Super League.

“As a Bradford lad, I know the community. It’s a working-class city where people want that bit of enjoyment at the weekend, like going to watch Bradford City and Bradford Bulls in Super League,” Pryce told the Telegraph and Argus.

“They deserve better than the Bulls being in the Championship because too many people have worked hard for the club over the past ten to 15 years for it to be in that position.

“Being a Bradford lad and a Bradford supporter, I want to see the Bulls in Super League. It’s going to be tough now, obviously, with the six points having been deducted and the players that they lost at the start of the season.

“It’s been hard on the lads and I feel for them and for the fans because it’s not where we belong.”
