Bradford Bulls are at ‘rock bottom’, says Walker

Bradford Bulls star Chev Walker admits the club are at ‘rock bottom’, as they look to round off a difficult week by beating Hull KR and keeping their slim relegation hopes alive. The Bulls are eight points from safety in Super League, and with time running out, the club chose to part company with boss Francis Cummins earlier this week.

And with captain Matt Diskin in caretaker charge of the club ahead of that clash, Walker has admitted the club are at a real low point – but issued a rallying cry too, saying they will not roll over and die without a fight.

“Sadly we are used to things going against us but we’re not rolling over and calling it quits,” Walker said. “Obviously confidence is shot at the minute.

“Disko has put his hand up and his first day as coach was good. We had a good session and he delivered his messages and his game plan over to us really well.

“Credit to Disko for doing that. Obviously Lee and Franny were a big part of our group and held us together for so long so it’s sad, but as a group we owe it to them and to ourselves to try and get some performances. Our backs are completely against the wall now, we are at rock bottom, so we definitely need to come out fighting.”
