Ex-Bradford Bulls boss Cummins confident of getting new job

Former Bradford Bulls head coach Francis Cummins admits he has to be confident he will quickly get another job in Rugby League, as the dust finally begins to settle on his departure from the club.

Cummins and his assistant Lee St Hilaire left the Bulls two weeks ago – and has since been replaced by Bulls legend James Lowes. However, he admits he was pleased that he stuck to his guns throughout his difficult tenure in charge, and is optimistic he will be back in the game soon.

“I’ve got to be confident I’ll get another job somewhere. I don’t know how long that will be and there are other pressures on me as a family man that I will have to bring some money in eventually,” Cummins told the Telegraph and Argus.

“I obviously have to work but it would have to be the right place and a club who shared the same ethics as me. If it did, I would look at it favourably. If there were some that didn’t, then I would have to be true to myself.

“That’s one of the positive things to come out of it – I didn’t change the way I was, I stuck to who I am. I know that’s the right way to go because you can’t pretend to be anybody else but yourself.”
