Difficult to gauge anything with that pitch , in truth the Bulls with a better bounce and a better ref could have won that , but that's probably because of the restrictive nature of the pitch

LOL fair play.. Feel free to come back on here and question our entire team before the summer bash 😉

Just thinking there should (and I say should) be two more games before the bash, the 1895 final - 28th May and the return league game at the LSV on the 13th June, it would be mouthwatering for all the neutrals (and Leigh fans) if the bash was what should be the decider of where the Championship GF final is to be played.

The season is 1/3 gone, there's 18 games to go and Bradford are 2 points off the play-off places. Relax.

Or looking at it another way, they've played 5 of their 9 games at home and are closer to the bottom of the table than the top. Huge game at Whitehaven on Sunday.

Apart from missing a few 'forrards' I think the ref was quite good. Better than the high profile Whistler at the LSV yesterday.

Last full season you need 17 wins to make playoffs with only ten defeats. We still have to play leigh and fev again so thats 7 defeats.  That Haven game is massive.  

I guess fact that the rest of pack Eagles Fax Widnes Newcastle cant string it together either keeps us in but got to be beating Haven to stay in the Hunt.

Yes he did miss a ' couple ' 😉 , and one or two other pivotal 50/50s , but like I said , the pitch is the issue

The pleasing thing for me is playing on a postage stamp set up for a bulls big pack and a forwards slugfest non of our tries were crash bang wallop

Widnes or Fev?

Over the years I've supported Fev I've seen Widnes score more 40's 50's and 60's against more then any other team so it would be nice to just beat them again.

Thought Fev were pretty ordinary in the first half. Tried to throw the ball around where the was no space, and as a consequence put the ball to the ground at least 10 times. 

Second half we were much more direct, which gave us more space. Some of that could have been Bradford tiring.

That type of pitch doesn't play to our strengths,  but a win is a win.

No , but you were much better at the crash bang wallop through the middle , particularly Bussey , helped by the odd forward and some indifferent control by the ref , but it's what works on that pitch , we struggled in the cup , only taking the lead in the last 5 minutes , we still have to go back there in the league , I'd expect us to apply similar tactics that you did tonight , quick fast PTBs , and driving back in defence

That's true G but I wasn't talking about the game in general just pleased we scored tries that didn't resort to forwards sticking it up their jumper and going crash bang wallop over the line

Widnes next for Fev. Bet they're trembling in their boots.....

Looking on the forum they use - Widnes have already cancelled their supporters coaches due to “lack of interest”

With some of the holes in the Bulls line you didn't need to 😉
