Francis Cummins only focused on Wakefield result

Bradford Bulls head coach Francis Cummins claims he is not worrying about potential scenarios from the result of this Sunday’s crunch clash against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, insisting they cannot become concerned with anything that happens beyond this week.

Cummins drew parallels with the Bulls’ Round Two victory against the Wildcats earlier this season, stating he told his troops the worst would not happen if they lost that clash, and seemed to insinuate the same message again for this weekend.

“It’s important, and it’s exciting to be in a game that’s so important. When we went to Wakefield last time and they’d just announced the points deduction, I told the players that they wouldn’t be relegated if they lost that game,” Cummins said.

“And we were ultimately very good that night; we stuck to what we were doing, and we have do that again, and stick to our processes.

“At the end of this game, the worst case scenario is we lose it – so we can’t be too concerned with outcomes and potential scenarios. When we’re at our best we’ve got to be confident we can win the game. If we keep people fit you’ll start to build rhythm, and that’s something we’ve missed.”
