Bradford coach Jimmy Lowes thinks he could have done more to help the Bulls avoid relegation last season.
The 45-year-old took control of the Odsal side in June and lost his first four games in charge.
Despite four wins in the next six – including scalps of Wigan and Leeds – it was too little too late and Lowes takes responsibility.
“When I came in, we were still in a position where we could have possibly stayed up,” he told the T&A.
“I just feel I didn’t do enough early on to get them there. We lost points from that.
“But we are in that position now. We’ve made a clean sweep, we’ve got something like 14 new players in and a couple of unknown ones from Australia.
“It’s a clean slate for everyone at the club.”
