Other teams are nervous, says Francis Cummins

Bradford Bulls head coach Francis Cummins believes the rest of the teams at the bottom of Super League are sweating over the rest of the season, and admits the club are playing without pressure due to their situation.

The Bulls are eight points from safety following on from their heavy defeat to Huddersfield Giants at Magic Weekend, but Cummins is adamant the pressure is now on the teams who have spent plenty but are failing to get results.

“There are a few clubs there that have spent a lot of money and it isn’t happening for them at the moment. We’re going to get some wins, and you never know if everything drops in our favour. There could be some clubs that are in a tough position if we start winning games – which we will,” Cummins said.

“There are ups and downs all the time, and there’s the points deduction situation in the mix, too. But there’s a few nervous clubs down there, you can see that. That’s good, because we can get some pressure on other people for a change.

“We just have to keep improving and make sure we play our best, because if we do then we’ll win some games.”
