Promotion would top Bulls’ glory days in Super League, says Green

Bradford Bulls chairman Marc Green believes that winning promotion in Saturday’s Million Pound Game would eclipse anything the club achieved during their glory days a decade ago.

The Bulls stand within 80 minutes of a return to Super League if they can beat Wakefield and take the final spot in next year’s top tier at their expense.

And despite winning numerous Super League and Challenge Cup titles during their heyday, Green says that this weekend could be their biggest achievement of the lot.

“I actually think winning promotion would be the club’s biggest achievement for the past 20 to 30 years, not just the last 10,” he told the Telegraph and Argus.

“That’s no disrespect to previous chairmen and players but I say this because if you continually win trophies, it becomes a habit.

“You will find that when clubs do their open-bus parades, after a few years less people turn up.

“When Chelsea won the Premier League title this year, far less people turned up than when they won it after a 50-year gap in 2005.”
