ROCHE IS PREPARED FOR LONDON BRONCOS BATTLE
UTILITY Forward, Colton Roche vows that the team are not shaken by their recent results and that they are ready to get back on track the horse, as they prepare for London.
Roche, sponsored by The Monroe Family, insists that the Bulls are up for the challenge that they face, as they host when London Broncos visit the Provident Stadium this Sunday (Kick off 3.00pm).
“We have had really tough training sessions since the last time out and all the boys have put in all of their efforts to try and right the wrongs,” insisted Roche.
“People have begun to put their hands up to control us around the pack. The more we train, the more we begin to build in confidence; things are only going to get better.”
Bradford return to the Provident Stadium for the first time since hosting Halifax RLFC under the lights on Good Friday night game. This That game saw Bradford fall to just their second league defeat at the Provident Stadium.
Roche and the rest of the team are determined to make Bradford the Provident Stadium one of the toughest grounds to visit in the league: “Scott Moore said, when he came in, that we should make this place a fortress and any team that comes here has to battle and really grind if they want to leave with the win.
“We are really looking forward to London,. I think that we can definitely get the win as long as we start very well, take it to them from the off and cut out the mistakes, which I reckon that we should be able to do.
“We love playing at home, the fans are a massive factor. We love playing at the stadium, with the size of the ground and the history that it has plays a big part.
“We know that London are a good team and we are looking forward to playing them,. They always make for a very challenging, quick and fast paced games. There is no monkey on the back of us,. This week we have all got our confidence up, so we are ready to go out there and perform now.”
The Bulls introduced three key signings to the squad last week that, which saw Jordan Lilley and Mikolaj Oledzki return to Bradford, as well as fellow Leeds Rhinos forward new face, Cameron Smith.
“Cameron looks really good out there,. He has got some really good hands but he also looks like a bit of a leader,. I’ve played with his brother Danny and he’s similar to him.
“He can control the ball really well around the field and it could be said that maybe that is something that we have been lacking,. I think that he will come in and do a great job.
“All of the hard training that we have been doing and with the new additions, we are ready to go out and show what we can do and finally get to that zero.
