Lilley, sponsored In Memory of Brian Widdop, spoke of his delight on his return to the Bulls and returning to regular first team action ahead of Sunday’s game.
“It’s very good to be back. I’m really looking forward to getting game time and the mood is great at Bradford. It’s a really special place to be,” described Lilley.
“They’re all really good lads. They all make me feel very welcome down here and I’ve got some mates that I know I will have for life down here, so it’s good to be back and we’ve been training hard.”
The 20-year-old has played a vital part in the successes the Bulls have had this season, using his ability in the halves to control the flow of the game.
“I’m just going to do my best to get us to zero. I think the lads have been waiting for me and Mik in the camp to help them do that. I am going to do everything that I can do for the team. I’ll bring everything that I can do for the team and try to get us to zero, then begin to climb the ladder.”
Lilley has returned to the Bulls, alongside fellow Rhinos loanee Mikolaj Oledzki, as well Bradford’s latest recruit Cameron Smith.
“Cameron is outstanding. He’s two years below me and he’s six foot two and weighs 100kg, so he is a big lad like Mikolaj but he can play with the ball. It’s going to be exciting to play with him and have him show the Bulls fans what he can do.
“I don’t think that many people know how he plays and what he does but he is a really outstanding talent and I think that all four of us are going to contribute to each other, and hopefully, get some sync in what we are doing.”
“So I’m really looking forward to getting back out there and getting the ball in my hands, playing with the boys, and hopefully, we can get the two points on Sunday against tough opponents.”
“I love rugby, I want to develop my game and I want to play rugby. I don’t want to be sat on the side-lines, so if that is what I will be doing at Leeds at the minute, then I would rather come over to the Bulls and help them out as best as I can whenever it may be.”
