POTTER IS COACH OF THE YEAR
2nd October 2012
At the Man of Steel Awards in Manchester last night, outgoing Bulls Coach Mick Potter picked up the Coach of the Year Award.
The Australian stayed on at Odsal in a voluntary capacity after being made redundant by the club's administrators in July and would have taken the Bulls to the play-offs for the first time in four years had the club not been docked six points for breaching the Rugby Football League's solvency regulations.
Potter, who has returned home to Australia to seek a new job after turning down the offer of a new contract from the new Bradford club, was chosen by a secret ballot of the other 13 Super League coaches.
Meanwhile Bulls Back Row Forwards John Bateman missed out on the Young Player of the Year Award to Leeds Full Back Zak Hardaker.
Retiring Half Back Ben Jeffries received a long service award for his contribution to the British game. Jeffries completed ten years in England but has now decided to return to Australia and take a job outside the game.
