FRANCIS CUMMINS is calling for calm ahead of this weekend’s visit of Huddersfield Giants.
The Bradford Bulls head coach believes his side became its own worst enemy, as Hull FC romped to victory last time out.
And so Cummins believes a more measured approached could bear fruit, insisting patience will prove key on Sunday.
“It is going to be another tough test for us, Huddersfield are showing glimpses of what they are capable of,” he said.
“We have overplayed in recent weeks, so we just need to be a little calmer really.
“When had three chances against Hull FC, last Friday, and we took two of them.
“On the third occasion, we panicked a little and came up short.
“Against the top teams, you have to be smarter, you have to hold things together.
“The Giants have dangerous players all over the park.
“They will attack us straight down the middle, but they have a lot of good play in them and their backline is pretty impressive.”
Luke George is likely to be back in action for the Bulls, after being named in Cummins’ 19-man squad for the First Utility Super League round-five clash.
The 26-year-old three-quarter was ruled out of Bradford’s defeat on Humberside with concussion, but is in-line to feature against his former club.
“We have some bumps and bruises but we should be ok for the weekend,” added Cummins.
“Almost everyone is in full training again and Luke is back in the mix, which is a massive boost for the team.”
