ADAM HENRY is refusing to rest on his laurels ahead of Sunday’s trip to Hull Kingston Rovers (kick-off 3.00pm).

The in-form Bradford Bulls three-quarter bagged a pair of touchdowns last time out, making him the club’s top try scorer alongside Adrian Purtell.

But the New Zealander, who arrived on a two-year deal late last year following stints with Sydney Roosters and Newtown Jets, is seeking further improvement this weekend.

“I have been happy with the way I have started here, but I want to keep on improving,” said the 23-year-old centre.

“I have been working hard to develop my defence.

“And I feel I am getting better in that area, while managing to grab myself a few tries.

“But, first and foremost, it is about the team winning and that is something we need to get back to this weekend.

“Partnerships have been hard to come by out wide, given the fact that the line-up has had to be reshuffled a fair bit in recent weeks.

“Having said that, I feel I am combining well with Luke Gale. We have a good understanding of each other’s game, which works well for us in attack.

“At first the English game came as something of a shock to the system. I required a fair bit of game time to become accustomed to it.

“But I am getting up to speed with it now and my fitness levels are constantly improving. My body is adapting to Super League action.”

Victory on Sunday will see head coach Francis Cummins’ men back onto zero points – on the league ladder.

And with front-rower Anthony Mullally, who agreed a season-long loan with the Bulls yesterday, and Matty Blythe both in-line to return to action, Henry says he and his Bradford colleagues are full of confidence.

“We are working really hard in training,” added Henry, who being proudly sponsored by The Pitchside Crew for the 2014 campaign.

“Everyone is optimistic about getting back to where we started, on zero, this weekend.

“If our attitude is right then we will achieve our goal. That is the main thing.

“We were missing some key personnel last weekend, which made the Huddersfield game an even greater task.

“We have missed Matty, he hasn’t even featured yet this year, and Anthony is bound to make a huge impact for us.

“With a couple of big boosts on board for the Hull KR game, we have reason to believe that we can come away with the spoils.”
