CARO DELIGHTED TO GET THE SEASON UNDERWAY

09 Feb 2016

HAT-TRICK hero, Omari Caro helped Bradford Bulls get off to the perfect start in the new season with a 22-12 win at the weekend.

The Jamaican winger scored two tries in the first half and one in the second, as the Bulls beat Featherstone Rovers in their first game of the 2016 Kingstone Press Championship on Sunday.

After featuring in both pre-season friendlies against Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers, Caro was thrilled to finally get the new season up and running. 

“It was amazing to get the 2016 season underway,” said Caro, who is sponsored by Jennifer Bennison.

“It has been a long pre-season and we’ve been waiting months to finally get back playing, so it felt really good to start the season, especially in front of our fans.

“I think we were a bit nervous on Sunday, as we wanted to put in a good performance and get the first game out the way.

“As we progress through the campaign you’ll soon see our style of play come along. 

“We’ve got a few players to come back from injury and they will create more competition for places, which will be great for our team cohesion as we move forward in the year.”

MATHERS PLEASED WITH DEBUT PERFORMANCE

08 Feb 2016

NEW signing Richie Mathers made a strong start to his Bradford Bulls career after making his debut in the 22-12 win over Featherstone Rovers on Sunday.

The two-time Challenge Cup winner started at full-back in the Bulls’ opening game of the 2016 Kingstone Press Championship.

Mathers displayed his vast experience during the victory as he orchestrated the defence into try saving positions to deny Featherstone. 

“I was excited to get out there and it felt really good to be playing again.

“It was great to play with the lads, as well as to play in front of the Bulls fans, who were fantastic throughout the game.

“Obviously, there’s a few areas to improve at this stage, but I thought we played really well, especially in the second half, where we got some line speed.

“There are a lot of clever players in the team; Lee Gaskell, Danny Addy, Adam O’Brien, to name a few, and it’s about learning the combinations with them at the moment.

“Everybody is striving to get this club back into the Super League and there’s a lot of talent in this team to get us there. So, if I can add the missing 1%, then I’ll be more than happy.”

LOWES PRAISES HAT-TRICK HERO CARO

07 Feb 2016

BRADFORD Bulls Head Coach, James Lowes was full of praise for Sunday’s hat-trick hero, Omari Caro.

Caro, who is sponsored by Jennifer Bennison, scored three tries as the Bulls beat Featherstone Rovers 22-12 in round one of the 2016 Kingstone Press Championship.

Lowes picked five debutants in the 17-man squad and was particularly impressed with Caro, who joined the club towards the end of 2015.

“We bought Caro for his finishing; his ability to put the ball down in tight positions,” said Lowes, who is sponsored by In Memory of Joyce Dobby.

“We brought him in at the end of last year to do exactly what he did on Sunday. He can finish really well and that is one of his main strengths.

“He’s got some other things to work on, but he certainly knows how to put the ball down.

“I’m pleased with all the boys, as well. They all showed what they are capable of.

“It is very pleasing to start the season with a win and it’s good to be playing rugby again.

“It is always nice to get your first win, but like I said last year after the opening game, this win won’t define what will happen for the rest of the year.

“We need to try and build consistency in our performances and we can do that off the back of a winning start.”
