McDERMOTT: 'BRADFORD WILL SOON CHALLENGE AGAIN'

28 May 2015

FORMER Bradford star Brian McDermott believes the Bulls will soon be competing at the sport’s summit once again.

James Lowes’ side recorded a 12th-successive Kingstone Press Championship victory over the weekend and are just two points behind league-leaders Leigh Centurions.

McDermott, who spent nine seasons at The Provident Stadium, was a Super League, Challenge Cup and World Club Challenge winner with the Bulls.

He turned to coaching back in 2006 with Harlequins RL and has since gone on to achieve greatness with local rivals Leeds.

The ex-Great Britain international is backing the Bulls to “overcome obstacles” in 2015 and begin a rise back to the top.

“I have confidence they will once again challenge to be a top four side again,” said McDermott, who retired as a Bradford player back in 2003 – following yet another Grand Final success.

“I think it is fair to say no-one was in any doubt that, with a period of stability, Bradford will begin to realise their potential.

“Between now and then there are a few more obstacles to overcome and in James Lowes they are in great hands to be able to meet those challenges and overcome them.”

Bradford return to Kingstone Press Championship action this Sunday, taking on London Broncos at The Hive.

BROOK IN COUGARS SWITCH

27 May 2015

YOUNGSTER Adam Brook has joined Kingstone Press League One side Keighley Cougars on loan.

The 20-year-old scrum-half will spend the next month at Cougar Park, with a view to gaining further game-time as Keighley continue their push for promotion back to the Kingstone Press Championship.

Halifax-born Brook was a star of the Bulls’ Under-19s side and graduated last year.

Bulls head coach James Lowes hopes Brook, who is sponsored by JBW Music, can continue his development during his loan spell – which commences with immediate effect.

“Playing for Keighley allows Adam to continue to gain much-needed game-time, closer to home,” said Lowes, who is sponsored in memory of Joyce Dobby.

“He was enjoying his rugby with Oxford but it is quite a distance to travel and we need to ensure Adam is continuing to improve on the field.”

Brook could feature as early as this weekend when the third-placed Cougars take on league-leaders Oldham at Cougar Park.

Meanwhile, the Bulls return to Kingstone Press Championship action on Sunday, taking on former Super League rivals London Broncos at The Hive.

You can secure tickets for the round-fifteen contest by CLICKING HERE or calling a member of our ticketing team – on 08448 711 490 – during normal office hours.

Return coach travel is also available, priced at £32 for 1863 Members and £35 for non-members.
