MANUOKAFOA: Family

MANASE Manuokafoa has vowed to finish the season on a high as he approaches what could be the end of his time at the Bulls.

The 29-year-old prop has proved a resounding success since he was signed from Parramatta by Mick Potter ahead of the 2012 campaign.

But after the Bulls’ relegation was confirmed on Sunday, it remains to be seen whether Manuokafoa will stay at Odsal for life in the Championship.

He is keen to sort out his future within the next fortnight but, as things stand, he has not received offers from any other Super League clubs.

Manuokafoa said: “I will explore every avenue with my agent going forward but right now I’m not sure where I’ll be next season.

“I’d like to get it sorted soon because I don’t want to leave it too late as I have a family to consider.

“I still want to be playing in the top flight but I’ve not had any other offers from Super League clubs yet.

“I’ve not ruled out staying at the Bulls – I can’t rule anything out – but hopefully I can get something sorted in the next couple of weeks.

“The sooner the better really – but I don’t want to be leaving the Bulls after three years on a low. If these are my last few games, I want to go out on a high.”

Manuokafoa said the Bulls had become a big part of his life, despite a series of off-field problems which have blighted the club during his stay.

The Bulls went into administration during his first season with the club and did so again earlier this year with devastating consequences.

The squad was ripped apart and the club docked six points to leave the Bulls facing a massive challenge that proved beyond them.

Manuokafoa said: “The fans and the club have been great to me and it’s a pity we have been in administration twice in the past couple of years.

“Had it not been for administration, we would have still had a good squad.

“This is my third season at the Bulls, and it’s a big part of me, but the reality is that we are now relegated.”

The popular front-rower believes the Bulls have improved since Jimmy Lowes took charge last month.

“Since Jimmy has come on board, he’s been really good with us and is trying to change our mentality," said Manuokafoa.

“We turned over cheap ball and Huddersfield made us pay but you couldn’t fault the boys’ effort. At least we went down fighting.”

Meanwhile, Jamal Fakir will return home at the end of the season to join French outfit Lezignan.

It is human nature to look to earn good money and provide for one's family so he is forced to look at options as will other players. The irony seems to be that our 'best' players don't seem to be on other SL clubs radars - that says a lot I feel. On the positive side I positively think a really good' shake up' is needed!!

But is it an exodus if "ordinary" players leave?

I also am not overly impressed with Manu. Yes, at times he is very good but he isn't consistently good. It all depends if we can get better. I expect Lowes to be similar to Peter Fox. He will want grafters that he can rely on 100%. I also feel the same about Kearny. Great in attack but very ordinary defensive full back. There will be others just as good who would join us. Foster and Sidlow can go now for me. Just not up to SL standard.
Jimmy needs to bring in a group similar to when we brought in Dwyer, Nichol, Laughlan and a few others we thought were past it but did a great job in a re-building period. They are out there.
So, if these left today I wouldn't be too concerned even if some do gloat at it being an exodus.

Agree with you he never breaks the line just gets to it and turns and backs into it. Not surprised other SL clubs not calling for him far prefer we go for Moore if the rumour is correct, he was Wakefields stand out player at Odsal even if he is hot headed.

No it's not an exodus. Its a clear out and it's exactly what you need. Get rid of the big time Charlie's who are only there to pick up a pay check and replace them with passionate players who want to play for the club.
Nothing worse as a fan than when you see players not giving 100%.

To be honest, i don't think our current squad would be good enough to gain us promotion back to S/L if they all stayed at odsal.
Therefor a total clear out is needed. Nice to hear Gaskill wants to stay on. That's the kind of attitude we we need from the players that are to form our squad for next season.
I do understand that some players will naturally opt to leave, What puzzles me is the likes of Gale signing a new 5 year deal only weeks ago when he knew he would be off if we were relegated. Simply no loyalty,these days and contracts are just worthless bits of paper. Yes i understand there are get out clauses, but why sign a deal you have no intention of keeping.
I recon quite a few of the players who want to be off, will find it hard to find a S/L club who wants them. Have faith in Jimmy though, I feel he will have a few players in mind who he wants for next season, it will be interesting to see just how things work out.
GOOD LUCK to all concerned for next term..........

That's the sort of attitude that got us relegated in the first place.
Thanks but no thanks Manu. We want and need only players who want to be here.
Exactly my point earlier.

the bulls contract is plan b for most,its quite disgusting seeing as they got us relegated in the first place.personally all the people considering their options(waiting) should be shown the door imo

Someone wanted names, I can give you loads of names, but if I did, it would take away the surprise.

Clue, Ross is talking to Richard Moore tomorrow, who has been released by Wakefield. Eric Outhwaite, who has been released by HMP Strangeways and Rubber Soul released by the Beatles,

Need anything else Axel.

I agree someone who is not 100% in playing for the Bulls should be shown the door.
For those of you interested,there was a good article in today's Yorkshire Post. Re Bulls plans for the coming season in the Champion ship. Which basically said if you want to play for Bulls you can, but if you don't ie looking for a SL club, you can't. I suggest you should read it, will clear a lot up.

You do know Leeds RLFC existed before the start of super league don't you?

As for cheating, I assume you refer to us signing Morley, who tipped us slightly over the salary cap. We were punished accordingly. Interestingly, in the same season 2 Leeds players tested positive for a prohibited substance, but somehow escaped punishment. Drug cheats, to me, are far worse than a salary cap breach, but RFL didn't want to upset their golden boys.

Worstbus.
Your might Leeds were in serious financial trouble at the beginning of Super League. If Caddick had not come in with his money they were faced with selling the ground and players. Leeds Rhinos were fortunate that Caddick wanted somewhere for Headingley RUFC (Now Leeds Carnigie) to play as he had bought there ground at Kirkstall. All the above was stated by Barry McDermott on Sky and Gary Heatherington in The Rugby Leaguer & Express. Add to the Leeds drugies the jailbirds.
We will go into the championship and do our best to get back into Super League, if the team play entertaining football and have good results I will be happy. I am an ex player who knows the rules of the game both on and off the pitch and have followed Bradford Northern/Bulls since short trousers I have seen the worst and the best. I will be at Odsal next year in my seat have no fear.
Where will you be but then again am I bothered.

Manuokafoa has gone to Widnes. Any current Bulls players who are of decent SL standard will be off. Gaskell is staying because he's not as good as the 12 clubs who will kick off next season already have in the halves or at full back. He's also got biscuit bones, so will spend plenty of time on the sidelines.

Gale signed a 2 year deal in February this year.
