Elliot Kear nails it in highlight for Bradford Bulls
Elliot Kear admits he was saddened by the Bulls’ failure to make the play-offs but believes he has done himself justice this season.
Kear endured an injury-disrupted debut campaign at the Provident Stadium in 2012 but has been a picture of consistency this term and started every Super League game.
The 24-year-old Wales winger has impressed coaching staff and supporters alike with his hard-working displays and a creditable return of ten tries.
Kear said: “I remember saying at the start of the year that my aim was to try and nail down a spot and be consistent all year. I’d like to think I’ve done that.
“But the season’s over and that’s really disappointing because we thought we could go to Castleford and get a win to keep our play-off hopes alive.
“It was so saddening to get beaten. Yes, it was out of our hands, but if we had won our remaining games we would have given ourselves a good chance.”
Kear has been one of Bradford’s most consistent performers this season and is looking forward to representing Wales in the World Cup later in the year.
The former Crusaders man joined the Bulls on a three-year deal but admitted: “I’d like to stay beyond that because I’m really enjoying myself here. They’re a good bunch of boys and I’m enjoying my rugby.
“We all had a pretty average game on Sunday but I think as a winger you just have to put your hand up in yardage. Both our wingers and centres do that.
“I’m looking forward to the World Cup too. Hopefully if I get picked I’ll do myself justice.”
