Jamie Foster: No over indulging from Bradford Bulls players over Christmas break
Bulls winger Jamie Foster is grateful to have the festive period off but is already looking forward to ripping back into pre-season training.
For the second year running, Francis Cummins has opted not to play a friendly over the Christmas holiday period.
The Bulls coach is not a fan of Boxing Day games and so his side’s first outing will be the home friendly with Hull FC on January 19.
After a gruelling pre-season campaign so far, Cummins’ troops broke for Christmas last Saturday and resume training on January 2.
Former St Helens man Foster said: “As much as you do enjoy playing, after you’ve flogged your body so hard during pre-season it is nice to have a break at Christmas.
“I think most of the players in Super League would say that if you asked them.
“It’s not a case of all the lads wanting time off to waste away all their training on nights out.
“It’s not like that at all – a lot of people have got families and they enjoy relaxing with their loved ones at Christmas.
“We certainly won’t abuse the time off during this period because, on a personal note, I’ve had my best off-season ever.
“I’m feeling in fantastic shape and will be raring to go when we come back on January 2.”
