Bradford Bulls: Outrage at points penalty must act as spur, says Jamie Foster
Jamie Foster insists the Bulls must keep reminding themselves about the perceived injustice of their points deduction as they bid to stay in Super League.
Bradford entered administration for the second time in less than two years on January 31 and were docked six points as punishment.
Although new owners could be in place by the end of this week, Foster is aggrieved that Francis Cummins’ squad have been made to pay for circumstances beyond their control.
The Bulls winger said: “I remember the anger I felt when I first got told about us being docked six points.
“It’s easy to forget and cool down after a couple of weeks but I believe this points penalty is something we have to keep reminding ourselves of.
“At the end of the day, someone out there made a decision that they’re going to take six points off us but it’s unfair.
“I understand what has gone on behind the scenes but to punish players – especially when you think that livelihoods are at stake – is a massive call.
“Those points have been taken away from us and we have got to use that as added motivation.
“I know it’s a big call but it’s about payback and revenge against all those other clubs who shared the money out when we needed it.
“All those things mount up and we need to remember that – but we’re pulling in the same direction and that can only help us.”
