    Easy to say it's the worst Bulls team ever seen but quite possibly one of the worst Superleague teams i've ever seen too, the re-building will have to start from the Championship, no matter much you slate me for saying it.

    Utter nonsense, lots of heart and desire today, a bit better ball control and who knows. Lets hope we get a few more bodies in, target the games we need to win and pick the odd bonus win, we will be ok. Don't forget there is a long way to go. coyb

    Don't let closeness kid anyone. Widnes were missing two key players in Mellor & Hanbury and were 16-0 up & cruising before being reduced to 12.just before half time. The bulls weren't in the game until then.

    There si only the Salford game that is a possible win in the next 6/7 SL games.

    Miracles do happen & the Bulls need one to avoid relegation.

    Pleased to say i am no longer a stay away fan and have nt been since hood and co went. However i fear the worst mainly down to the pr@@ks at rfl waiting so long to announce the decision they had decided weeks ago in terms of ownership. Had this decision been made when it should have and enabled us to make a couple of additions the last two defeats may have been victorys. I also await any feedback as to why mk bid was never given a chance or are those fools at red hall too ashamed to say the thought of a resurgent bulls does not fit in with their plans.

    Guess what, it doesn't matter what you think. We've already beaten Wakefield and London so where does that leave them if they been beaten by the worst ever SL team!
    This team has gone through more problems than any other SL club ever has. We've lost Scruton, Sammut and Carvell. We've got Sidlow, Diskin, Foster, Gaskell, Ferguson and George all out injured. we've had to throw a team together in a short space of time and we've still competed with with an inform team like Widnes on their artificial pitch. Well done lads today much improved performance. If not for the 6 points deduction we wouldn't even be bottom despite all our problems on and off the field

    Can't help but think that the guy in the pub the other night that was harping on about the RFL giving the Club to Green being a conspiracy to see us go down rather than letting one of the bidders that had the funds to take the club forward getting it; was not just a drunken fool.

    The RFL have had two thorns in their side recently; us and London. London are a shambles especially now that Gus has left and we are rerunning out of players with no new signings on the horizon.

    without strengthening the squad I cannot see where the points are going to come from especially with the run that we have coming up.

    Ask any London fan and they'll tell you Gus MacKay is the worst Chief Executive they've ever had. Hopefully the owner David Hughes will bring someone in who knows what they're doing as the last 3 years under Gus have been terrible both on and off the field.

    Think you are right about the RFL they want the Bulls and London to down which will probably happen. The big question is how will they rebuild for 2015 and beyond. Hopefully the Bulls will have enough support to stay full time so they can compete in the mini league for one of the four SL places that will be available. Might be quite interesting to welcome some new clubs to Odsal. Some of them, (Featherstone, Halifax, Batley) will actually bring more support than some SL clubs do this season. The Bulls will win more game so they might get a bit more support on top of the 5000 loyal supporters who will stick with them.

    As for London much will depend on whether the Barnet chairman, Tony Kleanthous, takes control of the club from present owner David Hughes who has told the RFL he intends to walk away from the club at the end of this season. Not sure how the departure of Gus MacKay is relevant to your thinking unless you thought he was the owner

    As someone that knows Gus quite well and what he has had to go through and fight for to keep London on the pitch over the last two seasons I doubt if anyone else in their Club set up would have or could have been arsed to stick it out as long as he did.

    Ha ha, typical response from a typical pri ck. So if we lose every week but play their hearts out, they'll stay up ?? No, they'll go down and clowns like yourself will still be saying 'greatest team in England'....muppet.

    Hi Oswald777. How much did you bet on the Bulls not winning another game and what odds did you get? I know its the second time I've asked you but you didn't answer the last time i asked you. Was I right when I said you were just being stupid?

    Think I was shocked to hear somebody actually praising Gus. I know he has had a difficult job to do, but he just buried his head in the sand and ignored all communication with the supporters over the winter and then wonders why so much support has been lost to the game just months after a successful and well marketed world cup. An opportunity lost in my opinion especially after the Wembley game against NZ
