Bradford Bulls: Ferres humble after Wigan whipping

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Bradford Bulls: Ferres humble after Wigan whipping Bradford Bulls: Ferres humble after Wigan whipping

Bradford managing director Steve Ferres has made a public apology for the Bulls’ humiliating Easter Monday defeat to Wigan.

The Bulls’ 84-6 loss at the DW Stadium was the club's heaviest-ever defeat, eclipsing their 70-6 defeat by Hull in 2012, as Francis Cummins’ team conceded 15 tries to the champions.

In a statement, Ferres said: “On behalf of Bradford Bulls, I would like to apologise for what was a truly woeful and embarrassing display against Wigan Warriors.

“It was, without any doubt, the worst performance I have seen by a Super League side - and one of the worst I have ever seen.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the supporters who gave up a bank holiday, despite the busy Easter Weekend traffic, and made the strenuous journey over the Pennines.

“Our loyal supporters stuck with the team throughout the course of what was a tortuous 80 minutes.

“The squad has hit a low point and a root-and-branch review of what went wrong, why it happened and where we are going is now under way.

“The board of directors accept they have inherited a squad, which has been stripped of talent and hampered by injuries.

“But that cannot be used as an excuse for what happened at the DW Stadium.”

Gratefully received. The lack of a voice and leadership at the helm has been a problem for many years so well done Steve Ferres for fronting up and communicating.

And if I was Francis Cummins I'd be alarmed at that statement.

Its a plain and simple solution... that is to get some players in from somewhere... anywhere.. so long as they are above average quality and can do a job until the end of the season so we can re-evaluate depending on the league we play in.

Kearney is out of contract at the end of the year... are we going to offer him a new one? if not, then as well as 2-3 props, we need to be looking for a full back as well!

Just my opinion :)

Kearney says that a lot depends on whether we are SL or Championship, as the rules for overseas quotas in teams below SL is different!
But as you say Sp00ky we need Players and maybe a consultant top flight coach to help FC get them back on the rails. But above everything they need to be accountable for that appalling defeat.
Steve Ferres has already apologised.

What difference does it make who makes the statement? Many who went on Monday will think twice about going this weekend anyhow, so it's limited damage handing out free tickets. With no Catalan support, and season tickets not valid, it will be lucky to see over 4k for a game between 2 super league sides this weekend.

Steve Ferres says what we all think - the display at Wigan was woeful and embarrassing, to use his words, the worst performance he had ever seen from a super league team. What conclusion do we draw from this? Surely that the coach will have to go since he is ultimately responsible. Calls to bring in new players are unlikely to be realised, apart from one or two to supplement the squad since there are not that many available at the present time. But the priority is to change the coach and the defence coach. If Brian Noble is available and affordable he should be the man. Talk of bringing him in as a consultant is unrealistic and in any case might not be acceptable to Francis Cummins. I expect an announcement within two or three days.

5 games ago i said i didn't think the Bulls would win another game this season and was berated by a few fans on here. What do you think now ? Even if we win 2 games it will go down to whether London win any as to whether we stay up. Also, if you look on a previous post i stated i thought Wigan would win by 70+ points. It made me £500 online with William Hill. Cummins is not the man for us, i'm worried if he does get some money to spend but who knows, the priority seems to be buying back the bleeding ground....God help us.

Does Bullbob really think that Brian Noble would not improve this team. Of course he would. He's not at Salford now because of the impatience of the owner. But the latter will find out that Harris will not improve things, and certainly less quickly that Noble would have done. We need to win, ugly if necessary, and Brian Noble will certainly ensure that we do the basics right.
As they say these days, it's a no brainer!

Well done Steve Ferres for actually doing what is required. For too long no one in authority at Odsal has spoken about footballing matters. Sure, Franny has done his bit, but it needs those in charge of the club to stand up and acknowledge the seriousness of the situation. Most fans are shell shocked, disappointed and resigned to relegation. What we need now is a plan to stop the rot, and be told what that is. The Catalan cup game will provide another record, this time for the lowest crowd in the SL era at Odsal. Sad times indeed and radical action is urgently required.

I don't think the players are as a bad as they're making out. Its the coaching or rather lack of it that is the problem. It might be harsh on Cummins. he has no real back up but its obvious to everyone we have no idea about lines of running, sliding defences, wrestling techniques etc etc, the game has moved on and the bradford bulls haven't.

Noble was a good man manager and motivator but the problems started when he was in charge. we were getting left behind in coaching ideas the difference then was that he had great players to bail him out, but lets be honest in 2005 we won SL but we only finished 5th with a great team. We've been sliding down ever since. Our players aren't taught basic skills. Their passes are slow and often misdirected, our tackles are ineffectual. The spirit is there but we need a good coach with modern ideas asap.

Absolutely no point in bringing in new players if the old set is still in place.

NEW COACHES NOW PLEASE

I do not understand some of the comments on here concerning support for Mr Cummins and contempt for Mr Noble. Please correct me but didn't Mr Noble depart the club in an unseemly, bitter-tasting manner but leaving the club as World Champions, Grand Final Winners and riding high in the league? He has been replaced by a succession of the "new breed" of coaches and what has that brought? Making excuses about players just cannot hold. If players are underperforming then the buck must stop with the coach. Some say it is not the coach's fault, that the squad is weak, but 12 months ago we had a much stronger squad and had shown little or no improvement. Mr Cummins then embarked on his own recruitment drive to include Mr Ferguson, Mr George, Mr Foster, Mr Gale (re-signed), Mr Walker (re-signed), Mr Diskin (re-signed), Mr Sidlow (re-signed), Mr Henry, Mr Gaskell and Mr Fakir. If these players are underperforming, or not performing at all, then they are doing it for a coach who hand picked them. So, like many, I have been impressed by Mr Cummins' stocism in the face of adversity but like Mr McNamara and Mr Agar they are out of their depth. For those who say we need a "new breed" of coach, I say you cannot beat experience and experience of success. An analogy exists with Manchester United, the coach was wanting and had to be replaced. Excuses and positives cannot temper embarrassment and humiliation. Time to go Mr Cummins, do the honourable thing and resign before you are pushed. Time to go cap in hand and beg an erstwhile, experienced player/coach to return.

Aren't people forgetting that Nobby is currently in legal discussions about his role at Salford. Doesn't that usually mean he will not be taking any new job till his contract (and wages) either expires or the legalities are concluded in a way that leaves him free to work elsewhere. I may be wrong, but I doubt Nobby is in a position to work for anyone else just yet.

Brian will be both cheap and available. he isn't coaching at Salford. So why would he be any good at Bradford who have a lesser squad. Unfortunately he is also outdated
Don't agree bullbob. Although Harris was in charge for Salford's fixture at Odsal the other week he had no time to change the drills etc and that was Nobby's team and his training ground moves we saw and they were scintillating at times. He was sacked way too prematurely by a chairman with unrealistic expectations and his record in the game is as good if not better than any other Superleague coach over time.
