Lowes looks at the positives after Bradford Bulls ripped in half by St Helens

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Paul Wellens scores St Helens' second try of the night Paul Wellens scores St Helens' second try of the night

JIMMY Lowes admitted the Bulls’ second-half fightback in last night’s 46-22 defeat at St Helens was too little too late as they edged a step closer towards relegation.

Saints were 40-0 up in the 49th minute before the Bulls hit back with four tries in a spirited rally which saw Luke Gale, Joe Arundel, Adrian Purtell and Jamie Foster cross the line.

Yet Lowes readily conceded his men were simply blown away by the Super League leaders during an utterly one-sided first half.

St Helens led 28-0 at the break and Lowes was left lamenting his side’s sluggish start.

Lowes said: “There is something there but we’ve just got to find it earlier.

“It’s a tough place to come, an intimidating place, and we were miles off in the first half, absolutely miles off.

“It’s a shame because they did show they could play some rugby and that was pleasing because we looked like a decent side when we cut lose.

“Unfortunately, in the first half we didn’t compete at all with St Helens at any level. End of story.”

Lowes’ assessment was brutally honest and he is already plotting for life in the second tier next season.

The Bulls’ second administration in 18 months in January saw them docked six points and led to the exit of a number of key players.

They have been fighting a losing battle ever since and they now lie 11 points from safety with seven games remaining.

Lowes admitted: “It’s looking more and more likely that we will be relegated and if that happens, we will get our heads round it.

“If we go down, I want the lads to go down in the manner of that second half. That’s the aim.”

On-loan Hull forward Jay Pitts went off with a suspected rib injury and could be a doubt for next weekend’s trip to Huddersfield.

Lowes added: “We’ve got a game next week against a side who are very good with the ball. We need to compete with that.

“That spell in the second half shows there is something there. St Helens didn’t stop playing – we started to play.

“The lads are trying really hard and that’s the pleasing thing.”

WOW. I wish I understood rugby as much as that Alex. I would never have guessed they had switched off. But then again, if I had, I would never come on here and state the bloody obvious.

I think we'll give axelf the points for stating the obvious and the pointless trophy for a stunning insightful revelation about the game, which he obviously watched. Must have seen more than Jimmy, cos he said Saints didn't stop playing but we began playing, or something like that!

Axelf you are coach of the year????

Once again another very heavy and humiliating defeat, yet for some strange reason the headlines remain constant about taking positives from a dire performance. No one can seriously take any positives from a season of serious lows (no pun intended). For once I want to see comments saying that we just aren't good enough to compete in Super league anymore. The only positives I can see right now is that we have a club which should soon be financially secure, a passionate coach who loves the club, and the view that the feel good factor will probably return should we be winning again next year!

You are so wise. Where do you get these great insights from? I hadn't realised until now that the Bulls would get relegated.

It's like the time you announced the Bulls had money problems. Like we didn't all know that anyway. Then claimed as if you were telling us something new.

Its like Axelf predicting a poor Bulls side short of players was going to lose to a top side then claiming to be some sort of mystic Meg. Again it was common knowledge and something everyone else thought was a given therefore didn't need pointing out.

The Bulls have nothing to do with you. Don't waste your time following them or my time making pointless comments.

Rewriting history Bronco. You were absolutely clueless to the money troubles till I made you aware. Infact you laid praise on Khan for leaving the club in a much stronger position which confirms you were clueless to the upcoming disaster.

Omar saved the club and put it on a firmer foundations. The job was just too big for him. with people like Robbie on board, the club is now set to move forward. We have a decent fan base of loyal supporters . Huddersfield struggled to get 5000 when they finished top of the league and the guy putting the money in is well past retirement age. I can't wait for next season, lets hope the team does well on the pitch and all those that don't get a season ticket pay on the day. That would boost the club coffers even more. 

Perhaps sports clubs aren't cheap to run, but RL clubs such as the Bulls should be one of the easiest. Once the full sky money becomes available alongside Money from attendances, sponsorship, merchandising ,food and drink sales etc etc as long as we don't give out stupid pay deals like Hood did with Sykes, Platt, Langley, Halley etc then i'm sure they should come close to breaking even. 

Thanks Omar for giving it your best and stepping in when the club was set to fold. I think we'll look back in years to come and fully appreciate how important you were to the club. Most people who come on here and criticize cant even hold down a full time job and have achieved very little in their sad lives. good luck to you in the future and hope to see you enjoying the games next season

Well said Bronco, the troublesome carbuncle that is TVOR, is one of these
" I told you so Brigade" who never attempt to motivate any success story, not that we have had many this year.
For example he never comments on anything that is a good result, only the poisonous.

There are some idiots on here who seem to get their kicks by taking great delight in the Bulls' misfortunes. TVOR and Axelf spring to mind. Why don't you shove off as you are surplus to requirements and we would all be better off without your ill informed comments. Axelf clearly knows nothing about the game as anyone with just a mustard seed of knowledge knows that Saints do not ease off. When they are allowed to get on a roll they pile on the agony. When they reached 40-0 they were probably looking for 80 but as we know this didn't happen. Jimmy stated that Saints had not eased off but what does he know when he has to compete with the paragons of knowledge on this forum. Don't bother to respond with your usual tripe as I'm not interested.

TVOR. Which bit of my comments do you disagree with?

1 Firmer Foundations. They would have gone bust had Omar not stepped in. Therefore any foundation is firmer than NO foundation
2. The club WAS in a position to move forward.
3. We still have stronger fan base than Hudds. Unfortunately not enough stay away fans came forward to back the new owners.
4. Unfortunately we did continue to pay big money out instead of cutting our cloth and preparing for 2015 LIKE I HAVE SUGGESTED ALL ALONG.
5.Omar did his best. It just wasn't good enough. At least we still have a club which might not be the case had he not stepped in when he did. I hope he is still welcome at games.

TVOR the very reason I had been talking about not making stupid signings was because I knew we would be struggling financially until we got the club on firmer foundations and got the full SKY money.

Can i just repeat this again. I didn't need you to point out the obvious months later then claim it as breaking news

Now get back to your research and find something I said that I don't stand by.

BTW BCFC and Park Avenue etc WOULDN'T HAVE STEPPED IN BACK IN 2012. THEY BOTH WITHDREW THEIR BIDS. The only other bid was from the SL and we know how much help they would have been.

The fact that in 2014 new bidders were willing to invest in the club shows It was woth saving in 2012.

Got to love TVOR. He does it every time. You may not like the fact he says it how it is. But he has been banging on for ever about the financial footing. For years. I was commenting on the story when Viking (whatever happened to him?) posted his silly 'were in the money' comments. Yet it was TVOR that got the negative comments. I am as big a Bulls fan as there is, but that doesn't mean I have to be blinkered and think it is all rosy.

Axel is a different story though. He is just an oaf.

TVOR. Which bit of my comments do you disagree with?

1 Firmer Foundations. They would have gone bust had Omar not stepped in. Therefore any foundation is firmer than NO foundation
2. The club WAS in a position to move forward.
3. We still have stronger fan base than Hudds. Unfortunately not enough stay away fans came forward to back the new owners.
4. Unfortunately we did continue to pay big money out instead of cutting our cloth and preparing for 2015 LIKE I HAVE SUGGESTED ALL ALONG.
5.Omar did his best. It just wasn't good enough. At least we still have a club which might not be the case had he not stepped in when he did. I hope he is still welcome at games.

TVOR the very reason I had been talking about not making stupid signings was because I knew we would be struggling financially until we got the club on firmer foundations and got the full SKY money.

Can i just repeat this again. I didn't need you to point out the obvious months later then claim it as breaking news

Now get back to your research and find something I said that I don't stand by.

BTW BCFC and Park Avenue etc WOULDN'T HAVE STEPPED IN BACK IN 2012. THEY BOTH WITHDREW THEIR BIDS. The only other bid was from the SL and we know how much help they would have been.

The fact that in 2014 new bidders were willing to invest in the club shows It was woth saving in 2012.
How did Khan put the club on a firmer footing? It went into admin not long after he ran off.

He put a two bit shyster like Whitcut in charge, a man who had a very well documented list of business failures.

When will Marc Green announce he is not pursuing the points via the High Court?

Obviously heard the rumour BB otherwise why would you post a comment, another one of the "I told you so brigade" who likes to pose as in the know, after the event??
Really pathetic, and for all those who think that the true supporters aren't able to apply sensible logic to situations that are bound to have existed , given the dire circumstances that the Bulls have faced over this last few years. Isn't it time to do away with your inane cretinous comments, and credit our supporters with some sense of realism, instead of calling us idiots for continuing to support something that many of us have followed and believed in for many years.
Don't tell us anything we don't already know for ourselves, all you and your other counterparts ever do is attempt to feed off other peoples misfortune.
