No sulking from Kear after losing right-wing spot
BULLS winger Elliot Kear is aiming to force his way back into Jimmy Lowes’ plans after being sidelined for the past two games.
The Wales international was dropped for the home defeat to Catalan Dragons and was left out again for Friday’s loss at St Helens.
Lowes also recently signed Danny Williams on a month’s loan and the Salford man has taken the right-wing berth normally occupied by Kear.
Yet 25-year-old Kear said: “You’ve just got to be positive and not sulk about it.
“I’ve been dropped a few times during my time at Bradford – it happened at the start of this season – but every player is going to get dropped at some point in their career.
“I’ll get my chance somewhere along the line, so I just need to up my game a bit more. That’s motivation for me.”
Lowes has stated that all of his players will get opportunities to prove their worth before the end of the season.
Kear, who is now in his third season at Odsal, added: “When Jimmy came in, he said he was going to be trying things out.
“It was a surprise to be dropped and a disappointment but it wasn’t a shock because I know I’ll get my chance again.
“It’s about what I do now, so I’ve got to just keep improving and training hard.”
Cardiff-born Kear is understood to have attracted interest from rival Super League and rugby union clubs but it is believed that Bradford are keen to keep him.
He added: “I’d definitely consider playing rugby union again because I grew up playing it and I still follow it now.
“But that’s not to say that I would go because I still love rugby league and I think I suit this game better. I’m settled at Bradford and I want to stay really.
“If I could get it sorted within one month that would be great. I definitely want to talk to Bradford first because I enjoy being with the lads here and coming into training everyday.”
The Bulls' relegation from Super League will be confirmed should they lose at Huddersfield on Sunday, with London Broncos already down after their 72-12 thumping at Warrington yesterday.
