Yes but it's not just who are top 4 in Championship TVOR, Potentially Bulls have to get in top 4 THEN play against the bottom 4 in Super league so a potential league of : Hull fc Wakey Salford London Leigh Fev Fax Bulls Which they then have to finish top 4 (after4v5 playoff) in that to get back in, If Bulls think that's a given they are more deluded than I thought.

That was a proper competitive game. Solid defence and some good work in attack. The change of coach seems to have worked. Maybe sentiment has held us back.

Cracking stuff!! Anyone notice that a few of our lads are in markedly better nick physically, Addy, Sidlow, Nas, all look like they've been in the gym and out some pounds on up top. We matched wigan in the forwards today and that's why we won. Well done Jimmy and all the boys!

Couldn't agree more with the plaudits today. Done us proud boys, funny old game when the pressure is off. No team associated with Jimmy Lowe's will lack aggression and desire. Look out Championship.

What is amusing, apart from giving Wigan a bloody nose, we got 6.5k through the gate, not bad for a team bound for championship!! Giants, top 8 side only get 4.9k, how they survive with those gates is beyond me and others.

A rock is missing it's viking from underneath it. We're in the Money, We're in the Money! 6.5k is not a good gate, no matter how you dress it up.

Well done to the team and to James. Play like this for the next 18 months and with a winning attitude to match, instead of the negative "backs to the wall" style of play, and we'll be back in superleague before we know. Great stuff......COYB ! ! !

TreVOR, would you care to explain how moving to VP would be ‘cutting costs’ – Try engaging your brain first, you idiot Troll! You of course are entitled you your opinions, just like I’m entitled to disregard them as the pathetic sad ramblings of an Internet Troll. Excellent performance from the lads today, shame Jimmy wasn’t around 3 months earlier. Looking forward to next season – As they say, once a Bull, always a Bull!

A comment like that shows you don't have a vested interest in the bulls Why not shift a long and go blog somewhere that your wanted Bulls will be ok in the next 3-5 years and back to the top 8 Will take hard work first though

You keep giving yourself away. How many usernames does 1 person have on here? I had a free afternoon so wondered down. Might aswell cheer on a local team with a fight on their hands. Scrappy game but entertaining. Cougars very fortunate to go in ahead at half time. Doncaster started second half on fire, but the turning point was grabbing a grubber kick on Doncasters last tackle and running 80 meters to setup a score. The 40:20 at the end gave them breathing space and they saw out the win. All this is a level of rugby you didn't know existed and hopefully the revamped format will help these clubs unlike Bronco who would rather see them die for the Bulls gain.

It was a good win but a bit late. Beating the Wire was good but that is basically it. Even the Bulls fans said too many handling errors and bad defence. I hope they don't go to Valley Parade but economically some will say its needed for both clubs as the council reap the benefits. If it happens of course.

Just been reading through a few threads, prior to my evening meal, and I find that the trolls are not perfect! They say I said " we're in the money "after Provident became the sponsor, not so. It was after OK became the owner, the only ones that seemed to do any spouting re Provident was said Trolls, going on about " pay day loans " Acronyms are my thing at the moment, TVOR, as you have seen.

You weren't there, were you? Illusions are part of the unreal ! This was no illusion nor was it unreal. The bulls were a team of winners and Wigan were actually blown away by the skill and commitment by our team. We spoke to many Wigan supporters who as always were gracious in defeat, but more than that they were deeply saddened by our relegation. In fact they put the likes of you and some of the other mealy mouthed trolls to shame. Carry on with your sad and inaccurate assessment of all things to do with the Bulls, you do your worst and we will do our best!

Rubbish you don't know what you were talking about. We had 12 errors in the whole game Wigan had 17. Our defence was not at fault, nor was Wigan's. It was a good game and worthy of any good quality SL clash. Learn to watch the enthusiasm of the crowd, and listen to their comments. Come clean PSW, you made that up didn't you??
