DALE Ferguson is determined to end a hugely frustrating debut campaign at Odsal on a high.

The close-season signing from Huddersfield has made just five appearances for the Bulls this year due to a persistent back problem and other niggles.

But he is now fighting fit and made his first appearance for two months in last Friday’s stunning win at Leeds.

Ferguson wasted no time getting stuck in at Headingley and was delighted to play his part in the famous 20-14 success.

The Scotland international said: “It has obviously been a long old year for me with injuries, so it was massive to get back out on the field with the boys.

“I’m just trying to make my mark and get in the team, which has been my intention since joining the club.

“Going to Headingley is always a tough task and I know they had a few players out but it was class to get the win and we deserved it.

“Finishing the season strongly is something the boys have talked about. It has been a tough old year but beating Wigan and Leeds has really set us up for a strong end to the season.”

The back-rower recently signed a new two-year deal and added: “Getting an offer from a club was a massive relief.

“After this season I felt I needed to pay the club back, so I took it up straight away.”

The Bulls are expected to confirm the signing of Featherstone winger or centre Etu Uaisele later today.

I'd definitely put Dale in the Ferres, Whitehead and Batemen talent category. Looking forward to watching him 'rip it up' next season.

Worstbus..... another one with 'mummy issues' - needs help before it hurts itself!

Be nice if he could stay injury free but that was one of the reasons Giants off loaded him as he will be challenging for Matty Blythes sick note title.

As for Worstbus there is only one word.......****!
