Bradford Bulls: Michael Platt will not rest on laurels after London Broncos heroics
The Bulls centre returned to the side against the Broncos and rewarded Mick Potter’s faith in him by claiming four clinical finishes in the 29-22 success.
But, with Chev Walker now fit again and Adrian Purtell potentially available for next week’s trip to Salford, Platt knows he has to keep performing to stay in the side.
He said: “Anyone who scores four tries is going to be happy.
“My team-mates really helped me out and I didn’t have a lot to do with some of those tries.
“I must thank them but I was dropped last week at Warrington and I realise that competition is intense.
“Chev Walker is pushing for selection and Adrian Purtell has to come back from injury.
“But we’re a team and the more quality players we have the better results we’re going to get.
“You know you have to play well to keep your place in the side or even get in the side.
“It’s tough at the moment, as I found out last week.”
Platt has impressed when called on this season and said the spirited comeback win at Leyton Orient underlined the belief in the squad.
He added: “I was confident we could come back and win the game, even after conceding those three tries.
“London played well and were perhaps unfortunate with some of the referee’s calls, but that’s not for us to worry about.
“We took our opportunities when they came, got the two points, and we’re happy with that.”
