Heath L’Estrange in rallying call over Bradford Bulls season tickets
Heath L’Estrange believes fan power can give the Bulls another massive lift next season.
Bradford’s supporters arguably proved themselves the best in Super League during 2012, helping the club to hit the £500,000 mark during the Quest for Survival campaign and turning out in force home and away.
L’Estrange believes they can play another key role after helping to drive season ticket sales at Tuesday’s fans forum in the Coral Stand.
The joint-captain said: “The forum went really well, everything was positive and everyone is happy about how things are progressing at the club.
“I’m a massive supporter of rugby league in general and, if I wasn’t a player, I would personally love to interact with the team as much as possible.
“The forum achieved that and it was a really good occasion for everybody involved with the club.
“Hopefully all the fans will get behind the boys again now and get their season tickets so we can be as strong as we possibly can next year.”
L’Estrange also backed Francis Cummins to prove the ideal successor to Mick Potter following his elevation from assistant to the top job.
The Aussie hooker added: “I think Franny becoming head coach is great for everyone here because he’s a fresh-faced, young and enthusiastic coach who plays an exciting attacking style of rugby league which will really benefit us.
“I just can’t wait until we get ripped into preseason and get that first training session done.
“We’ve already got 16 players who are ready to go and hopefully a few other guys can agree to some deals so that we have a good team on the park.”
