Matty Blythe has vowed to repay Francis Cummins’ faith in him after effectively being named as one of the Bulls’ first-choice centres for 2013.

The 24-year-old Warrington man has joined the club on a season-long loan and could form a centre pairing with Keith Lulia.

Blythe was handed the number four jersey when Cummins revealed his squad list earlier this week, pouring confidence into him as he bids to become a Super League regular.

Blythe said: “I’ve come to Bradford to play regular first-team rugby, so I was made up to be given the number four shirt and actually quite proud.

“There have been some great players who have played for this club down the years and that’s a big inspiration for me.

“Being given number four will just make me work even harder in preparation for the start of the season because I know that Franny has already put his faith in me. I’m now looking forward to repaying that faith.”

Blythe remembers watching Brian Noble’s all-conquering Bradford side, who reached five successive Grand Finals between 2001 and 2005 and won three of them.

“I’m not saying I’m going to be the next Shontayne Hape or anything like that but the history of the club certainly speaks for itself,” he said.

“There have been some great players here down the years and I’m looking forward to hopefully playing my part this coming season.

“Pre-season is going really well and the lads have bonded together superbly. It feels like I’ve been here for years.”

Where Blythe’s future lies beyond the end of the coming season remains to be seen.

For now he is focusing solely on proving a success at Odsal and is enjoying working with teenage trio Oliver Roberts, Sam Wood and Curtis Naughton, who were recently promoted into the first-team squad.

Blythe said: “I’m not really thinking about anything past Bradford. I just want to help the Bulls to a really good season and play regularly.

“The young kids they’ve brought into the first-team squad seem very knowledgeable and strong physically.

“They seem to have been influenced by the club’s ethos of working hard and off the pitch they’re involved in the social side of things too.

“Then you have the older lads such as Chev Walker, whose professionalism is out of this world. It’s similar with someone like Matt Diskin.

“The senior players’ professionalism is rubbing off on myself and the young lads. I’ve come here to be a senior player myself and to help the youngsters.

“We can learn from each other, though, and there is stuff that the younger lads do which impresses us too.

“As players you’re learning all the time. It doesn’t matter if you are a senior pro or a young kid. We’re all training well together and looking forward to the new season.”

Meanwhile, Luke Gale underwent surgery on his injured ankle yesterday which is expected to rule him out for eight weeks.

Sounds like there's a good, positive feeling at the club which will serve us well in future years, even if the next campaign is a struggle.

I know you are right there JA. I've been to a few of the functions and been involved with the Trevor Foster Lounge project. The positive vibrancy is palpable, and if that goes for the Players and coaching staff the team becomes just that, a team of everyone involved with the club, so whatever happens win or lose everyone is accountable, which is as it should be.

The feeling is like when the Bulls came into existence at the start of Super League. ie this club means business!!! setbacks happen in all walks of life, knowing how to deal with them is the difference between success and failure!

Don't feed the trolls. Trolling is one of those rare problems best handled by IGNORING it – if you do, it usually goes away. Trolls want your attention and discomfiture; they feed on your impotent rage. If they're trying to be funny, your willingness to rise to the bait provides the punchline. If you don't, there's no joke. The secret to withholding attention is consistency: never respond. That way, the trolls can't even be sure you've read their abuse.”

What do you think you are doing posting a sensible post offering a sensible opinion?! Such things will not be tolerated!! ;)

I agree though, it's not going to happen straight away, and the people who expect it to need to have a word with themselves. It's going to take a few years, but quite frankly I'm happy just to have a club to go support. In Fran we trust!

There should be no reason why supporters from other teams should not be able to come on here and have a sensible dicussion about R/L.
Lets be honest, reports from the T&A are not so inspiring, just repeating the same old story day after day, but with a different name at the top.
We all know we are going into next season with a( so far) weak squad. there is still time for FC to recruit but its going to yake time. ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY. niether can our team be.
Disappointing post by you franklyn,the fact that the sub-life on here thank you rather says it all doesn't it? It's not unique that you pitch in with our pond-life posters, you've happened on it before but then again, YOU haven't had you're user name / identity stolen by a certain individual on here like Mumby, Viking and myself - you choose to admonish genuine fans, sick to the back teeth of the crap that continue to hijack this site, and ignore all posts completely lacking in any RL content. Rich when you consider that the Trolls were partly to blame for your own brother hanging up his 'keyboard'! Pass on my best wishes to him next time you are in contact, If you still fancy a sensible discussion on RL, you know where to find me. it's not here anymore. COYBs!

I am pretty sure any name taking was done after a round of bullying by the ones mention, If you can't take it don't give it son.
Shelf, viking is now Helga and is still getting over his/her operation and I wish him/her well, Sheff has been posting under his other name and Mumbly is as boring as ever and reminds me of that guy on fast show who agrees with everyone once challenged.

Ilkey Bull - you are typical of the type holding the club back - bit like Bruiser Wood at Red Hall - I say welcome all comments and if it's bad let's acknowledge it and deal with it - that will ensure a prosperous future for our new Bulls. All this Red Hall spin just doesn't wash and veils the fact that some are out of their depth. Don't be like them Ilkley - see you at Bettys!

Very sad reading all the comments on here.The players were not to blame for the demise of the club, it was poor off field management.The players who now represent the club need to have confidence in themselves so whats wrong with making positive comments about the future.The new owners need to have some confidence in the players for all the brass they are shelling out.I think that it needs all the fans to have the same confidence, not falling out and blueing all the time on here.Buts thats only a comment from an old Bulls/Northern fan whose too far away to do anything except give the team some support..Go the Bulls.

Hey Ilkley Bull you're a bit precious tonight - nothing wrong with tea and scones at Bettys but it's so bloody pretentious and over priced - that kind of living is hardly the environment that breeds forwards in the Jim Mills mound or wingers like Mick Sullivan.

Thanks franklyn,
I have tried many times to talk about RL on here, but the usual suspects just show their small club, small mindedness when you are a fan of the all conquering Rhino's, they just can't contain their jealousy I'm afraid. I will not give up though and appreciate your thoughtful words of support.
I know just how you feel shelfrhino! I remember feeling the same way some time ago when bulls beat rhino's 5 times in one season. a feat your lot havn't been able to do to us as bad a team as we've had since.
enjoy your teams success whilst it lasts. It WILL come to an end some time. it's whats known as swings and roundabouts.

you are more guilty of giving these people food for thought by allowing them to get under your skin. IGNORE their silly comments and with luck they will go away and we can maybe get back to what this forum is really for. sensible debate on R/L.
