Matty Blythe has tipped fellow Bulls newcomer Jamie Foster to prove a hit at Odsal in 2013.

Both men are gearing up for big seasons after being recruited by Francis Cummins and Blythe admits he has been impressed with Foster so far.

Blythe has joined Bradford on a season-long loan deal from Warrington and is glad to have Foster, signed on a one-year permanent contract from St Helens, as a team-mate rather than an opponent.

“We knew what kind of player Jamie was at St Helens,” said Wolves centre Blythe.

“He was very elusive and deceptively strong. His kicking is superb and he can score tries.

“He’s a good winger and he still thinks he needs to prove himself to the world of rugby league.”

Foster has at times been a target for opposition supporters because of his colourful image.

But Blythe said that behind all that was a steely determination to succeed in his rugby league career first and foremost.

Foster proved his class when Hull FC coach Peter Gentle took him on loan in the final third of last season.

He played nine consecutive games, scoring five tries and kicking 45 goals in amassing an impressive tally of 110 points to help Hull reach the play-offs.

Blythe said: “People may perceive Jamie as a bit cocky but he’s got his head screwed on.

“He’s aware of how hard it’s going to be this year to impress. But he’s settled in really well and is on the right path.”

If other teams hammer him with the high ball and he does not cope too well he will lose his confidence and end up working in his hairdressers shop.

This info. was sent via John Hamer, and the West Yorkshire Police if interested
It looks like there's someone that has hijacked the site.
Aren't these sites supposed to be private and controlled?

I'll stick to the RL site...they have a few idiots but generally not as many parasites.

REPORT MINOR CRIME ONLINE: Report a West Yorkshire crime online, request a callback or report lost property, all via our website http://www.westyorks
hire.police.uk/

Also he wants to let as many people know as possible about the Police World Cup.

The Police World Cup is coming to the UK in july 2013 involving British Police, Fiji Police, Australia Police and New Zealand Police

Spread the word and support the squads

Cheers.

I am sure my old mate John is aware of the relaxed rules announced this week for social network posts and tweets.
I expect the force will put all the staff on overtime to investigate non abusive posts on a forum.
