SCOTT Moore believes his younger team-mates are learning to stand up to Championship bully boys.

A common failing in the Bulls' doomed survival bid has been their struggle to cope with more physical, streetwise packs with more experience.

But they bucked that trend in the 30-16 win at Swinton, coming out on top in a fiery encounter as they more than held their own.

Moore, who played much of the game at half-back following Oscar Thomas' injury, said: "Swinton are an old-school side with some big angry middles who like to get amongst it and have a bit of a 'biff'.

"In previous months and weeks, we have probably been bullied by senior players. I'm probably one of the seniors here but we haven't had many others all year.

"It is good to see some of the younger players standing up. They know what the Championship is about and they are earning their stripes.

"It's good for them and it's going to stand them in good stead for years to come."

With two consecutive victories under their belt, Moore sees no reason why the Bulls cannot turn the sequence into a more prolonged winning streak for the rest of the Championship Shield.

"Most of the teams who are in and around us in this lower half of the comp' we've beaten in previous weeks," said the Bulls skipper, the Hornets being the only team from their remaining fixture list who they have yet to beat.

"We want to win all our remaining fixtures and we don't see why we can't."

Moore insists the spirit in the camp remains upbeat despite relegation as they look to finish the campaign on a high – as much for the fans as for themselves.

He said: "The mood is as it always has been – pretty good, to be honest. We still want to win, we still get paid and we want to do it for the fans.

"They have stuck with us all year. If we can finish strong and put some smiles on faces, that's what we need to do."

Bulls fans out-sung and out-shouted the home support at Swinton, who are still fighting to avoid relegation themselves.

Moore said: "It means a lot. They probably bleed black, amber and red. I feel for them more than the players, to be honest.

"Players can move on and potentially go to different clubs and do other things but the fans are always here and stay loyal.

"It means more to them than to us – and I don't mean to say that in a bad way. They stick with the club through thick and thin, whereas players could go on to pastures new and forget about it, so it's good to get some wins for them."

Despite a difficult season, Moore is enjoying his time at Odsal after being released by Wakefield early in the year.

He said: "It's been good. The lads are amazing and through adversity you breed good relationships and friendships."

Asked if he would be open to staying next season, Moore added: "Yeah, I'm happy here. It depends on what kind of team stays around. I'm just taking it week by week."
