Bradford Bulls heavily beaten in opener

Bradford Bulls 12 Catalan Dragons 34 The Bulls slipped to a humiliating opening-day defeat at the hands of Catalan Dragons at Odsal in this afternoon's Super League opener.

Mick Potter's new-look side found themselves 20-0 behind at the break after the defensive frailties which undermined them so often last season were again exposed.

They trailed inside the sixth minute when Dragons loose forward Jason Baitieri collected a pass from Setaimata Sa to cross the line from close range.

Scott Dureau, a pivotal figure at scrum-half for Catalan all afternoon, added the extras and continued to pull the strings.

The Bulls were dealt a blow when John Bateman picked up an injury as he contested a high ball and was helped off the field in the 17th minute.

Midway through the opening period, former Bulls hooker Ian Henderson produced a fine break down the middle and sent Clint Greenshields clear from 20 metres out.

It got worse for Bradford in the 30th minute when Thomas Bosc took a clever pass from Dureau to power clear and Dureau again added the extras.

The Bulls fashioned only one meaningful opening inside the first half but Jarrod Sammut failed to control the ball when just yards short of the line.

Dureau added a penalty on the stroke of half-time and three minutes after the restart Sa dummied his way past Ian Sibbit to cross in the right corner.

Dureau's conversion attempt rebounded off a post but in the 55th minute – after the Bulls had enjoyed a period of sustained pressure which they could not make pay – Catalan struck again.

Dureau chipped a delightful kick into the right corner and Daryl Millard touched down, and Dureau's conversion made it an afternoon to remember for ex-Bulls stars Henderson and Steve Menzies.

The Bulls replied in the 64th minute when Jamie Langley touched down in the right corner, which Luke Gale converted, but Sebastien Raguin crossed in the left corner for a sixth with four minutes remaining.

Elliot Kear plunged over in the last minute and Gale added his second goal but the game was long since finished as a serious contest.

Well, at least we weren't nilled! Catalan are a top six side and, today, the Bulls were not. It's a long season and for the die-hards, even longer. Nil desperandum. If the players are of sufficient quality then where is the problem? Time to take a lead from our football neighbours.

"THE TEAM THAT WAS"
What has happened to the once mighty Bulls, it seems there are problems both on and off the field .
A City of Bradford's size needs/should have successful sports clubs, so many Bradfordians look forward to the weekend, when the team of their choice takes to the field, hoping their team can put in a valiant effort which enables us mere mortals to go home buzzing and help us to face the rubbish times we endure throughout the week.
I live in hope that those halcyon days are just around the corner.

Anyone surprised? I have repeatedly stated that the policy of recruiting journeymen can only lead to abject failure. The recruitment policy over the last two seasons has been diabolical. Very little quality in the squad. I wouldn't be surprised if we finish bottom. By the end of the season I doubt whether half of the season ticket holders will bother turning up.

How the (once) mighty are fallen!

I can understand frustration at the playing staff, but that group is better than the results preseason and today would suggest.

For me it's a case of Potter out along with st hilaire.

These journeymen(!) need inspiring, motivating and a bit of fire in their bellys!

We need a won next week otherwise we could well still be bottom after the Wigan game.

Bulls showed today that they have the worst set of front rowers in superleague, they were all lazy in defence especially around the ruck and the effort wasnt there, dureau bust through two forwards almost twice his hight and weight to break.

what was satisfying was the shape the bulls had (although it wasn't utilized). Gale had an unusually poor game, with the shape we had, if had had just got his head up and hit some obviously clear options the score could have been alot different.
Sammut- great buy, need to keep him, he was the only player that had cares about pride.

Now for all that I am positive, I cannot defend the team or the performance today. Talk about lacklustre or what. Catalans seemed to break the defence at will and we seemed to show no kind of impression in attack. Quite a few tried however to no avail. Hopefully things will get better and I'm sure they will but things need to change and quick.

The Bulls selling their lease so they aren't taken over, moved to Valley Parade and left to wither on the vine smacks of severe financial problems regardless of what Mr Hood(winker) says. Me thinks the club are in trouble and what goes onto the park is being severely affected by what's going on off it. Mr Hood sold out to the RFL to save his own position. What happened to the payment from the RFL for the lease? Don't blame the players on the pitch. It starts and stops with Peter Hood. It was time to go, Peter, twelve months ago, it still is.

We so called idiots tried to tell you how it was. I guess you lot will still be trying to make a case for the team weeks into the season when the Bulls are holding up the table.

One does wonder what you doom and gloom supporters do in the off-season, training in negativity perhaps?

Surly its got to get to a point after 3-4 yrs of utter ****, that all the positive thinking that all us loyal fans had becomes drained. i mean how much can u personally take before u become a little negative, 3-4 yrs is a long time not to even compete.

We need a won next week otherwise we could well still be bottom after the Wigan game.

COYB!!!!
The problem is if Potter went, any replacement wouldn't fare any better with this squad.

We have to accept that the season is already over.
So one game in Potter should go & the seasons over ? dear me ! the biggest problem on the team is expectation the players have no confidence & are frightened to death to play in case the mess up. We do not play as a team its all one out rugby dull to watch & predictable. The squad is capable of top 8 imo but I dont think Potter has what it takes to instill the confidence & belief in the players. Our pack was poor today our halfs lacked communication & our wingers lacked ball. We can not call for Potters head after one game but its going to be a long season if we dont get 4 points from the next 3 games.Give it 6 games before calling for his head.

Craig says...

I said after the Hull game last week that we have too many players that want to play at being professional sportsmen wtihout being prepared to put in the hard yards associated with it. But, of course, I was being a doom monger, it was only pre-season; well it's coming home to roost game after game.

*
Quite simply, we are a team of puny weaklings; weak in mind, body and spirit. A poster earlier in the thread quite rightly mentioned how lazy we were defending the ruck area and we were (did anyone else count how often we still had at least one defender laid on the floor after Catalans had already played the ball and carved 20m up the field). However, part of the reason for that is that Catalans must have won 98% of the tackles they went into today on defence and attack.

*
Our defensive system is just shocking and when we have players who don't want to go and take attackers on and would rather be passive and let the game come to them, it's no wonder we are laid all over the pitch leaving massive holes in the line for a good team to exploit, our system just invites attackers to knock us over and get through the gain line.

*
As for the tactics on attack, I'd love to know who thought it would be a good idea for us to take Cats on up front; on paper their pack was superior (injuries or not) and on the field the point was alarmingly highlighted and, yet, we still persist in playing the one up style and getting crushed everytime we hit the line.

*
The club is on it's arse and I could only think back to the days when we had a pack that could grunt and grind the opposition into submission and attackers who loved to run the ball hard and fast and play a bit of football. Unfortunately, a team that didn't even exist when we were at our peak came and gave us a lesson in how it's done and our weak a***d players were all too happy to let them.

*
Absolutely pathetic (and I take no pleasure in saying it).

Well, it was the first game and pre-season didn't set us alight. Maybe our future lies in the Championship. Until this Board is ousted, I'm afraid nothing will change. It is a sad continuum at Odsal, Boards with no vision, creativity or money. We are spending up to the cap on what? It's up to the young players. The franchise system creates and perpetuates "journeymen". The MacNamara era began it at Odsal and the cycle cannot be broken. Administration or relegation looms but this Board is well versed in spinning the positives and the Bulls faithful goes round and round and round.

Defence awful. St Hilaire is clueless. I thought there were some positives: if Gale clicks with centres and wingers, we could have some decent strikepower. Purtell, Sammut and Kear looked promising. But unless we man up in forwards, we cannot win the arm-wrestle needed to rack up pressure. We are very suspect at the mo and even Wakefield, Broncos and Salford will fancy their chances of tearing us up. I hope and pray we can gel, quick, and give Cas a doing next weekend.

Nothing like delusion to keep some people going, we won't win next week, in fact, we won't win any week. All the decent Aussie coaches in Superleague now and we get Dame Edna, brilliant.

Defence awful. St Hilaire is clueless. I thought there were some positives: if Gale clicks with centres and wingers, we could have some decent strikepower. Purtell, Sammut and Kear looked promising. But unless we man up in forwards, we cannot win the arm-wrestle needed to rack up pressure. We are very suspect at the mo and even Wakefield, Broncos and Salford will fancy their chances of tearing us up. I hope and pray we can gel, quick, and give Cas a doing next weekend.
Where do you get St Hilaire is the defense coach ? thats the problem we dont have a specific defense coach.

What would have stopped leeds keeping them? Its not like they couldn't afford their wages, its the fact they werent good enough for their squad and had players of a far better quality ahead of them.
Bully 1 you can add Hargreaves to that bunch

If he were any good Saints would have held on

If he had any pride he would not have left a top 4 club to move to Bradford

For the last three seasons we have had the board and coaching staff telling us we can take heart because; we won the second halfe or we did not loose by as much as we did in the first

The game is 80 minutes for gods sake

All that we can take from only loosing the second half by 2 is that a heavily depleted Catalan side which had already won the game by the 40th minute had by the 80th minute started to tire

leave this Bull for Potter & Hood I am sure if you had waited untill they had had their Monday morning cornflakes at least one of them would have been more than happy to point this out

My thoughts exactly Graham, this lad should be playing his rugby as Odsal, he went to London last season on loan, which was probably the right move for him, but at least give him a chance this season before sending him back to Fev, gutted. Hope it works out for him though

Well i went to the game yesterday and i had de ja vous. One thing i`ve noticed since nobby left is the warm up! Lack luster and un motivaed. one thing Nobby did was motivate, when the team went out to warm up it was intense, they hit bags like they meant it and tackled each other as though it was the opposition. Now however theres no fire in the forwards. I dont agree with people saying the teams full of journey men! Look at Huddersfied, mostly Wakey players put under Brown look different players. Catalans are my tip to wn it this year they are a very good team, big pack good backs. IMO our backs will do well this year if they get the time and space. alot depends if the pack show some fire, get and offload game and do some dummy running!!!!!!!

It is so easy to wind moaners like you up. Of course I'm disappointed with the result and I am not pleased we only lost the second half by 2 points, but come on you numpty its only a game and I for one dont need reflective glory from the Bulls winning a game to feel good. You must have a very dull life if its only about the Bulls results!! So you get a life and overdose on the smell of coffee with Gordon or continue crying into your beer dregs!
