Bradford Bulls: Lee St Hilaire embroiled in his own cash crisis
Lee St Hilaire has revealed the Bulls’ financial crisis has wreaked havoc with his home life as the club desperately seek a resolution to their woes.
St Hilaire and the rest of the coaching staff have been working without pay since being made redundant by administrator Brendan Guilfoyle on July 2.
Fans held a meeting at City Hall last night to discuss the club’s plight as talks continue behind the scenes with potential buyers, Guilfoyle and the RFL.
Assistant coach St Hilaire admitted: “As a group of staff and players we’re doing everything we can on the field to make sure things progress.
“But off the field it’s hard when your house is like a war-zone and everyone is arguing and worrying about things.
"I’ve got a wife, two daughters and a grandchild that live with me. I have a mortgage as well, so I’ve got to start looking at where my income is coming from now.
“I’ve got one daughter going to uni and the other in a part-time job.
“My missus is trying to do all the hours she can and during the last couple of weeks I’ve been thinking that I need to earn some money.
“I think that’s why my house is like it is at the moment.”
St Hilaire admits he cannot continue working without pay for much longer.
He added: “It takes a while to build your bank balance up but it doesn’t take long to chop it down.
“I’m trying not to dip into my savings but, with the way things are going, I am doing.
“At some stage you’ve got to make a decision for yourself as an individual.
“I think over the next week I’ll be doing that.”
