BRADFORD BULLS winger David Foggin-Johnston has earned praise from the rugby league community this week, after his kind-hearted gesture towards a dedicated fan.

Foggin-Johnston was playing for Bulls' reserves on Wednesday night, with a fine performance in the 18-10 win over Salford Red Devils seeing him earn a recall to the provisional first team squad for this weekend's Championship clash with Sheffield Eagles.

But it was not his on-pitch efforts which got people talking on social media.

A loyal fan, who attends as many Bulls games, first team or otherwise, as he can, was at the midweek clash at Horsfall.

Foggin-Johnston and his partner spotted the fan, in Bulls gear, at the bus stop in the freezing cold after the game, and he explained that he had to take three buses to get back to his home in Leeds.

The kind-hearted pair decided that was not on, and picked the man up and drove him all the way back to his house, saving him time, money and a lot of waiting around.

The RFL praised Foggin-Johnston in a Tweet upon hearing the news, as did many other fans from across the sport. Another classic example of what it means when people talk about "the rugby league family".
