BULLS enforcer Ross Peltier enjoyed the last laugh on the Keighley boo boys by declaring: I was right all along.

Peltier got plenty of stick in the build-up to Sunday's derby clash after predicting a convincing victory over his old club.

But the Bulls backed up his bold words with a dominant performance to win 54-6 – and Peltier also helped himself to a first try of the season.

"There were a lot of things said about me before the game and I got a lot of stick for what I'd been saying," he said.

"But if you look at the interview I gave, everything happened exactly as I said it would. It was close for the first 20 minutes and then we ran away with it.

"They had one lucky try when we switched off and we were disappointed to let in those six points because the aim every week is to get a zero.

"But we controlled that game from minute one to 80. I'm happy with the win."

Peltier, who spent three seasons with the Cougars, enjoyed putting one over them in the first league battle between the neighbours for 42 years – but he was not going over the top about the result.

"I always want to do the best I can whenever I put on a Bradford shirt," he said.

"Some of those comments made me want to prove a few people wrong – and what I said was right.

"I enjoyed my try a lot, especially after everything that's been said in the build-up.

"My first touch of the ball I got a penalty and the second a try – happy days.

"But it's just another two points towards winning the league and going back up. That's all we want to do and it's a step closer."

The Bulls put their 100 per cent League One start to one side this week to build up for a Challenge Cup fourth-round trip to Hunslet.

Peltier would love a cup run to go alongside their promotion push and said: "I was part of one at Keighley.

"We got to a quarter-final, although we had quite an easy run. It would be good to do the same with the boys.

"We've got Hunslet twice in two weeks, so hopefully we can put a marker down next Sunday before we play them again in the league."
