IN-FORM Brandon Pickersgill is currently "undroppable" for the Bulls, according to Ethan Ryan.

The young half back has made a big impression since John Kear's appointment at Odsal.

His electric start to the season is allowing the Bulls coach the opportunity to gradually introduce Dane Chisholm back into the frame after his lengthy injury absence.

Pickersgill started again at Keighley on Sunday – where Chisholm came off the bench to play just over a half.

Team-mate Ryan insists the 20-year-old continues to give Kear a selection dilemma.

He said: "Hats off to Pickers week in, week out. He's becoming a regular and he's absolutely killing it.

"You can't drop him when he's in that kind of form and that's why we are doing that rotation with our pivots.

"With Chissy back, we're moving Pickers and Keyesy (Joe Keyes) and Gregg (McNally) round and it's working very well.

"We're all thinking as a team and everyone knows their jobs. It shows on the field.

"It's a headache for John – but you want that with your players because everyone's performing."

Kear has hinted that he could make a couple of changes for the Challenge Cup fourth-round visit to Hunslet as the Bulls look to close in on a potential money-spinning crack at Super League opposition further down the line.

Ryan, who bagged a late interception try at Cougar Park, stressed the atmosphere within the squad is buoyant again after the trials and tribulations of last year.

"We've had a solid pre-season this year and had no interruptions like last time," said the winger.

"Just to get off to this two-match winning start (in League One) is good. It's a lot better feel than last year and we're definitely on the up.

"There's nothing better than getting a win at the weekend and it brings a buzz around the place. Everyone is on the same page and it's great at the minute.

"Our aim is to have a good cup run this year. It's a great opportunity for us to get another win, go another round and hopefully get a Super League team – maybe even Leeds.

"It would be great to have a crack at someone like that and go out there as underdogs with nothing to lose."
