JOHN Kear expects the Bulls to deliver one final hurrah tomorrow before the Dewsbury era begins.

The curtain comes down on their first year back in the Championship with a trip to relegated Rochdale.

A win over the bottom club guarantees sixth spot - a target that will satisfy the coach after missing out on the play-offs.

But he also wants to savour a big performance from the last time some of the team will play together.

Ethan Ryan is set to join Hull KR and other departures are anticipated as Kear prepares to rebuild for the move to their new home for 2020.

“I don’t think it’s about motivating them to keep focused,” said Kear about the prospect of facing the division’s whipping boys, who have won only once all season.

“We know some players have signed elsewhere, so this is going to be the last time this group plays together.

“I genuinely believe they do enjoy playing the game of rugby with each other.

“I think they’ll do that simply out of respect for each other. So, I’m looking forward to what I feel will be a good performance.”

Kear admitted the reality of leaving Odsal has still not sunk in.

“You’ve got the immediacy of one more game,” he added. “It probably will do when we sit down next week after Rochdale and we review the season.

“Then we’ll start planning in real detail for pre-season, how we’re going to play and our recruitment when we come out of special measures.

“But we want this win because we want to come sixth. There are loads of reasons to play well in our final game and that's how we'll sell it to the players."
