ANDREW Chalmers insists there is no panic to get the Bulls back into Super League as the club decide on a new coach.

Interviews are continuing this week to take on the challenge of leading them into a first season of third-tier rugby.

Joint-owners Chalmers and Graham Lowe will make the call on Geoff Toovey's successor after the selection panel put forward a recommendation, which is expected to happen at the end of the week.

Former Bulls playing legend Paul Anderson is the favourite among fans. Jon Sharp and Dewsbury coach Neil Kelly are others understood to be among the names in the mix.

But whoever is tasked with reviving the Bulls after nearly a decade of decline will not be faced with an immediate timetable to bring Super League back to Odsal.

Chalmers believes the squad is strong enough to emerge straight out of League One undefeated. Yet they won't put a deadline on the ultimate aim of returning to the top division.

He said: "It will be a long road but it's all relative. This club was founded in 1863 and you've got to put a perspective on all of these things.

"If it takes us to 2020 at the earliest where we can be in a position to re-enter (Super League), then so be it. It's not really that long.

"A lot of fans have spent multiple decades of supporting different club regimes. I see myself as a caretaker. I want to help the redemption of Bulls and put it on a really sound footing.

"We had an extremely pressurised rush to get the new organisation established. There were so many elements off the field that were affecting performance. It's shedding all those factors and we're just about fully there."
