NOT surprisingly after a man-of-the-match Challenge Cup display against West Wales Raiders, Elliot Minchella is feeling on top of the world.

Yet the 22-year-old Bulls player's happiness after scoring six tries in two games goes much deeper than any personal achievements.

"There is a buzz around the city, a buzz around the club with all the boys and we are building something," said the half-back or second row after two wins from two matches.

"We are all building a great culture, John (Kear) is steering the ship and I couldn't be happier at the minute."

One of the plusses about the Bulls at the moment is that everyone is singing off the same hymn sheet

Minchella said: "Whether you are on loan or dual-reg' or a trialist, we are all part of the same club; the same team.

"Everyone has bought into it and that is why we are doing so well. You wouldn't be able to look on the field and tell who was on loan.

"We are all playing with a load of passion, we are all after the same thing, and if we carry on as we are, I believe that we will achieve it."

As for the League One campaign, Minchella added: "Our long-term aim is to get promotion, whether that be by one point in the last game or after 20 games.

"We have this ruthless mentality at the minute and a good attitude and we are building a really good culture within the squad and the club."

One of the key elements to Minchella's game is his support play and he reflected: "You just have to be in the right places at the right times to get over.

"One of my tries last weekend was long-range, which was good, but credit to the boys who created the plays for a lot of them. I was just there to finish them off.

"It is nice when you are playing in a team where everyone is skilful and I am really enjoying it so far."

However, it a testament to the attitude that head coach Kear has instilled that they were bitterly disappointed to concede a try in the 76th minute last weekend, despite scoring 15 of their own.

Minchella described the lapse as an "out-of-character error" and "indisciplined".

He said: "Yes, we scored 80-odd points, but we were more focused on that zero. We'll work on that and be better for it before we face London Skolars at home on Sunday."
