BEN Evans admits he would love to start more games at Bulls, but is content to do whatever is needed for the club, even joking he would play on the wing if necessary.

Evans was in good spirits after his weekend with national side Wales, but for now the forward’s focus is on Bradford, and he said: “I’ve spoken to the coach, because I do want to start games, and I did a bit more last year.

“But I don’t mind coming off the bench, as long as my minutes are similar.

“If I was asked to play on the wing, I’d do that. I wouldn’t do a good job, but I just want to do what’s best for the team.”

That tongue-in-cheek comment does lead to the question of whether Evans prefers playing at prop or as a loose forward.

He said: “Prop and loose forward are similar positions really.

“I’ll get more carries as a prop, from kick-offs and drop-outs, and I did play more at prop last year.

“But I don’t mind because I don’t think there’s much in them in terms of difference.”

Evans has spent plenty of time in the back row with Chester Butler this term, and asked what his Wales team-mate, on loan from Huddersfield, offers, he said: “Chester’s a good lad.

“I’ve known him for years and I’m glad he’s at the club.

“He’s an all-round athlete and I’d like to see him play more.

“But he throws his body into challenges 100 per cent every time, and that’s probably why he gets the knocks he does.”

For all the niceties of catching up with old friends with Wales, Evans knows the focus has to move to Dewsbury now, a vital game for Bulls as they push to get into the play-offs.

Evans admitted: “We’re not where we want to be in the table at the moment, so every game matters.

“It doesn’t matter who we’re playing, we just have to get as many two points as possible, and get some consistency and form for the play-offs.”

That is something Evans wants to replicate individually too, and he said: “I’ve had a mixed season personally, because I started off with a different pre-season, coming back from a hamstring injury.

“In our games, it has been on and off, and some days we’ve turned up against those bigger teams, and others we haven’t, and I think that’s reflected on me personally too.”

Evans is raring to go for the game on Sunday, saying: “We’ll be striving to win against Dewsbury and hopefully the lads will be refreshed after a week off.

“When I played on Sunday for Wales, my HIA was just a precaution. I’m fine, I still played decent minutes, and I’m ready for this weekend.”
