Dane Chisholm explains Bradford exit as he prepares to play against them

Dane Chisholm was the star of the show as Featherstone thumped York at Summer Bash, and all eyes will be on him again next week when they take on former club Bradford.

Chisholm, 28, made the switch to Rovers on a permanent basis recently, with the two likely to be rivals for a play-off spot in the Championship.

Speaking about his departure from Bradford, Chisholm said: “It was mutual. I wasn’t playing footy. Me and coach didn’t see eye to eye.

“I went away to be the best man at a sponsors wedding and I never came back to the club. It wasn’t my decision in total but I wanted to be playing footy and this was the best choice for me.”

On the opening day of the Championship season, Chisholm kicked a vital drop goal which saw Bulls claim a 17-16 win over Featherstone.

What’s more, the Australian was Bradford’s top scorer in their 2018 League One campaign.

When asked about his thoughts ahead of the game with the Bulls, the player said: “It’s just another game. I’ve got a lot of friends there and it’s always a big event playing against your mates.

“You always want to play better and perform better against your friends and it makes you more competitive. I can’t wait to play against them.”
