Kingstone Press Championship preview: Doncaster v Bradford Bulls

Doncaster didn’t have a fixture last weekend and coach Paul Cooke says it gave his side a much needed rest.

“I think the players feel the benefit from it; they feel refreshed and hopefully will be raring to go at the weekend for a much tougher test than we’ve had in a long time,” he said.

“Bradford will have recovered well and to score 30 points against a very good side in Hull KR is no mean feat. I don’t think anybody expects us to get anything from the game so it’s a bit of a free bat for us.

“What we need to do is improve performances and if we do so then we give ourselves a chance in probably some of the more winnable games.

“Having said that, we’ve played in games where we’ve been given no chance and upset the odds so we’ll certainly be drawing on some of those experiences.

“When people don’t give us a chance we generally get a lot more out of the team and individually the players give a little bit extra.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how the players respond this weekend against a very good Bradford team.”
