Lowes angry as Bradford’s standards slip

Bradford coach James Lowes was unhappy with his team, despite them winning away at Workington at the weekend.

Lowes felt that his team had allowed their previously high standards to drop, and he does not want to see a repeat.

“We started the game off at a pace they couldn’t cope with but for whatever reason we lowered ourselves,” Lowes told his club’s official website.

“The pace and control we showed at the start dropped off after we scored our early tries.

“We allowed Workington to get back into the game and apply pressure. We switched off and they scored points.

“It is not good enough and we must now work to put right our wrongs, moving into this coming weekend’s game.

“Obviously everyone wants to beat us and we accept that, but we want to win as well and we are not going to lie down.

“We need to be better and we need to improve, otherwise we will end up enduring tough days at the office.

“This is physcological. It is a mental challenge for the players and a lot of it is down to them and their personal standards. The boys have got to shape up.”
