Lowes available for Bradford coaching job

Former Bradford Bulls hooker James Lowes has confirmed that he is interested in the vacant coaching job at Odsal.

Lowes, 44, is currently working in rugby union, as coach at Leeds Carnegie, where he is on a rolling month-to-month deal.

The former Leeds Rhinos assistant coach believes that he is now a much-improved tactician, who can help the Bulls to rebuild.

“I’d like to at least sit down and talk with Marc Green to hear his plans,” said Lowes, according to the Bradford Telegraph and Argus.

“That would be the first step and it would be nice to meet with the bloke.”

Lowes has been disappointed, however, in the past when it comes to trying to land a coaching job at Odsal.

“I was still at Warrington but applied for the Bradford job when Peter Hood was in charge,” he explained.

“I didn’t even get a reply to my application, which was very disappointing and left a sour taste.

“But it’s obviously a job I’d love to do whether it’s now or in the future. It’s Bradford Bulls – it’s my club.

“I’ve massively improved as a coach in the past couple of years, working with Tony Smith and Brian McDermott then taking over at Leeds Carnegie. We’ve had a great year.”

It is understood that John Kear, currently at Batley, and Glenn Morrison of Dewsbury, are also considering applications for the post.
