Potter unhappy with scheduling

Bradford coach Mick Potter is unhappy that his Bulls side face their second game in five days when they take on St Helens in Super League tonight.

The Bulls beat Castleford in a SKY Sports televised match on Monday night, and now travel to face Potter’s former club at Langtree Park.

He said: “Well it’s not right we should have to play with such a short turnaround.  I don’t think it will happen again and there has been some reason given to us as to why we are the only team to have to do it but that’s irrelevant.  

“It’s in the schedule and we are going to St Helens on Friday.  It’s not ideal preparation but we’ll take it on the chin and get on with it. The players haven’t been able to do too much training because they have needed that recovery time.  

“I understand why it’s been done but if it could be managed just a little bit better it would be better for the player’s welfare.”

Bradford were 46-32 victors on Monday, and have lost just one of their last four games.

After Friday night’s match against St Helens, the Bulls enjoy 16 days off before their next Super League encounter against Wakefield, owing to the free weekend set aside for the International Origin match between England the Exiles next Saturday, also at Langtree Park.
