Weather holding back Bulls

Bradford coach Steve McNamara believes the quality of rugby on show will pick up as the season progresses and the weather improves.

His Bulls side battled to a 7-0 victory against Salford in terrible conditions at The Willows last Friday.

McNamara said: “There is no doubt about it; the game lacked quality but there were a lot of circumstances for that, the conditions etc. pushed it that way. Quite often as coaches we say that the performance is more important than the result but that was definitely not the case last Friday! 
“As soon as we hit that ground and saw what was in front of us, we knew we just had to find a way to win. The quality will follow on the back of the weather turning and that’s a fact.  I think every side is suffering from that at the minute.”

Unbeaten Wigan are next up for the Bulls at Grattan Stadium, and McNamara is relishing the challenge.

He added: “We are ready for the game and hopefully the weather will stay fine and we can play some good football and, on the back of the World Club Challenge last week and seeing what was on offer there, we are all looking forward to getting out there and getting Super League going strong again.”
