Francis Cummins hails win as Bradford defy chaos
Sunday 02 March 2014
Francis Cummins highlighted the gutsy performance of his emerging forwards and praised the “character” of his squad after beleaguered Bradford defied another week of off-field turmoil to claim their second win in three matches.
The Bulls, who were docked six points for entering administration in midweek and lost a prospective buyer, scored four tries as they beat fellow strugglers London Broncos 25-12 yesterday.
Cummins, whose side stay bottom, two points adrift, said: “There’s no question about the spirit among the players. We have to show character and find a way to win. The stuff that those players have had to put up with – just when we think we were getting somewhere, something else happens.”
Wigan coach Shaun Wane was delighted with the way his side bounced back from their World Club Challenge defeat for a 46-24 win over Wakefield, their first of the season. “We weren’t at our best but we got the two points so I’m very happy. It was a good day’s work,” Wane said.
