OK, I like Bustin - but looking at the squad list, we currently have 8 other props

8 Liam Kirk
10 Steven Crossley
17 Ross Peltier
19 Mikey Wood
28 James Davies
30 Jamal Goodhall
31 Oliver Wilson
34 Jordan Andrade

Should be fine :)


That was my point on the other thread. If Davies, Goodhall, Wilson & Andrade turn out for the reserves midweek, Wilson won’t be able to play for the 19’s that week and none of the 4 of them can turn out for the first team.

I think we may be having a discussion with our DR partners soon about props. They have 7 first team props, but only 1 team for them to play in, and I vaguely remember the initial announcement mentioned getting access to our reserves

I think you're misunderstanding the point of having a reserve team. Surely it is to prepare players for first team action, not simply for its own sake?

I couldn't care less if the Reserve team have to play a weakened team, maybe by bringing in some props from Dudley Hill or West Bowling. Who cares if the Reserves lose a match or two? So long as the First Team is supplied with fit, ready players from our squad.

Also the Reserves don't play every week, far from it. We don't have a reserves game now until July 5th, and the next one after that is July 28th. See http://www.bradfordbulls.co.uk/article/ ... announced-

100% agreed. No easy games in Cumbria, they will play it like their cup final and IMO this run of playing the "weaker" teams has IMO seen one or two bad habits creeping in. Can't afford make the same number of handling errors e .g.Skolars, Newcastle & Hemel and certainly no sin-bins for talking back to the ref.

I agree. Haven have already beaten York so it's clear they're a decent outfit but I hope we've learnt from our last trip to Cumbria.

Good point about us picking up bad habits against the weaker teams. We'll be in for a shock when we play a better side.

I too think we'll see some incomers in upcoming weeks.

It's weird, this 'learning lessons' business.

I'm sure that even I knew, and I'm talking about when JK was still a nipper, that 'Cumbrians teams always play well at home', as well, of course, as being notoriously slack away from home - with the 'long journey' invariably being to blame..... These are all long known traits/truisms/sayings or whatever you want to call them, but for some strange reason the 'lesson' has to be relearnt every season.
Why?

Well yeah fair enough, but I thought that was why we always have the odd 'senior player or two' (aka, a little past their sell-by-date) in the side? If one or two, (no names, no pack drill) aren't there to pass on their collected wisdom to the young guns, then what is the point of them being there?, we may as well bring in the youngsters and let them learn on the hop whilst making use of their undoubted speed and enthusiasm, and, then at least, we would have an actual, real excuse for not knowing about the Cumbrians strange ways and that the Bulls are likely to be a target, etc, ad infinitum.

Seems like Reiss has accepted a 1 match ban for foul and abusive language to a match official.
