Bulls Eye

In this week's Bulls Eye, Brian Noble looks ahead to Wednesday's rearranged Teteley's Super League Round 8 game in London between the Broncos and the Bulls.

BRIAN NOBLE:

LONDON IS ALWAYS A TOUGH ASK FOR THE BULLS.

I have been here for eight years and I have never known a game against London that hasn?t been tough. They are a very well drilled professional out fit and it?s fair to say it is not the best preparation having to play them midweek but that is the hand we have been dealt and London have had a tough run of fixtures and have managed to keep going without looking for excuses and that is how we will approach the game.

A lot of people would say London are a team without stars but that is not how I see it. They have some big stars, people like Denis Moran, Jim Dymock, Chris Thorman, are all up there and when you look at their pack, with people like Steele Retchless in it, you realise why they are a very difficult side to beat. The Auckland Warriors have taken a fancy to Tony Martin and they have speed and quality on their flanks, including Paul Sykes who started here and is a very, very good player.

We have tried to keep the players fresh this week as well as keeping their minds on what they need to do. We know we are in for a difficult few days but we will cope with it.
