Bulls Eye - Round 9

In Bulls Eye this week coach Brian Noble looks ahead to Sunday's Engage Super League Round 9 game at Halliwell Jones Stadium as the Bulls travel across the Pennines to take on the Warrington Wolves. BRIAN NOBLE;

WARRINGTON TRADITIONALLY CAUSE THE BULLS A FEW PROBLEMS AT THE HALLIWELL JONES STADIUM

They do. Last season we managed to scrape a draw when we had been well behind in the first game and in the second game over there we got a win with the last kick of the match after being behind with only a couple of minutes to go.

They are very good side and their league position belies what a good side they are. They played very well last week and were unlucky to lose at Headingley. They have recruited very well across the park and in Martin Gleeson they have probably got one of the best three centres in the world. He can play inside or outside and he has great feet. They also have Lee Briers and Nathan Wood at half back who are very dangerous and a good solid pack who take them forward. They are a very well coached and dangerous side who have grit and determination and we will also be up against a couple of our old boys in Logan Swann and Chris Bridge who will be looking for good game against us.

We need to kick on from where we left off at Featherstone. We did all that was asked of us there and we need to carry on in the same vein this week. We have trained well and could have some players retuning and we need to start positively and be patient in what we do.
