Penguin is back!
Bradford Bulls legend Graeme Bradley, nicknamed Penguin, arrived in England on Saturday and dropped into Odsal yesterday.
So what brings you to England?
I work for a sports company in Australia and I have come over to see what business opportunities are available over here.
And a good excuse to come back and see some old friends?
Yeah for sure. Its great to be back here at my ?adopted? home ? I have missed it greatly. I do keep in touch with people from the Bulls but its not the same as being here and being able to see everyone.
And looking forward to Sunday?s game?
Definatley. It promises to be a good game too, with Bradford hoping to secure 3rd and Huddersfield, although they lost on Saturday night, will be looking to get some points to ensure a play-off place. Odsal looks tremendous at the moment and the Coral Stand really adds to the venue compared to the old speedway track! Im really looking forward to watching the game from the stand, as the only times I have been here, I have been playing!
Have you kept in touch with any of the Bulls players or staff to see how they have been getting on this year?
Yeah, I speak to Nobby regularly, and Tony Smith is a good friend. It was obviously very pleasing to hear about the victory at Headingley against the Rhinos a few weeks ago!
And finally, how do you see the season finishing for the Bulls?
That?s a question! When I arrived here on Sunday I watched the replay of the game against Hull on Friday night and I do think teams will want to avoid Bradford in the play offs because they are looking very sharp and fired up at the moment. Bringing Adrian Morley into the squad will only strengthen an already powerful pack, the distribution of Paul Deacon and Iestyn Harris was world-class on Friday, and what more can you say about Lesley that hasn?t been said already. As long as they stay injury-free and keep winning I realistically think the Bulls will be Old Trafford again this year.
