REBORN Bradford have been hit and miss so far in 2013.
The four times Super League champions went into administration at the end of June, which led to the redundancies of 16 members of staff, including the entire coaching team.
The off-field staff then returned voluntarily in dramatic circumstances.
And despite losing six points for entering administration, the Bulls’ players didn’t let the economic uncertainty affect their on-field performance, with the club only missing out on the top eight on the last day of the season.
After stability returned, the Bulls then began this campaign like a house on fire, with a surprising 40-6 landslide victory over Wakefield.
A defeat away to Hull brought them back down to earth, but an impressive win against Castleford saw them bounce back.
However, an abject performance against Nathan Brown’s St Helens prove another wake-up call.
Play-off participation has been the goal set once again for the Bulls, with the former multiple world club champions failing to participate in the end-of-season knock-out rounds for the past four years.
And they will be looking to keep in the hunt with another victory at the John Smith Stadium, where they brushed past the Giants 34-12 in their last clash.
