IT’S been all change at Bradford Bulls for Super League XVI, with a new head coach in Mick Potter and a total of TEN new senior signings.
And with two wins from their opening four fixtures – and a heartbreaking controversial last-ditch defeat to Leeds Rhinos in the opening-day of the season in Cardiff – it looks as if Potter could already be working some magic.
Bradford were always going to be affected by the departure after just one season of star Australian scrum half Matt Orford, who failed to settle in the country.
But they have certainly replaced him with some impressive personnel.
Leading the way are former Leeds hooker Matt Diskin, St Helens prop Bryn Hargreaves, Catalans back-rower Olivia Elima and Hull KR centre Chev Walker.
They have also brought in two quality overseas signings in utility back Patrick Ah Van from New Zealand Warriors and Canberra half-back Marc Herbert.
Obviously, with so many new arrivals, it’s going to take the new-look Bulls a bit of time to gel.
But having demolished Wakefield 40-18 at Odsal on Sunday, things are starting to fall into place.
