Potter calls for Bulls help
Mick Potter, ex-head coach of crisis club Bradford Bulls, has called for someone to save the club "for the sake of the fans".
Potter, who had been made redundant last week, returned voluntarily for the 44-12 demolition of London Broncos, and said he was "close to tears" at the end of the game at Odsal. One of Super League's most successful clubs with four titles, the Bulls entered financial difficulties in March and, after the fans coughed up £500,000, most thought Bradford were saved. But the hard work looks to have done little to help their plight as the club entered administration at the end of June. Head administrator Brendan Guilfoyle set a deadline of July 10 for an investor to come forward, claiming if no buyer could be found the club would face "extinction". The RFL stated that at least two parties have shown an interest in buying the club, with all fans praying a deal is in place before Tuesday's deadline. Since their last Grand Final victory in 2006, Bradford's form has worsened dramatically although this season their performances have improved and they currently sit sixth in the table. The fans will hope an investor will be found to keep the club alive so that they can enjoy many more results like the hammering of London in the future.
