To be singled out by the coach for mountains of praise can only mean that you had a stellar game, and for former NRL utility Jarrod Sammut, he did indeed have a cracker of a game – with Bradford Bulls coach Francis Cummins praising Sammut for his special performance in the 46-20 win over the London Broncos.
“When Jarrod is on his game like he was today, there are not many players in this league that can do what he does. I would happily have paid to see him play like he did today,” said Cummins.
“The trick for him though, is to produce this type of performance week in, week out – and do it for 80 minutes. Having said that, he is a special player and we are happy to have him.
“Overall. I am delighted – for us to come out of Easter with five points is a great effort on our part.”
For the Broncos, Tony Rea admits that when push came to shove, his side failed to implement the correct attitude to make a fist of things and it ultimately cost them.
“You are only in a contest if you are part of it. When we were challenged by Bradford today, we were not up to the task and that is an attitude thing,” said Rea.
“We lost control of ourselves in the second half and when Bradford ran at us, we could not match them physically.
“They controlled the game in the right areas and they won the battles that needed to be won.”
