Bradford Bulls have been in the media for the past decade for all of the wrong reasons.
The club entered administration in 2012, 2014 and 2016 due to ongoing financial issues, with a new ownership taking charge of the Bulls in 2019 after a period of uncertainty.
A return to Odsal ahead of the 2021 Championship season coincided with an exciting new era for the Bulls as head coach John Kear attempted to gain access to the promise land of the Super League once more.
The whole current buzz around the club is palpable and assistant coach Mark Dunning revealed just how well Bradford are doing off the field in a bid to make it back to the big time on the field.
“We’ve had our well documented issues,” Dunning told West Yorkshire Radio Rugby League.
“Since the current ownership regime came in those issues have stabilised no end – we now have a stable club.
“For the last two years people have been paid on time and accurately – there’s no outstanding money from a supplier issue that I know about.”
Dunning was also keen to stress that the Bulls are striving to improve relations that have been hampered during the period of financial crisis.
“The club are doing their best to build bridges and relationships with those that have been burned.
“As a club it’s everybody’s responsibility and it’s something we will keep endeavouring to be better at.
“The whole culture of the club has improved and I think we will improve on that in the years to come.”
