Your Say

Alan Wilkinson says: Michael Withers was so important to Bradford Bulls. He was known as Mr Reliable. I appreciated his skill as a rugby player so much that I bought a Bulls shirt with ‘Withers 6’ on the back. I’ve just thrown it away as it was falling apart. I now live in Melbourne, Australia, and am a Premier Club Member at Melbourne Storm. (27/04/2019)
