Jamie Foster: I've moved on from my days at Saints
Jamie Foster is looking forward to facing his former club St Helens on Saturday and taking on a few old mates.
The Bulls' winger ended 10 years at Saints by moving across the Pennines to join Bradford ahead of the new Super League season, having struggled to hold down a first team spot at Langtree Park.
Foster joined Bradford on a one-year deal and he admits he does not hold any grudges against his former team.
He told the Telegraph and Argus: "I've got a lot of good mates there and some of the lads I'll be coming up against I've known since I was six years old.
"I've just got to be as professional as I can be about it and hopefully we'll get the right result. Don't get me wrong, the way my career started there was brilliant.
"Leaving was tough to take but it's just one of those things in professional sport.

"There are two ways of looking at it: I can hold a grudge and not move on or I can move on and just forget it.
"That's what I've done. I'm not clinging on to St Helens with any kind of hopes of returning or anything like that. I've broken away from there now and have still got a lot of respect for everyone at the club.
"But I'm not a Saints player any more, I'm a Bradford Bull, and I'm just concentrating on progressing my career here."
