In the early days of the Meatworks the team was made up predominantly from workers at the local meatworks site plus tradesmen. Even after they changed to the Bulls they still maintained their "workers" tradition with most of the team made up of tradesmen, apprentices labourers and service workers.
They also have a tradition of letting tourists have games. These people, usually only in Broome for a couple of months, would extend their holiday so that they could stay with the team. This means that the Bulls lose 10-15 players each year. Even with such a high turnover of players, the club has been very successful, winning 14 Premierships (including 2 three-in-a-rows 1962,1963,1964 and 1997,1998,1999).
The Bulls had a forgettable 1994 season with the lowest point being when the playing captain/coach John Webb gave up and went home midway through a game. The coaching role was taken over by Sergeant Andy McRae.
