Bulls extend Bridge loan


10th March 2014

Bradford Bulls have extended the loan spell of Warrington Wolves forward Danny Bridge for another month but may lose the services of Ireland international Anthony Mullally.

The 21-year-old Bridge's initial spell came to an end after he played his fourth game for the Bulls at Hull FC on Friday but he has been given permission by Wolves coach Tony Smith to extend his stay at Odsal.

"Danny has done really well for us so far and we are delighted to have him on board for a further month," said Bradford coach Francis Cummins.

"We believe he is developing with further Super League game time under his belt and expect more of the same in the weeks ahead.

"I really want to thank Warrington's Tony Smith and (owner) Simon Moran for all of their assistance throughout this period."

Mullally has appeared in Bradford's last three First Utility Super League matches as part of his loan spell from Huddersfield Giants but will not be allowed to face his parent club on Sunday.

His stint expires after the weekend and the Bulls are expected to enter talks with the Giants over a possible extension.

Cummins will also check on the fitness of Wigan Warriors forward Greg Burke, their other loan recruit, after he damaged a shoulder in the 44-16 defeat at Hull.
