Bulls to unveil Cummins replacement


23rd June 2014

Bradford Bulls will name their new coach on Tuesday morning.

The club said on Monday afternoon that Francis Cummins' successor would be announced at a media conference at 9.30am.

Cummins lost his job a week ago to the tune of much criticism, with the former Leeds Rhinos man having worked amid dire financial problems at the Bulls.

The club's owners decided that results were not good enough, though, and parted company with him as relegation to the Championship draws closer.

Dire defeats to Salford Red Devils - before Cummins' axe - and to Hull KR mean they are on the brink of going down after failing to recover from a six-point deduction for going into administration.

Former hooker James Lowes - coach of union side Leeds Carnegie - ex-Bull Glenn Morrison and veteran John Kear are thought to be in the runnning for the job.
