Bradford Bulls missing Manase Manuokafoa and Jamal Fakir for Warrington Wolves clash
Francis Cummins will hand a debut to Joe Arundel against Warrington on Sunday but the Bulls' pack is down to the bare bones after Manase Manuokafoa and Jamal Fakir were ruled out through injury.
Arundel comes into contention after being cup-tied against Catalan Dragons last weekend and he looks certain to feature against Tony Smith's side.
But Dale Ferguson (back) and James Donaldson (ankle) have failed to recover from recent knocks and have been joined on the sidelines by front-rowers Manuokafoa and Fakir.
The props picked up injuries during last weekend's Challenge Cup win, so rookies Sam Bates, Alex Mellor and Sam Wood have been named in Cummins' 19-man squad.
Matty Blythe also remains sidelined with a knee injury that is expected to keep him out for another six weeks.
19-man squad: Danny Addy, Joe Arundel, Sam Bates, Matt Diskin, Jamie Foster, Luke Gale, Lee Gaskell, Luke George, Adam Henry, Elliot Kear, Brett Kearney, Alex Mellor, Adam O'Brien, Tom Olbison, Jay Pitts, Adrian Purtell, Adam Sidlow, Chev Walker, Sam Wood.
