Danny Bridge on board for another month at Bradford Bulls

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Danny Bridge in action against Castleford at the start of his Bulls loan spell Danny Bridge in action against Castleford at the start of his Bulls loan spell

Danny Bridge has given the Bulls a major boost by extending his loan at the club into a second month.

The Warrington back-rower joined Francis Cummins’ squad last month and has featured in all four games so far this season.

He made his debut off the bench against Castleford and has started the last three matches against Wakefield, London and Hull FC.

After a number of impressive displays, the 21-year-old younger brother of former Bulls star Chris Bridge will now gain more game-time over the next four weeks.

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

“He has played a key role in our back row, making his presence known during some big games.

“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 (head coach) Tony Smith and (owner) Simon Moran for all of their assistance throughout this period.”

Anthony Mullally is not eligible to face parent club Huddersfield next Sunday but Cummins is aiming to secure the Giants prop on an extended loan.

On-loan Wigan prop Greg Burke is due to see a specialist today about the shoulder injury he sustained during Friday’s defeat at Hull FC.

Meanwhile, the Bulls could go into Sunday’s home showdown with Huddersfield with new owners as administrator David Wilson edges closer towards finding a buyer.

Leeds-based Wilson is working closely with the Rugby Football League and the deadline for all prospective buyers to make a bid is Thursday.

Blake Solly, the governing body’s director of licensing and standards, said there was “a handful” of interested parties.

Solly told the T&A: “We’ve had a number of very productive discussions with the administrator and everyone is working to conclude the sale process as quickly as possible.

“I’m certainly very optimistic about the future of the club because the interest in taking it on from the administrator during the past week has been really heartening.

“There has certainly been more interest in the Bulls now than there was in 2012 during the club’s previous spell in administration.”

Among the interested parties are groups led by London-based businessman Richard Lamb, representatives of Bradford City, a Bradford Park Avenue-led consortium and former owner Omar Khan.

Solly also confirmed that if a new owner came in and paid off all creditors in full, the Bulls could launch an unprecedented appeal to win back the six points they had deducted as punishment for entering administration.

“There is an appeal process whereby a sporting sanctions appeal panel is set up by the RFL and that includes one of our independent tribunal chairmen and an insolvency practitioner,” explained Solly.

“They would hear the case put forward by the club and make a decision on any appeal. Amongst other things, they would assess whether the administration was avoidable.”

The Bulls’ under-19s side overcame a 20-point deficit to beat Hull 28-26 in a thrilling clash on Saturday to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Tries from Ross Oakes (2), Joe Buggle, Alex Mellor and Adam Brook, who kicked four goals, proved the difference for Richard Tunningley’s men.

Because we have a decimated playing staff. We operate at about half the wage budget of some other teams and because if we come out of special measures we can bolster our squad with signings that aren't simply one month loans.
It's important that we give ourselves as good a chance as possible if staying up because if we do, we will be operating at the same level as all the other teams in terms of sky money. This will prove important. The relegated sides will find if almost impossible to return to superleague, because the new structure whilst entertaining is for longer, heavily favours what will be current superleague sides.
I fervently hope that the creditors are laid in full and we can make a push for our deducted points to be reinstated.

Seeing as the 6 point deduction and special measures were imposed based on the BB2014 bid shouldn't that be withdrawn then any future punishment be based on the potential buyers new bid/repayment of creditors ?

The strange situation is that when the Neonrain (Sic) subsidiary company (SLE) made a bid for the Bulls in 2012, they (RFL) never made any offer to pay off the debts?
But yes it is the moral obligation, we have let too many people down in the past. And the Bulls do not want to be known as a "Phoenix" organisation.
Of course if it happens we as supporters still can't do anything about it, can we?
Good news about Bridges though, he looks a good player.

The Hull chairman said the other night he was in full support with the punishment handed out to the Bulls. There will be many other clubs feeling the same way but not as vocal as others.

If it was organised properly I would contribute to paying off the debts in some sort of fan based appeal but unlike last time when we all dug deep but never saw where the money went. Plus if we get even two points back it would be a bonus and money well donated. Strange comments from the RL especially telling us before anything is in place.

Instead of Khan bidding on the Club maybe he just pay off the debts that are mainly down to him and Whitcut (who has resurfaced at the Listers Hotel if any Bulls fan wants to pop in and thank him for what he did to the Club).

I cannot see what City would get out of it especially as they had to sell a player recently? BPA could relocate to Odsal and that would give dual use to the stadium and not forgetting reuniting the two teams.

I just wish the Administrator and the RFL would get their finger out so the lads have some stability back off the field.

I wouldn't get carried away by all this talk of scrubbing the points deduction if we pay our debts. All the RFL have said is that if we do clear our debts then we can appeal. If history is anything to go by I think that having cleared our debts, then the appeal would fail. If the RFL were to state in writing that the points deduction would be cancelled should we pay up, then that's another matter. I wouldn't trust them as they are clearly not fit for purpose.

True comment, I just think further to this that it could be a very crafty ploy by the RFL to get the bills paid and maybe knock off two points penalty. Which would then bring us in line with the usual Administration punishment.

Bradford City, Park Ave and Omar Khan are surly non starters. The RFL overlooked all three last month and the bid from Richard Lamb in favour of the bid from Moore, Calvert and Witt. The RFL then told us the bid they regarded as the best was full of holes and a non starter. They even put out a press statement telling us how bad it was

If the bid was that bad and it still rated higher than BCFC, Bfd PA, Omar Khan's or Mr Lambs' how can the RFL be even considering their bids again?

The answer is they make their own rules up as they go along. there's no chance of them reversing the six points penalty. I would't be surprised if they take the £300,000 loan to Wakefield back so that they are found to have bridged the salary cap and deduct them 6 points to save Catalan from relegation

Does anyone trust the RFL? Yes TVOR, I know the Bulls have caused their own problems, but do even you trust the judgement of the RFL

All of these were on the table before and the Moore and co offer was deemed to be the best by both the administrator and the RFL.

Why are they none starters? again you show how clueless you are. Bradford city are the only bid that will save the club by playing at Valley parade. The only details to sort out is what happens to Odsal. The only reason the others were over looked last time round was the fact the Moore & co were already in place & made assurances & promises that turned out to be false.

Bradford City will take over our club why do you think the RFL are propping us up at the moment? Odsal is a money pit that needs a fortune spending on it the RFL want rid of it along with the council. The Bulls will only survive by moving out of Odsal.

The RFL do not make their own rules Bulls when into Admin owing a fortune with no legitimate plan to pay back their creditors so we suffered a 6 point deduction fair & square. There is no evidence whatsoever that Wakey have breached any salary cap its just pure speculation from idiots like you.

RFL have a different agenda to the ones all Bulls fans would like to see.
Completely wrong in my view.

The RFL didn't sell the club to Bulls 2014, the administrator did. The Bulls 2014 decided that the sanctions imposed by the RFL were too strict and baled out. The RFL then put out a statement saying that the deal was full of holes but they weren't the ones who had seen that as the best deal in the first place.

The job of the administrator is to get the best deal he can for the creditors of the failed business. Because of a lack of assets to sell off this means that he will try sell the club as a going concern rather than shutting it down.

Why are they none starters? again you show how clueless you are. Bradford city are the only bid that will save the club by playing at Valley parade. The only details to sort out is what happens to Odsal. The only reason the others were over looked last time round was the fact the Moore & co were already in place & made assurances & promises that turned out to be false.

Bradford City will take over our club why do you think the RFL are propping us up at the moment? Odsal is a money pit that needs a fortune spending on it the RFL want rid of it along with the council. The Bulls will only survive by moving out of Odsal.

The RFL do not make their own rules Bulls when into Admin owing a fortune with no legitimate plan to pay back their creditors so we suffered a 6 point deduction fair & square. There is no evidence whatsoever that Wakey have breached any salary cap its just pure speculation from idiots like you.
If the RFL do not make up their own rules, then who does?
They are a private organisation not governed by the laws of the land. The only thing I am certain of is that they do make up their own rules up and they keep changing the rules to suit their argument
BCFC don't even own valley parade can't see what relevance the Bulls playing there will have for them. Think the Bulls pay £70,000 per year at odsal. They owner of Valley Parade would probably want £500,000 for us to play there.
That being said if any new owners could negotiate a decent long term deal that the club could afford it would make more sense than playing at Odsal.
Surprised Halifax RLC haven't put a bid in. They could merge the clubs and get SL status.Play 7 games at the Shay and rent valley parade for the other 4 games. (11 home games next year) Would have a decent amateur base of clubs to work with and a decent area to draw sponsorship from. Halifax Bulls RLFC one shirt blue and white, the other Red Amber and Black. lets face neither clubs seems to have the finances to compete at the top of SL as things stand at the moment

Or we could merge with Catalans take their money and their best players then kick them out. A bit like Hull did with Gateshead and Huddersfield did with Sheffield.
Can't quite remember how the RFL punished them at the time. perhaps Ralph Rimmer or Blake Solly could get back to us on that one once they amended the rule book
