ELLIOT Kear could be set for a cross-code switch to London Welsh after scoring for the Aviva Premiership outfit in a pre-season game on Saturday.

The Bulls winger ran in one of 10 tries in a 64-0 win at Henley Hawks as the Oxford-based club gear up for their return to the top flight following last season's promotion.

Kear was given permission by Bradford to play for Justin Burnell's side and it remains to be seen whether he will earn a permanent deal.

Bulls managing director Steve Ferres said Cardiff-born Kear, 25, and several other players were due to speak to head coach Jimmy Lowes today about their future.

Ferres said: "We allowed Elliot to play in the trial game so he could look at his options.

"He will meet with the coach to discuss his future today along with a number of other players."

Kear has impressed at Odsal since arriving from Crusaders ahead of the 2012 campaign.

London Welsh's next friendly match is against London Wasps at Adams Park on Sunday and their first Premiership match is at home to Exeter on Sunday, September 7.

Not too much of a great loss to be honest,
Along with a few other in the present squad,
I know I would much rather have him running at me the ETU!

He has been a consistent, above average player who always gives his best. Has a bad habit of running across field. I wish him all the best if he does go, but not a massive loss. Noticed ainscough playing on the wing for Whitehaven on boots n all.
