Manase Manuokafoa is in line to make his Bulls debut after being named in the 19-man squad for Saturday’s home clash with leaders Warrington.
The giant prop, signed from Parramatta on a one-year deal, tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a training session shortly before Christmas.
But he played in last week’s Under-20s game against Wakefield and may feature against Warrington in tonight’s Under-20s clash as he steps up his match fitness ahead of Saturday’s Super League clash.
Olivier Elima, Adam O’Brien and Tom Olbison remain long-term injury absentees while Luke Gale will be sidelined for the next six to eight weeks and Chev Walker misses out again due to a hamstring strain.
Bulls squad: Addy, Bateman, Burgess, Crookes, Diskin, Hargreaves, Jeffries, Joseph, Kear, Kearney, Kopczak, Langley, L'Estrange, Lulia, Manuokafoa, Platt, Sammut, Scruton, Whitehead
