Brett Kearney and Ben Jeffries returned to the starting line-up as the Bulls sought victory over Widnes to keep their play-off hopes alive.

Both men were fit to return after missing last weekend’s defeat against Warrington with knocks, meaning there was no place for Jarrod Sammut while Danny Addy dropped to the bench.

Craig Kopczak, who made an impressive return to action after injury off the bench against Warrington, was named as a starting prop along with Bryn Hargreaves.

Bulls: Kearney, Ainscough, Platt, Lulia, Pryce, Jeffries, Gale, Hargreaves, L’Estrange, Kopczak, Whitehead, Olbison, Langley

Interchange: Burgess, Addy, Manuokafoa, Walker
