BULLS head coach John Kear insisted there would be less players in his squad than the 27 he used against Swinton last weekend.

And he has stuck to his word, though there are still 24 names for him to pick from against Keighley at Dewsbury tomorrow.

The headline news is the inclusion of utility back Jack Sanderson, who goes straight into the squad after his signing was confirmed yesterday morning.

Rhys Evans makes his return to the side, with the Wales international having missed the Swinton clash with a hamstring injury.

But Sam Hallas (hand), Anthony England (knee), Aaron Murphy (knock) and Matthew Race (knock) are all still out.

Trialists Anthony Walker and Brad Calland retain their places in the squad, with both pushing for a permanent Bulls contract.

Jordan Lilley is named in the 24-man squad, with his two-match ban not coming into force until next Tuesday.
