Veteran Bradford-based prop Steve Pryce – who has still been turning out with West Bowling A – heads to Jamaica this weekend after becoming assistant coach for the national team.

Pryce, the cousin of former Bulls Leon and Karl, is helping out new Jamaica boss Dean Thomas and they pay their first visit to the island under their new roles on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the continued expansion and interest in rugby league, on the back of the success of the World Cup, has seen the European Federation advertise development officer posts for Jamaica and Germany.
