BRADFORD Bulls have re-signed Liam Kirk and Ross Oakes until the end of 2019.

The duo have played crucial roles this season after graduating through the Bulls’ thriving academy set up.

Prop forward Kirk has been the only ever-present this year, scoring three tries, with two of them coming against recently promoted Hull KR.

Centre Oakes has been hampered by numerous injuries since mid-May, but has scored nine tries in 17 first-team appearances.
