JON Magrin could be on his way back to the Bulls even though no deal has been done.

The squad return to Tong on Monday to begin their pre-season fitness programme. But Magrin's position is yet to be confirmed during a heavy period of recruitment for 2018.

The 23-year-old, who can play at prop and loose forward, is still thought to be in the club's plans. Discussions are understood to have taken place but nothing has been agreed so far.

Maltese-born Magrin, who played 25 games in the Championship, recently made his first appearance for Jamaica alongside Ross Peltier and Omari Caro in their 34-12 loss in France.

Meanwhile, Brandan Wilkinson will use the World Cup as a shop window after failing to earn a new contract at Odsal.

Scotland coach Steve McCormack is set to hand the young prop his Bravehearts debut against New Zealand in Christchurch tomorrow.

McCormack has been impressed with the youngster's attitude as they bid to restore some pride following a 50-4 thrashing by Tonga in last week's group opener.

But Wilkinson is on the look-out for a new club for 2018. He made 17 appearances for the Bulls last season, scoring one try, but they have allowed his present deal to run out.

Toronto Wolfpack were thought to have shown an interest earlier in the year but that has not been followed up.

It has been confirmed that the League One fixtures will be published on November 15.

The Super League and Championship schedules for next season came out on Wednesday.

But the third tier was delayed until it was confirmed that Gloucestershire All Golds and Oxford were both withdrawing from the competition ahead of their 2019 merger in Bristol.
