LIAM Kirk, Matty Storton and Mikey Wood have all been named in the Bulls' 19-man squad for their Good Friday clash at Halifax.

The trio were rested for the stunning 27-26 win over Featherstone Rovers last Sunday and look poised to return for the Showdown At The Shay - with Kear's side doing battle with Halifax in competitive action for the first time since 2017.

Matty Garside, James Green and George Flanagan make way in the Championship clash - with the latter undergoing an operation for a broken thumb and looking set for a six-week lay off.
