BULLS have been making the most of their dual-registration partnership with Leeds this season, but they won't be getting Tom Holroyd back any time soon.

The 21-year-old Rhinos forward was sent off for punching during Bulls' win over Newcastle on May 21, and last night was hit with a 10-game ban by an independent disciplinary tribunal.

The Match Review Panel came down hard on Holroyd after he had been hit by a Grade F Punching Charge.

The lengthy suspension means he will now be unable to play until August.

Newcastle's Jake Shorrocks was sent off for his part in the same incident, but his offence was downgraded from F to E, so he has only received a five-match ban.

Holroyd may be out of the picture, but interim head coach Mark Dunning has brought another Leeds player into the squad for tomorrow's clash at Widnes, with Muizz Mustapha making his way over from Headingley.
