HEAD COACH Francis Cummins has handed debuts to two of his Bradford Bulls for this afternoon’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup visit of Oldham (kick-off 2.00pm).
New signing Jamal Fakir (pictured), who arrived during midweek, will appear for the first time from the interchange bench.
And Scotland World Cup star Dale Ferguson is to make his competitive debut for the club, having featured only once previously – during a pre-season friendly.
The pair are set to add power to the Bradford pack during today’s fourth-round contest, with Cummins’ side aiming to book their place in the competition’s last 16.
Brett Kearney, Sam Wood, Adrian Purtell, Adam Henry and Elliot Kear make up the Bulls backline, with Danny Addy joining Luke Gale in the havles.
Lining up alongside Ferguson in the back row are James Donaldson and Matty Blythe, with Manase Manuokafoa, Adam O’Brien and Chev Walker starting up front.
Jamie Foster returns following a fortnight on the sidelines and is joined on the bench by Fakir, Oliver Roberts and Nathan Conroy.
