WALKER RETURNS FOR BULLS

11th May 2014

CHEV WALKER will today return to Bradford Bulls action, as Francis Cummins' men go in search of a third-straight victory.

St Helens provide the opposition this afternoon and head coach Cummins has been forced to reshuffle his line-up, with front-rower Manase Manuokafoa and half-back Luke Gale ruled out injured.

As a result, Danny Addy starts at stand-off, partnering Lee Gaskell in the halves.

Elliot Kear lines up at full-back, with Sam Wood, Adam Henry, Joe Arundel and Jamie Foster completing the backline. 

Skipper Matt Diskin starts at hooker, with loanee Antonio Kaufusi and Adam Sidlow appearing alongside him in the front row.

Tom Olbison and Adrian Purtell line up in the second row and Jay Pitts features at loose forward.

Joining the returning Walker on the interchange bench are Alex Mellor, Adam O'Brien and Luke George – who missed last Sunday's triumph over Warrington Wolves.

Gates are now open and those wishing to pay on the gate can do so, with admission priced at £20 (adults), £15 (concessions), £15 (students) and £10 (juniors).

Ahead of kick-off, we will be staging a two-minute tribute to those who tragically lost their lives - 29 years ago today - in the Bradford City fire.

Supporters will be invited to join us for a minute's silence, followed by a minute's applause, as we mark the anniversary and pay our respects to those who passed away and their families.

With this in mind, Bradford Bulls officials kindly ask everyone planning on attending this afternoon to be in position nice and early, prior to the game's 3.00pm start.
