Bulls extend Bridge loan deal

Bradford have extended the loan of Warrington forward Danny Bridge for another month but may lose the services of Anthony Mullally.

The 21-year-old Bridge's initial spell came to an end after he played his fourth game for the Bulls at Hull on Friday but he has been given permission by Wolves coach Tony Smith to extend his stay at Odsal.

"Danny has done really well for us so far and we are delighted to have him on board for a further month," said Bradford coach Francis Cummins.

"We believe he is developing with further Super League game time under his belt and expect more of the same in the weeks ahead.

"I really want to thank Warrington's Tony Smith and (owner) Simon Moran for all of their assistance throughout this period."

Ireland international Mullally has appeared in Bradford's last three matches as part of his loan spell from Huddersfield but will not be allowed to face his parent club on Sunday.

His stint expires after the weekend and the Bulls are expected to enter talks with the Giants over a possible extension.

Cummins will also check on the fitness of Wigan forward Greg Burke, their other loan recruit, after he damaged a shoulder in the 44-16 defeat at Hull.

Meanwhile, developments are expected this week on the club's ownership saga.

It is thought there are five potential buyers including London-based businessman Richard Lamb, who has confirmed on Twitter that he will meet the administrator's Thursday deadline to finalise his bid.
