L'Estrange out for the season


14th August 2013

Bradford Bulls hooker and co-captain Heath L'Estrange will miss the rest of the season after learning he needs a knee operation.

L'Estrange, one of only two ever-presents so far this year, picked up the injury in Sunday's 23-22 home Super League defeat by Catalan Dragons and will undergo surgery tomorrow.

Bulls coach Francis Cummins said: "It's a blow losing Heath at this stage of the season but the injury is not as bad as we thought at the time.

"Heath will be fit again to fully start pre-season training when the players report back."
