16th January 2014

Bradford Bulls head coach Francis Cummins has included a quartet of new signings as part of a 24-man squad to face Hull FC this weekend.

Lee Gaskell, Adam Henry, Garreth Carvell and Luke George, who have each spent the past three months in pre-season training alongside their Provident Stadium colleagues, are all in-line to debut this weekend as the Bulls make their first appearance of the year.

Also featuring in the friendly action are Rugby League World Cup stars Elliot Kear and Danny Addy, who each impressed during last year's tournament for Wales and Scotland respectively.

Boss Cummins has named a strong squad for Sunday's clash, which is scheduled to get underway at 3pm.

A host of young talent is also to appear, with rising stars Alex Mellor, Oliver Roberts, Nathan Conroy, Sam Wood and under-19s ace Adam Brook all in the frame, as well as Warrington Wolves loanees James Saltonstall and Joe Philbin.
