Bradford Bulls aiming for 30-strong squad in 2015

Bradford Bulls managing director Steve Ferres has said the club are looking to put together a squad of 30 players for next season, as they continue to prepare for life in the Championship.

The Bulls currently have eight players on their books for next season – including four new recruits. And, speaking to the Telegraph and Argus, Ferres said the club are trying to build a “Super League squad” for the Championship, with plenty of players coming through the door to bolster numbers.

“There will be 30 players in the squad – 24 frontline players and six junior players who are already on the club’s books or new signings,” Ferres said.

“What we’re going to be able to do is put together a squad that has got competition throughout.

“There will be at least five props, at least five back-rowers, four strike centres who can also play on the wing in addition to wingers, half-backs and a full back who can rotate and cover at hooker.

“We’re going to have a squad with the ability to go through a season, injuries permitting, without additions.”
