Rohan Smith has recalled Kurt Haggerty to the Bradford Bulls 19 man squad as they prepare for Monday’s game with Dewsbury Rams.
The 27-year-old returns to the team as Steve Crossley is ruled out with an injury.
Another man who comes into the team is Josh Rickett. The U19 player replaces James Bentley who made his debut during last weeks 82-0 win over Oldham.
The Dewsbury Rams come into this game without Paul Sykes and Joel Farrell. The pair will miss Monday’s game through suspension while Nathan Conroy could return after a spell out with a foot injury.
The Rams have the edge over the Bulls this season, winning two of the three fixtures. It all started in March when the Rams beat Bradford 31-30 to knock them out of the cup.
A month later, the Bulls got their retribution when they earned a 18-52 win in the Championship. The last encounter between these two sides came in June when Dewsbury shocked the Bulls by winning 14-16 at Odsal.
