Arundel: Bulls have chance regardless of appeal result

On-loan Hull FC centre Joe Arundel insists Bradford Bulls have a chance of staying up even if Wednesday’s points appeal is unsuccessful.

The Odsal outfit were docked six points for entering administration over Christmas but their appeal will be heard tomorrow. It is unknown whether or not any points will be restored, but Arundel, who is on a season-long loan with the Bulls, doesn’t think it matters.

He told the Telegraph and Argus: “Hopefully the points appeal will go our way but, with the squad we now have available, we’re more than capable of moving up the ladder anyway. We definitely plan on doing that.

“If the points appeal doesn’t go our way then there are plenty of games left to make up the gap and put our destiny in our own hands.

“Keeping Bradford in Super League is a big priority and you just can’t imagine the competition without a club with this much history.”
