Bradford Bulls handed six-point penalty

Bradford Bulls have been deducted six points as punishment for entering administration last month.

The RFL said their decision ‘follows a full assessment of the circumstances surrounding the club’s administration, which followed a similar insolvency event by Bradford Bulls in June 2012’.

The points will be deducted immediately, leaving the West Yorkshire outfit bottom of Super League on -4 for the season.
