Bradford chasing Featherstone forward

Bradford Bulls are being linked with a move for Featherstone forward Connor Farrell.

TotalRL understands the former Wigan youngster is on John Kear’s wishlist for 2019 as the Bulls look to further strengthen their squad ahead of their return to the Championship.

Farrell, 24, made an impression for Rovers last year and was an ever-present before missing three months of the season with a broken leg.

He returned for the club’s successful Championship Shield campaign and ultimately made 25 appearances last season, scoring nine tries.

However, he could be set to move across West Yorkshire next year, with the Bulls keen to land Farrell, the brother of Wigan forward, Liam.

The Bulls have already made a number of additions to their pack, with Callum Bustin, Mikey Wood and James Green signing permanent deals, while Jon Magrin will return to the club.

Jake Webster, Dee Foggin-Johnston, Matty Wildie and Jy Hitchcox have also agreed to join the club as they put together a strong squad for next season.
