Ferres denies Brierley approach

Bradford Bulls managing director Steve Ferres says the club has not made any bid for Leigh halfback Ryan Brierley.

The Bulls have been drawn into the unfolding saga between the Centurions and the player, when they were named in Leigh’s statement on Brierley’s suspension on Friday night. But Ferres says any interest has not extended beyond a brief chat with the player’s agent Craig Harrison.

Ferres told League Express: “I speak to Craig Harrison about players that we have that are with him, and it’s known that Ryan is with Craig as well.

“I asked to keep us in touch with the situation, but stressed to Craig that we would not be making any offer until the situation regarding the clause in his contract had been resolved.”
