Huddersfield prop could extend loan deal at Bradford

Bradford are hopeful of extending the loan deal of Huddersfield prop Anthony Mullally, after his spell at the Bulls came to an end last week.

Mullally was actually ineligible to face his parent club last weekend, but both clubs are believed to be keen to extend the stay of the Ireland international at Odsal – with Bradford’s squad in dire need of the numbers.

Head coach Francis Cummins is still in need of bodies after the departures of Nick Scruton and Jarrod Sammut – combined with an injury to former Huddersfield man Dale Ferguson.

And, Giants boss Paul Anderson insists he is open to the possibility of Mullally staying out on loan at Bradford, after admitting he cannot guarantee him game time at Huddersfield.

“Anthony needs to play and get some consistent time,” said Anderson in the Huddersfield Examiner.

“The only way he’s going to get better and improve is if he’s allowed to play more time.

“If he came back here at this stage I couldn’t guarantee when and where he’d get that time.”
