Bradford Bulls managing director Steve Ferres has reassured fans that there are signings in the pipeline for next season, and the club are confident they can create a side capable of bouncing straight back into Super League at the first attempt.
The Bulls are a massive 13 points from safety with eight games of the season left, and can be relegated as early as next weekend. However, with clubs such as Leigh and London already announcing signings for 2015, the Bulls are yet to declare any new signings. But Ferres has calmed fans by saying the club are working hard behind the scenes.
“Some players will want to stay if we go down and some won’t, so it’s a tough ask,” Ferres told the Telegraph and Argus.
“Other teams in the Championship have got a head start on us because they have their players in place and Leigh have been preparing for this day for two years, so there is a dearth of players.
“However, we have quietly been looking at what is available and believe we’ll be in a position to put together what we think is a competitive side challenging to get back into Super League.
“We’re hopeful that we will soon start making announcements about players being retained and new players being added to the squad.”
