Kear calls for special measures issues to be sorted out

Bradford coach John Kear has called for a swift resolution to the club’s current financial situation as the Bulls continue to struggle in special measures.

The RFL confirmed the club’s status following the announcement that they will move to Dewsbury next season, meaning the Bulls cannot sign new players of retain current ones.

After previously stating they have 14 contracted players for 2020, Kear urged the club to get the issue resolved quickly to enable him to plan for next year.

“That’s up to our owner and administration to make sure they work with the RFL for us to come out of there,” he told he Yorkshire Post’s Dave Craven.

“That’s because obviously we need to sign some players for next year.

“We need to retain players as well but we only have 14 players signed up and I want to run with a squad of 22 or 23.

“We really do need to nail this special measures stuff and get out of it.”
