The RFL has issued a statement clarifying that no official application has been made regarding Bradford’s announced move to Dewsbury.

The Bulls confirmed this evening that they have struck a deal with the Rams to play at The Tetley’s Stadium in 2020 and 2021.

But the RFL say that the move must first be approved by their Board.

The statement read: “Bradford’s request to use the Tetley’s Stadium in Dewsbury as a home ground remains subject to the approval of the RFL Board, who are charged with making a decision in the best interests of the sport.
