Menzies' symptoms remain a mystery
Bradford are still unsure whether Australian forward, Steve Menzies, is suffering from swine flu.
Menzies was sent home before the match at the Celtic Crusaders, showing all the signs of the illness. But the club's football manager, Stuart Duffy, said: "We may never know exactly what it was." Bulls' stand-off Ben Jefferies is set to join the Crusaders next season after taking his wife to see the area at weekend. Brian Noble, whose future at Wigan remains uncertain, is strongly rumoured to take over as coach of the Welsh club. Paul Wood of Warrington and Leeds' Danny Buderus are unlikely to play again this season after breaking bones in their legs. Castleford's plans to sign Tony Martin and Brad Drew from Wakefield are under threat from overseas quota restrictions. Dave Hadfield
