Bradford to pay salaries of players after delay


The players at Bradford Bulls will receive their wages for this month in the next 24 hours, according to administrator Brendan Guilfoyle.

There had been fears that the cash-strapped Stobart Super League club would not be able to meet their financial commitments as they continue to look for a buyer.

But, while Guilfoyle does admit to a minor delay in the transferring of funds, he expects the players to be paid imminently.

He said: "We alerted the players to the fact that their wages might not be paid on time because our funding at the moment is coming from Super League (Europe). However, the players will be getting their wages today or tomorrow."

Meanwhile, Hull Kingston Rovers forward James Green and Castleford back Jamie Ellis will miss games with Wakefield and St Helens respectively this weekend after accepting one-match bans following incidents in the last round of fixtures.
