UK visas approved for overseas league players
The Bradford Bulls have two new players after high-profile signings Heath L’Estrange and Brett Kearney had their UK visa applications approved.
The third signing and fellow Australian Glenn Hall is expected to receive his UK visa within a week.
The delay in Hall’s UK visa was due to a change in his family circumstances, as initially his wife wasn’t going to travel over with him but now she will be.
L’Estrange, Kearney and Hall should be able to join the Bulls squad for pre-season training during the next fortnight.
Sports commentators are calling the news a boost for the club.
