Bulls announce WCC squad

Super League Champions, Bradford Bulls, have today announced a 19-man squad for the Carnegie World Club Challenge game against Wests Tigers.

New signing Chris McKenna misses out through a hamstring injury and the Bulls could give debuts to Marcus Bai, Marcus St Hilaire and Stanley Gene.

Michael Withers, Lesley Vainikolo, Joe Vagana and Stuart Fielden are seeking their third WCC win with the Bulls. All three were members of the sides that took the crown in 2002 v Newcastle Knights and 2004 v Penrith Panthers.

Marcus Bai is looking for a hat trick of wins too. He was a member of the Melbourne Storm side that defeated St Helens in 2000 and played for Leeds last year against Canterbury Bulldogs. Karl Pryce is looking to emulate his brother who was a member of the successful Bulls sides in 2002 and 2004.
