Head Coach Jon Sharp has confirmed that major pre season signing Robbie Paul will partner England captain Chris Thorman in the halves on Sunday for the big pre season warm up game versus the Bulls (kick off 3pm). Sharp has named a 19 man squad but has confirmed the starting half back partners.
Sharp commented "I am sure that our fans want to see Robbie in action along with the other new boys and after a great week in camp I can confirm that he starts the game alongside Chris Thorman. I have picked 19 players for this game including five of our new signings. I know that the Bulls will be strong too and am sure Stanley Gene is looking forward to his return so I'd echo the clubs views earlier in the week and say to all the supporters get down to the Galpharm on Sunday as it is a game which is very important to us in our build up to Super League XI"
