ENGAGE Super League Champions Bradford Bulls have today that former Leeds Rhinos winger Marcus Bai will join the club for the 2006 season.
WARRIORS CEO Wayne Scurrah has announced skills coach Kevin Campion will leave the club at the end of the year.
NEW Zealand coach Brian McClennan has copied Brian Noble?s cat-and-mouse tactics by delaying naming his team announcement for Saturday?s Gillette Tri-Nations clash with Great Britain.
LESLEY Vainikolo is out of the Kiwis squad for the Gillette Tri-Nations series.
NICK Fozzard is desperately hoping to make his Great Britain debut against the Kiwis on Saturday, confident in the knowledge that he will be in good company.
KIWIS coach Brian McClennan has reacted angrily after Bradford winger Lesley Vainikolo was forced out of the British leg of the Tri-Nations for the second year in a row.
THE bond shared by the Kiwis will get them through their third rugby league test in as many countries in the space of a fortnight, says skipper Ruben Wiki.
THE conditions ahead of kickoff were cold and wet underfoot, and both sides took their time settling into the game. No doubt the constant drizzle accentuated the calamity of errors which averaged one per minute in the opening five minutes.
After the nerves had settled the game got under way and both sides employed similar tactics, opting to test the midfield defence with bruising runs. Within 6 minutes Ireland were camped on Scotland?s 5metre line and Barrie McDermott almost set up Simon Finnegan but Finnegan couldn?t collect the offload.
SOME good news for the Kiwis is that veteran scrum-half Stacey Jones looks set to line up against Great Britain at Loftus Road after all.
COACH Brian Noble says he has a fully-fit squad of 24 players to select from for Saturday's clash against New Zealand, with Leeds centre Keith Senior shaking off the ankle injury which prevented him from playing in the Super League Grand Final nine days ago and captain Jamie Peacock recovering from a worrying groin injury.
BRADFORD Bulls' blockbusting winger Lesley Vainikolo has been ruled out of New Zealand?s Gillette Tri-Nations plans.
ANDREW Johns has succumbed to a knee injury forcing his withdrawal from the Tri-Nations tour of Great Britain, the Australian Rugby League announced late today.
