Super League winger returns to Bulls on one-month loan deal

The Bradford Bulls have announced that Super League winger Liam Tindall has joined the club on an initial one-month loan from Hull FC.

Tindall, 22, returns to Bartercard Odsal Stadium for a third loan term after appearing briefly in the red, amber, and black in 2022 and 2023.

The former Leeds Rhinos Academy product is well-known as one of the Super League’s fastest players, having scored six tries in his previous nine games for the Bulls.

Bradford manager Eamon O’Carroll has expressed his delight at Tindall’s arrival, which will provide competition for places and Super League standards to further strengthen his squad in the coming weeks.

“I am very eager to have Liam in. I didn’t know much about him from his time here last year, but I know his caliber, and the group thinks highly of him.

“He’s a great character who works hard; he’s energetic and strong in the backfield, so he will add quality,” O’Carroll said.

He added: “He’s got speed which is always nice, and he will add competition for places too. As I’ve mentioned a number of times, we are skinny in that area.

“Liam will also bring standards from a Super League environment to add to the standards we drive internally.”

After speaking with Tindall, O’Carroll said that it was evident that the winger wanted to return to Odsal.

Bradford’s head coach stated: “When I spoke with him, he was delighted and happy to be returning. It will help that he has been here before, which should ensure that he adjusts fast and becomes the best version of himself.”

O’Carroll went on to discuss the importance of tough rivalry among the group, something he hopes Tindall will provide.

He said: “It’s good to have more competition for places, for sure. Liam comes with a view to playing, but to be a successful team you need a person behind you hot on your heels.”

O’Carroll provided an update on when the winger will be able to feature in a competitive fixture for Bradford again, saying: “While he will not be playing this weekend, he will be training with us starting tonight (Thursday) to reintegrate himself into the group.”

“I have spoken before about the whole squad helping us prepare, but the lads here have earned the right to play in a semi-final this weekend on the back of a good performance at Swinton.”

O’Carroll added: “For Liam, it’s a one-month contract, but if he comes in and adds value to the squad, we’ll consider extending his stay.”

“Obviously, Hull will have a say in that, but we will maximise the month we have him for and give him the opportunity to play competitive rugby.”
