Bradford Bulls begin dual registration agreement with League 1 side

Dual registration has become more and more common place over the last decade or so.

The end of reserve grade rugby a few years ago before it was revived recently saw dual registration replace reserves as the top teams’ way of giving exciting young talent game time.

The likes of Harry Newman have shone on dual registration on their way to becoming fortified Super League stars and although reserves rugby and short-term loans are growing strong giving players more and more opportunities to play rugby, dual reg is still a viable option used to give players game time and is used especially by Bradford.

The Bulls replaced Featherstone as Leeds Rhinos’ dual registration partners in 2022 and have already used some of Leeds’ exciting youngsters such as Liam Tindall in their Championship campaign with the former Super League Champions sixth in the league.

Following this success, John Kear’s side have now entered into a new dual registration deal with new club Cornwall from the Betfred League 1.

Cornwall have made a number of exciting signings to build a solid squad to spearhead their rugby league revolution with the club making its debut last week ahead of their first home game which will take place this weekend against Midlands Hurricanes.

Their new dual registration deal with Bradford is the perfect boost ahead of their first home game and will allow them to use Bradford players not playing first team rugby and needing game time to figure for them as they look to grow strong.
