Jack Walker’s Bradford Bulls debut will take place this afternoon.
The former Leeds Rhinos star is still Super League’s youngest ever Grand Final winner after he helped Leeds to Grand Final glory in 2017 at the age of 18 and two months.
At that point the young fullback had the world at his feet but in the years since he has been struck by injury so has made the bold decision to show what he can do in the Championship with Bradford Bulls.
He will not wear the number one shirt in 2023 at Bradford instead taking on 31, the shirt number he wore when he won the Grand Final in 2017.
Tom Holmes will instead wear it despite playing in the halves and he starts in the halves today as Walker starts at fullback against the Dewsbury Rams.
Jordan Lilley starts at hooker with fellow former Rhinos Bodene Thompson not playing nor does former Huddersfield Giants veteran Michael Lawrence. Chester Bulter does start at loose-forward whilst former Castleford Tigers man Joe Arundel could make his second debut for the club after joining from Halifax Panthers.
Huddersfield Giants bound George Flanagan Jr starts on the bench.
They will all be hoping to shine against the Rams away from home today as they prepare for the new season and a push for Super League.
