Wigan Warriors forward completes immediate switch alongside Warrington prop

Bradford Bulls have announced the loan signings of Lucas Green and Harvey Wilson – from Warrington Wolves and Wigan Warriors respectively.

The duo, who both primarily feature in the front row, will join Eamon O’Carroll’s squad on an initial one-month loan deal – and be in contention to feature in Friday’s Betfred Championship opener at Wakefield.

Green, 19, made his Super League bow last year, before going on to make 10 top-flight appearances for the Wolves. Wigan Warriors youngster Wilson, also 19, featured seven times for promotion-chasing Oldham RLFC in 2023, scoring two tries.

Bradford Bulls Head Coach Eamon O’Carroll, who is sponsored by M & S Combustion, said:

“I am really pleased to get Lucas and Harvey in, we are in a position at the minute with injuries and where the game is at with suspensions where we are really low on numbers.

“Lucas is an energiser; he has some vigour with how he carries the ball and how he defends without it.

“Harvey is another who is more than capable, he comes with a great reputation at Wigan.

“When I spoke to John Duffy it was clear how highly Harvey is thought of and from the games I have seen, having watched him in pre-season against Warrington and a game for Widnes, he has good leg speed and he works really hard so he will settle into the group really well.

“We are extremely grateful to the two clubs for allowing their players to join us on loan and I am really looking forward to working with them both.”

Wigan Warriors youngster give Bradford boost

Bradford Bulls

Bradford Bulls are gunning for promotion and are looking to start the Championship season off with a bang against Wakefield Trinity and the arrival of these two players from Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves will be a massive boost for the Bulls against the Championship favourites.

Wakefield came up short against Featherstone Rovers in the Challenge Cup. The Rovers took a 10-0 lead at the break, Wakefield Trinity battled back to 10-all to take the game to Golden Point Extra Time where a Mason Lino error allowed Gareth Gale to intercept the ball and run near enough 70 metres to win the game and stun Wakefield.
