Jordan Lilley will rejoin Bradford Bulls on loan
Leeds Rhinos half back Jordan Lilley has rejoined Kingstone Press Championship side Bradford Bulls on a months loan.
Lilley originally joined Bradford on loan at the start of the season with Josh Jordan-Roberts, Mikolaj Oledzki and Sam Hallas however he returned to the Rhinos a fortnight ago for the Betfred Super League game at Castleford Tigers.
Bradford Bulls and Leeds Rhinos have come to another agreement that will see the 20-year-old spend another month at the Provident Stadium.
Joining fellow Leeds loanee’s, Lilley will re-join the Bulls and be in contention for the half back role.
Lilley commented, “I’m really happy to have re-signed here at the Bulls, it’s a great club with a great set of people working in it. We have got the points down to half of the deficit which is a great boost in moral for us. We are more than confident that we can get this done and stay up.”
Jordan joined the Bulls prior to the season opener against Hull KR, where he has played a pivotal part in the team since. The youngster’s skill and playing ability, combined with the experience of leader, Leon Pryce is the perfect mixture for success.
“Playing with Leon in the halves has been such an honour. He is someone that I used to watch when I was growing up learning the sport. Now I have the opportunity to play with him in the halves is great, I’m learning so much off him, more than I ever thought that I could,” added the former Stanningley junior.
Lilley will not be available for selection for this weekend’s fixture, as the Bulls host Featherstone Rovers in round four of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup. All players loaned to the Bulls from the Rhinos will be exempt for selection, due to terms of the original loan deals signed.
