19 Man Squad Announcement – Bradford Bulls

Head Coach Craig Lingard has today named his 19 man squad to face the Bradford Bulls this Sunday.

The only change made to the side that was knocked out of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup at the hands of the North Wales Crusaders sees Lewis Fairhurst come into the squad in the place of Jose Kenga.

Samir Tahraoui is expected to make his 100th career appearance against one of his former sides with Andy Gabriel needing one try to reach 50 in Cougars colours.

Josh Lynam serves the final game of his two-match suspension for Grade C Punching as a result of last Sunday’s game at Newcastle being postponed due to the ‘Beast From The East’ meaning his ban is carried over an extra week.

Cameron Leeming (Knee) underwent surgery this week but Liam Senior (Back) and Dan Parker (Hand) are both nearing a return to full fitness following their respective injuries.

The derby against the Bulls comes too soon for both new signing Perry Whiteley and Davey Dixon, who featured for the reserves on his return from the Commonwealth Championships in Australia.
