The RFL says it expects a decision will be made by this afternoon on the future of the Bradford Bulls.
The RFL released a statement late on Thursday: “Members of the RFL Executive and Welfare team have today spoken to the players and staff of Bradford Bulls to update them on the current situation at the club.
“The administrator was also represented within the discussion by Howard Roberts.
“The RFL was able to disclose that following positive and detailed discussions an interested consortium is considering bidding for the Bradford Bulls, and that the consortium now has all the information needed to make a decision on whether it will make a formal offer for the club.
“Despite the fact that the consortium could potentially offer an exciting future, the RFL recognises that no deal has yet has been struck. It does however expect that a decision will be made by tomorrow afternoon.
“The RFL understands that it is a difficult time for all involved and recognises the patience and cooperation being demonstrated by, in particular, the players and staff of Bradford Bulls at what must be an incredibly stressful time.”
