Purtell waiting for green light to return

Bradford centre Adrian Purtell is hoping to play his first game on Sunday since suffering a heart attack last season.

Purtell, 28, was taken ill following the Bulls’ defeat against Leeds at the Magic Weekend in May.

The Australian resumed training in November after being cleared of any permanent damage, and is waiting to receive the green light from a specialist before returning to first team action.

Coach Francis Cummins said: “It would be remarkable to see Adrian back. When it happened, you thought that would be it – both for his real life as well as his profession – but all credit to him.

“He has come through some tough moments but on the whole he has been very positive.

“It would be great for him, great for the club and great for the game to see him back.”
