Sibbit blow for Bradford

Bradford’s injury woe has been deepened with the news that Ian Sibbit faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Sibbit, 31, injured his shoulder in the game against Castleford, and following a visit to a Consultant Specialist, he now requires an operation which will keep him out for three months.

Bulls Football Manager Stuart Duffy said: “We are very disappointed, particularly as the injury was caused in an off the ball incident.  Ian saw the Consultant in the week following the Castleford game and he recommended a course of Rehabilitation.   

“Ian has undergone that treatment over the past four weeks but he has not responded to the treatment as we had hoped and another scan carried out by the same Consultant has now shown that an operation is necessary.”

Bradford have already lost Craig Kopczak and Elliot Kear to injury this week, while Luke Gale and James Donaldson are two others currently on the sidelines.

Sibbit signed from Salford ahead of the 2011 season and played 14 games in Super League for the Bulls last season. He has previously played for Warrington and Melbourne in the NRL.
