Bradford back-rower Chev Walker has returned to first team training after undergoing minor knee surgery during the close season.
Walker, 31, signed a new one-year deal with the Bulls in June, and has spent the last month in rehabilitation.
He told the club’s official website: “I had a micro-fracture. I’d had a clear-out last year and to give myself a bit more longevity the micro-fracture was necessary.
“I had that done and it seems to have responded really well so, touch wood, I don’t have any flare-ups throughout the year.
Bradford’s opening Super League game of the season is against Castleford at Odsal on Sunday February 16.
