Crossley has suitors after leaving Bradford Bulls

Bradford Bulls prop forward Steve Crossley has left the club after having the final year of his contract cancelled by mutual consent.

The 21-year-old made two appearances for the Bulls last season.

Bulls football manager Stuart Duffy said: "Steve needs regular competitive football to keep developing his game.

"But with the rules at the moment the opportunities for him to play as an over-age player in the Under-20s competition will be limited as well."

He added: "I'm pleased to say there's been quite a bit of interest from elsewhere so I don't expect Steve to be without a club for very long."

Bulls scrum-half Cain Southernwood, meanwhile, has joined Championship side Dewsbury Rams on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old, who has represented England at academy level, joined the Bulls from Wakefield Wildcats in 2009.

Duffy said: "This is a great opportunity for Cain to play at a higher level. He needs to be playing regularly and developing his talents on a weekly basis and that is something he will get at Dewsbury.

"He will have a lot of responsibility to organise the side and it is something we are looking forward to seeing him do on a regular basis."
