Bradford Bulls full-back Brett Kearney has been ruled out for between six and eight weeks after breaking a hand.

The 27-year-old Australian suffered the injury in Thursday night's 30-22 home defeat by Leeds.

Bulls coach Mick Potter said: "I am gutted for BK. He has been playing really well and to lose him long term is very disappointing.

"It is something we will just have to accept. We will look to other players in the squad to cover his position."

Bradford have also confirmed that prop Tom Burgess will miss Monday's game with Catalan Dragons with a knee injury.
