Bradford Bulls: ABC consortium submits second bid

Bradford Bulls

The ABC consortium has submitted a second bid for Bradford Bulls.

Their initial offer was rejected by the Rugby Football League on Thursday on the grounds it was "unrealistic".

RFL director of licensing Blake Solly said: "We have received details of a new offer to the administrator of the Bulls and will respond in due course."

Meanwhile, administrator Brendan Guilfoyle has confirmed the deadline to find a new buyer has been extended, with the RFL paying August's wages.

Earlier this month Guilfoyle moved the deadline to Friday, 27 July.

In a statement he had appealed to the RFL to help keep the club going: "The only way I can take the Bulls into next month is if the RFL help by paying the wages bill.

"If the RFL can help me to buy a little more time then I can try to bring an acceptable deal to the table.

"There are two home games in August and I really want fans to be able to turn up at Odsal and support their team."

No date has been announced for the new deadline.

Bradford Bulls entered administration on 26 June after attempts to raise £1m to keep the club running were unsuccessful.

As a result of entering administration they were docked six points and currently sit in 9th position in the Super League table, two points outside the play-off places.
