Bradford Bulls Super League licence extended

Bradford Bulls have had their Super League licence extended until the end of the 2014 season.

The Bulls were given a one-year probationary licence after exiting administration in August 2012.

Chairman Omar Khan told BBC Radio Leeds: "I'm very pleased and it's great news for the club.

"It means that we can move forward and the RFL were very happy with what they saw when they looked at how the club was being run."

He added: "We were confident that we would get the new licence because of the progress that we've made.

"For a club to come out of administration and be so high up in the league is good news. The players and coach are doing brilliantly.

"I want to take the club back to the days when they were number one in the league."

The Bulls had faced the threat of liquidation after entering administration in June 2012, before a consortium led by Khan purchased the club from administrators.

Bradford are sixth in Super League with 14 points from 13 games.
