WARRIORS forward Greg Burke has joined Bradford Bulls on a month-long loan.

The 21-year-old Ince Rose Bridge product made an impressive start to his Warriors career, making 13 appearances in 2013 after making his debut in a 17-17 draw against Warrington.

Burke was on the bench for Wigan in last Sunday’s 46-24 defeat of Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and is likely to go straight into the mix for Bradford’s trip to Hull FC on Friday.

Warriors coach Shaun Wane said: “This is a good opportunity for Greg to gain some regular football at the highest level and he will come back to us in a month’s time with some Super League game time under his belt. Greg is a valuable member of our playing squad but at the moment I can’t promise him a regular place in the side and both him and the Bulls will benefit from this agreement.”

Burke has already trained with the Bulls, who have been deducted six Super League points for their ongoing financial troubles, and told BBC Radio Leeds: “My first session with the lads was pretty good and in spite of everything going on, the mood was absolutely brilliant.”
