WAKEFIELD Wildcats coach Glenn Morrison hopes the consortium in talks to buy Bradford Bulls will provide a successful Super League future for the Odsal club.

Morrison, who spent three years with the Bulls, suffered the experience of administration with Wakefield last season and is eager to see light at the end of the Bradford tunnel.

Bradford-based consortium ABC are locked in talks with adminostrator Brendon Guilfoyle and the RFL and Morrison hopes there’s a swift conclusion for the good of the club.

“I know what it’s like to be in that position, we had it here at Wakefield last season,” he said.

“Luckily we came through it all pretty quickly and I hope Bradford do too. You never want to see a club in trouble like they are and it’s more tough because it’s a former club of mine.

“I still catch up and have a coffee with a lot of the people there, and my wife still works there on the cheerleading side of things so I’m hoping this time next week we see a brighter future for the Bulls and someone comes in to take them forward.”

Guilfoyle expects a bid to be made by ABC today but it would need to satisfy both Guilfoyle and the RFL to be given the green light.
