JOE Arundel is set to make his Bradford debut against Warrington on Sunday but Bulls' pack is down to the bare bones.

Heavyweight front rowers Manase Manuokafoa and Jamal Fakir have been ruled out through injury.

And Dale Ferguson (back) and James Donaldson (ankle) have failed to recover from recent knocks.

The props picked up injuries during last weekend's Challenge Cup win, so rookies Sam Bates, Alex Mellor and Sam Wood have been named in Cummins' 19-man squad.

Centre Arundel, brought in on loan from Hull, comes into contention after being cup-tied against Catalan Dragons last weekend and he looks certain to feature.

Matty Blythe, the former Wolves centre, also remains sidelined with a knee injury that is expected to keep him out for another six weeks.

19-man squad: Danny Addy, Joe Arundel, Sam Bates, Matt Diskin, Jamie Foster, Luke Gale, Lee Gaskell, Luke George, Adam Henry, Elliot Kear, Brett Kearney, Alex Mellor, Adam O'Brien, Tom Olbison, Jay Pitts, Adrian Purtell, Adam Sidlow, Chev Walker, Sam Wood.
