THREE young Warrington Wolves players have joined Bradford Bulls on a four-week loan spell with immediate effect.

Centre James Saltonstall, who was named in the Italian squad for last year's World Cup, and under 19s Academy forwards Joe Philbin and Tom Walker will train with the Super League side in order to provide them with a full-time training environment while the remainder of Wolves’ first team squad are on training camp in Australia.

The trio will also get the opportunity to compete for game-time in Bradford’s upcoming friendlies against Hull FC on January 19, Dewsbury Rams on January 26 and Castleford Tigers on February 2.
