Bradford Bulls call a Tuesday press conference to unveil their new head coach, with Glenn Morrison and James Lowes among the favourites to succeed Francis Cummins.

Bradford Bulls have called a Tuesday morning press conference to present their new head coach.

The Super League outfit will make an announcement on Francis Cummins's replacement at 9.30am.

Cummins was sacked last week with the Bulls having lost 12 of their 16 games this season, with the club's owners not accepting their deep financial worries as an excuse for their relegation form.

Former Bradford forward and current Dewsbury Rams head coach Glenn Morrison has admitted his interest in the job, while ex-Bulls hooker James Lowes, who is currently at the helm of union side Leeds Carnegie, is also thought to be in the running for the vacancy.

Captain Matt Diskin has been in temporary charge, but does not want the position on a full-time basis.
