Another blow for Bradford
Bradford Bulls have confirmed that forward Ian Sibbit will miss the next three months due to a broken arm.
The second-rower, who has struggled with injury over the last few seasons, sustained the problem during the Bulls' 54-0 defeat to St Helens at Langtree Park on Friday but it was initially unclear how serious the problem was.
However, scans have now shown that the 31-year-old has broken his arm and joins the lengthy injury list at Odsal, which already includes the likes of Matt Diskin and Brett Kearney.
Bulls' football manager Stuart Duffy says the player is now likely to miss at least 12 weeks of action and has expressed his sadness at the former Salford man's latest ailment.
"It's another blow for the club and for Ian who has been chomping at the bit to get back on the field," Duffy told the club's official website.
"Scans undertaken yesterday revealed a broken arm and he has had an operation (on Sunday). Ian is expected to miss the next twelve weeks of the season."
