Hull FC have agreed a loan move for Liam Tindall with the winger moving to Championship outfit Bradford Bulls on a short-term deal. The 22-year-old will now hope to get some welcome first-team action in the sport's second tier after playing twice for the reserves recently, featuring against both St Helens and Warrington Wolves.

Tindall, one of nine new signings ahead of 2024, has struggled to break into the Black and Whites' first-team this season with the pacey back first injuring his thumb in pre-season. He also had a mild knee issue that kept him out, with Lewis Martin's stern emergence this year also a factor.

Martin, 19, has been backed on the left wing for all but one game this season, making ten apperances. And with the homegrown winger, who joined Hull FC after a spell in Hull City AFC's academy, continuing to impress, the club have sought a move for Tindall to West Yorkshire.

Signed from Leeds Rhinos, Tindall has played three first-team games for Hull this year, appearing against Leigh Leopards, Huddersfield Giants, and the Rhinos. He is no stranger to Bradford, having spent time at Odsal in each of the 2022 and 2023 seasons. He his made nine appearances for the Bulls to date, scoring six tries.

In the meantime, Hull are set to back Martin again for Sunday's trip to London Broncos, with new signing Tom Briscoe playing on the right flank after securing an 18-month deal last month.
