McNally heads for Bulls exit

3rd January 2019, 00:29 by Michael Holland

Gregg McNally has been released from the final year of his Bradford Bulls contract due to personal issues.

The full-back's wife is seriously ill as she battles avascular necrosis, which is a crippling bone condition that has been getting worse.

McNally has been unable to train in pre-season as he has been back in Ireland taking care of his wife, and the decision has now been taken to rip up the last year of his deal.

Bradford coach John Kear said: "Gregg hasn't been back to training simply because he's had difficulty making it over because of his wife's requirements.

"They've got two young kids, aged five and six, and rugby comes a very poor second when things like that are going on. We totally understand and there is no ill-feeling whatsoever."

McNally, who turned 28 on Wednesday added: "It's been a tough decision but it's time I put my family first after years of them putting my career first."
