BRADFORD & BINGLEY look like they have unearthed a diamond in Dennis Tuffour.

The 28-year-old Anglo-Ghanaian, who has played rugby league for Hull FC, York City Knights, Hunslet and Doncaster, hasn't played the 13-man semi-professional code since 2014, and was persuaded to put his boots back on by Bees committeeman Glen Shaw, who has been working on persuading Tuffour to play for a year.

Shaw said: "I am a self-employed car transporter and deliver cars to JCT600, who Dennis works for in Hull. I actually asked him to play for us last year, but we'll just have to see how often he is available."

Tuffour made his debut for the Bees last Saturday at home to Dinnington, and Bees secretary Nick Patterson said: "Dennis has ridiculous pace ball in hand and an eye for the gap and looked a threat almost every time that he touched the ball. The only thing is that his job means that he is only available two weeks in three."

Tuffour, who scored a try, helped the Bees win 31-22 in North One East, and they are at Northern on Saturday, hoping to build on that first win after three losses.

CLECKHEATON have scrum half Jack Bickerdike back after he has recovered quicker than expected from a broken thumb suffered in pre-season.

Winger Mikey Hayward returns after hamstring trouble, and 18-year-old Josh Clough, who made his debut last week, is retained in the squad for the home derby against West Leeds.

BRADFORD SALEM are without John Bradbury, Harry Hall, Matt Booth, Connor Malarkey, Max Trueman and Danny Belcher for the Yorkshire Division One trip to Scarborough.

OLD GROVIANS, who host West Park Leeds in a Yorkshire Division Two derby, hand a debut to Stanningley RL player Josh Turner, and welcome back Pad Burns on the wing and Alex Masterson at full back.
