English Super League club goes into administration

11:59 am on 27 June 2012

The English rugby league club Bradford Bulls has gone into administration and faces liquidation in 10 days unless a buyer can be found.

The Bulls have won the Super League four times but have run into financial difficulties over unpaid taxes.

The club has enough money to keep going only until the end of next week.

Fans raised about half a million pounds earlier this year to keep the club going after banks cut their overdraft facilities.
