The Rugby Football League has "conditionally" and "reluctantly" approved Bradford Bulls' application to groundshare with Dewsbury in 2020.

Championship club Bradford advised that it was planning to leave Odsal at the end of this season and had agreed a two-year lease with Dewsbury.

However, the RFL have only ratified the deal for the 2020 season.

Chairman Andrew Chalmers has said the Bulls are identifying potential sites for a new-build stadium in the city.

However, Friday's RFL statement said: "This permission has been granted reluctantly and on the basis that the club's intention is to return to Bradford in the near future.

Super League would benefit from expanding to 14 clubs from 12 and dropping the loop fixtures, says Bradford Bulls coach John Kear.

Top-flight teams play 29 games apiece, home and away once, plus a Magic round and then six extra 'loop' matches.

Those games are decided using two pools of odds versus evens, from the previous season's league positions.
