Bradford coach Mick Potter wants a quick resolution to the club's boardroom re-shuffle so that he can begin his preparations for next season.
While most of his rivals have begun the process of re-signing players who are out of contract at the end of the year, Potter's hands have been tied by the current takeover precipitated by the club's financial crisis.
And Potter is acutely aware of the pressing need to secure the future of the club's brightest stars, with no fewer than 17 players out of contract.
"My concern is to start to re-sign players that need to be re-signed," he said. "That ball needs to start rolling very soon. We've had a stop on that for the last six weeks."
The Bulls are particularly keen to tie up teenage forward John Bateman, who has a year left on his contract but is thought to have already attracted offers from Warrington.
Peter Hood had begun talks with the academy international before he stepped down as chairman earlier this month to make way for the return of former directors Chris Caisley and Stephen Coulby.
Caisley has set up a review of the club's operations to determine the true financial situation and Potter must now wait for its completion before he can move on.
Potter is also out of contract at the end of the season and, although he is keen to stay on after engineering an improvement in playing fortunes this year, former Great Britain boss Brian Noble has been linked with a return to Odsal.
