“I have played with Steve Crossley and Anthony England before and the pack is starting to take shape – if we can impose ourselves on the pitch we can go well this season.”

Bradford Bulls Head Coach, John Kear, said: “Sam is a quality player, what we are getting is a very good rugby league player who we need in that middle channel.

“I am delighted we got the deal over the line because he can add something to us in the Championship, we are bringing players in it has taken time, our philosophy is don’t bring anyone in who won’t add value.”
