Betfred Championship side Bradford Bulls have completed the signing of former Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel Danny Brough from the start of the 2021 season.
Brough was named as the Betfred Super League Man of Steel in 2013 following an impressive season with Huddersfield Giants.
The Scotland International has also enjoyed spells with Dewsbury Rams, York City Knights, Hull FC, Castleford Tigers and Wakefield Trinity during his 18-year career.
Brough said: “I am really pleased to have signed; it is a challenge I am looking forward to an I see a club progressing from its darkest days to hopefully a brighter future.
“The Bradford lads really impressed me in the cup tie back in March, I thought they were the better team, they really stood up against us and that stands the side in good stead.
“I am hoping I can try and bring a winning mentality and great attitude to the side and help when times get tough to knuckle down and get the boys over the line.”
Brough will reunite with Bradford Bulls boss John Kear, having worked with the Head Coach during his time with Hull FC and Wakefield Trinity.
Kear said: “It is a key signing, it shows the true ambition of the club – our priority is to keep our essential players but when you have absolute quality coming available you have to pursue it, we did and we are delighted Danny has signed.
“We are operating on a tight budget, but Danny has agreed to come because he likes the challenge ahead of him and because we have a great relationship.
“After the signings we made this year, there is a gradual assimilation of talent in our ranks and the fans should take great heart from his signing and eagerly anticipate him pulling on the red, amber and black.
“What I want Danny to bring is the element of composure through his experience and he is a very tough competitor and I want that ruthless competitive edge in our squad.
“He will help the younger players realise Super League isn’t a distant dream, but a hard-nosed desire and he is without doubt a huge talent.”
