He is technically a Warrington Wolves player, but to give him more experience in the top-grade, the club has made the decision to send back-rower Matty Blythe to the Bradford Bulls, on a season long loan deal.
Blythe came through the ranks at the Wolves, playing 40 games for the side over the last two seasons, before playing in the U20’s side that won the Valvoline Cup Grand Final.
For Blythe, the opportunity is one that he is looking forward to, as he looks to improve himself as a player.
“I’m really looking forward to it. I met with Franny Cummins a couple of weeks ago and he sold it to me straight away,” said Blythe.
“I need to be playing every week because I’m not getting any younger. With the side we’ve got at Warrington, it was pretty hard to string a few games together.”
“I’m looking forward to being a part of things next year at Bradford and hopefully starting regularly. I can obviously play in the forwards, but I see centre as my best position and that’s where I’d like to establish myself. Being able to play a number of positions should help Bradford next year.”
