Former NRL back-rower re-signs with ESL side Bradford

Manase Manuokafoa

Securing his future was the key, and now that that is done, former Souths, Cowboys and Eels back-rower is looking forward to his future with ESL side Bradford, after re-signing with the club for 2 years.

Manuokafoa, 27, of Tongan descent, joined Bradford from the Parramatta Eels 12 months ago – with new Bradford coach Francis Cummins eager to retain Manuokafoa, the man nicknamed ‘Nas’.

“I wanted to keep Nas at the club because he’s a great man, as well as being a very good rugby league player.

“It was a massive gamble by Nas and by us for him to come here last year, because the NRL is completely different.

“But Nas has proved himself and settled here well with his family. He has made his mark in Super League and I expect him to step up again next season and become one of our leaders.”

With the Bradford side currently rebuilding for 2013 and beyond, a process that has seen 17 players off-contract at the end of last year – with a few players re-signing, Bradford will have plenty of room to move.

With Bradford now under new ownership, Manuokafoa is looking forward to the next two years at Bradford.

“With Omar Khan having taken over the club, I believe the Bulls can go places and I’m delighted to be a part of things going forward,” he said.
