In a sign that players have faith in the new ownership, former Penrith Panthers utility Jarrod Sammut has become the latest player to re-sign with the club – with the often criticised utility back re-signing for a further 2 years.
Sammut, who moved to Odsal from the now defunct Crusaders 12 months ago, is relieved to have his future at the club sorted.
â€œI did have a few other options, which is always good to have up your sleeve, but my priority was always to stay at Bradford,” said Sammut.
â€œIâ€™m settled here and England is my home. I really enjoy playing in Super League and now Iâ€™ve signed a contract extension, Iâ€™m looking forward to helping us getting back to being the dominant force we once were.â€
Following the collapse of the Crusaders, Sammut was made exempt from the Bulls overseas quota, with Bulls head coach Franny Cummins very pleased to have retained the utility.
â€œJarrod is one of those players who can do things that others cannot,â€ Cummins said.
â€œWeâ€™ve sat down and addressed other parts of his game and I think heâ€™s ready to step up now.
â€œThatâ€™s what Iâ€™ll need from him, but he showed at the back end of the year that he can definitely contribute.
â€œJarrodâ€™s challenge now is to produce the goods on a regular basis because he definitely has the talent, and weâ€™re delighted to have him on board.â€
