Former NRL prop re-signs with Bradford

Manase Manuokafoa

When a player feels comfortable at their current club, they re-sign with them and for Bradford Bulls prop Manase Manuokafoa, he has done that after putting pen to paper on a new deal that will see him stay at the club until the end of 2015.

Although already contracted for next year under his pre-existing deal, the club felt it best to look at keeping him on board a year longer, something the Tongan international was thrilled about.

“I want to be a part of the Bulls moving forward under Franny and that’s why I’ve signed for another two years,” said Manuokafoa.

“There are a lot of very good home grown players at the club and it’s up to the senior players such as myself to help them come through.

“I’m just very happy to extend my stay at Bradford. My wife, my son and I love it here. We love the club and hgh diet are very settled in the area.”

With a key to any side their forward pack, Bulls coach Francis Cummins says re-signing the man nicknamed ‘Nas’ was important for the club moving forward.

“You need a strong pack to take you forward and to bring in other people such as Garreth (Carvell) is great, but Nas is very important for us too,” said Cummins.

“He’s improved again this year despite the setback of breaking his thumb.

“But he had a good off-season and I reckon he’s going to be even better next year too.”

Also pleased with the re-signing of Manuokafoa is Bulls owner Omar Khan, whose missed presence due to a broken thumb was felt by the club.

“Nas has been great for us and we really missed him when he broke his thumb. He is a really good fellow and I’m delighted he’s staying with us for the next two years,” said Khan.
