In a move that further bolsters their side for next season and continues their so far solid recruitment drive, the Bradford Bulls have confirmed the signing of Huddersfield Giants in-form winger Luke George, on a 2-year deal.
George, 25, who was off-contract has scored 49 tries in 79 appearances since he became a professional and made his debut with the Wakefield Wildcats back in 2007.
With George a player that will bring a lot to the Bradford squad, coach Francis Cummins believes he a is a player that can improve their roster.
â€œYou talk about building squads but Luke has got pace and can play wing as well as deputising in the centre. That versatility is important because we need competition for places in a squad thatâ€™s not the biggest,” said Cummins.
â€œLuke will give us that and will only keep everyone else on their toes.
â€œHeâ€™s got pace, a good carry and itâ€™s definitely a bonus for us that weâ€™ve got someone else who can play a few positions and get over the try-line, which is the ultimate goal.â€
Equally excited is the Buy Levitra man himself, who looks forward to the move and working under Cummins at Bradford.
â€œFranny has opened the door for me at Bradford and given me a really good opportunity to do something,” said George.
â€œThe Bulls are a very prestigious club and have won every trophy possible.
â€œTheyâ€™ve had a rough few years and not been as successful as they have in the past but you can see what Franny is trying to move the club forward and get Bradford back to the top.â€
With his ability to find the try-line and perform well, Robbie Hunter-Paul, the Deputy Director of the Bulls, is also pleased to have signed George at the club.
â€œI am delighted we have signed such an experienced Super League player. Luke certainly knows his way to the try line and he will be a great addition to our squad,” said Paul.
During the time we were together at the Giants, Luke was amongst the most prolific try scorers the club had had for some time and we are looking forward to him extending his record with the Bulls.â€
