He may not be a superstar player just yet, but 21-year old Bradford Bulls utility Danny Addy has shown enough, to be rewarded with a new 12-month contract by the club.
Addy, who made 13 appearances for the club last season, becomes the fourth Bradford player to re-sign with the club, after Chev Walker, Jarrod Sammut and Manase Manuokafoa.
Francis Cummins, the new Bradford coach, said that the club is excited to retain the services of the exciting, young utility.
â€œI am delighted we have been able to retain Danny for next season.
â€œHe is a very talented player who, whilst he does offer great utility value, should be looking to be more position specific next season.
â€œI am looking for Danny to put his hand up and stake a claim for a place in the back row.â€
With his utility value a key factor for the club, Addy has said that the coach wants him to play in the back-row – as he too is excited to have signed a new deal.
â€œFranny and I spoke this week and he told me that he wants me playing in the back row.
â€œI think thatâ€™s my best position – loose forward or second row, and I would be more than happy to do a job there week in week out.
â€œFranny played a big part in my decision to sign a new deal. What he said convinced me that this is the club I definitely want to be at for a while now, and Iâ€™m absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract.â€
