Henry signs new deal at Bradford
Bradford Bulls have re-signed their threequarter Adam Henry as the eleventh addition to their squad for 2015.
The 23-year-old New Zealander arrived from Sydney Roosters prior to the start of last season and has signed a new one-year deal with the club.
Henry, who can operate at centre and on the wing, has developed into a first-team regular this season, making more than 20 appearances in Bulls colours.
“I am really pleased to be staying because I love it here,” said Henry.
“The club wanted me to stay and the main thing for me was Jimmy (Lowes).
“He has put a lot of faith in me and pretty much played me every week since taking over as coach. That was the main reason why I chose to stay, as he is backing me all the way.
“He said all the hard work would pay off and in the past two games we have beaten Wigan and Leeds.
“In addition to that, our supporters have been very welcoming and I would like to thank them for all the love they have shown me since I joined the Bulls.”
Coach Lowes believes that Henry, a former Premiership-winning player with New Zealand Warriors Under-20s, can become a key figure at the Provident Stadium.
He has scored five tries in Super League this season and Lowes says he wants to see further development from the Auckland-born player.
“Adam is a player with great attacking flair and I like a lot of what he does,” added Lowes, who this summer took over the coaching reins.
“He certainly has something to offer the team and I am hoping, over the next few years, he can flourish and become a key figure in our side.
“He is young and still has a lot to learn, but has bags of potential and I am delighted that we have been able to secure his services.
“He is happy to be here and we are happy to have him on board for next season.”
