Bradford Bulls have revealed that James Lowes will coach them for the next two and a half years.
Lowes returns to the club with which he won every major honour
He addressed a packed media conference by saying: “It’s good to be back.”
Chairman Marc Green said: “Prior to Francis departing from the club we’d not spoken to anyone. A number of people put their hands forward for the vacancy as soon as it was made available.
“Jimmy was the best candidate, and I’d like to thank Leeds Carnegie for their part in the process.”
