Bradford complete deal for Webster

Bradford Bulls have completed the signing of Castleford centre Jake Webster on a two-year deal.

Webster is one of Castleford’s longest-serving players, having been with the club for six seasons, as well as playing a crucial role in their League Leaders’ Shield triumph last season.

However, the Tigers are set to move in a different direction next year, and, as revealed in League Express several weeks ago, that alerted the Bulls to Webster’s availability.

His arrival will be seen as a huge coup for Bradford and John Kear, with Webster playing a key part in Castleford’s excellent 2017 campaign.

Head coach John Kear said: “I’m really pleased to secure this deal. I have always admired Jake. He is a player that is a huge threat to any defensive line and sets a good example as a professional and leader.

“We know what is required and expected of players in the Bradford Bulls shirt and with the support of our fans we are able to build and add to a squad that I know will stand us in good stead for the campaigns ahead.”
