Bradford re-sign Wales international

Bradford Bulls have completed the re-signing of Rhys Evans for the 2021 season.

The Wales international has signed a two-year deal with the club after returning following a pre-season switch to Leeds Rhinos.

But he will be back with the Bulls next year and he said: “It is really good to have signed for the next two years – I am looking forward to starting back with the lads once I have finished the season at Leeds and getting stuck into pre-season.

“John has made some really exciting signings the likes of Danny Brough and Aaron Murphy will only make the squad better as well as re-signing a lot of the younger lads who were already really competitive players.

“I had a bit of an injury hit year in 2019 so having that security of a two-year deal means I can really get my head down and look to kick on in a Bradford shirt and hopefully we can build on the success we had before COVID.”

Kear added: “Rhys wants that stability [of a two-year deal] and have it at a club where he knows playing well and being fit will get him in the team.

“I know he is really looking forward to that and belonging to a group for a sustained period – he will benefit from and we will benefit from him for sure.

“He is a great defender – one of the reasons I like him so much is when he plays on our right edge he locks it up, he makes it pretty solid and difficult to break down.”
