Bulls sign Broncos star

Bradford Bulls have announced the signing of London Broncos halfback Oscar Thomas for next season.

Thomas, 21, has penned a two-year deal and will join his new team-mates at the Provident Stadium later this year.

Primarily a stand-off, Thomas has scored ten tries in 22 appearances for the Broncos since returning from a spell with rugby union side London Irish in 2014.

“It is really exciting for me to be joining such a prestigious club,” said London-born Thomas, who becomes the Bulls’ first new addition for 2016.

“I really like the Bulls’ style of play. It will suit my game and enable me to take it to the next level.

“I hope to bring energy, enthusiasm and organisation, as well as a creative edge in attack.”

Thomas, who can also operate at fullback, joined the Broncos as a 12-year-old and has also spent time at London Skolars.

“I want to make the most of being part of the Bulls’ set-up,” added Thomas.

“I want to learn fast, so I can develop and improve my game.

“The ultimate aim is to earn a regular starting spot.

“It is clear that everyone at the Bulls is working hard to make the most of the Super 8s opportunity.

“I wish the boys the best of luck in The Qualifiers.”
