Bulls sign Harry Siejka from Wildcats

Bradford Bulls have signed Australian scrum-half Harry Siejka from Wakefield Wildcats.

Siejka, 22, has signed a two-year contract, completing the Bulls’ 30-man roster for 2015. He has played for Penrith Panthers, New Zealand Warriors and St George Illawarra Dragons in the NRL, while earlier this year he joined Trinity, where injuries restricted his appearances to nine games.

“I like what I have seen of Harry,” said Bradford coach James Lowes.

“He came over on the back of a pretty bad injury and has not yet managed to fulfil his potential, but he is an excellent scrum-half and we are delighted to have him on board.

“I liken him to Bobbie Goulding. He can break the line, has a great kicking game and is the kind of guy who is not afraid of getting stuck in.

“I feel sure Harry has some great years ahead of him and am hoping he will form a solid partnership with Lee Gaskell in the halves.

“They should complement each other pretty well. They differ in style but we have a cracking mix here, with young Adam Brook right behind the pair of them.”

Siejka will be introduced to his new team-mates early next month, prior to the start of pre-season training.
