Bulls: Versatile Addy wants to play loose forward

Bradford utility Danny Addy believes he is most effective playing at loose forward and wants to cement a starting spot there with the Bulls next season following the departure of James Donaldson to Hull KR.

Addy played everywhere from prop to half-back in 2014 but wants to concentrate on his strength, which he believes is at the back of the scrum.

“This coming year I want to play loose forward,” Addy told the T&A.

“It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a number of years but, like I’ve said before, I’m just happy to be playing and doing my bit for the team.

“I’d really like to play loose forward now but it’s up to Jimmy as to where he wants to play me.

“I think against Widnes [in round 26] I played prop, then went to hooker, then half-back before ending up at loose forward.

“It’s good and bad in a way because you can’t really concentrate on one position but I think I can do a job in any really. Loose forward is my favourite and whoever is performing will get the shirt.

“Obviously everyone is going to have to fight for their positions this year and we’ve got a really big team in size and numbers.

“I’m sure it can only do us good and improve each and every one of us. I’m really looking forward to trying to get straight back up.”
