Key Bradford man O’Brien reveals he’s staying in 2016

Bradford Bulls have been handed a major boost ahead of their 2016 Championship campaign, after the club’s player of the year, hooker Adam O’Brien, has revealed he will be staying with the Bulls next year.

Bradford owner Marc Green had confirmed last week that anyone still under contract would stay at the club, but O’Brien has gone a step further, revealing to the Telegraph and Argus that he’s going nowhere.

The young hooker has impressed during 2015 and was believed to have interested some Super League clubs, but he insists he’s going nowhere.

“I’m secure in my contract and I’ll still be here next year. I’m ready to come back for training in pre-season and crack on again for another promotion challenge,” he said.

“We’ve got to focus on the Championship and then try and prepare ourselves for the Qualifiers.

“Hopefully we get back into Super League without the Million Pound Game by going up in the top three. That has to be our aim and I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead.”
