O’Brien signs new Bradford deal

Adam O’Brien has committed his long-term future to Bradford Bulls by signing a new three-year deal with the club.

The 22-year-old, widely linked with a move to numerous Super League clubs last year, has been in fine form again for the Bulls this year.

But despite a number of Super League clubs thought to still be interested, the hooker has signed a new contract that will keep him at Bradford until the end of the 2019 season.

“I’m over the moon to have signed until the end of 2019,” said O’Brien.

“It gives me a bit of security and a target to get Bradford back into the Super League. It’s really good for me and I’m looking forward to the challenge of being at the club for another three years.

“I came through the youth system and went into the first team but never really planned my future. Now, I’ve got my first team spot and have become a regular in the side, plus I’m one of the longest serving players.

“To continue my stay at the club with an extension is brilliant and I’m over the moon about it. The main thing now is to focus on the rest of the year and push on towards returning to the Super League.”
