DANNY BRIDGE has today put pen to paper on a new agreement with Bradford Bulls, which will keep him at The Provident Stadium until the end of the current campaign as part of a season-long loan deal.
The 21-year-old Ireland international, who was a member of the Wolfhounds' 2013 Rugby League World Cup squad, has spent two months with the Bulls since joining from parent club Warrington Wolves earlier this year.
And rising talent Bridge, the brother of former Bradford player Chris, is staying put having made seven top-flight appearances for Francis Cummins' side this term.
As part of the agreement, Bridge – who is being proudly sponsored by George Timberley - can be recalled at any time by the Wolves.
“I am absolutely delighted to have Danny on board for the remainder of the season, he has done really well for us so far,” said head coach Cummins.
“He has at times been forced to play out of position and has stood up to the challenge on every single occasion.
“He has worked very hard and I am really looking forward to seeing what he produces in the weeks and months ahead.
“Danny is hugely talented and still very young, meaning he has a bright future ahead of him.
“Hopefully he can continue to develop here and provide us with the level of performance which he already has done over the past eight weeks or so.”
Meanwhile, Bradford Bulls can today confirm the departure of front-rower Anthony Mullally.
The prop, who lined up alongside Bridge during last year's World Cup, has been recalled by parent club Huddersfield Giants and returns to the John Smith's Stadium with immediate effect.
