ETU UAISELE says his dreams will come true when he pulls on the red, amber and black of Bradford next year.

The Tongan international has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Bulls, keeping him at the Provident Stadium until at least the end of 2016.

Uaisele, 29, has spoken of how he was inspired by some of the club's former greats, having looked on from a young age.

The opportunity for the former NRL star to follow in the footsteps of his idols was one he felt he could not afford to pass up.

“I see coming to play for the Bulls as a massive chance for me,” said Uaisele.

“I grew up watching the likes of Lesley Vainikolo, he was unreal for Bradford, and I just cannot wait to get started and have a good spell here.

“I cannot wait to play under James Lowes, as the boys who are playing under him now are only saying good things about life with the Bulls.

“Everything I have heard or been told has been hugely positive. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates, hear about the plans for next season and kick on.”

Prior to joining Championship side Featherstone Rovers last year, Uaisele enjoyed stints in Australia with Parramatta Eels and, more recently, Penrith Panthers.

He is currently plying his trade with reigning second-tier champions Sheffield, having made a try-scoring debut for the Eagles last week.

“I will bring plenty of experience and a huge amount of passion to the Bulls,” added Uaisele.

“To me, winning is everything and I am already looking forward to pre-season training.

“I love rugby league and I play with a lot of energy. I have spent plenty of time in the NRL and have represented by country in a World Cup, so come with experience from across the globe.

“Having played in the Championship this year, I think it will be good for me and the Bulls going forward.”

Uaisele will see out the remainder of the 2014 campaign with the Eagles, before reporting back for pre-season training with Bradford later this year.
