Jake Webster has spoken of his excitement at taking part in pre-season training for the first time as a Bradford Bull – aiming to further improve to help spearhead to a shot at promotion in 2019.

The Australian-born centre put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal that will see him don the red, amber and black until at least the end of 2020.

Having played for Melbourne Storm and Gold Coast Titans down under, the 35-year-old has represented Hull Kingston Rovers and Castleford Tigers in Super League and brings a wealth of experience to John Kear’s roster.

Webster acknowledges, however, he has a fight on his hands to earn a jersey next season, however, paying tribute to the crop of rising stars in the ranks.

“I am excited to get going, I already know a few of the lads who have helped me settle into the group and it is good to get stuck in now,” said Webster, who is sponsored by The Top House

“To be a part of the club I watched so much growing up is a fantastic opportunity and hopefully I can help the boys get off to a good start next season.

“I am blown away by the facilities here and the way the club is run, when I met John [Kear] for talks at Tong it was a very easy decision to make.

“There is a very talented group of younger players in this squad and to be coached by John is a very exciting prospect.

“The Betfred Championship is a new challenge for me but I am ready to do what it takes to help achieve as much success at the Bulls as I can.

“I am looking forward to running out in front of the supporters for the first time and hopefully I can show them what I am about but I am eager to improve further as a part of this squad – there is more to come.”
