BULLS SEAL BROUGH DEAL
BRADFORD Bulls are delighted to confirm former Man of Steel Danny Brough will be a Bull from the start of the 2021 season – having put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal!
The vastly-experienced half-back will reunite with head coach John Kear – having featured under the Bradford boss at Hull FC and Wakefield Trinity.
Hull-born Brough will arrive at the club on the back of a stunning sixteen years in the sport’s top tier, winning the highly coveted Man of Steel Award in 2013 for his impressive performances as part of Huddersfield Giants’ League Leaders winning roster.
Having made over 400 Super League appearances, the half-back has spoken of his excitement at his latest challenge.
"I am really pleased to have signed, it is a challenge I am looking forward to and I see a club progressing from its darkest days to hopefully a brighter future," said Brough.
"The Bradford lads really impressed me in the cup tie back in March, I thought they were the better team, they really stood up against us and that stands the side in good stead.
"I am hoping I can try and bring a winning mentality and great attitude to the side and help when times get tough to knuckle down and get the boys over the line."
Kear, who recently penned a fresh two-year deal to keep him at the club until at least the end of the 2022 season, believes Brough’s capture represents ‘true ambition’ from the club.
“It is a key signing, it shows the true ambition of the club – our priority is to keep our essential players but when you have absolute quality coming available you have to pursue it, we did and we are delighted Danny has signed,” said Kear, who is sponsored by Bradford Bulls Banter.
“We are operating on a tight budget but Danny has agreed to come because he likes the challenge ahead of him and because we have a great relationship.
“After the signings we made this year, there is a gradual assimilation of talent in our ranks and the fans should take great heart from his signing and eagerly anticipate him pulling on the red, amber and black.
“What I want Danny to bring is the element of composure through his experience and he is a very tough competitor and I want that ruthless competitive edge in our squad.
“He will help the younger players realise Super League isn’t a distant dream but a hard-nosed desire and he will is without doubt a huge talent.”
