WINGER WALLIS JETS IN FOR 2021
WE are delighted to announce Elliot Wallis will join the club on loan from Super League outfit Hull Kingston Rovers – for the 2021 campaign!
The 20-year-old – who had a brief spell on loan at Betfred Championship side York City Knights this year – is a product of the City of Hull Academy.
Winger Wallis boasts Super League experience courtesy of his time at the Robins – making six appearances, scoring two tries.
Hull-born Wallis – who also features for the Nigerian National Team – has spoken of his excitement at joining the Bulls and has offered Bradford supporters an insight into what they can expect next year.
“I am very excited to be pulling on the Bradford shirt - it is a club with a lot of history and identity and I am really looking forward to getting stuck in,” said Wallis.
“It has been a long year but I have been working hard off the field and kept myself in shape and I am really looking forward to getting a chance to prove myself next season.
“I am really looking forward to playing in a team with with two very experienced halves and I will try my best to learn as much as I can from the both in my time at Bradford.
“The Bradford fans can expect speed, aggression and maximum effort from me in every match I play and I cannot wait to get going.
Bradford boss John Kear believes Wallis will add further competition in an impressive looking back line – insisting the winger will have a point to prove when taking to the field next term.
“The reason we signed Elliot [Wallis] and Reece last week was to provide extra competition for places – they are two young men who are very eager and have a point to prove,” said Kear, who is sponsored by Bradford Bulls Banter.
“We have now got 11 backs for next year and both will get opportunities – Elliot is further down the line than Reece and we have him for the full year and we are delighted with that.
“We have built a good relationship with Hull Kingston Rovers and benefitted from that with Elliot’s signing – he is a really big, strong, strapping wingman who I am looking forward to seeing take his opportunities in games”
