Addy pushing for loose forward role in 2014

Scotland international Danny Addy is aiming to make Bradford’s loose forward position his own in the new season.

Addy, 23, has performed across the field for the Bulls, both in the pack and as a half-back, but he feels that 13 is where he plays his best rugby.

Luckily, Bradford head coach Francis Cummins shares this view, and even likened Addy to Wigan captain Sean O’Loughlin.

“With a small squad you have to chop and change,” explained Cummins.

“And due to Danny’s skill-set he is used in a lot of positions.

“However, down the line we both see him playing in a loose forward role similar to that of Sean O’Loughlin.”

Such high-comparisons are sure to add to Addy’s confidence, which is already sky-high after his World Cup exploits with the Bravehearts.

“The World Cup has given me the appetite to play in big games more often,” said Addy.

“Playing against New Zealand was probably the biggest game I’ve ever played in, and hopefully the experience of it will help me.”
