Bradford have signed Aaron Murphy from Huddersfield on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old back-rower has made 251 career appearances for Wakefield and Huddersfield, scoring 94 tries.

Bradford coach John Kear said: “I feel he is one of biggest signings the club has made since I came in, he will add greatly to the group because he is a real team before self player and he is the type of person we want to join the group.

“He is a warrior, you can see through how he plays he leaves nothing at all on the pitch and is key in the dressing room.

“He is very honest, hard working, tough and gives his all week in, week out. You don’t worry about him, he is consistently good.

“Edging towards 300 super league games that’s a fair few runs on the board and he has played in every position except halves and hooker, so not only is he a warrior he is very versatile.

“It is another sign that the club is getting a reputation as a well-run club and he believes in the project. I feel there is absolutely no negative in the signing.

“If you asked Danny (Brough) whether he wanted him with or against on his side, he doesn’t take a backward step and gives 100% every minute.”
