Bradford have confirmed the signing of Colton Roche from Huddersfield on a permanent deal until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old joined the Bulls on a season-long loan deal as part of a deal that saw England Academy international Oliver Wilson join the Giants in April.

Roche has impressed while in his second spell at Odsal, and the Bulls have now made his loan move permanent.

Bradford coach John Kear commented: “It is great news – you saw the potential of Colton Roche in his first spell here when ended up earning a Super League contract.

“He is very fresh but he is still learning our structures and the way we play but there is plenty of games for him to do that.

“We are very happy to have him and I am sure he can keep on working to his potential in a Bulls shirt.”
