Bradford have signed Rhys Evans on a one-year deal following his release from Leigh.

The Wales international, who can play on the wing or at centre, came through the ranks at Warrington Wolves, where he made over 100 appearances.

Evans joined the Centurions ahead of 2018 but was released from his contract recently due to the club going part-time.

On signing Evans for 2019, Bulls’ coach John Kear said: “I’m really pleased that we have brought Rhys on board, he is someone that I myself have admired as a player for many years.

“With his introduction, there’s going to be even further competition for places in an extremely impressive three-quarter line.

“He brings a lot of experience to the side and we know from his career history that he is going to be a menace in the Championship.

“Rhys is just another important piece to the growing jigsaw puzzle here at Bradford, and we can’t wait to see what he can offer the club.”
