Bradford swoop for Sammut

Bradford have wasted no time in snapping up influential half back Jarrod Sammut from Crusaders on a one-year deal.

Sammut has been with the Welsh club for two seasons, but with Crusaders withdrawing their Super League franchise bid, the Aussie was always going to be a hot target for clubs, with Bradford winning the race.

The 5ft 7″ half back has also played for Penrith in the NRL, where he made 38 appearances. He is also an active member of the Maltese International set up.

Jarrod commented “The history of the club speaks for itself and they’ve got a good team there, which has been unlucky with injuries this season.  I spoke to a few people before making the decision and nobody could speak highly enough about the club, so that that put me at ease.

“There were other options but Bradford was the most appealing and the opportunity is one I’m really looking forward to and I aim to make the most of it.”

Bulls Head Coach Mick Potter is delighted with the signing “Jarrod is going to be of great benefit to us. He’s a player who can play nine, six, seven or one and you could perhaps throw him into the centres if you wanted.

“He’s a Rugby League player who loves playing, he’s a player that’s exciting to watch, he can win you games and he can come up with an unorthodox play. It’s a very good signing for us.”
