Bradford win Sculthorpe chase

Bradford have beaten off competition from two fellow Super League clubs to sign Danny Sculthorpe on a two-year deal.

Sculthorpe, 30, started his career at Leeds and has played Super League for Wigan, Castleford and Wakefield and spent the latter part of last season on loan at Huddersfield Giants where he impressed Coach Nathan Brown with his attitude and his skills.

Bulls Coach Steve McNamara is delighted with the addition of Sculthorpe to his squad: “Danny is an old-fashioned English-style front-rower, a real ball-playing forward. We needed to make another acquisition in that area with Sam leaving. Danny Sculthorpe is his own person but he’s an outstanding footballer who has caused us trouble in the past.  When I’ve coached against him, we’ve really had to counter him in terms of his fantastic off-load ability in any situation. He’s one of a dying breed.  He will suit the way we want to play the game.”

Sculthorpe can´t wait to get started with the Bulls.

He said: “I’m looking forward to a bit of stability and Bradford are a massive club. It’s a big challenge and I cannot wait to get started. Odsal is a stadium where I’ve always enjoyed playing even as an away player. It will be even better to have that support behind me.”
