Carnegie World Club Champions, Bradford Bulls, have today announced the signing of Full Back Michael Platt on a two year contract.
Platt, 22, was formerly with Castleford and his signing follows the Tigers relegation from the engage Super League. Manchester based Platt was previously with Rochdale Hornets after starting his career at Salford City Reds.
Michael Platt is delighted to have been signed by the Bulls: “This is a big move for me after playing at the so-called smaller clubs. There was interest elsewhere but once Bradford Bulls came calling, I had to take it as it's just too big to turn down. The Bulls have been in five Grand Finals in a row and I'm really looking forward to now competing at the highest level and I'm coming here to win things.
"I was gutted when Cas went down – it's a nice club with good people – but something good has come out of it for me. At Bradford, there'll be a better environment, better players and hopefully I can raise my game to another level. That's what I need to do.”
Bulls Coach Steve McNamara said: "We're really pleased to get Michael. He's had a good season with Castleford and fits a lot of criteria for us in terms of age, speed and attacking qualities. He's the potential to improve a lot, lot more and we're looking forward to working with him."
