Bulls confirm Hunter-Paul return

Bradford confirmed the return of Robbie Hunter-Paul to the club over the weekend.

Hunter-Paul, 37, will become the club’s Deputy Director, with responsibility for business development, starting from Monday July 8th, after leaving his role at Huddersfield.

He said: “I’ve known Gerry and Omar for a long time and our paths crossed when I was there between 1994 and 2005.

“We had a conversation over a meal with the rest of the board and everyone was just talking about their ideas and aspirations for the club. They felt I could play a big part in that.  They said we want you to bring your resources to the party and help us take the club not back to where we once were, but to create a brand new legacy.

“Omar and Gerry’s vision is to create a brand new legacy with their imprint on it and to take that foundation of success and grow it.

“They believe I can play a massive part helping to deliver that. And you know what’s even better than that? I believe I can as well.”

Hunter-Paul made more than 240 appearances for the Bulls, scoring 224 tries, including a hat-trick in the 1996 Challenge Cup final, after which he was named the Lance Todd Trophy winner for man of the match.

Bulls chairman Omar Khan said: “I am delighted that Robbie Hunter–Paul is returning to the club. Robbie is an iconic figure in the City of Bradford and to have him return to the club, where he was a massive part of its success, will bring great benefits. I have personally known Robbie for almost twenty years and I wish him every success in his role at the club.”

Hunter-Paul, who also played for Huddersfield, Salford and Leigh, won 33 international caps for New Zealand during his playing career.

Since retiring from the game in 2011, he has been working for the Giants in a business development role.
