Bulls revolution lures Royston

Bradford confirmed the signing of Halifax utility back Shad Royston at the weekend.

Royston, 28, is a seasoned Championship campaigner following spells at Batley and Doncaster before he arrived at The Shay, and he previously played for Cronulla in the NRL before his arrival in the UK.

The current Championship top try scorer, with 30 tries this season, Royston has racked up 103 tries in 102 appearances for Halifax.

Bulls Chairman Peter Hood said: “Shad has been a big success in Co-operative League and we feel he will add greatly to our squad depth for next season.  He is a proven try scorer and his versatility will be a big asset to the Bulls.”

The Australian born player qualifies as a Federation Trained Player on the salary cap under RFL rules.

Royston added: “I’m really excited about it. It’s a great opportunity and I’m really looking forward to it. I think Bradford will have a good year next year and it’s an exciting time to be part of the club. Speaking to the coaches and looking at what is happening, I get the feeling there is a big buzz around the club at the moment.”
