Cummins pleased with George capture

Bradford announced the signing of Huddersfield winger Luke George at the weekend on a two-year deal.

George, 25, who was out of contract at the Giants at the end of the year, was on loan at Hull KR earlier this season.

Bulls coach Francis Cummins said: “You talk about building squads but Luke has got pace and can play wing as well as deputising in the centre. That versatility is important because we need competition for places in a squad that’s not the biggest.

“Luke will give us that and will only keep everyone else on their toes.

“He’s got pace, a good carry and it’s definitely a bonus for us that we’ve got someone else who can play a few positions and get over the try-line, which is the ultimate goal.”

George has scored 49 tries in 79 first team appearances since making his professional debut for Wakefield back in 2007.

George said: “Franny has opened the door for me at Bradford and given me a really good opportunity to do something.

“The Bulls are a very prestigious club and have won every trophy possible.

“They’ve had a rough few years and not been as successful as they have in the past but you can see what Franny is trying to move the club forward and get Bradford back to the top.”
