Jefferies makes Bulls return

Bradford Bulls have today announced that they have re-signed former half back Ben Jeffries from Wakefield Wildcats.

Jeffries spent two years at the Bulls in 2008-9 and made 49 appearances, scoring 15 tries.  He joins the Bulls for the rest of this season and 2012.

Bulls Coach Mick Potter is delighted to have the Half Back available at this stage of the season:

“Ben is a quality player and he’s been at the Bulls before so he knows what the club’s about.

He can play half-back or five-eighth, can kick the ball and adds value to our squad.  He potentially can play a few more years after this so he’s by no means over the hill and could play a part for us in the future.”

Ben Jeffries admitted the move came out of the blue:

“It was a surprise but I was excited to hear about the interest, although it was hard to leave my team-mates halfway through a season.  It’s good to be coming back to Bradford. I’m not coming in blindfolded, I’ve played with half this squad before so I know what to expect and I’m looking forward to it.”
