Keith Lulia signs Bulls deal

Bradford had announced the signing of Cook Island International and former St George Illawarra Dragons center Keith Lulia for the 2012 season.

The 6ft 4″ center, who celebrates his 24th birthday today, has penned a two-year deal and is looking forward to joining up with his new team mates:

“My fiancé Kelly and I are extremely excited about the challenge ahead. I did plenty of my own research into Bradford’s history and have monitored their efforts this season.

“They are a club with a proud tradition and are on the rise. I’m excited to be part of their future and I thank them for the professional manner in which all negotiations have taken place.

“I’m really looking forward to getting there for the 2012 season and I’m super keen to prove myself in the English Super League. I know my decision will prove to be a winner for both parties.”

Despite leaving the NRL at a relatively young age, Keith states it wasn’t as difficult decision as you may think:

“I wouldn’t have committed to go overseas unless I knew I was in good hands and ready for the transition.  Mick Potter was an assistant at the St George Illawarra Dragons when I was there as a youngster. I spoke to him about the Bulls and he convinced me the club is going places. I can’t wait.”

Commenting on the signing, Bulls Coach Mick Potter was delighted to secure the services of a player he rates highly:

“Keith is a fantastic acquisition for the club.  I have monitored his progress since he was a Junior in Wollongong playing with Port Kembla . He is a dynamic outside back that can beat people and he is a solid defender.

“I think he will really make a mark in Super League in the future and I am delighted to have captured him at such a young age.”
