Menzies in for another year with Bulls

Australian forward Steve Menzies has agreed a one year extension to his contract with Bradford for 2010.

Menzies joined the Bulls following Manly’s Grand Final victory over Melbourne Storm last year and has missed only one of the Bulls 24 games this season, scoring 12 tries and he will be joined at the Grattan Stadium by his former Manly colleagues, Glenn Hall and Heath L’Estrange next season.

Steve Menzies says it was not a hard decision to extend his stay with the Bulls: “I’ve really enjoyed my football here and I think I still have something to offer so when I decided to do another twelve months my first choice was to stay at Bradford. 

“It was an easy decision really. I get on great with everyone at the club, the Coach, the players and the staff and my family are enjoying living over here, so I am delighted to be staying.”

Head Coach Steve McNamara said: “It’s fantastic for the club.  Steve has been everything we expected him to be and more besides.  It’s been a tough season for us and we have probably had to play him more than we wanted with the amount of injuries we have had and he has played some different roles for us. He is a proven professional player who knows his way to the try line and he’s been a super player for us. 

“He’s only missed one game for us and his play has been fantastic.  He’s up there with our leading try scorers, has tremendous offloads and puts in some big defensive hits for us and I am delighted he will be here for another season and I know Steve is too.”
