Bradford hooker Adam O’Brien has signed a new two-year deal.
O’Brien, 21, is a product of the club’s academy and has scored six tries in 25 appearances this season.
He said: “My focus was always to stay at the club. I have been with the Bulls for over five years and felt there was no reason for me to leave. The club provided me with a massive opportunity and I owe it to those who have stood by me and improved me as a player.
“The squad for next year is looking very good and I am really impressed with the signings being made.
“I am already looking forward to getting pre-season out of the way, so we can get playing – and back up into Super League.”
The Halifax-born forward, who made his debut back in 2011, starred in the recent wins over Wigan and Leeds.
Coach James Lowes said: “I am really pleased to have secured Adam for at least the next couple of seasons.
“He is a player with masses of potential and has all of the tools required to be a success. His recent performances speak volumes about just how good Adam is.
“He is very brave and is improving with every minute he plays. I believe he will have a big future in the game, so ensuring he stayed with us was vital.”
