Newcastle sign Bradford forward Evan Hodgson


Newcastle have signed forward Evan Hodgson from Bradford for the 2021 season.

The 22-year-old back-rower or loose forward has made 13 appearances for the Bulls since making his first team debut in 2017.

Thunder director of rugby Denis Betts said: “Evan had been an outstanding player at Bradford and now has an opportunity to prove how good he is.

“He is a tough kid, with good footwork and a quick play-the-ball and I’m looking forward to seeing him fight for a place.”

Hodgson said: “I was really excited when I found out Newcastle were interested in me for next season and it’s an opportunity I’m really looking forward to.

“The club has some big ambitions and it’s a good place for me to come and to be part of that. I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in.”
