Olbison stays with Bradford

Forward Tom Olbison has agreed a new one-year deal with Bradford.

Olbison, who played 29 times during 2016 and scored six tries, continues as the longest serving Bull in the squad after joining the youth system as a 15-year-old.
 
The 25 year-old will play in his ninth professional consecutive season for Bradford in 2017 after making his professional debut in the red, amber and black in 2009 against Warrington Wolves.
 
“I’m delighted to have re-signed for the club. I’ve been here a few years now and 2017 is a big year for us after a couple of years in the Championship,” Olbison said.
 
“Moving forward we will definitely be digging deeper and wanting to do what Leigh have done from last season and progress forward.
 
“I’m looking forward to getting in over the next couple of weeks and getting stuck into training.

“Obviously, meeting all the new boys and the young lads coming in, the place will be bouncing and I’m really looking forward to it.”
 
“It’s great to have Tom still here and he’s born and bred, which is a really positive thing,” Bradford Head Coach Rohan Smith said.
 
“He’s come through our programme and he’s staying here and he wants to be here.
 
“It’s not just based around that he’s been through our programme, he’s earned the opportunity to come back again and force his way into the starting team and look for as big an opportunity as he can.”
