Rhino Diskin in Bulls switch

Bradford have completed a move to hooker Matt Diskin from Yorkshire rivals Leeds.

Diskin, 28, is in his testimonial season with the Rhinos but will now leave the club to join the Bulls on a three-year contract.

Bulls Chairman Peter Hood said: “We are delighted to have captured the signature of Matt. We are always interested in quality players and when a player of Matt’s pedigree unexpectedly became available we moved quickly. He is a high quality player who will add a lot of depth and competition within our squad and our Coach, Mick Potter, is really looking forward to working with him in the future.”

Diskin, who earned one cap for Great Britain, picked up the Harry Sunderland trophy for man of the match in the 2004 Grand Final and won four Super League titles in his ten year spell with the Rhinos.

He said: “It has all happened very quickly but I am really looking forward to joining the Bulls.  They are assembling a very good squad for next season and I feel the move will help me to reinvigorate my career.  At this stage in my career I’ve still got a lot of personal goals I want to fulfil.  I want to play international again and I’ve still got things I want to achieve and I think this move  is what I need to achieve that.”
