Sam Hallas pens new Bradford deal

Bradford hooker Sam Hallas has signed a one-year contract extension.

Hallas, 23, will enter his fifth season with the club, and was appointed vice-captain ahead of the 2020 campaign.

He said: “I am really pleased to have signed – it is nice to have that security I can carry on doing what I love at a club I love in Bradford.

“Look at how the club is building, retaining John [Kear] and signing someone like Danny Brough are massive coups and really sets the club’s stall out.

“Before the season was halted we were cooking on gas and if we can turn those slight losses into wins we can really push on and move towards where we want to be.”

A former Stanningley junior, Hallas came through the academy ranks at Leeds, making his debut at the 2016 Magic Weekend against Wigan.

He joined the Bulls initially on loan in February 2017, before making the move permanent at the end of that year.

Coach John Kear added: “Having Steve Crossley on board already for 2021, we wanted our second-in-command to stay and be singing from the same hymn sheet and we are delighted he has decided to stay.

“He adds a lot to the side with his character, enthusiasm and given the new rules being implemented – they are ideal for a player of Sam’s ilk.

“If you had 17 Sam Hallas’ you would not go far wrong and it is another statement of intent for the rest of this year and for 2021.”
