Jarrod Sammut has thanked Bradford fans for their support after he left the club to join Wakefield.
Sammut, 27, opted to make the switch to the Wildcats last week, following a close season of off-the-field problems at Odsal, something which Sammut is no stranger to, having seen his contract at Crusaders cut short when they withdrew from Super League.
In a statement issued through his Twitter account, Sammut said: “I must give a big thanks to the passionate Bradford fans and those involved for all your love and support over the past few years.
“I have loved every minute of my time with the Bulls and have made long lasting memories and friendships which I am grateful for.
“While it hasn’t all been the most pleasant, it has been an experience that I’ll never forget.
“I do apologies for leaving, but it’s what’s best for my family at this point in time. I hope you can understand.
“Thank for you all again for welcoming me into the Bradford Bulls family and a feeling of home away from home.
“I wish you the best of luck for the rest of the season.”
The Maltese international half-back joined Crusaders in 2010 from Penrith Panthers.
He has scored more than 300 points in 74 appearances in this country for Crusaders and the Bulls.
