Bradford Bulls have announced the capture of Samoan International Frank Winterstein.

Winterstein, who was with Widnes for the past two years, has signed a one year contract with the club and will join up with his new colleagues when his World Cup commitments with Samoa are completed.

Frank Winterstein is glad to be on board with the club:

“The Bulls have brought in some good signings and kept a couple of guys who were on loan there. They will definitely have a good squad next year and I’m looking forward to moving over.

“I’ve met Franny, his coaching team and all the backroom staff. I was really impressed with all the facilities at Tong and what their vision is to go forward.

“It’s a great club and hopefully we can bring it back to its glory days. It’s about gelling as a team and really pushing hard for a play-off spot.

“I’m definitely an edge back-rower. I’ve been thrown in at the centre a couple of times but I don’t really mind what happens - whatever is best for the team.”

Bulls Coach Francis Cummins is delighted with the signing:

“Frank is a great signing for us. He is big and powerful but he has great skills and can play in a few positions. I was very impressed with him when I met him and I am sure he will prove to be a valuable member of our squad.”

Bulls CEO Robbie Hunter-Paul said:

“I am delighted we have completed the signing of Frank for the Bulls. He brings to us size, skill and now International experience at the highest level. I was very impressed with him in the game against New Zealand, a game that, whilst Samoa didn’t win, they certainly put in a sterling performance against the World Champions and Frank played a major part in that. His recent seasons with Widnes in Super League have shown his talent and I am sure he will be a big asset to the club.”
