Bradford Bulls have announced they have completed the signing of Huddersfield Giants winger Luke George on a two-year contract.

George, 25, who was out of contract at the Giants at the end of the year, was on loan at Hull Kingston Rovers earlier this season and has scored 49 tries in 79 appearances since turning professional with Wakefield Wildcats in 2007.

Bulls Coach Francis Cummins feels the player will add a lot to his squad:

“You talk about building squads but Luke has got pace and can play wing as well as deputising in the centre. That versatility is important because we need competition for places in a squad that’s not the biggest.

“Luke will give us that and will only keep everyone else on their toes.

“He’s got pace, a good carry and it’s definitely a bonus for us that we’ve got someone else who can play a few positions and get over the try-line, which is the ultimate goal.”

Luke George is relishing the opportunity:

“Franny has opened the door for me at Bradford and given me a really good opportunity to do something.

“The Bulls are a very prestigious club and have won every trophy possible.

“They’ve had a rough few years and not been as successful as they have in the past but you can see what Franny is trying to move the club forward and get Bradford back to the top.”

Bulls Deputy Director Robbie Hunter-Paul said:

“I am delighted we have signed such an experienced Super League player.  Luke certainly knows his way to the try line and he will be a great addition to our squad.

"During the time we were together at the Giants, Luke was amongst the most prolific try scorers the club had had for some time and we are looking forward to him extending his record with the Bulls.”
