Bradford Bulls have confirmed the signing of Stand Off Kyle Briggs from Featherstone Rovers for an undisclosed fee. Briggs has signed a two year contract with a further year's option.

The 23 year old, who is a product of Stanningley ARLFC, scored 376 points in 43 appearances for Featherstone Rovers after joining them from Doncaster midway through the 2009 season. The youngster, who started his career at Leeds Rhino's, was named Players Player of the Year last season and was a member of Rovers' Grand Final squad.

Kyle Briggs is excited about joining the Bulls:

"It came out of the blue and happened really quickly but it was an opportunity I just couldn't turn down. To get the chance to join Bradford is fantastic and I'd like to thank Featherstone for agreeing to release me to join the Bulls. I'm sad to be leaving there but opportunities like this don't come round that often. I owe a lot to Daryl Powell and Ryan Sheridan at Featherstone. They've done wonders for me over the last couple of years."

Mick Potter said:

"It's an opportunity for Kyle to show what he's got. He's a player who's been on Bradford's radar for a couple of years and it's a chance for him to get a start. There's a bit of a void to be filled. Even though we've got players to play stand-off, there's an opportunity for someone to step up and really secure it as their position."

Rovers Coach Daryl Powell is glad to have played a part in Briggs' development at Featherstone:

"I am delighted for him. He is a quality individual and I have been proud to see him develop within the club over the last 18 months/two years. It is a great opportunity for him and I hope he will be able to take it. I am confident he is a player who can step up and have an impact at Super League level."

Briggs will leave with the rest of the squad for warm weather training in Lanzarote tomorrow.
