Wood remains at Bulls

Rising talent Sam Wood has agreed a new three-year deal with the Bradford Bulls.

The club's former Under-19s Academy captain went on to make a trio of assured Super League appearances last season, having debuted during the Bulls' Challenge Cup defeat of Rochdale earlier this year.

Wood arrived at The Provident Stadium in 2010 and his new deal will keep him here until at least the end of the 2016 campaign.

"I am absolutely thrilled to have been offered a new contract to stay at Bradford," said Wood, who turns 20 next month.

"This is the club I want to be at and so there was zero hesitation when it came to me re-signing.

"I think this could be the start of something very special and I want nothing more than to succeed as a Bradford Bull.

"I have played a few Super League games now and I am hungry for more.

"Next year will be full of opportunity, with players fighting it out for spots in the team, and I am ready for the challenge.

"Pre-season training is going really well, I am loving being around the first-team squad full-time. The players who have come in are very exciting and hugely talented, and I believe there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about 2014."

Francis Cummins has hailed the efforts of the ex-Siddal amateur, with the Bulls head coach insisting Wood has more than earned an extended stay.

"He has been absolutely brilliant after earning a couple of opportunities in Super League and we believe he will only get better from here," said Cummins.

"The new deal is a reward for Sam's hard work and effort. He is developing superbly and, having captained the under-19s, I feel he has a big future here.

"His commitment has been fantastic and he is only going to further improve."
