Huddersfield have continued their raid on the Bradford Bulls today, completing the signing of twenty-three-year-old hooker, Adam O’Brien, on a three-year contract. The Bulls Academy product has made over 100 appearances for the Bulls, including 31 in the 2016 championship, which saw him score 10 tries. He will join former Bulls team mates Lee Gaskell, Paul Clough and Alex Mellor, who have all made the jump to super league team Huddersfield Giants over the past few months.
In other news relating to the Bradford Bulls, new League One team Toronto Wolves have gone on record as willing and ready to jump into the Championship and effectively replace Bradford should no new owners be found, so a new Bradford club can be created from the ashes of the Bulls. Toronto, who will be based half in Canada and half in the UK, have assembled a very good squad containing a number of ex Super League and Championship players that could compete at championship level, however, due to the special requirements needed in fixtures and travel arrangements that come with the trans-Atlantic outfit, Cumbrian team Whitehaven, who were last year relegated from the Championship, look favourites to replace Bradford if required.
