Bradford have signed Antonio Kaufusi on loan from Huddersfield - and the forward could be set to make his debut for the Bulls on Sunday.
"We are absolutely delighted to have someone of Antonio's ability on board."
The 29-year-old has been placed straight into coach Francis Cummins' 19-man squad for the game against Warrington after joining from the Giants on a temporary basis.
Former Australia international Kaufusi has also previously played in Super League for London Broncos and will bolster Bradford's pack as they bid to move away from the foot of the table.
"We are absolutely delighted to have someone of Antonio's ability on board," said Cummins. "He is an exceptional talent, who packs plenty of power and presence.
"He brings further experience to our team and we are sure he will make a huge impact during his time here.
"Antonio has representative honours, which are not easy to come by, and has spent a huge amount of time playing at top level - both in Super League and the NRL.
"I am sure he will fit straight in and I look forward to seeing what he can do."
Kaufusi will not be the only new face if he is selected for the clash with the Wolves at the Provident Stadium; Joe Arundel looks set to feature for the hosts after arriving on a temporary basis from Hull FC.
