Danny Addy: new deal with Bradford Bulls
Bradford Bulls utility player Danny Addy has signed a new 12-month deal to become the fourth out-of-contract player to commit his future to the club.
The 21-year-old made 13 appearances in Super League during 2012 and after Chev Walker, Manase Manuokafoa and Jarrod Sammut recently agreed new contracts, Bulls head coach Francis Cummins admitted he was thrilled to secure the services of Addy as well.
"I am delighted we have been able to retain Danny for next season," he said.
"He is a very talented player who, whilst he does offer great utility value, should be looking to be more position specific next season.
"I am looking for Danny to put his hand up and stake a claim for a place in the back row."
Addy himself was pleased to secure his future for next season.
"Franny and I spoke this week and he told me that he wants me playing in the back row," he said.
"I think that's my best position - loose forward or second row - and I would be more than happy to do a job there week in, week out.
"Franny played a big part in my decision to sign a new deal. What he said convinced me that this is the club I definitely want to be at for a while now and I'm absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract."
