Matty Blythe: Joining Bradford Bulls on season-long loan
Bradford Bulls have signed Warrington Wolves' Matty Blythe on a season-long loan.
Blythe, who can play at centre or back row forward, will join the Bulls for pre-season training before spending the whole of the 2013 season at Odsal.
Bulls coach Francis Cummins is delighted to have captured the 23-year-old, and said in a club statement: "Matty's a handful and is a real player of the game - very physical with a great offload.
"(Warrington) want him to play and get that experience as well. Ultimately, after his time here, he may well go back to Warrington and become a regular.
Blythe added: "I'm really looking forward to it. I met with Franny Cummins a couple of weeks ago and he sold it to me straight away. I need to be playing every week because I'm not getting any younger.
"I can obviously play in the forwards but I see centre as my best position and that's where I'd like to establish myself.
"Being able to play a number of positions should help Bradford next year."
