“Anything less than promotion would be disappointing” – Championship star backs his side for Super League

Leeds Rhinos academy product AJ Wallace is one of the most exciting young forwards in Britain.

The Bradford Bulls backrow has shone in the Betfred Championship at Odsal in recent times ever since he made the move after coming through the academy system at Leeds Rhinos.

He has stirred up plenty of interest from Super League clubs and a couple of sides have chased his signature going into the 2023 season.

In Lee Radford’s quest to add young British players to his squad at the Jungle, the Castleford Tigers boss made a move for Wallace to no avail.

As this fell away, it was Radford’s former club Hull FC who made a move for Wallace.

Many expected him to make the move to the MKM Stadium heading into the 2023 season however Serious About Rugby League exclusively revealed in the past that the move had fallen through.

This came as talks between the higher ups at Hull FC and Bradford come to something of a stand still as they struggled to settle on a final agreement.

Serious About Rugby League then can exclusively confirmed that Wallace will be remaining at Bradford until the expiry of his current deal at Odsal at least which comes at the end of 2023.

Now the young backrower is excited by the new season and believes the Bulls should achieve promotion in 2023 based on their recruitment.

“Yes it’s going good. Energy is high and the atmosphere a lot better than last year,” he said to Serious About Rugby League.

“With the players we’ve got and the attitude they’ve brought. Anything less than promotion would be disappointing.

“Looking like an exciting season to be honest.”
