Bradford Bulls boss confirms World Cup stars set to return to training including Hull FC target

Bradford Bulls have today announced the signing of Rugby League World Cup star Keven Appo.

The Papua New Guinea star joins the Bulls having starred for the Kumuls in the World Cup playing alongside the likes of Leeds Rhinos star Rhyse Martin and Leigh Leopards trio Nene MacDonald, who has been linked with a move to Headingley, Lachlan Lam and Betfred Championship Player of the Year Edwin Ipape.

After Ipape called on more PNG players to play in top divisions, Apo has joined the Bulls.

He is the latest of a long list of signings after the arrival of Jack Walker and Bodene Thompson from Leeds, Michael Lawrence from Huddersfield Giants as well as the likes of George Roby, the Betfred League 1 Young Player of the Year, on loan.

This isn’t the only cause for excitement at Bradford with the club set to welcome back their Rugby League World Cup stars to training:

“Some of our existing players who played in the World Cup like AJ Wallace, Brad Ho, Chester Butler are all back in and around the building so we are looking healthy, fresh, energised and committed, ready to rip in to an intense pre-season.”

That list includes former Leeds Rhinos academy star AJ Wallace. He has been linked with Castleford Tigers and after that fell apart was linked with Hull FC.

However, last night Serious About Rugby League exclusively revealed that the move to Hull had broken down.

“Yeah there was interest,” Wallace said, “But it is not looking like I’ll be going there.

“The higher ups at the clubs haven’t been able to come to an agreement.”

He then said that he was ready to go at Bradford hoping for regular game time to impress again.
