Bradford Bulls have confirmed the signing of Rugby League World Cup star for Papua New Guinea Keven Appo for 2023.
Bulls boss Mark Dunning revealed that they had been chasing their latest signing before the World Cup started: “I am really, really pleased we have managed to get the deal done – this started prior to the World Cup we identified him as someone we wanted then after which the World Cup has only shown us and everyone how good he is.”
He said he was very happy with where the squad currently is potentially hinting that their terrific recruitment may have come to an end after signing Leeds Rhinos duo Jack Walker and Bodene Thompson and of course Huddersfield Giants veteran Michael Lawrence.
“I am really content with where we are at the moment, Michael [Lawrence] joined us last week and has come straight into training, Keven will join us in due course when he’s rested from the World Cup.”
He also revealed that their World Cup stars are set to return soon including a Hull FC transfer target AJ Wallace.
“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.”
However, last night Serious About Rugby League exclusively revealed that his move to Hull FC had broken down.
