Bradford Bulls boss reveals they has been Super League interest in star player

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 exclusively confirmed that Wallace would be remaining at Bradford until the expiry of his current deal at Odsal at least which comes at the end of 2023.

Now this Super League interest has been confirmed by Bulls boss Mark Dunning who pushed against the notion he was “likely to go” as he praised his performance against the Rhinos this afternoon.

He said: “’Likely to go’ is a tricky one, I don’t know if he was ever likely to go. He was rumoured to go, and there was interest, of course there was and there was going to be because he is a quality rugby league player.

“I thought we saw glimpses of what AJ is capable of and the exciting thing about him and a whole bunch of other of our players is the fact there’s so much development left in them, there is much more we can get out of them.

“I thought he was good today.”
