Bradford Bulls could be set to sign another ex-Super League player

Bradford Bulls could be set to sign another former Super League player.

The Bulls have already made some impressive signings bringing in Super League experience such as Leeds Rhinos duo Jack Walker and Bodene Thompson as well as Huddersfield Giants veteran Michael Lawrence.

Now Masi Matongo could be the latest to join the club.

The prop started his career at Hull FC making 59 appearances in the black and white after debuting against Wigan Warriors.

He spent a brief stint on loan at Bradford in 2021 before joining York in 2022.

Over the weekend, Matongo featured for the Bulls reserves in a friendly which took place on Saturday.

On this, coach Mark Dunning said to Bulls TV: “Yeah he played for Bradford in our reserve game yesterday and he did very well.

On a potential move for the prop, Dunning said: “That’s to be confirmed, Masi has been training with us for a while and we’ve done a good deed by Masi. He was injured and on the outer of everywhere and we’ve had  a good look at him and got some talks to have with him and his agent.

“We’ll keep them internal until we’ve got something to announce.”

One of the big signings Bradford made for the new season endured the worst possible start at the weekend to his Bradford career as Jack Walker was forced off after four minutes.

Dunning revealed that it was a leg injury and that he would be assessed today:

“We haven’t got an update yet, he went off after five minutes with an injury so he will be assessed tomorrow and we’ll go from there.

“It’s a leg injury that all I know. We will have to assess him in the injury clinic tomorrow.”

It has been suggested that Walker suffered a suspected hamstring injury.

Bradford went on to win 24-8 in his absence.
