The change over at Bradford continues with another star signing for the Bulls.

After recently announcing the arrivals of the likes of Brad England as well as the departure of skipper Steve Crossley yesterday, the Bulls continue their squad revamp with another signing.

This comes in the shape of halfback Tom Holmes. Holmes began his career at Castleford where he made over 20 appearances amongst loan moves to Oxford and Batley.

He then had a stint at Featherstone before another crack at Super League with Huddersfield before returning to Featherstone though the incredible competition in the halves at Fev this year with Ryley Jacks, Johnathan Ford, Morgan Smith and Dane Chisolm all in the squad, he moved to Sheffield Eagles on loan and is now set for a new challenge at Bradford signing a two-year deal.

In a statement on the Bulls website, they said:

“Bradford Bulls are delighted to announce we have overcome strong competition to secure the signature of experienced half back Tom Holmes on a two-year deal – with thanks to the Bradford Bulls Squadbooster Association for their support!

“The 26-year-old arrives at Odsal Stadium boasting experience in the sport’s top two tiers – with spells in the Championship at Featherstone Rovers and Sheffield Eagles preceded by time in Super League with Huddersfield Giants and hometown club Castleford Tigers.

“Holmes played an integral role as the Rovers reached the Million Pound Game in 2021 before being beaten by Toulouse Olympique, with the half-back having now amassed over 120 senior appearances to date.

“Bradford boss Mark Dunning has hailed Holmes’ signature as ‘really exciting’ for the club – insisting he will have a positive effect on those around him over the next two years.”
