Bradford Bulls sign Brisbane Tigers speedster

Bradford Bulls

Bradford Bulls have flexed their muscles and shelled out to sign Brisbane Tigers centre Max Lehmann until the end of the season.

The Bulls currently sit sixth in the Championship but are three points shy of second whilst also being three points clear of seventh with plenty of the club’s success this season coming off the back of impressive recruitment.

Head coach Eamon O’Carroll has proved to be the most significant piece of recruitment with the former Wigan man arriving from Catalans Dragons and sparking excitement at Odsal once again.

The former Irish international has brought in players such as Mitch Souter and John Davies as well as loan deals for the likes of Liam Tindall and Jayden Okunbor, although the most influential has been Zac Fulton who has been key in convincing 24-year-old Lehmann to join the Bulls.

Lehmann and Fulton are best mates and now the centre, who can also play on the wing, is determined to have a similar impact to forward Fulton.

It was announced this morning by Bradford Bulls that they’d landed the signature of Max Lehmann with the 24-year-old’s move until the end of the season being subject to international clearance.

Lehmann joins Bradford from Brisbane Tigers, for whom he has scored 16 in 22 since debuting in 2023. He formerly played for Parramatta’s reserve side in the 2022 season but now heads to England to further his career and make an impact.

On making the move to the Championship side, Lehmann told the club’s website: “I’m really excited to join the Bradford Bulls, it’s such a historic club with a history of success. I can’t wait to add to that history,” said Lehmann, who will be sponsored In Memory of the Trotter Family.

“I’ve always wanted to play sports overseas and travel when I can. It’s the best opportunity to do both, so when the chance came I wanted to take it with both hands.”

Discussing his connection with Fulton, he said: “Zac [Fulton] is my best mate and I’ve seen him start to really enjoy his footy here at Bradford and as a result his game has gone to another level. I’ll be aiming to make the same impact in the areas of the game where I’m involved.”

He also made the bold statement that he “can’t wait to get this club back into the Super League”, something that likely now lies in the hands of the club sorting a deal for and improving their stadium, as opposed to their on-field performances in this new IMG era.
