Bradford Bulls hooker Thomas Doyle has signed a new deal for the 2021 season.
Doyle came through the academy ranks in 2019, and scored two tries on his debut against Rochdale Hornets. He scored two tries in four matches prior to the cancellation of the season.
He told the club website: “John [Kear] was very important in my decision as was all the coaching staff, as a group we all try catch his eye with our performances.
“I thought I started the year quite well and built a lot of confidence from the games against London and Featherstone, two teams who were serious contenders for promotion.
“That is now the target for us next year and I know all the lads will be on the same wavelength.
“I want to help towards that goal and get as much game time as I can and I am very happy to be doing that under John Kear.”
Kear added: “He has not disappointed in any game he has played and he is definitely someone whose better years are in front of him – but he is a very good player now with a great deal of improvement to come.
“He is not overawed by who he is playing against or with and he is very respectful and that is the a sign of the bloke we have got.
“I am delighted he is here for another year and he is developing rapidly into a very good player.
“The squad is shaping up very nicely with more to be announced in due course, 2021 is shaping up to be a very good year but hopefully we can get back out there in 2020 for our supporters.”
