Bradford snap up Welsh prop Fleming

Bradford have confirmed the signing of Welsh international prop Dan Fleming on a one-year deal for 2021.

It will be the 28-year-old’s second stint with the Bulls, having spent two seasons with the club in 2015 and 2016.

Since then, he’s had spells with Toronto Wolfpack and Halifax, as well finishing this season with a short spell at Castleford in Super League.

“We are really pleased to have signed Dan,” said Bradford head coach John Kear. “Obviously he has been at the Bulls before and he enjoyed his time at the club then.

“He has been to the likes of Toronto Wolfpack, Halifax RLFC and Castleford Tigers since and whenever he has played against us he has always caused problems. Obviously knowing him from our time together at Wales I know not only can he play a high number of minutes but also play at a very high level.

“He is an experienced player but at 28, (and) he has plenty of time in front of him and he is in a good stage of his career. Dan knows that he will get good game time should his form warrant it but he will be good for the likes of Levy Nzoungou and Ebon Scurr too.

“He is a great example for them and he sits alongside Steve Crossley who has enjoyed a similar career path. We have a good blend in the pack and we are delighted to have Dan on board.”
