Former Bradford Bulls captain to play on in 2023

Former Bradford Bulls captain Steve Crossley has confirmed he will play on in 2023.

Crossley is one of the Championship’s most experienced players with over 260 games for Bradford, Dewsbury Rams, Featherstone Rovers and Toronto Wolfpack.

His career started in 2010, when he started the first of his three stints at the Bulls.

Championship moves to Dewsbury and Featherstone then came about for the 32-year-old, as he racked up 87 appearances before a Super League move came his way in 2015.

Crossley made six appearances for the Castleford Tigers in the top-flight, all coming from the bench.

The forward then returned for his second stint with Bradford at the back end of 2015, and then for the 2016 season.

He made 39 appearances for his hometown club before a move to Toronto Wolfpack in 2017.

Crossley has been back at the Bulls since 2018, where he has made over 120 appearances and scored over 20 tries.

He was let go by the once Super League Champions at the end of the current season but has since spoken out about his hometown club treating players and staff members disrespectfully.

Now, he has announced on Twitter that he will continue to play next year.

Crossley tweeted: “Was going to wait til January to decide where my head was with the game but f**k it!! Let’s go again”

There is no indication whether Crossley will return to the Bulls once again but it is safe to say wherever he goes he will be a valuable asset with his strength and vast experience.
