Leeds Rhinos half-back Jordan Lilley has signed for Bradford Bulls on a loan deal until the end of the 2019 season.
Having had a stint at Odsal last year during the Bulls’ relegation season in the Championship, Lilley failed to break into Leeds’ first team on a regular basis.
The youngster is now in John Kear’s plans and goes straight into contention for Sunday’s match against fellow League 1 high-flyers York City Knights.
Kear commented: “This signing is a further statement of intent from the Bulls in adding quality players to an already strong squad,”
“I look forward to working with Jordan and harnessing his ability, skills, and enthusiasm for the good of the team.”
Bradford chairman Andrew Chalmers added: “Jordan is an extremely talented player and he really gelled with the team last year,”
“He’s going to play a crucial role in the side for the rest of the year as we enter the race to achieve promotion.”
