Mark Dunning says latest Bradford Bulls signing wasn’t happy with 2022 and is motivated for new season

Bradford Bulls have added another signing to their ranks as they prepare for a big push for Super League promotion in 2023.

After signing the likes of Leeds Rhinos duo Jack Walker and Bodene Thompson and Huddersfield Giants veteran Michael Lawrence, they have added former Super League outside back Joe Arundel to their ranks.

However, despite pulling off this major coup, the Bulls boss Mark Dunning admitted that Arundel isn’t happy with his 2022 campaign and is eager to put things right:

“From speaking to Joe, I know he isn’t happy with how 2022 panned out and he has a burning desire to get back out there in 2023 and put things right.”

He is also very happy with his squad:

“The squad is looking good, there is lots of progress we can see from the start of pre-season and I am looking forward to getting the lads back in after a well-deserved new year’s break and ramp up the tempo heading towards the trial matches and that first game against Whitehaven.”

It also seems that the Bulls were instantly after Arundel after he left Halifax:

“We have been talking for a couple of weeks now after we were made aware by his agent that he would be available so we are delighted to now get Joe in the building and finally get the deal done.

“He will bring some seniority to our backline; he still has that hunger to compete at the highest level and he will be a very experienced option for us having spent the majority of his career in Super League and at the top end of the Championship.”
