BRADFORD BULLS are delighted to announce the re-signing of rising star Adam O’Brien.
O’Brien, 21, has agreed a new two-year deal, meaning he will be a Bull until at least the end of 2016.
The young hooker, who has starred in recent weeks, is a product of the club’s hugely-successful Academy – recently deemed the finest in Yorkshire.
He joined Bradford at the age of 16, made his first-team debut back in 2011 and has scored six tries in 25 appearances during the 2014 season.
O’Brien is regarded as one of the British game’s brightest prospects and was a stand-out performer in the Bulls’ recent back-to-back victories over Wigan Warriors and Leeds Rhinos.
“I am really pleased to have secured Adam for at least the next couple of seasons,” said Bradford head coach James Lowes.
“He is a player with masses of potential and has all of the tools required to become a success. His recent performances speak volumes about just how good Adam is.
“He completed his third 80-minute outing, last week, against Leeds and showed his quality. Adam is the kind of player I like to work with.
“He is very brave and is improving with every minute he plays. I believe he will have a big future in the game, so ensuring he remained a part of the team was vital.”
O’Brien becomes coach Lowes’ ninth squad member for 2015, joining team-mates Lee Gaskell, Dale Ferguson, Adam Sidlow and Tom Olbison in agreeing to stay with the Provident Stadium outfit.
