Bradford recruit stand-off Briggs
Bradford have tackled their lack of a specialist stand-off by signing Kyle Briggs from Featherstone Rovers.
Briggs was a product of Leeds' prolific youth system who rebuilt his career at Hunslet and Doncaster after being released by the Rhinos. Last season he was the leading point-scorer in the Featherstone team that reached the Championship Grand Final.
At 23, he has been given a two-year contract at Odsal and a chance to fill the Bulls' problem No 6 position. The club's new coach, Mick Potter, said: "He's a player who has been on Bradford's radar for a couple of years," said the club's new coach, Mick Potter. "It's a chance for him to get a start, because there's a bit of a void to be filled."
Briggs, for whom Bradford have paid an undisclosed fee, said: "I'm sad to be leaving, but these opportunities don't come round too often."
