DEWSBURY Rams have signed Bulls centre or wing Sam Wood on dual registration.

Wood, who is Dewsbury's first 'dual' signing, will provide cover following the banning of former Bulls player Ben Hellewell for an incident which occurred in a Featherstone Rovers Academy fixture.

With several other players carrying knocks, Rams head coach Glenn Morrison has moved swiftly to bolster his squad as his side continue to jostle for position in the Championship play-offs.

“Sam is a quality young player who has already made nine appearances for the Bulls in Super League, including five this season,” said Morrison.

“He will add vital depth to our squad, which is exactly what we need as we approach this critical stage of the season.”
