ETU Uaisele was tonight confirmed as the Bulls' eighth signing for 2015 after agreeing a two-year deal with the club.

The former NRL star, who enjoyed spells Down Under with Parramatta Eels and Penrith Panthers, is currently plying his trade with Kingstone Press Championship Sheffield Eagles on loan from Featherstone.

An explosive three-quarter, 29-year-old Uaisele – who can operate both at centre and on the wing – scored three tries during the 2008 World Cup.

“I see coming to play for the Bulls as a massive chance for me,” said Uaisele.

“I grew up watching the likes of Lesley Vainikolo, he was unreal for Bradford, and just cannot wait to get started and have a good spell here."

Uaisele follows Dave Petersen, Jake Mullaney, Dan Fleming, Dale Ferguson, Lee Gaskell, Tom Olbison and Adam Sidlow in coming on board at Odsal for next season.
