JOHN Kear has dipped into his Wales squad to bring winger Dalton Grant to Odsal.

The Welsh international has signed a one-year deal for the Bulls after leaving London Broncos.

Grant admitted the prospect of teaming up again with Kear, who he played under in the World Cup, was a big attraction.

"I came back from the World Cup and started pre-season with London, then I knew that John was going to Bradford and I was interested in joining the club," he said.

"Bradford are moving forward and they look like a really promising club with a lot to offer.

"This is going to be a great move for me and will help see my goals progress. Bradford are a side that should be pushing for at least a top spot in the Championship."

The 27-year-old will be one of the full-time players in Kear's squad, which has been light on the wings.

Grant, who previously played for South Wales Scorpions, Barrow and Dewsbury, intends to pass on his experience to some of the youngsters in the ranks.

"It's certainly going to be a change from being one of the younger players to an older one, now that I am in a very young squad," he said.

"I will try and pass on any experience that I can. I know how John likes to play so it will make it easier for some of the boys if I can help others out.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting the boys on Thursday, followed by a big game on Boxing Day. I can't wait to put the jersey on and get playing."

Grant is likely to play some part in next week's friendly against Halifax at Odsal, which kicks off a programme of five warm-up games ahead of the League One season.

He said: "I'm looking forward to the challenge. We are going to set the bench mark for how we want to start the season.

"Bradford are no underdogs even though they have gone down a league.

"I always try to give 100 per cent for whatever club I'm playing for and give the fans what they want.

"Bradford have always had a big following and it has always been a really good atmosphere when I have played against them.

"So it would be nice to be on the other end and hear the fans get behind them and cheer the boys on to victory."
