DALTON Grant reckons the Kear factor can help Bulls frighten the rest of League One.

The Welsh winger jumped at the chance to link up with his international coach again at Odsal this season.

Having worked with the hugely-experienced coach at close quarters, Grant is convinced Kear will steer his new club back in the right direction.

Grant said: "John is one of the reasons that I came over to the club. I love how he works and what he has in place for the next three years for Bradford.

"I know that he is well driven and knows how to get results after playing under him with Wales.

"I think that he will put his own stamp on the team. He knows how to bond a club together and get them playing as a unit."

Grant was looking to play in the north again after leaving London Broncos and became Kear's first signing on a one-season deal. He is one of the ten full-time players in the squad.

The 27-year-old said: "I can't wait to be a part of the revival and help out. I know that Bradford is a big club and I can't wait for the challenge ahead in 2018.

"I'm looking forward to seeing what John does with the team and getting the season started. John is a very good coach and I'm going to enjoy working under him.

"It's going to be a real pleasure working with him at a club level to get Bradford back up to where they should be."

Fellow winger Alex Brown is expected to make his first Bulls appearance in Sunday's home friendly against Sheffield.
