BRADFORD Bulls waved goodbye to winger Dalton Grant today, as League One side London Skolars signed him until the end of the season.

Grant is a Welsh international, so had been playing under John Kear for club and country, and he made an explosive start to life at Bradford.

After signing from London Broncos at the end of 2017, he tore up League One defences in 2018. He played a key part in Bulls gaining promotion back to the second tier, scoring 18 tries in 25 appearances.

But the winger found his playing time limited last season, making just 13 appearances, and he will now get the chance to start afresh back in the capital.

Speaking to the official Skolars website, Grant, who will also work as a community coach for the club, said: “Rugby has shaped my life and given me endless opportunities for the past 10 years.

“I am now ready for a new challenge where I can put my sports degree and rugby experience into action by working with the club and local schools for the next 10 months.

“With this new challenge, I can help younger sportsmen gain opportunities, help develop skills and give something back to the sport.

“From a playing perspective, I am looking forward to playing with experienced players and also the up and coming talent that London Skolars have in the squad.

“I expect to get some good wins under our belt at the start of the season and see how we progress as a team in the league.”

Reacting to his first training session with the Skolars, the 29 year-old said: “All the boys welcomed me straight into the team. I’ve seen some old friends and faces which was nice. I am mainly focused on working hard for the club on and off the pitch.”
