MATTY Dawson-Jones has vowed to carry on where he left off after extending his Bulls contract.

An option has been taken up with the experienced winger to keep him at the club for 2021.

And Dawson-Jones admitted it was an easy decision to make as he looks to build on his fast start when the players can finally return to the field.

The 29-year-old, who joined the Bulls from Hull FC in January, came bursting out the blocks with two tries in the Championship opener against London Broncos.

He also scored twice more before the pandemic forced the sport to be shut down in March.

Dawson-Jones, who can also play in the centres, will add more Super League experience to John Kear’s squad already bolstered with the high-profile captures of Danny Brough and Aaron Murphy.

He becomes the 13th player to be secured for next year as Kear lays the foundations for a serious push for promotion from the Championship.

Dawson-Jones said: “I am made up to be staying - it was an easy decision.

“John is a big pull in me staying, just as he was me coming to the club, knowing what he is as a coach.

“Although I hadn’t worked with him long I have enjoyed working under him so far and am looking forward to 2021.

“It was a pretty easy transition coming into the club, I knew some of the boys, the likes of Jordan Lilley I had played with before, so they helped me integrate into the team.”

The Bulls’ season finished after running Wakefield close in the Challenge Cup on March 13.

They are still waiting for confirmation on whether the RFL’s proposed autumn competition, now reduced to just four teams, will go ahead.

“It has been a frustrating year,” admitted Dawson-Jones.

“I thought I started really well, hit the ground running and to have this situation sprung on us is frustrating.

“But we have been training hard at home so we can kick on next year and John has recruited well.

“I am looking forward to playing with Broughie and Murphy. I have played with them both before and they are both top quality Super League players.

“It is an exciting prospect just being around players like that, it makes everyone pick their game up.

“We will go into pre-season fitter than ever before and hopefully that’ll lead into us being stronger and battle for promotion in 2021.”

Kear has been impressed with how quickly Dawson-Jones slotted into his side after signing on the eve of the season.

“The fans saw his try scoring potential even in just a few games,” said the Bulls coach. “But one of the other things that really impressed me about Matty is his efforts in bringing the ball out from the back.

“He is another hard-working honest fella who goes through a great amount of work in attack and defence.

“I was very keen to keep Matty for 2021 so we triggered the extension through the clause in his contract and he is happy with that. He is the type of character that we need and want.

“He is another player with a fair few games on his record and he is very durable as well.”
