BULLS have re-signed forward Steve Crossley on a two-year deal.

The prop returns to the Provident Stadium for his third spell at the club, originally making his debut in the red, amber and black back in 2010 against Crusaders.

The 26-year-old rejoins the club having spent last season helping Toronto Wolfpack gain promotion from League One.

The 6ft 5in Bradford Academy graduate will bolster an already powerful pack including the likes of Ross Peltier, Mikey Wood, Liam Kirk and James Davies.

Co-owner Andrew Chalmers is delighted with the recruitment of the Bradford-born former Super League prop.

He said: “Steve will offer a lot to the team. He is a really experienced player and will come into a rather young pack, one that is still developing, and help them grow as players.

“He is still in his prime. He was held back a little with an injury last year but he will a huge part of our team going forward into 2018.

“Speaking to Steve it’s clear how much this move means to him. Being a local lad the club has always been at the forefront of his mind and he always kept a soft spot in his heart for the Bulls.”

The former Clayton amateur originally left Bulls in 2011 and had spells at Dewsbury and Featherstone before signing for Castleford for the 2015 season.

He only made six appearance for the Tigers and rejoined Bulls for a second spell in the same year before leaving for Toronto at the end of the 2016 campaign.
