LIAM Johnson has no intention of playing a bit-part role during his year at the Bulls.

The utility forward has joined the Odsal squad on a season-long loan from Huddersfield.

Johnson, 20, is yet to make a senior outing for the Giants after spending the last two campaigns out on loan with Sheffield and Oldham.

Now he is determined to make his mark for the Bulls in their bid to blast straight out of League One.

Johnson said: "I don't want to come over here and just be a seat on the bench or a shirt filler.

"I want to play as often as I can wherever the team needs me to. Originally I'm a second row but I'll play anywhere they need me to."

Johnson follows Giants team-mate Mikey Wood a week into the Bulls' pre-season programme. He will add another option to an imposing forward pack.

He said: "Bradford have a really strong squad for the upcoming season.

"I can't wait to get in there and learn from some of the players like Matty Garside. I think they will really help me develop as a player and help the team out.

"I've spent time with Sheffield in 2017 and Oldham in 2016 and I learned a lot with those clubs.

"I got great feedback from both teams and they said that I played a big role in their seasons. I hope I can do the same for Bradford.

"This is a great club and I can't wait to be part of it."

Johnson featured in 20 games for the Eagles last season, eight from the start. He twice played against the Bulls.
