UTILITY back Jake Butler-Fleming has joined the Bulls on a one-month loan.

The 26-year-old Aussie arrives from Toronto Wolfpack as part of the dual-reg agreement between the clubs.

Butler-Fleming only signed full-time with Toronto at the start of the season after initially penning a one-year deal for York. He scored two tries against Swinton in his only Championship appearance so far.

Bulls coach John Kear believes his versatility will be very useful in the Odsal squad.

Kear said: “He’s ideal for us at the minute. He’s got a fair bit of experience and covers from full back to centre to wing.

“We’ve got three-quarter cover there and he’s a strike player. Wherever he’s been, he’s scored lots of tries.

“He adds something to us. Obviously, he’s competing in the centres with Lee Smith, Ash Gibson and Ross Oakes so we’re strong there.

“And on the wing, he’s competing with Dalton Grant, Ethan Ryan and Josh Rickett. It’s just adding strength to our three-quarters.

“It’s a long season and you never know when we’ll need him in one or more positions.”

Butler-Fleming, who played at Odsal for Hull KR last year, scored seven tries in 2017. But he felt chances would be limited at the Wolfpack.

He said: “Toronto had a pretty strong line-up out each week and I couldn’t break into the side. The opportunity came up here for some game time and I took it.

“I’ve heard nothing but good things about John and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
