COLTON Roche has signed a permanent contract with Bulls until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old joined Bradford from Huddersfield on a season-long loan as part of the deal that saw Oliver Wilson join the Giants in April.

Roche has impressed in his appearances in red, amber and black so far and has put pen-to-paper to make his move permanent.

The versatile forward is currently in his second spell as a Bull, having played for the club in 2017, before making the move to the John Smith's Stadium.

Coach John Kear said: "It is great news - you saw the potential of Colton Roche in his first spell here when he ended up earning a Super League contract.

"He is very fresh but he is still learning our structures and the way we play but there is plenty of games for him to do that.

"We are very happy to have him and I am sure he can keep on working to his potential in a Bulls shirt."
