Bulls move for Ben Harris

Bradford Bulls have today announced the capture of Centre Ben Harris from the NRL Club, Canterbury Bulldogs.

Harris, who is 21 years of age, has made 42 appearances for the Bulldogs in the past two seasons and played in their Grand Final success last season but missed the Carnegie World Club Challenge in February because of minor surgery. He has signed a contract to remain at Odsal until the end of the 2007 season.

Bulls Chairman Chris Caisley believes the signing of Harris will be significant for the club:

?He is a tough, uncompromising high quality player who has come from a very high quality environment at the Bulldogs. He broke into their side when he was only 18 and made a major impact playing in 22 games in the 2003 season. He played in last season?s Grand Final and we are delighted we have been able to capture a player of his quality at such a young age. He is just the sort of player we are looking to recruit.?

Bulls Coach Brian Noble said today:

?I believe Ben will be sensational over here. We have worked very hard to obtain Ben?s signing and I am looking forward to having him in the squad for the rest of the season,?
