Marcus Bai to join Bradford

engage Super League Champions Bradford Bulls have today that former Leeds Rhinos winger Marcus Bai will join the club for the 2006 season.

Bai, who was with Melbourne Storm, for whom he scored 70 Tries in 138 games, before enjoying a two year stint at Headingley, scored 45 Tries in 63 appearances for the Rhinos and made his final appearance in last Saturday?s Grand Final defeat by the Bulls.

Marcus Bai said today:

This is a great move for me. To go from the Champions to the Champions is fantastic! I like living in the area and my family are settled here. I am looking forward to linking up with Brian Noble and his team and really looking forward to playing at Odsal.?

Bulls Coach Brian Noble said:

?Marcus is a great signing for us. He has had a tremendous try scoring record throughout his career and as soon as we became aware of his availability we moved quickly to secure his signature. He is fast and strong and will compliment Lesley Vainikolo tremendously. He is the type of winger we like at Bradford and have lacked on our right wing since the departure of Tevita Vaikona.?
