Bradford Bulls centre Adrian Purtell has signed a new one-year deal.

The 29-year-old joined the Bulls from Penrith Panthers ahead of the 2012 Super League season and has made 46 league appearances in three years.

The Australian spent 10 months on the sidelines after suffering a heart attack in May 2012.

"I see the one-year deal as a launchpad, ahead of what is going to be a massive year for me personally," he said.

Meanwhile, the Bulls have signed Mackay Cutters utility back Chris Ulugia on a two-year deal.

"This is a huge opportunity for me and I am delighted to be joining what is one of the most famous rugby league clubs on the planet," the 22-year-old said.
