Bradford Bulls have signed half-back Jarrod Sammut from Crusaders.

The 24-year-old Australian moves from the troubled Welsh side to Odsal on a one-year deal from next season.

Bulls coach Mick Potter told BBC Radio Leeds: "He's a player that can win matches and that can play numerous positions.

"He'll come up with an extraordinary play, sometimes he'll over do it, but he's got exceptional speed and very good vision."

Potter also revealed that the deal to bring Sammut to West Yorkshire was done before the decision by Crusaders on Tuesday to withdraw their Super League application.

"He was a little bit distracted and had contact with his manager before, and it was fortuitous that he was allowed to talk to other clubs if he saw fit," said Potter.

"There's stability here and perhaps that was missing at Crusaders given that they moved from one place to another and didn't really have a secure facility.

"He was a little bit flighty and it's good that we've got a stable facility and environment here. The club is rock-solid and we've got some good people here."
