Bradford Bulls have re-signed former three-quarter Karl Pryce from Wigan on a one-year contract.

The 25-year-old younger brother of ex-England star Leon Pryce, he scored 34 tries in 56 games in his previous stay at Odsal from 2003 until 2006.

He switched codes to join Gloucester before returning to league with Wigan in 2008, but spent last season on loan at Harlequins.

"To play for my hometown club again is special," he told the Bulls website.

"When I was 15, and coming through the ranks at Bradford, I think I took that a little bit for granted."

The versatile back, who can play wing, centre or stand-off, has endured a number of injuries during his career, most notably an ankle fracture that blighted his spell in rugby union and hampered him in his first season at Wigan.

But, after making his Super League comeback in February 2009, he has gone on to score 24 tries in just 31 appearances for the Warriors and Quins.

"I've played in Wigan-St Helens derbies and I'm really looking forward to getting back into a Bradford-Leeds derby again," he continued.

"I'm just delighted to be back here because I've missed the place. I said a couple of years ago that I'd always love to come back to Bradford.

"In fact I said when I left the club five years ago that I'd absolutely love to one day return. I've taken the long way round, via Gloucester, Wigan and Harlequins, but I'm happy to be back."
