Bradford Bulls extend Dewsbury dual registration deal

Adam O'Brien

Bradford Bulls have extended their dual registration deal with Championship club Dewsbury Rams for a further year.

All members of the Bulls squad, with the exception of overseas players, will be available to play for Dewsbury.

Head coach Francis Cummins said: "Playing against fully-grown men is absolutely vital for the development of some of our younger guys.

"A fantastic example is Adam O'Brien, who played so well for Dewsbury he won a place in our first team."

Hooker O'Brien, 20, made eight first-team appearances last season and scored his first Super League try in the win at Huddersfield on 3 March.

Cummins continued: "Adam has grown as a player after a year with the Rams, impressing in a good chunk of Championship fixtures, and is now in line to feature heavily for us in Super League next season."

Dewsbury's squad will also benefit from shared training programmes and access to members of Bradford's backroom staff.
