Bradford Bulls have signed former Hull and Wigan front-rower Epalahame Lauaki on a two-year contract.

The New Zealander, 30, joins the Bulls, who were relegated for the first time from Super League last season, from Australian NRL side Manly Sea Eagles.

Lauaki becomes the 30th player signed up for the 2015 Championship campaign.

"Epalahame is an extremely talented individual. We are really pleased to have secured his services," said Bradford coach James Lowes.

Lauaki, released by Wigan in January, said: "I believe I will bring some experience and toughness to our team and I cannot wait to get started."
