Betfred Championship Bradford Bulls

Bulls sign Evans for 2019

After his departure from Leigh Centurions, Betfred Championship newcomers Bradford Bulls have secured the services of centre Rhys Evans until the end of the 2019 campaign.

The Warrington Wolves academy graduate made over a century of appearances for the Halliwell Jones Stadium club before joining Leigh ahead of last season, linking up with a team he represented on loan in 2011. However, despite signing a two-year deal with the Centurions ahead of 2018, the club’s financial difficulties saw Leigh having to clear all of their contracted players out. Evans and fellow recent departure Kevin Larroyer (Halifax) were the last two to move on after turning down Leigh’s settlement offers to terminate their contracts. After their departures from the Centurions were agreed, though, Evans became one of the better free agents still available – and John Kear’s Bulls moved to add the 26-year-old to their ranks.

Having already signed former Castleford and interational centre Jake Webster for next season, Evans will likely form part of one of the most experienced and threatening centre partnerships in the second tier in 2019. After confirming his arrival, Kear told the club’s official site that he believes the former Wales international will make a big impact at the club. “With his introduction, there’s going to be even further competition for places in an extremely impressive three-quarter line. He brings a lot of experience to the side and we know from his career history that he is going to be a menace in the Championship,” he explained.
