Bradford Bulls have completed the signing of Welsh international forward Ben Evans for the 2021 season.
The 28-year-old is the twin brother of Bulls centre Rhys. He joins Bradford for a second time after a short spell at the club back in 2013.
Welsh international Evans boasts Championship and Super League experience following spells at London Broncos, Toulouse Olympique and Warrington Wolves.
And the forward is hoping that experience can help Kear’s side in 2021 – starting with a mouthwatering season opener at Sheffield Eagles.
Reacting to the news, Evans said: “Coming over with Rhys [Evans] today has brought back some good memories from the last time I was here and I am looking forward to getting started.
“I have worked with John for the last couple of years now – I know him well on and off the field and I am looking forward to working with him and the strong squad he has built.”
Head Coach John Kear added: “I am really pleased – fortunately we were in the right place at the right time with Ben and with Sam’s injury we moved very quickly and Ben is a very good signing and a statement of intent.
“He brings hard work, the ability to play long minutes and that is what we need at this moment in time – he will be very important to us.”
