Bradford Bulls have announced the signing of outside back Eldon Myers on a two-year deal, effective immediately.
Myers was on trial at Hull FC, but could not take up a contract there, due to him also being a serving member of the Royal Navy.
Reacting to the news, he said: “It feels good to finally be down here – it has been a long time coming and finally putting pen to paper and getting involved is great.
“I got contacted around December time about this season but unfortunately I couldn’t get signed off from work to come here but thankfully I am able to come down and catch the back end of the season.
“I cannot wait to get started, it will be nice to get out there and play some decent rugby and going back to work after my trial at Hull – to play no rugby with COVID was a nightmare so to be getting back involved and getting back out there will be class.”
Head Coach John Kear added: “I am really excited I think he is a great athlete, tough, strong and will certainly add some strike to the three quarters.
“We have spoken to some members of the Castleford staff and they feel we have done a good job in getting him over the line.
“Eldon will do a great job think the fans will love him as they see him lots of improvement to come but he is a very good player at this moment in time.”
