Rising Kiwi star pens new Bulls deal
Bradford Bulls have unveiled talented three-quarter Adam Henry as the eleventh addition to head coach James Lowes' squad for 2015.
The 23-year-old New Zealander arrived from Sydney Roosters prior to the start of last season and has today put pen to paper on a new one-year deal with the club.
Henry, who can operate at centre and on the wing, has developed into a first-team regular this term - making more than 20 appearances in Bulls colours.
The former Newtown Jets star is loving life under Bradford boss Lowes and has spoken of his excitement, having agreed to remain a Bull for a further 12 months.
“I am really pleased to be staying because I love it here,” said Henry.
“The club wanted me to stay and the main thing for me was Jimmy (Lowes).
“He has put a lot of faith in me and pretty much played me every week since taking over as coach. That was the main reason why I chose to stay, as he is backing me all the way.
“He said all the hard work would pay off and in the past two games we have beaten Wigan and Leeds.
“In addition to that, our supporters have been very welcoming and I would like to thank them for all the love they have shown me since I joined the Bulls.”
Coach Lowes believes Henry, a former Premiership-winning player with New Zealand Warriors Under-20s, can become a key figure at the Provident Stadium.
Henry has bagged five tries in First:Utility Super League this term and Lowes says he wants to see further development from the Auckland-born talent.
“Adam is a player with great attacking flair and I like a lot of what he does,” added Lowes, who this summer took over the coaching reins.
“He certainly has something to offer the team and I am hoping, over the next few years, he can flourish and become a key figure in our side.
“He is young and still has a lot to learn, but has bags of potential and I am delighted that we have been able to secure his services.
“He is happy to be here and we are happy to have him on board for next season.”
