Bulls youngsters sign up
Relegated Bradford Bulls have announced the re-signing of promising teenagers Alex Mellor, Nathan Conroy, Sam Bates and Adam Brook ahead of their Kingstone Press Championship campaign in 2015.
Back-row forward Mellor and hooker Conroy, both 19, have signed new 12-month deals, while 18-year-old prop Bates and 19-year-old half-back Brook have secured two-year contracts.
Mellor has made nine substitute First Utility Super League appearances over the last two years and is tipped by Bulls coach James Lowes for a bright future.
"Alex is an exceptional young player who has risen through the club's academy ranks in recent years," said Lowes, who now has an 18-strong squad for 2015.
"He has all of the attributes and potential to become a key player here."
