Final Signing For Bulls 2015 Squad

Harry Siejka completes the 30-man roster.

James Lowes has put the finishing touches to his new-look Bradford Bulls squad, after completing the signing of scrum-half Harry Siejka.

Siejka, 22, today put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Provident Stadium outfit, completing a 30-man Bulls roster for 2015.

The former Penrith talent burst onto the scene back in 2011 while making his NRL debut for the Panthers, the club he joined for $75,000 – a then record transfer fee for a 16-year-old.

Siejka switched his New South Wales home for New Zealand Warriors prior to the start of last season, before joining St George Illawarra Dragons.

Back in February of this year, the one-time Australian Schoolboys star penned a short-term contract with Super League's Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

Injuries hindered the Australian's progress at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, however, but Bradford boss Lowes is expecting him to hit the ground running when pre-season begins next month.

“I like what I have seen of Harry,” said Lowes, who took over the Bulls coaching reins earlier this year.

“He came over on the back of a pretty bad injury and has not yet managed to fulfil his potential, but he is an excellent scrum-half and we are delighted to have him on board.

“I liken him to Bobby Goulding. He can break the line, has a great kicking game and is the kind of guy who is not afraid of getting stuck in.

“I feel sure Harry has some great years ahead of him and am hoping he will form a solid partnership with Lee Gaskell in the halves.

“They should compliment each other pretty well. Both differ a fair bit in style but we have together a cracking mix here, with young Adam Brook right behind the pair of them.”

Siejka will be introduced to his new team-mates early next month, prior to the prior of pre-season training.
