Huddersfield Giants sign Oliver Roberts from Bradford Bulls

Huddersfield Giants sign back-row Oliver Roberts from relegated Bradford Bulls on a two-year deal.

Huddersfield Giants have completed the signing of back-row Oliver Roberts from relegated Bradford Bulls.

The 18-year-old has moved to the John Smith's Stadium on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Roberts made five Super League appearances in two years for Bradford, though he spent the second half of last season on the sidelines with a broken leg.

"Bradford offered me a deal to stay when I regained fitness from injury but I wanted to stay in the Super League competition if at all possible after our relegation," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"The Giants expressed interest and as I live really close and played amateur rugby with a few of the boys there I know how good a setup it is and I am joining a top-four club."

Huddersfield reached the preliminary semi-finals of last season's Super League playoffs before they were beaten by Catalans Dragons.
