Relegation-threatened Bradford have bolstered their attacking options with the addition of Salford winger Danny Williams on a one-month loan.
The 27-year-old, who has spent the past four seasons at the Red Devils, goes straight into contention for the Bulls' Super League fixture against Catalan Dragons on Sunday.
I am looking forward to making the most of this opportunity, Bradford is a big club and I am thankful to be a part of it.
Williams has three tries in nine appearances in 2014, having previously enjoyed stints with Leeds Rhinos, Castleford Tigers, Hull FC, Hull KR and also Newcastle Falcons in rugby union.
Williams is relishing the prospect of featuring for Bradford, claiming he is already focused on fighting for his place in new head coach James Lowes’ line-up.
“I am looking forward to making the most of this opportunity, Bradford is a big club and I am thankful to be a part of it,” he told the club’s official website.
“There is plenty of competition for places in the backline here, which can be only healthy for the club. So, if I train well, hopefully I will get the nod for this weekend.
“It looks as though I will be battling against my parent club, as the Bulls fight for Super League survival.
“And as much as I want Salford to do well, I am a Bradford player now and I want to do my very best for the club.”
Lowes added: “Danny is a very good player and he is a very experienced player. He will certainly add quality to the squad and we are very pleased the opportunity has come along.
“I am sure Danny can enhance what we have already got. It always helps to have competition for places, which is something we do not have enough of at the minute.”
