Bradford sign Samoan rugby union sevens player Phoenix Hunapo-Nofoa on a 12-month contract with an option to extend for two more years.
Bulls co-chairman Graham Lowe, the former Wigan and New Zealand coach, said: "Phoenix will quickly become a favourite of our fans.
"His instinctive attacking and running style will be very exciting to watch. He's been a great player for Samoa on the World Rugby Sevens circuit.
"We have managed to sign him despite a great deal of interest from several NRL clubs.
"He is very excited about being coached by Geoff Toovey and I know Geoff is the type of coach who will get the very best out of him."
Bradford are re-building following the collapse of the old club and began the season on minus 12 points.
A vastly inexperienced team went down 54-24 in their opening game of the season at Hull KR last Sunday. They play their first home game against Rochdale on Sunday.
