Bradford Bulls have added to their backline options in 2015 with the addition of Chris Ulugia from Queensland Intrust Super Cup side Mackay Cutters.
Ulugia is the third player to join from the Cutters following the recent captures of Dave Petersen and Karl Davies.
The 22-year-old can operate at centre, full-back and on the wing and has signed a two-year deal as Bradford prepare for life in the Kingstone Press Championship.
The former Parramatta Eels junior says he cannot wait to get started, insisting he wants to make a big impact at Provident Stadium.
I am aware of the club's aims for next year and I can assure the Bradford supporters that my eyes are solely fixed on helping the Bulls achieve promotion back up into Super League.
“This is a huge opportunity for me and I am delighted to be joining what is one of the most famous rugby league clubs on the planet,” he told the club’s official website.
“I cannot wait to arrive in England and get pre-season training underway, alongside some of my current team-mates.
“I used to play with Jake Mullaney, so I know him too. That will certainly help with the transition, in terms of getting used to the place and what not.
“I am aware of the club's aims for next year and I can assure the Bradford supporters that my eyes are solely fixed on helping the Bulls achieve promotion back up into Super League.”
Head coach James Lowes was naturally delighted to have bagged Ulugia, commenting: “Chris is a great signing, coming from a club which boasts a fantastic pool of talent.
“Chris is another addition to an already blossoming squad and is a player whose pace and power will certainly prove beneficial next year.”
