Bradford Bulls, the renowned rugby league team, is pleased to announce the acquisition of formidable forward, Dan Okoro, on loan until the culmination of the season. The 20-year-old athlete joins the Bulls from his parent club, Hull Kingston Rovers, after showcasing his talent in seven appearances for Newcastle Thunder earlier this year.
Standing at an impressive height of 6 feet 3 inches, Okoro brings a wealth of experience to the Bulls, having also represented Nigeria on the international stage, where he contributed two goals for the West African nation.
Interim Head Coach Lee Greenwood expresses his satisfaction with the recent addition, emphasising that Okoro’s arrival strengthens the team’s forward pack, transforming it into a “powerful unit” for the remainder of the season.
Greenwood comments, “We have been light on front rowers, we lost three in one week and it left us short as you could see on Monday night, so he adds size for the rest of the season as he is a powerful unit”
Furthermore, Greenwood acknowledges the loan spell as an excellent opportunity for Okoro to showcase his skills and attract potential suitors. The young forward’s contract with Hull Kingston Rovers is set to expire at the end of the year, with no offer currently on the table.
“If he goes really well, he likes us and we like him, there is a good chance for him to receive an offer from us, that is an option but other than that it is an opportunity to put himself in the shop window.”; Greenwood explains.
As Bradford Bulls look to make a significant impact in the upcoming matches, the addition of Dan Okoro brings optimism and excitement to the team, solidifying their ambition to achieve success in the league.
