Bradford Bulls: Manase Manuokafoa signs new deal

Bradford Bulls prop Manase Manuokafoa has signed a new two-year deal with the Super League side.

The 27-year-old Tonga international is the second player to commit his future to the club in recent days after scrum-half Luke Gale signed a new three-year deal on Saturday.

Manuokafoa joined the Odsal side last October from NRL side Parramatta.

"I'm really happy to have got the deal done, I always wanted to stay here," he told BBC Radio Leeds.

"I had some other options but my family are happy and settled in the city.

"I've enjoyed playing alongside John Bateman so I'm really pleased that he's chosen to stay on too. He's a young guy who can only get better."
