BRADFORD Bulls have extended prop forward Ross Peltier and halfback Dane Chisholm’s contracts. Peltier and Chisholm have both agreed to stay at the club for another two years.
Peltier who re-joined the club last November said on his new deal: “I’m really happy to have re-signed for this club. When I first joined this club last year it felt like a dream come true, so to commit two more years here was an easy choice.
“There’s no doubt that it has been a tough year and I did have a few other offers from people in the league, but I always knew in my mind that I wanted to re-sign for this club.
“I feel like I’ve made a lot of progression here and made some real strides forwards to improve my game.
“The only way is up for this club now. We have come out of the back of a tough season and people are only going to be better for it.”
Chisholm signed for the Bulls back in April, and he is now ready to commit his long term future to the side, despite relegation. The 27 year old has had a frustrating year due to a knee injury, and he is hoping 2018 will be more successful.
Chisholm commented: “I love it at this club, ever since I joined here it’s always felt like home. I love to play my footy at Bradford.
“It’s been a pretty frustrating year but I know that everything is going to be alright. I’ve still got four or five months of rehab, but if it’s good I could be back in three or four. It depends how the rehab goes.
“I can’t wait to get back on the field. I have a heap of good mates in this team, I just want to get my knee right and get back playing.
“We’ve got players like Lee Smith and Ashley Gibson, if we get a few more older heads to put a bit more of them in with the younger boys, because we have some great talents in these young boys, we’ll be fine.
“All credit to the lads that have been out there playing each week and putting their bodies on the lines.
“Sometimes a few of the boys were feeling a bit down at some points in the year, but as soon as we get out on the field they always got out there and gave it a good crack.
“These situations can only get better, this club has huge things ahead of it and I’m really happy that I’m going to be a part of it.”
