FORMER Warrington Wolves prop Anthony England has been signed by Championship club Bradford on a 12-month contract following his release by Wakefield.

The 33-year-old, who had two seasons with The Wire, becomes the Bulls' second Super League recruit for 2020 following the capture of Salford winger Greg Johnson.

Bradford coach John Kear said: "I am absolutely delighted. Anthony is a tough, rugged, hard-working prop forward who will dovetail into what we are trying to do here."

England said: "When someone like John Kear rings you up, the decision is already made.

"Running out in front of the Bradford supporters will be a real moment of pride. I watched the club when I was younger at Odsal and the fans are a very passionate group."

England, who has also had spells with Castleford Tigers and Dewsbury Rams, made his Wire debut in 2014 and went on to play in 39 games, scoring three tries.
