Winger Tupou joins Wests Tigers

Tame Tupou
Tupou's Bulls career has been blighted by injury

Bradford winger Tame Tupou has put his injury nightmare behind him by signing for Australian side Wests Tigers.

The 26-year-old was dismissed by the Bulls in January due to long-running injury problems.

He had been serving a six-month notice period and was continuing to train with the Bulls.

A Bradford statement said: "Bradford Bulls have agreed to the request of Wests Tigers to release Tame Tupou's registration with immediate effect."

Tupou arrived at the Bulls in 2007 and made an instant impact with 10 tries in his opening 12 Super League games, but he has been out of action for more than a year following knee surgery.

The former Kiwi international and Brisbane Broncos star could find himself lining up alongside Bradford's Sam Burgess.

The England international has attracted the interest of a number of Australian clubs.
