New Bradford Bulls coach Mick Potter has brought in Francis Cummins as his assistant for next season.

Cummins, who has signed a one-year contract after 18 years as a player and coach with Leeds Rhinos, said: "I had a few offers.

"But having met Mick Potter and thought about where Bradford are and the players they have, it was clear this was the right one for me.

"There is a lot of potential at the club without a doubt."

Cummins, whose contract begins on 1 November, added: "Everyone will have to play their part in building on that - myself, the coaching staff, the players."

Potter, who is leaving beaten Grand Finalists St Helens to take over at Odsal, said: "Francis is going to add a lot of value to us, both to the coaching staff and to the players.

"He is joining a strong coaching staff with a good mix of personalities. We believe we have a good balance and people who can complement each other, as we do with our playing roster."
