Bradford Bulls have made their 10th signing ahead of the new Super League season with the capture of Canberra Raiders half-back Marc Herbert.

The 23-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the Bulls.

Herbert, who has recovered from an ankle injury that curtailed his season in the NRL, said: "I am really excited to be joining the Bulls.

"Super League will be a different experience for me and I intend to make the most of the opportunity."

He added: "Having spoken to [Bulls coach] Mick Potter I am really looking forward to getting across and into pre-season training."

I have every confidence that he will be a big success in the role I see for him

Potter, who has taken on the coaching job at Odsal after leaving St Helens at the end of last season, said: "Marc is a player I have been aware of for some time.

"I am sure he will make a very good Super League player and he brings a lot of qualities to the side.

"I have spoken to him at length, outlined what I want him to do for the club and I have every confidence that he will be a big success in the role I see for him.

"I know he is really looking forward to joining the Bulls."

Bradford have already signed Matt Diskin (Leeds), Chev Walker (Hull KR), Shaun Ainscough (Wigan), Olivier Elima (Catalans), Bryn Hargreaves (St Helens), Ian Sibbit (Salford), Shad Royston (Halifax) and New Zealander Patrick Ah Van for next season.

Ex-Leeds, Hull and Crusaders winger Gareth Raynor will also join them once he has finished serving his current jail sentence for offences relating to counterfeiting and common assault.
