Bradford Bulls hooker Heath L'Estrange has signed a new three-year contract.

The 26-year-old, who joined from NRL side Manly at the start of the 2010 season, signed the new deal after Saturday's victory over Harlequins.

He said: "I'm very relieved. We've wanted to get this done since the start of the year.

"Now we've come to the agreement I'm so happy to be here for the next three years. Bradford is the only club I want to play for," the Australian added.

L'Estrange made 29 appearances in his debut season at Odsal, scoring four tries, and won the player of the year award.

Bulls Coach Mick Potter said: "It's pleasing to have Heath on board for the next three years. He's still only 26 so he's got a lot of rugby league left in him yet.

"He adds some really good things to the team. He gets us over the advantage line, defends well, is strong, enthusiastic and talks well. All the things you'd want from someone in that position."
