Fresh deal for Diskin


27th June 2013

Bradford Bulls hooker Matt Diskin has signed a new contract for 2014.

The 31-year-old Bulls joint-captain, a four-time Grand Final winner during his time at Leeds Rhinos, was out of contract this year and is delighted to sign a new deal.

"It wasn't just about whether the club wanted to keep me, it was also about whether I wanted to go round again," said Diskin, who has made 61 appearances since joining Bradford from the Rhinos three years ago.

"I've been lucky enough to be part of a very special club here and I still feel I can contribute, as does my coach and team-mates."

Bradford coach Francis Cummins said: "Disko has been good for us and played different roles by coming off the bench and starting games.

"If I thought he couldn't do it any more, I wouldn't have made him an offer but I think he can.

"He's very, very tough and good defensively, plus he's running the environment and the culture of the club along with Chev Walker, Heath L'Estrange and one or two others."
