Kaufusi returns to Huddersfield


9th June 2014

Tonga international Antonio Kaufusi has opted to end his loan spell at Bradford Bulls and return to his parent club Huddersfield Giants. 

The 29-year-old former London Broncos front rower has spent the past five weeks at the Provident Stadium but has rejected the Bulls' offer of a season-long deal.

Bradford coach Francis Cummins, whose side are involved in a tough relegation battle, said: "We are really disappointed to see Antonio go back to Huddersfield as we would have liked to have kept hold of him until the end of the year.

"We fully appreciate Antonio's desire to fulfil his original commitments, though, and wish him all the very best for the future."

Kaufusi, who played in the NRL for Melbourne, Newcastle and North Queensland before moving to First Utility Super League – made four appearances for the Bulls.
