York City Knights have added more firepower to their 2020 Betfred Championship pack with the signing of James Green from Bradford Bulls.
The towering 28 year old prop forward started his career at Hull KR and made 81 Super League appearances for the Robins between 2012 and 2016, before moving on to spells in Super League at Leigh Centurions in 2017 and Castleford Tigers in 2018. He joined Bradford Bulls in 2019 and featured prominently in their Championship campaign. To date he has made 149 career appearances, scoring 5 tries.
Knights Head Coach James Ford said: “James will strengthen our forward pack with his experience and metres. He has a strong carry in him and his off the ball efforts will help other players go forward. He has the potential to excite our fans.”
“I’m excited to work with James and facilitate his drive to get back to his very best.”
Green added: “I’m looking forward to getting started with a club that’s clearly going in the right direction on and off the field. It’s an exciting time for all Involved and I can’t wait to be a part of that in 2020.
“Having met with Fordy and the plan he has laid out for next year made my decision to join the Knights an easy one. I can’t wait to get in for pre season with everyone and begin that journey of hopefully taking the club one step further.”
