MULLANEY RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA
Written by STAFF WRITERS, December 7, 2015
ENGLISH rugby league side Bradford have confirmed that Jake Mullaney has returned to Australia.
The former Parramatta fullback’s girlfriend became homesick so the club granted a release on compassionate grounds.
Mullaney, 25, played 17 games for the Bulls since joining the club at the start of last season from Salford. He only signed a two-year contract extension less than three months ago.
The Bulls managing director, Steve Ferres, said: “Obviously, losing Jake came as a blow as he was integral to the team moving forward.
“However, we fully understand his reasons and agreed that it was best for both parties for him to return to Australia.
“Jake has reiterated a desire to play for the Bulls and if the opportunity arose to move back to England he is contractually obliged to inform the club.”
Mullaney said: “I want to thank the club and Bulls fans for the amazing support over the past 12 months.
“I really enjoyed my time playing alongside the squad and in front of such passionate supporters.
“My partner and I have taken the tough decision to return to Australia to be closer to family and we would like to thank the Bulls for allowing us to do so.”
Should we have a crack…cover for the cover perhaps…?
