Bradford have signed Ireland international James Mendeika from Championship rivals Featherstone.

The 23-year-old former Warrington and London Broncos utility back, who appeared in all of Ireland's group games against Australia, Fiji and England in the 2013 World Cup, has joined the Bulls with immediate effect on a deal that takes him through to the end of the 2017 season.

"It is great to be back within a full-time environment and I am looking forward to repaying the faith the club has shown in me," said Mendeika.

Bradford coach James Lowes, who coached Mendeika during his time in charge of Warrington, said: "James is a very talented, up-and-coming player and we are pleased to have secured his services.

"Injuries have set him back a little over the past couple of years but he has a long career ahead and he is certainly looking to make a name for himself here."
