Bradford hand trial to Caprice

Bradford Bulls have handed former rugby union star Dan Caprice a trial.

The 26-year-old came through the academy at Saracens rugby union before leaving for France, where he played for French Top 14 side Biarritz.

Caprice featured heavily for England Sevens between 2008 and 2011, scoring 24 tries in the HSBC World Series. He also made several appearances for England Sevens at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

The utility player also had a spell in New Zealand with Northland in the ITM Cup in 2012 before returning to England, where he stayed with rugby union and joined London Welsh.

“We are really looking forward to seeing Dan in action,” said Bradford’s managing director Steve Ferres.

“He’s had an exciting career so far and we look forward to the next stage of his career in rugby league.”
