Ah Van Switches Sides
New Zealand Warriors utility Aucklander Patrick Ah Van, 22, has signed a one-year contract with West Yorkshire rugby league team Bradford Bulls. Of Ah Van’s switch, Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah told the club website: “Patrick has been part of our NRL squad for several years now … He had an opportunity to take up a contract with Bradford in the Super League and asked for a release. We appreciate the contribution he’s made to the club both in the NRL and NYC and wish him all the best.” Ah Van made his debut for the Warriors in 26 against the Manly Sea Eagles. Since then he has played over thirty-nine games for the club.
