Bulls turn it up to the Max

Bradford Bulls are delighted to announce the signing of Brisbane Tigers’ three-quarter Max Lehmann on a deal until the end of the season – subject to international clearance.

The 24-year-old joins from the Queensland Cup outfit where he has scored 16 tries in 22 appearances since his debut in 2023.

Lehmann is an American-born speedster, who can play in the centre or on the wing, and links up with ‘best mate’ Zac Fulton in the red, amber and black.

Having seen how Zac has kicked on since his arrival earlier this year, Max is eager to make a similar impact.

“I’m really excited to join the Bradford Bulls, it’s such a historic club with a history of success. I can’t wait to add to that history,” said Lehmann, who will be sponsored In Memory of the Trotter Family.

“I’ve always wanted to play sports overseas and travel when I can. It’s the best opportunity to do both, so when the chance came I wanted to take it with both hands.

“I would describe myself as a strong outside back with good hands and strong finishes.

“Zac is my best mate and I’ve seen him start to really enjoy his footy here at Bradford and as a result his game has gone to another level. I’ll be aiming to make the same impact in the areas of the game where I’m involved.

“To the Bulls fans I’d like to say that I’m super excited to join the club and that I can’t wait get this club back into the Super League.”

Bradford boss Eamon O’Carroll has spoken of his delight at capturing a long-term target in Lehmann, who he believes will add quality and depth to his outside backs.

“Max is a player we have been monitoring for a number of months now. After conversations with Max, it was clear he has a real eagerness to come and be a part of what we are trying to do,” said O’Carroll, who is sponsored by M & S Combustion Ltd.

“I’ve had really positive feedback from people in Australia about his character and his work ethic so I am confident that, like other players we have brought in this year, he will add to our group.

“Max has the ability to play wing or centre, giving us quality and strength in depth which is a huge positive for us. I look forward to welcoming him to our club.”

We anticipate receiving VISA clearance for Max imminently, with a view to him arriving within the next two weeks.
