Sponsor LDMC


Born in Barrow-in- Furness Brad attended Dowdal High School while playing his junior rugby with Askam and Cumbria Storm. Citing his parents as the biggest influence on his career Brad then made the move to Widnes in October 2014 as he set out on his senior career. Having represented England at Youth and Academy level Brad, equally at home in the middle or on the edge, signed a three-year full-time contract in 2015. The highlight of 'Walks' career came when he achieved his ambition of playing for the Vikings in Super League, against Castleford in 2016, with further appearances coming in subsequent seasons. The skilful forward captained England Academy v France in May 2016 and was also ever-present on the tour to Australia in July. Brad is another player to benefit from the dual registration arrangement with North Wales Crusaders and away from the game he enjoys relaxing and playing on his PlayStation
