The 23-year-old former Sydney Roosters player, who has made 23 appearances in his first season in England, has signed a new 12- month deal and becomes the 11th confirmed member of coach James Lowes' squad for their 2015 Championship campaign.

"I am really pleased to be staying because I love it here," said Henry. "The club wanted me to stay and the main thing for me was Jimmy (Lowes).

"He has put a lot of faith in me and pretty much played me every week since taking over as coach. That was the main reason why I chose to stay, as he is backing me all the way.

"In addition to that, our supporters have been very welcoming and I would like to thank them for all the love they have shown me since I joined the Bulls."

Lowes believes that Henry, a Premiership-winning player with New Zealand Warriors Under-20s, can become a key figure at the Provident Stadium.

"Adam is a player with great attacking flair and I like a lot of what he does," Lowes said. "He certainly has something to offer the team and I am hoping, over the next few years, he can flourish and become a key figure in our side.

"He is young and still has a lot to learn, but has bags of potential and I am delighted that we have been able to secure his services."
