    <p>Australian halfback Matt Orford can turn Bradford Bulls into Super League title contenders again, his former Manly team-mate Michael Monaghan says.</p>
    <p>Orford joined the Bulls at training on Monday after signing a three-year contract with the side who failed to reach the Super League play-offs for the first time last season.</p>
    <p>Monaghan played alongside Orford at Manly when they were NRL runners-up to Melbourne in 2007 and the Warrington halfback or hooker tipped the 31-year-old recruit to be a hit with Bulls fans.</p>
    <p>"He will make Bradford into a very dangerous side," Monaghan told the Daily Express.</p>
    <p>"They will be one of the big improvers in 2010 and Matt will be up there as one of the best halfbacks in the competition.</p>
    <p>"Matt's kicking game is second to none, he's a great organiser and talks a lot on the field, which lifts confidence."</p>
    <p>Orford will be reunited with old Manly team-mates Steve Menzies, Heath L'Estrange and Glenn Hall at Bradford.</p>
    <p>"Age is not a problem because Matt takes very good care of his body," Monaghan added.</p>
    <p>"He should have represented Australia but was unlucky to be playing in an era of exceptional scrum-halves."</p>
