Broncos bag Wales international

London Broncos have continued preparing for life in the Kingstone Press Championship by signing Wales international centre/wing Rhys Williams on a two-year deal for the 2015 season.

The 24-year-old played 29 games for Warrington having made his Wolves debut 2010 while he has also played for Crusaders, Castleford Tigers and Salford.

Williams, who has 13 caps for Wales, has been playing for Central Queensland Capras in the Intrust Super Cup in Australia and is looking forward to moving to the capital.

"I'm very excited to be joining the Broncos next season,\" he said. "Living in London, where my brother and sister won't be too far away, is a big advantage after being in Australia for a year.

"The challenge of getting back into Super League is one I'm looking forward to as well as playing under Joey. His enthusiasm certainly shines through and his plans for changing the culture at the club are exciting.

"I'm looking forward to playing alongside Josh Cordoba. He's played under Joey before and is an experienced player who will know the standards that Joey will set in order for the culture to change to make this team successful. He could be very instrumental in doing this.\"

Head coach Joey Grima is delighted to add Williams to his squad saying: "I'm really pleased that Rhys will join us next season. He will add some pace to our back line and has the versatility, strength and speed to play at centre and wing.

"Rhys will move from Australia to London in time for our pre-season which begins at the start of November as we prepare for the season ahead in the Championship.\"
