Broncos loan Greenwood

London Broncos have signed Wigan Warriors prop James Greenwood on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old is departing the Warriors on a temporary basis for the second time after a spell on dual registration with partner club South Wales Scorpions last season.

He also made his first-team debut for Wigan last year as a substitute in the Challenge Cup home tie against Leigh before making one further appearance from the bench.

Warriors head coach Shaun Wane said: "This is a great opportunity for James to gain some experience at the highest level.

Regular action

"It will give him the chance to play regularly in Super League with London and it will also offer him some stability off the field knowing he is with the Broncos for the whole year.

"This agreement for the 2014 campaign works well for both parties, the Broncos will get a determined young player who is keen to impress and he will come back to us in 2015 hopefully an even better player."

Broncos head coach Tony Rea added: "We are excited to welcome James to the capital.

"He is a powerful player who has developed a real presence on the field. It is a terrific move for all concerned."
