London Broncos have confirmed the signing of French hooker John Boudebza for the remainder of the season.
The 27-year-old joins the club from Elite 1 French side Lezignan. He previously played for Hull KR and has represented his country at international level.
Boudebza said: “It is a great opportunity for me – London is a great club, with great players and staff. They want to be in Super League, and I wanted to be a part of that challenge.
“The Championship is a tough competition, but I think Hull KR and London are ready for the step up.
“I think London could make it back to the highest level, and I want to be a part of that going into the Middle 8s, and after that – who knows?
“I hope I can bring some more Super League experience to the squad, and help the team achieve our goal. My ambitions here are to play as soon as I can, and as well as I can.
“Hopefully I can bring some excitement and energy at this point in the season.”
Broncos’ boss Andrew Henderson added: “John’s an established player, and he’ll bring some value to the team.
“He’s a French international and he’s spent a couple of seasons in Super League recently, so he knows that level of football.
“He’s an exciting talent – he’ll give you some zip around the dummy half area, and he’s a threat in attack. Defensively, he can handle himself in the middle as well.
“He’s a welcome and quality addition, and I think he’ll help take this group forward.”
