Eloi Pelissier commits future to London

Drew Darbyshire

London hooker Eloi Pelissier has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The France international – who has earned 16 caps for his country – will remain at the Broncos until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Pelissier joined London towards the end of 2018 and played a key role in helping Danny Ward’s side gain promotion to Super League via the Million Pound Game.

Ward commented: “Eloi is one of the most experienced members of the squad and we are pleased he has committed to the Broncos.

“He is a great professional and a real competitor in all he does.

“He had a big influence when he came in mid-season last year and played a big part in our promotion to Super League.”

Pelissier added: “The first reason that I have re-signed is because of the pleasure I have had since I arrived.

“I like the way we train each week and the philosophy behind that from the coaching staff.

“It is important that we all become better players and better people at the Broncos.

“London is an amazing city but I have enjoyed it alone. Signing a two-year contract now gives me the chance to bring my family here to enjoy the city as much as I do and maybe my son can even learn English.”
