One of London Broncos’ Million Pound Game heroes, Jarrod Sammut, won’t be playing for them in Super League, the club has confirmed.

Sammut, 31, hasn’t been able to agree on a new deal due to personal reasons, according to the club.

The Malta international, who played in Super League previously for Crusaders, Bradford and Wakefield, has spent the past two seasons with the Broncos, scoring more than 560 points in 55 appearances.

The club said in a statement: “Following the club trying everything they could to re-sign Jarrod Sammut he has unfortunately decided that, due to personal reasons, he will be leaving London Broncos.

“We thank Jarrod for his time at the club and wish him luck for his future career.”

Sammut kicked two penalties as the Broncos pulled off a shock 4-2 victory over Toronto Wolfpack in Canada to secure their return to the top flight, from which they were relegated in 2014.

Their unexpected promotion has left them behind the eight ball in terms of recruitment, though they did last week add St Helens centre Ryan Morgan on a season-long loan.

They have also signed Matty Fozard, Nathan Mason, Greg Richards and Jordan Abdull, but are likely to be many people’s favourites for automatic relegation – which returns for the bottom placed side in 2019.
