London Broncos add Australian hooker to their ranks

London Broncos Plough Lane

Championship outfit London Broncos have signed Australian hooker Calum Gahan from Queensland Cup side Norths Devils for the 2022 season.

Gahan is expected to link up with the Broncos next week. He will offer coach Jermaine Coleman further options at hooker and in the halves.

Coleman said: “He follows the trend of signings we have made with the fact he is young, eager and is of good character.

“Calum worked alongside a very good friend of mine in Australia and he has given me an excellent insight into Calum and what he can offer.

“He likes to challenge his opponent and ask questions of their defence. He will add some competition to our current group of half-backs and hookers.

“Calum is an exciting player and will certainly add punch to both our attack and defence.”

Elsewhere in the Championship: Dec Patton quick to extend Bradford stay

Bradford half-back Dec Patton has signed a contract extension with the Bulls, keeping him there until the end of 2023.

Patton arrived at the club ahead of the 2022 season from Super League side Salford. He scored a try in their Championship opener against Dewsbury on Sunday.

He now joins half-back partner Jordan Lilley in committing his future at the club for next season.

Patton said:“I am over the moon to have signed, I know it has only been a short time but the way pre-season has gone and the fact we went pretty well in our fits game we can start building.

“I have fallen back in love with the game with the set of lads we have here. I am enjoying my rugby and enjoying training so it was a no-brainer.

“The number one goal is playing well week in, week out and hopefully push for top spot and promotion. For myself, I have been trying to help the team but I need to work on myself more and help the team that way.
