London Broncos have pulled off a major coup in signing Fiji international Sitiveni Moceidreke for the 2022 Championship season.

The 27-year-old has won six caps for Fiji since making his international debut in 2014. He will be hoping to play in his second World Cup this autumn after featuring in the 2017 tournament.

Moceidreke is primarily a full-back but is comfortable playing on the wing or at centre.

He has made one NRL appearance during his career, which came in 2017. He played on the wing for South Sydney Rabbitohs in a derby clash against their rivals Sydney Roosters, scoring a try.

The Sydney-born back has previously been in the systems at Melbourne Storm, St George Illawarra Dragons, North Sydney Bears and the Rabbitohs.

Moceidreke joins the likes of Paul Ulberg, Iliess Macani and Hull youngster Jude Ferriera in London’s backline in 2022.

A London statement read: “His signing is subject to Visa approval but the club and player expect no issues with the process.

“It is hoped that Moceidreke is available to make his Broncos debut at the Cherry Red Records Stadium at the end of this month.”
