London sign prop Romain Navarrete from Wigan

London Broncos have signed prop Romain Navarrete from Wigan ahead of the 2021 Championship season.

The 26-year-old has made 60 appearances for Wigan between 2017-20, and has enjoyed spells at Catalans and Wakefield. He has earned seven caps for France.

Navarrete said: “I am very excited to have signed for London after speaking with Danny (Ward) and learning of the desire to get the club back to Super League, and I think with my new team-mates we can do that.

“This will be a real challenge and it motivates me to deliver for Danny and the rest of the boys. I know a few of the players already and I am excited about getting started with them and settling in, as well as meeting the London fans when they can get back to the games.”

Broncos coach Danny Ward said: “We are Delighted to have Romain on board with the Broncos for 2021.

“Props are certainly an area we’ve been looking to strengthen after losing Buttie (Rob Butler) and Big Norm (Dan Norman) and Romain is just what we’ve been looking for.

“He’s a quality middle with lots of experience at the top with Wigan. We can’t wait to get him over and start working with him in pre-season.”
