London Skolars have announced the signings of Iliess Macani and Matt Ross on a month’s loan.

Skolars currently find themselves 11th in the Betfred League One season and have added strength to their backs with the signing of Macani on a month’s loan from Sheffield Eagles.

The winger joined Mark Aston’s from Bradford Bulls in the off-season and has scored five tries in nine games.

On the signing, head coach Jermaine Coleman told the club’s official website: “We’re delighted to have Iliess back at the Skolars; a player who knows us well and as a Tottenham boy is a credit to the development structures we have in place in North London.

“He will add even more speed to our back line along with competition for places. I’m sure there will be plenty of Broncos fans in the area keen to see a former hero in action on Saturday.”

Keighley’s Matt Ross, who plays prop forward, will also link up with the side on a one-month loan.
