London snap up Toulouse star Rhys Curran

London have signed back-rower Rhys Curran from Toulouse on a two-year contract.

The 30-year-old came through the system at NRL side Wests Tigers before moving to France with Villeneuve in 2012.

Curran made the switch to Toulouse in 2016, scoring 52 tries in 95 games for the club. He has earned three caps for France.

He said: “I am really looking forward to getting over and meeting everybody now and getting stuck in to pre-season training with the boys.”

“I have spoken to Will Barthau and Ben Evans about London and both have said what a professional club it is with a great bunch of boys.”

“After meeting Danny Ward [coach] and playing against London over the last few years, it has made me really excited about working with everyone at the club.

“As for Toulouse, I would like to thank them for granting me an early release from my contract and understanding my decision in wanting to change clubs – but most of all for the good memories over the last four years there.”

London coach Danny Ward added: “Rhys has been one of the standout back-rowers in the competition for the last few years and we are looking forward to him joining the Broncos.”
