London snap up Warrington half-back

London have signed half-back Morgan Smith from Warrington on a one-year deal.

The 20-year-old, who can play at half-back or hooker, made his debut back in 2016 and has gone on to make 25 first-team appearances.

Smith spent the majority of last season plying his trade for Rochdale Hornets in the Championship on dual-registration.

On joining the Broncos, Smith said: “I am very excited to be given such a great opportunity.

“I know that I am a young player, but I will be looking to force my way into the team.

“I had a taste of Super League at Warrington and I can’t wait to get started now with the boys here in London.”

On signing Smith, London head coach Danny Ward commented: “Morgan is an exciting, young, British half-back who already brings with him Super League experience.

“He has come through the system at a top club and we are looking forward to working with him and continuing his development.”

Warrington chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick added: “Due to our recruitment and retention for 2019, Morgan would have found his playing opportunities limited.

“Therefore, we felt it was best for Morgan’s development to allow him to explore alternative options.

“Morgan’s been the consummate professional during his time at Warrington and moves on with our best wishes.”
