Red Star Belgrade have signed USA internationals Brandon Anderson and Jamil Robinson for the 2019 season.
Anderson and Robinson – both of whom are threequarters – have previously plied their trade in America for Brooklyn Kings.
Red Star enjoyed their most successful season to date in 2018, having won the Serbian Championship, Balkan Super League, Serbian Cup and Serbian Supercup.
Discussions are underway for USA to play Serbia at Belgrade’s home ground on the international weekend in June 2020.
They will make history this year as they will compete in the Challenge Cup for the first time. Their historic first round tie away at Millom – the oldest amateur rugby league club in the world – will be streamed live via the BBC Sport website.
BBC Sport and the RFL will live stream one game from each of the first five rounds of the 2019 Challenge Cup. When the competition reaches the round six and beyond, matches will be shown live on BBC1 and BBC2 over each weekend.
