Wigan Warriors have announced the signing of London Broncos’ academy forward Kai Pearce-Paul on a four year deal.

Pearce-Paul has represented Lancashire at Academy Origin level, and has impressed the club’s recruitment team in a string of dominant performances at academy level.

He will also study at UCLAN whilst at the Warriors, linking up with the senior squad.

Wigan Warriors Executive Director, Kris Radlinski said: “We have identified Kai as player for the future and he’ll be joining a very competitive squad where he has seasoned internationals in his position to learn from.  In the Academy games against London Broncos last year, he was very difficult to handle and he made us all take notice. We’re excited to see him develop in a Wigan Warriors jersey over the next few years.”

Speaking about his move to the Warriors, Pearce-Paul said: “I can’t wait to get involved. It’ll be a tough challenge, but an enjoyable one and I’m really looking forward to the move. After speaking to Adrian (Lam), Kris (Radlinski) and Matty (Peet) they were all supportive and made me feel very welcome so I knew that the move to Wigan will be the right one for me.”
