London Broncos head coach Joe Grima has further boosted his squad for next season by signing youngsters Iliess Macani, Joel Wicks and Matt Woodburn-Hall to two-year professional deals.
The trio have all graduated from the club's Under-19 side this term, making a number of appearances for the Broncos first team.
"It's great that these young guys have signed up to the club, I see them all as a big part of my first team squad moving forward over the next two seasons," Grima told the club's website.
Macani, 20, has enjoyed the biggest impact so far this season, playing 11 Super League matches and scoring twice for the Broncos.
Nineteen-year-old Woodburn-Hall made just his third Super League appearance in the 42-24 defeat by Widnes Vikings last Saturday and was the Broncos man-of-the-match, impressing at centre and half-back.
Wicks, also 19, has made just two Super League appearances for the Londoners this term, the last of which came against Salford Red Devil on February 22.
Both Macani and Wicks are included in head coach Grima's 19-man squad for Saturday's visit from Wigan Warriors, with Erjon Dollapi, James Duckworth, James Greenwood, Joe Keyes and Mike McMeeken all missing out.
Frenchman Maxime Herold and Jon Wallace return to the travelling party.
