London Broncos have continued to strengthen ahead of the 2015 season with the capture of prop forward Josh Cordoba on a two-year deal.

Cordoba, 30, will join the Broncos ahead of the 2015 campaign and the club’s inaugural season in the Championship.

Boasting a wealth of NRL experience with Parramatta Eels and Cronulla Sharks, the Australian has also turned out for Hull KR in the Super League.

Speaking to the club’s website, Cordoba explained head coach Joe Grima had been the driving force in his signing: "I'm very happy, as soon as I heard Joey Grima had taken over as coach. I told Ray Nasso to give him my number and call me and within an hour he called me.

"We spent a couple of years at Parramatta where we were fairly successful, winning a couple of competitions,” he added. “That's probably one of the main reasons why I wanted to come. I'd like to be part of something and I know what Joey can do as a coach - not only as a coach but in running a club and setting up the way a club should be run."

Added Grima: "I've been fortunate enough to coach Josh at both at the Eels and Sharks. With the professionalism he trains with and the integrity he plays with on the footy field, he's going to be someone that will lead us around the park.

"With him and Nick Slyney in the front row it gives us such a great foundation," Grima added.

Cordoba becomes the 14th player to commit to the Broncos ahead of next season.
