London Broncos have continued their recruitment drive ahead of starting life in the Championship by signing Welsh international hooker, Rhys Williams, on a two-year deal.

The 24-year-old joins London having most recently played for Australian outfit, Central Queensland Capras.

A hooker-cum-wing, Williams has 13 full international caps for Wales and represented his country at the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

The 5ft 11in, 14st 13lb forward began his professional career with Warrington and took in loan spells at Crusaders, Castleford Tigers and Salford City Reds before moving to Australia in 2014 for the Intrust Super Cup.

Speaking to the club’s website, Williams said: "The challenge of getting back into Super League is one I'm looking forward to as well as playing under Joey. His enthusiasm certainly shines through and his plans for changing the culture at the club are exciting."

"This alongside living in London, where my brother and sister won't be too far away, is a big advantage after being in Australia for a year.

"I'm looking forward to playing alongside Josh Cordoba. He's played under Joey before and is an experienced player who will know the standards that Joey will set in order for the culture to change to make this team successful. He could be very instrumental in doing this."

Head coach, Joe Grima, added: "I'm really pleased that Rhys will join us next season. He will add some pace to our back line and has the versatility, strength and speed to play at centre and wing.”

Mynnyd Isa-born Williams will join up with the Broncos in time for the start of pre-season in November.
