Wigan Warriors have confirmed the signing of youngster Kai Pearce-Paul from London Broncos on a four year contract.
The second rower impressed for the Broncos academy last season, and he will be in contention for the first team.
“I can’t wait to get involved,” he said.
“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.”
Wigan Warriors Executive Director, Kris Radlinski added: “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.”
