London Broncos have announced the signing of Patrick Moran from French side SO Avignon until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old prop has arrived in the UK and is now undergoing a 10-day isolation period.
Moran described signing for the Broncos as a great opportunity, adding he shares the club’s collective ambition to win promotion back into the Super League.
Reacting to the news, he said: “The Broncos have such a great history and I’m really excited to get going.
“My time in France with SO Avignon has been fantastic and I’d recommend playing abroad to any player wishing to fulfil a new life experience.
“But when the opportunity to join the Broncos was on the table I didn’t hesitate. I feel like I’ve been playing well recently and hope to make a positive impact on the club and its ambition to get back into the topflight.”
Head Coach Danny Ward added: “We’re really pleased to have Pat on board and we’re looking forward to working with him.
“He is someone we have looked at for a while, he’s been playing well in France so should be ready to go when he arrives in London. Pat will add some much-needed competition for place in our middle.
“It’s an area we have been looking to strengthen for a while.”
