Leigh Centurions have announced the signing of forward Jacob Jones from London Broncos for the 2022 season.
Jones, who comes from Birmingham, is a product of the London Broncos academy. He spent time out on loan with Coventry Bears before breaking into the Broncos first team.
Reacting to the news, Jones said: “I started out playing Rugby Union but watched Super League on television and the game really appealed to me.
“I had a trial at London Broncos and was signed by them before being loaned to Coventry for a season. That season was great for me personally and I went back to Broncos and forced my way into the first team.
“I can’t thank Danny Ward and Jamie Langley enough for all the help they gave me with coaching and development. The set up at Leigh is quality and I can’t wait to get out there and play in front of the fans.”
Head of Rugby Chris Chester added: “ Jacob is a young kid who we did our homework on. Danny Ward spoke highly about him. He has bags of energy, great leg speed and a good engine. He will learn a lot from people like Joe Wardle and Joel Tomkins.”
