  3. London Skolars are pleased to announce the signing of Australian full back Joseph Burchell on a one-year deal. The 22-year-old will now link up with the team for pre-season training in preparation for the 2019 Betfred League 1 season. Jermaine Coleman, London Skolars’ Head Coach, commented: “We are excited to have Joseph on board. He’s a tall, strong, athletic young man who will pose threat on the edge or coming in the line from full back. We’re looking forward to seeing how he develops over the course of the season.” Hector McNeil, London Skolars’ CEO, added: “Joseph should add a real threat for us at the back. He is our fourth new recruit and the squad is building very nicely for us to take on the best next year.” Burchell has experience at the highest level having spent the past four seasons with the likes of NRL side Canterbury Bulldogs as well as Queensland Cup clubs Wynnum Manly Seagulls, Northern Pride and Souths Logan Magpies. He played for the Queensland Maroons under-18s State of Origin team in 2014, which was coach by current South Sydney Rabbitohs Head Coach Anthony Seibold. Burchell said: “I’m delighted to have joined London Skolars for the 2019 season. I can’t wait to join the lads for preseason training and show the English game what I have to offer.”

    i think a lot of malaise crept into the game this year. Superleague & CCF especially. i think that carried over here. weird tho as this england team led by Bennett is one of the best ive seen and full of confidence. hope it puts some umph into SuperLeague next season.

  11. London Skolars have completed the signing of winger Iliess Macani. The 24-year-old, who spent a short time on loan at Skolars last season, has put pen to paper on a year-long contract with the club ahead of the 2019 campaign. Jermaine Coleman, London Skolars Head Coach, commented: “We are really excited to welcome a player of Iliess’ quality to our ranks. He proved his ability while on loan last year and will add some real pace and threat to our attack. His professionalism and experience will help our group develop and improve.” Hector McNeil, London Skolars CEO, added: “This is an important signing for the club in preparation for an important 2019 season. Iliess is a player of real quality, proven Championship quality, and someone the fans will enjoy watching pull on the London Skolars shirt and take to the field. He is also a Skolars junior from Harringey which makes it extra special. We are all delighted to have got this deal over the line.” Born in Tottenham, just a short journey from New River Stadium, Macani began his career with London Broncos, where he spent three years in the first team. He made 68 appearances and scored 26 tries during his time with the Broncos and enjoyed his first loan stint at Skolars in 2014. Macani signed for Bradford Bulls in 2017 and in his only season with the Yorkshire club he scored 10 tries in 25 games. At the end of the campaign he moved to Sheffield Eagles, before joining the Skolars on loan for the second time in his career. Four tries in five games for the Skolars ensured Macani caught the eye of Skolars Head Coach Jermaine Coleman, who has now secured the services of the winger for the entire 2019 campaign. Macani said: “I’m delighted to be re-joining London Skolars and cannot wait to get started. I’ve missed London and felt I needed to come back home. It always feels right being in this city and I’m excited to be playing for my boyhood club once again.”

    if everyone who had made a comment or moan on here bought two tickets we would have sold out wembley by now the best comments or moans for me are whilst the games are being played. i never understand that complaining about why no one goes to the game when you arent at the game for me we should forget about the RFL & how good or bad they are and just get behind the squad and coaches. they are who matters
